A Gift for you and Good News

Healthy Holiday Cooking

Basket of Fall squash and soup    From Dr. Jo’s holiday table to yours!


Enjoy this Healthy Holiday Cooking booklet as a gift for you


This Healthy Holiday Cooking booklet is a compilation of the Tillman family traditional dishes that we prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Almost everything is gluten-free and sucrose (table sugar) free and there’s absolutely no high fructose corn syrup or genetically modified food in our meals.


 After putting this Healthy Holiday Cooking booklet together I realized what a big help it is to me to have many of  our recipes together in one place instead of searching through the 3-ring binders and recipe card boxes as the recipes were quite scattered about.


So we hope you enjoy our sharing our holiday meal ideas with you and that they will bless you and your family.

And now more good news…


Thanksgiving Feast Good for Your Brain


You will be delighted to know that you’re already planning to eat food that’s good for your brain in your Thanksgiving Feast.


Positscience.com led by that amazing neuroscientist Dr. Merzeniche recently posted this good news on their blog about good brain food.



Like chicken and eggs, turkey is a great source of choline – a key ingredient in the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which facilitates communication between brain cells.


Green Beans

Green beans are packed with vitamin K – which is a powerful antioxidant that has health benefits for body and brain.


Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are rich in beta carotene—a powerful antioxidant—which studies suggest is an important nutrient for cognitive function, especially in older adults. This year, skip the marshmallows and try topping them with chopped pecans or walnuts for an extra brain boost.


Brussels Sprouts

Leafy green vegetables like Brussels sprouts are true superfoods, packing in almost 400% of the recommended daily value of vitamin A in just 1 cup—which is good for your brain and your body. Try quartering them and sautéing them in olive oil for brain healthy side dish everyone will love.


Cranberry Sauce

Cranberries are an excellent source of high-quality antioxidants, which help maintain a healthy brain.


Red Wine

If you plan to have a glass of wine with your Thanksgiving dinner, make it red. Red wine contains resveratrol, a compound that has been associated with better cognitive performance.


Eating Together

Being social is important to maintaining good brain health. Just getting together with friends and family can give you a boost to your mood and your mind!”
