Everything I learned about eating right, I learned from my parents. In fact, I think my mom and dad were the original “health nuts.” When I was growing up, my mom cooked low-fat, nutritious meals, and our family dinner table looked like a rainbow—filled with plates of red, orange, green and yellow fruits and veggies. Except for my mom’s favorite lace tablecloth, there was very little white on the table, unless it was white-meat chicken or turkey.

With Thanksgiving—the biggest meal day of the year—just days away, the cliché “You are what you eat” certainly carries a lot of weight. One of my favorite ways to make Turkey Day festive, healthy and skin-friendly is to take a cue from my mom and prepare a rainbow of recipes featuring richly colored organic fruits and vegetables.
