During this time of year I make gravy on a weekly basis. When the cold, damp weather sets in, rich, warm, gravy makes for a delicious comfort food smothered over roasted chicken or turkey.

  1. Increasing the amount of vegetables that you consume will help you eat healthier while losing weight at the
    same time. I like to cook in general, plus I like my own taste
    and flavor. Fresh fruit, low fat cheese, a handful of almonds, all go a long way to satisfy hunger.

  2. I was wondering about using guar gum instead of the kudzu do you know how much I should use or if it works? I cant wait to try this recipe and don’t want my non-gf family to be disapointed either. Thanks!!
