    A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans.

    CLEAN EATING SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE
    http://www.bloglovin.com/blogs/feel-...=0&viewer=true

    Serves: 12 servings

    INGREDIENTS
    4 medium sweet potatoes
    ¾ cup pure maple syrup
    1 cup milk
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup pecans, chopped
    ½ cup whole wheat flour
    ¾ stick butter
    1 cup unrefined coconut sugar


    INSTRUCTIONS
    Wash the sweet potatoes and bake them in a 375 degree oven until tender, about 30-35 minutes. When they are finished cooking (and had a minute to cool) slice them open and scrape out the flesh into a large bowl.
    Add maple syrup, milk, eggs, vanilla, and salt. With a potato masher, mash them up just until combined - you don't want them to be too smooth.
    In a separate bowl, add chopped pecans, flour, butter and coconut sugar. With a pastry cutter or fork, mash together until completely combined and crumbly.
    Spread the sweet potato mixture into a baking dish and sprinkle the crumb mixture on top. If you are making the potatoes ahead of time, keep the topping in a ziplock bag and store both in the fridge. Then just add the topping right before baking.
    Bake uncovered in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Re: Thanksgiving Dishes??

    Tracy found an organic turkey and we are making it this way..

    Herb-Rubbed Crisp-Skinned Butterflied Roast Turkey
    DIRECTIONS
    1.
    Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 450°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan with aluminum foil. Place slotted broiler rack or wire rack on top.

    2.
    Combine garlic, chives, parsley, sage, thyme, and shallots in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse, scraping down sides as necessary, until finely chopped and no large pieces remain. Scatter butter chunks on top. Pulse until homogenous paste is formed. Season generously with salt and pepper and pulse to combine. Transfer half of butter mixture to a small saucepan and melt over low heat.

    3.
    Gently separate the skin of the turkey from the flesh using your hands, going in through the bottom of the breast and working up along both breast halves and the thighs. Using your hands, rub butter directly on the turkey meat underneath the skin all over. Massage the skin from the outside until the butter is distributed in an even layer.

    4.
    Brush exterior of the turkey with the melted butter until evenly coated. Season the turkey with salt and pepper and transfer to the wire rack.

    5.
    Transfer turkey to oven and roast, rotating occasionally, until an instant read thermometer inserted into the deepest part of the breast registers 150°F, and the thighs register at least 165°F, about 80 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes before carving. Serve immediately.
