During December 2011, I experienced 3 gallbladder attacks within a week and a half. Although I don't think my diet was THAT bad before this happened, I decided after the third one to drastically alter my eating habits. So, for at least the next couple of months (until my baby comes), my goal is to seek out and share low-fat, high fiber, and low-sugar recipes. I figured as long as I was figuring things out for myself and my family, I may as well share what's working!

Raspberry Cranberry Jello Salad

Several years ago, when I helped put on a dinner for 50+ women from church, one of the other ladies suggested serving this salad. It sounded interesting...but after I made it, OH MAN. I've dreamed about it since then. It was SO GOOD. I recently contact that friend and she re-sent the recipe--so now it's going up here so I don't lose it again. I can't wait to serve this for Thanksgiving!

1 large box raspberry jello
2 cups boiling water
1 can WHOLE cranberry sauce
1 bag frozen raspberries

Mix water and jello until all granules are dissolved. Stir in cranberry sauce, then raspberries. Refrigerate until firm.

NOTES: The first time I had this, we used blackberries instead of raspberries and it was absolutely wonderful.
