With Thanksgiving just two days away, you’d think that most people have their meals planned out. However, if the phone calls I’ve received from family and friends are any indication, this is not the case.

One of the things I am most frequently asked for are delicious yet healthy desserts that will please even the most finicky of palates. So, to make good on these requests, here are two easy yet delicious treats that will not only help you balance your estrogen levels, but will have your guests begging for more.

Both of these recipes are adapted from Eat Papayas Naked, by Dr. Lark.
