Holiday Entertaining With Style And Good Health
It doesn't have to be hard to eat well and healthily over the holidays. But you may need some help from the experts. The November special issue of the American Diabetes Association's consumer magazine, Diabetes Forecast, gives readers nutritious and delicious twists on American, East Asian, and Italian cuisine, with spectacular photography and a dozen great new recipes.
-- Hosting a cocktail party? Go sophisticated with our elegant, modern Asian appetizers. From spicy ginger shrimp skewers to Asian chicken dumplings, these crowd-pleasers let you keep your waistline intact.
-- Tired of the same old turkey dinner? Try our herb- and garlic-infused roasted turkey, a new take on the classic Thanksgiving bird. We pair it with cream of carrot soup, brussels sprouts with ham, and a pumpkin pecan cake you won't believe.
-- Need a break at the end of a busy holiday weekend? An Italian brunch keeps things simple and tasty. A cannellini bean frittata is a fresh alternative to weekend omelettes, while cantuccini (Florentine biscotti) are a tasty treat to round out the meal.
