Happy Thanksgiving, Canadian readers! May your meals this weekend be immensely satisfying. Here is this week’s list of Thanksgiving-related blog posts and other links from my favourite corners of the web.

Are Potatoes Good for You? Thanksgiving is one of those meals when I don’t worry about the nutritional content of my dinner in any way. I think it can be healthy to eat food based solely on how much pleasure it gives you every once in a while.

My Thanksgiving dinner is going to be completely dairy-free as usual, and I’m going to try to keep soy out of the equation as well this year. I can only imagine how complicated meal planning would be for groups of people who have multiple allergies or food intolerances.
