Skip The Turkey And Load Up On This Side Dish

Bella Breakdown I’m just gonna say it… Thanksgiving turkey isn’t that good. In fact, it’s kinda bad. There’s no way to get it moist, it lacks flavor and makes you completely exhausted before dessert makes it to the table. If you’re like me and loathe that white slab of meat on your Thanksgiving plate, opt for this delicious side instead. Pumpkin Mac and Cheese with Gruyere and Bacon 1 can pumpkin puree   1 pound macaroni noodles   1 package bacon   1 ½ tablespoons flour   1 pinch salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder   1 ½ cup...

The Perfect Fall Sangria

Bella Breakdown Nothing says holiday season quite like a themed and color-appropriate cocktail. How else will we get through endless hours of small-talk? Drinks. Stressing about all of the shopping and wrapping that needs to be done? Drinks. Need no excuse? Drinks. And with all these cheers, cranberry cocktails and champagne or eggnog get quite redundant after a couple of times. To switch it up, a light and fruity fall sangria will keep you feeling good without getting overly full and keep you feeling social all evening long.

Thanksgiving Dinner In A Handful Of Chips?

Bella Breakdown Ah, Thanksgiving. The one day a year where even health bloggers and dieticians turn a blind eye at processed fats and gorge on buttery mashed potatoes, sugar-loaded pies, and salt bathed turkeys. But what’s better than actual Thanksgiving food? Recreating them into delicious leftovers for days to come. But if your Thanksgiving is anything like mine, there are never leftovers to be found as my mother sends every singles guest home with pounds of food (thanks Mom, I slaved hours over that casserole) and the delicacy of Thanksgiving’s hearty flavors are gone just as quickly as they...
