My Perfect Paleo Thanksgiving Menu
I believe I finally have my Thanksgiving Day down to a science. I know what my family likes and I stick to their favorites, and basics, for the most part. And because I know it's going to be a crazy day I start the day off with my meditation ritual and being thankful for all that I have is my mantra all day.
Sure, there are moments when I don't think I can pull it off and I fear one, or two, side dishes are going to be cold when I serve them, but for the most part, when I sit down to enjoy that Thanksgiving meal with my family, gratitude washes over me and I am happy to have put in the hard work and made my family smile.
So whatever your Thanksgiving ritual is I hope you have a wonderful day and always remember that nutritious food can be delicious food!
Here's what's on my menu this year...
Roast Turkey with Leeks and Apple
The key to this amazingly juicy roast turkey is stuffing it with leeks, carrots, green apple, and celery.
Watching your carbs or have you gone keto? Mashed cauliflower is the perfect swap for high-carb mashed potatoes!
Thanksgiving Paleo Gravy
My go-to gravy is Paleo-friendly and of course contains my favorite food, bone broth! >>> Get the recipe here <<<
Yes, if you're Paleo or grain-free you can still enjoy stuffing! Check out my recipe for grain-free bread ideas.
Roasted Winter Squash
Thanksgiving isn't Thanksgiving unless the smell of cinnamon and nutmeg is in the air and roasted winter squash is the perfect nutrition powerhouse for these spices.
Cranberry Apple Sauce
Antioxidant-rich cranberries are a must-have for me at Thanksgiving and trust me when I say... this recipe is the best!
Paleo Pumpkin Pie
Today is not the day we want to skip dessert, but we can make this Thanksgiving favorite a little healthier.
