It’s Day 3 of my “30 Recipes in 30 Days” journey, where I’ll share some of my “best of” recipes and tips that take me through the holiday season healthfully and happily. I hope you join me! The menu will feature all of the things that comprise a salubrious diet for both your body and our planet, like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts and beans, and sustainable proteins. In other words, what Cooking & Eating the PK Way looks like in practice.
Yet while the basics of the PK Way look like Harvard’s Healthy Eating Plate (as well they should), I bring in my flair for global flavors—and a tantalizing taste of moderation. In other words, it wouldn’t be the holidays without a little bit of sweetness, and denying ourselves is just folly. And totally unnecessary, I might add, especially if your holidays include remembering to balance what you eat with physical activity. So today, the day before Thanksgiving, I’m sharing with you my recipe for pumpkin whoopie pies with maple buttercream. Sublime. Dreamy. And even made with white whole wheat flour. (Your guests will never know.) Here’s the recipe.
Because shouldn’t everyone have a little whoopie for the holidays?
