The thing about a diabetic diet that I don't think most people get is that you don't have to eat special foods or be excluded from what "everyone else" is eating (including dessert). In fact, the diet guidelines for people with diabetes are the same as those for all of us. For the most part, eating to manage diabetes means eating with your eyes open—knowing what's going into your body and when. So, truth be told, if you have diabetes, everyone else should be taking a cue from what's on your plate.

For several years my husband and I have hosted a big pre-Thanksgiving bash for our friends. Until we started throwing these parties, I had done little but set the table for Thanksgiving dinner. I had never carved a turkey before or made gravy, and my pie-making skills were a joke. Now I have it down to a science.

Here are 5 steps to help you host a stress-free Thanksgiving:

When it comes to minor ailments like headaches and motion sickness, I don’t really like to take medications. I’d rather use a kitchen-based remedy to soothe my symptoms. And I’m not the only one. A recent survey reported that worries about the economy are driving more people to alternative remedies as they look for ways to save money on expensive doctor visits and prescription medicines.

Chicken Potpie is one of my favorite comfort foods. What’s more satisfying on a cool day than hot creamy chicken inside a flaky crust? Nothing, unless you’re like me and want to watch what you eat. Suddenly this butter- and heavy-cream-laden dish doesn’t seem so comforting.

So instead of making a traditional recipe that’s loaded with fat, I use EatingWell’s healthier version of this dish to satisfy my comfort-food craving without the extra calories and fat. It’s comfort food without the guilt.

I'm a big fan of fatty fish—salmon, tuna and, for the first time this past weekend, grilled sardines! Of course these fish taste delicious, but they also deliver a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids. (Get some of my favorite salmon recipes here: Salmon Burgers with Green Goddess Sauce, below, and Cashew Salmon with Apricot Couscous)

Lasagna is one of my favorite comfort foods. Although it's not exactly the most stellar meal nutritionally, its cheesy goodness is irresistible. But with a few easy swaps, you can make your favorite lasagna recipe healthier. Lasagna actually has quite a lot going for it, health-wise—it's all in how you assemble it.
