Healthy Apple Fritters

My husband LOVES apple fritters!  I think he loves anything with baked apples.

I use whole wheat flour in this apple fritters recipe.  Sometimes when using whole wheat flour it gives the recipe a heaviness.   I like to use white wheat.  That helps a lot with the heaviness.

The best wheat to use for this is soft wheat.  I don’t have any soft wheat right now so I used the hard white wheat and it works great!

Healthy Apple Pie

Apple pie is one of the most requested pies for Thanksgiving dinner.  Our  Thanksgiving dinner consists of apple pie every year!  My hubby and kids LOVE apple pie!

This recipe is great because we use apple juice as the sweetener.  Fruit juice is sweet by itself so why not use it as a sweetener as well.   Normally you don’t want to drink a lot of fruit juice because it is almost all sugar without much fiber or other nutrients.

Pomegranate Salad

Pomegranate salad, traditionally known as Dixie salad, is my husband’s family Thanksgiving tradition.  It is so yummy!

If you typically have some kind of fruit salad with your Thanksgiving dinner, try something new this year.

The name, Dixie salad, came about because more than 150 years ago the people in Southern Utah, known as Dixie, made this salad.  In Southern Utah, at Thanksgiving time, the pecans are falling out of the trees and are ready to eat.  Pomegranates are ripe.  And, of course, anywhere you go the apples are ready.  So why not make a salad using these ingredients that are readily available!
