This Thanksgiving I surprised myself by not indulging in too many carbs. I did have a slice of sweet potato pie and a serving of arroz con gandule (click here for recipe) but both were small portions and didn’t leave me feeling overstuffed. For the rest of meals I continued to use cauliflower rice as my go-to side dish.
