I am so thankful for my family, friends, and community and I love making amazing healthy food for family and friends on the holidays. The trick is to make gourmet, delicious food, that nourishes the body and soul, without adding sugar, toxins and inflammatory foods. My guests love joining us and don’t feel like they are coming over for a “healthy” meal. Here are several of my Thanksgiving recipes and a few from others that I love. I’m happy to finally be able to them put here all in one place! Each recipe is delicious, gluten free, and full of so many healing foods. The recipes here are mostly grain free, all are gluten free, and are processed sugar free. Much of this list is Paleo and GAPs friendly as well. It’s all super delicious and of course there's lot's of maple syrup. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
I love sweet potatoes all ways! This is a simple, but divine Thanksgiving sweet potato recipe. It is also amazing as leftovers. For additional crunch and flavor, add more pecans and maple syrup!
This little tart is so stinkin good. It's basically chocolate pecan pie, but the crust is only on the bottom like a tart or a cheesecake! No one can ever believe that it's full of nourishment, gluten free, dairy free, grain free, and sweetened with honey. I make this recipe year round and have replaced my Thanksgiving Pecan Pie recipe with this one. Serve with vanilla cashew ice cream. It's a dream!
We like to roast or fry our turkeys for Thanksgiving! Our prep is the same no matter which way we cook the turkey. We love a caramelized maple turkey. Even with kosher turkeys, we brine our birds overnight. The meat is always moist and flavorful!
If you plan to use a brine start the night before. HERE is a great brining recipe from Stupid Easy Paleo. Be sure to remove the neck and giblets before brining.
These delicious little date balls are packed with nourishment, but also great for an energy boost and as paleo vegan dessert. My family loves these in the fall and we keep them in the fridge for several days as a healthy go-to treat. Try rolling them in cocoa, coconut, or cacao nibs!
Whole30, Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Grain Free
