Foodie Friday 11.20.15 – Yummy, Clean, and often Paleo Thanksgiving Sides

Happy Friday! I’m doing things a little different this week. Instead of my top three meals that we made this week, I’m going to share with you the top three meals I’ve been eyeballing for the ol’ Turkey Feast for Thanksgiving next week. Alrighty? Okay. Good. Glad you’re on board. 😉

A few years back (alright, maybe more than a few), I discovered the theory that just because it is a special occasion…just because you want your food to taste delicious…just because you want some pie…you don’t have to eat a whole bunch of crap! We live in the age of so many non-conventional ideas on how to fuel your body healthfully AND full of amazing flavor. Don’t let the holidays be an excuse! Be smart. Make some changes to your standbys, try something new and delve into the world of yummy and nutrient dense food! Celebrate with your friends and family. Share with those who have less. Enjoy. Treat yourself right. Your body will thank you.

Down to business!

✨STUFFING!✨

We are gluten free around here, but also don’t really use much GF bread to substitute, so I’m super excited about this grain-free cornbread stuffing recipe (uhm…with bacon! Hey…if you source it right, it is totally a superfood!).

✨Veggies!✨

LOVE Brussels sprouts and beets. So good. Such rich colors and flavors. I will definitely be adding some Brussels to this deliciousness! And we will use either grass-fed butter or avocado oil. Mmmmmmm…

✨Pie!✨

And of course, there was no getting around it…everyone needs a little more pumpkin pie in their lives…but only if it is goooood. Can’t wait to try this! My mouth is already watering. I’ll be using an ol’ fashion real pumpkin to make my puree, but other than that…here are the recipes I’ll be following:

Man, I love Thanksgiving. It is going to be a little weird just being my little (sorta big) family of us five, but we’re gonna go with it. The sun is supposed to be shining and the temps are supposed to be cccccccooooolllld. It is going to be amazing.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
