Thanksgiving is almost here!
Personally I consider Halloween to be the start of the holiday season and also the start of the struggle to stay on track. I successfully navigated Halloween without eating any candy based on the idea that literally ALL of the Halloween candy I enjoy can be bought any time of the year at my local store.
The rest of the holidays get a little trickier. Christmas baked goods? That isn’t something I can just buy at a grocery store, and I certainly can’t buy the memories and nostalgia that go along with Christmas baking. I’ll let you all know how I cope with that when I figure it out!
I don’t think Thanksgiving will be that hard for me. The hardest part will be avoiding the pie! I can eat turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and the veggies. I’ll have to avoid the corn bread stuffing this year, but I think I’ll survive. I’m going to try a Paleo version of stuffing and some pumpkin bars so I don’t feel weird not partaking in dessert.
There are a million Paleo Thanksgiving recipes out there, but here’s what I’m going to try.
I’ll try and remember to take some pictures and post an update on how things turned out.
I hope you have a fabulous Thanksgiving full of people you love, good food, relaxation, and football!
