Roast Turkey with Mushroom Gravy

Sweet Potato Chiffon Pie

Light and fluffy, but with the rich honeyed tones of sweet potatoes and maple, this is a blood-sugar-balancing pie that everyone will enjoy. Whole grain crusts tend to be a bit heartier than the light flaky crusts made of refined flour, but people who eat whole grains regularly have half the rate of diabetes, so it is worth it to give these crusts a try. The sweet potatoes reduce insulin resistance as well, so dig in!

This beautifully colored composed salad has both a variety of textures and flavors.

Pineapple Chicken Kabobs
