Stuffed Celery - Thanksgiving Side Dish THM Style

Good day everyone! As Thanksgiving approaches I started to get nervous! This year is the first time I will try to create an entire "Thanksgiving Menu" following all THM principles! (Of course I'll still have to make an exception for auntie Sally's sugar cookies and also her cranberry/orange relish for hubby or he'd never forgive me!)  But I am excited to see that following the THM plan it's not hard at all to still put together and enjoy an amazing feast!

First of all... Turkey... Approved! Right? Butter it, baste it, stuff it with herbs, season it right, cook it to perfection (Turkey Roasting Times chart) and you already have your Thanksgiving food foundation, right? I can also enjoy a delicious and oh! So buttery cauliflower mash! yes... I can make gravy too! and I'm already working on my "dessert spread" recipe which will for sure include: Chocolate Cake with Whipped Cream(S) and Pumpkin Muffins (S), then I started thinking of the other "sides" I usually serve and I was happy to realize I can make my amazing salads that will include delicious, satisfying, crunchy, healthy nuts and almonds, deviled eggs which are definitely a tradition in hubby's family and one of my favorites! STUFFED CELERY! ... I've already shared this recipe before, I am just making a minor tweak (substituting Worcestershire sauce for Bragg liquid aminos) and voila! You'll have a deceivingly delicious appetizer that is perfect for Thanksgiving (plus it always looks beautiful and it's fun to make)

So... here it is... back on my blog... for all my fellow Trim Healthy Mama's to enjoy!

Stuffed Celery (THM S)


1 Bunch of celery (about 4-5 long stalks), trimmed, peeled (always peel your celery to remove the overly-fibrous parts) and cut into 3-4 " long pieces.
8 oz. cream cheese
4 oz. drained red pimientos (from a jar) - chopped
garlic powder to taste
1 tsp. horseradish (horseradish does have sugar, etc. but it's minimal and you're only going to use 1 tsp. for the whole recipe)
1-2 tsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos (this stuff is amazing! And sooo good for you!)
1/3 cup of mayo
salt and pepper to taste (optional)


Blend all the ingredients together (except for the celery, of course) season with salt and pepper to taste if desired, stuff your celery, plate and Enjoy!

Super easy, isn't it? I hope you and your family will enjoy it as much as my guests and I do... please let me know! I appreciate all your comments!
