Paleo and Whole30 Thanksgiving Recipes
Although Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, I don’t have a hard and fast menu for what I think makes the perfect celebration. I mean, there was the year we ate Elvis sandwiches, and the year we just got take-out from a local restaurant, and the year we marked the occasion by having my thyroid removed. This year, we’re heading to Montreal for a quiet TGiving dinner with friends, followed by a feast at Joe Beef the next day.
Here are some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes, pulled from my cookbooks and blog archives.
They’re all paleo-friendly, and I’ve indicated which ones are Whole30 approved. I hope they help make your holiday a little tastier! You might also want to re-visit my list of 10 Paleo Pumpkin Recipes.
Astute readers will notice that I didn’t cover turkey in this list. The sides are really my strong suit, so if you want ideas for roasting a gobbler, you might try these recipes for turkey and gravy from Nom Nom Paleo.
