These scrumptious cookies have just the right amount of sugar and spice to make them the perfect festive holiday treat. Not only are these little gems safe for those who cannot stomach gluten, but the traditional holiday spice cinnamon has been shown to help to keep blood glucose levels in check.

Looking for an alternative to cooking a whole turkey, try stuffing a turkey breast roast with local seasonal apples and nutrition rich kale.

Kale promotes regular digestion, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating, and the pectin in apples lowers LDL ("bad") cholesterol. So enjoy this healthy alternative with your family and friends this Thanksgiving weekend.
