Clinical studies have found that casein, a protein in all dairy products, blocks the absorption of antioxidants and renders them useless to our body.

I make a bread pudding with butternut squash, mushrooms, leeks and gruyere. What's nice is you make most of it the day before, then pour the milk, eggs and cheese over it the next day and bake.

My kids have eaten vegetarian for years, so their Thanksgiving dinners have never meant traditional things like Turkey or Ham. But this is my first veggie Thanksgiving. It's what William James called "a forced option." My choice was made for me by the doctor. I'm so disappointed to be swallowing my pride rather than my turkey and gravy.

Don, wishing you health and hoping that you're able to find satisfaction in a tasty Thanksgiving meal surrounded by, and able to enjoy, the ones you love. Thank your doctor, and may you rethink tradition! Happy (first veggie) Thanksgiving!
