Thanksgiving Day, no need for stretchy pants, Cupcakes. YUM!
It’s inevitable that on Thanksgiving day the table will be filled with family, friends, love, and gratefulness. And of course, pies, cookies, cupcakes and other dreamy delights. These mini bites of heaven are both delicious and calorie friendly so you can still enjoy indulging a bit on the holiday without slipping into a food coma. I found this mini muffin tin in Bed Bath & Beyond and I love using it for little cupcakes and muffins or any family gathering. This recipe was a pumpkin spice cupcake with a marshmallow buttercream icing. Doesn’t sound ultra healthy, however these were made with pure pumpkin puree and greek yogurt and because they are mini so are the calories. Enjoy!
With me baking up a storm my husband was kind enough to make us dinner. I had to to snap a picture…Chad and vegetables!! Victory!
Ok, back to cupcakes…
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
Another Thanksgiving Tip: Before you dig into the turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce, start off with a salad with fresh, colorful veggies.
Try not to skip breakfast or lunch thinking “well I’m going to eat enough later” – this could lead to overeating later because you are so hungry.
