I went to the grocery store this morning and asked whether they had any fresh turkey left. They did, but it was in the back, already taken off the racks. They sold me the turkey at 65% off! For those of you on a pretty hard budget (like me), go... (more)
I follow the 80/20 principle, yesterday was entirely in the 20% column. And to save money for the next couple days, I'll be eating non-paleo Thanksgiving leftovers. :)
Contained here is a truism I want to share with tonight before you give thanks with your tribe......... A goal that can be achieved in a single step is probably not very meaningful ??? or ambitious. There is no magic bullets in anything in life.... (more)
Or whichever recipe you find to be delightful. Looking for something that is easy to have sit in a car for about three hours, as we're traveling out of town to meet family. Thanks!

There seems to be so many new Paleo blogs and Paleo cookbooks in the past year, I was wondering if anyone has found any really outstanding dishes that are so good they plan to incorporate them into this year's Thanksgiving feast. Please provide a... (more)
I come from a big Italian family - up until recently, I was the biggest. They've been riding me pretty steadily about going Paleo, but they can't argue with the results. With Thanksgiving around the corner, I'm trying to find little ways to tip... (more)
Paleo Newb and Turkey Day is coming up. I need to serve the traditional dishes, but paleo and vegan. Can u imagine what a disaster this could b e.? Looking for a mac and cheese recipe with cashew cheese and some kind of brocolli macaroni. Can you... (more)
I pretty much planned to screw my diet Thanksgiving...I didnt get to go home to my family, and I live in Alabama(who wants deep fried cheese and bread?!)...so I had very little say in what was cooked. I decided that its Thanksgiving, and I am... (more)
Time heals all wounds. If you have the day off today just relax. I tend to drink tons of water if I have a big cheat meal. I don't know why my body is so thirsty afterwards, but I feel better when drinking lots of water.
To quote Geore Costanza:How was the collision of Two Worlds? : A "brave" Paleo person confronted with the stark reality that their obese, diabetic, autoimmuned ,cardiovascularly damaged friends and relatives have no idea WTF ishappening to... (more)
Yummy, fresh, rutabagas are one of my favorite veggies, though I limit them carefully as they are a medium starch veggie. We got some wonderful fresh ones, peeled and large-cubed them, and then put bacon in with them in a sort of semi-boil/steam... (more)
I'm so excited about whipping up some delicious paleo dishes this Thanksgiving! What paleo dish are you most looking forward to sharing with your non paleo friends or family this year? I can't believe how delicious this sounds - Greek Chestnut... (more)
We've been invited to another's house for this Thxgiving & the host is aware of my being GF, but that I can eat pretty much anything else. I don't want to be "that person" (anymore) where special things need to be cooked/prep'd/made... so I... (more)
I'm not GF, so I'd eat traditional sides if they were home-cooked, but my family member is going the instant potatoes, canned yams, and Stove Top route. So I'm bringing carrots & broccoli to steam right before dinner.
To take a little of the emotional pressure off my mind going into my first ancestral Thanksgiving, I bought a "minimally processed" turkey. I can't afford a free-range bird, but I found one that had never been frozen and had not been injected with... (more)
I'm not quite sure what I'm doing for the holiday, if I'm with my usual group of friends or what, but if I am with friends then it's my usual duties of salad, the potato, the dessert, but I always break those rules and end of making a few extra... (more)
Okay, so I am having 4 for thanksgiving dinner, and I need to go low carb because 1. I am a diabetic, and 2. I want to enjoy myself. I need recipes. Not for the main course, for that, I am going to prepare a beef tenderloin, wrapped in BACON. I... (more)
Here are some of my faves for Thanksgiving~ ~I like to cook down whole cranberries until they are nice and saucy, add lemon juice, cinnamon, stevia and a little nutmeg to taste. Sorry, no exact measurements, I don't cook that way! ~For gravy I... (more)
Ok, tomorrow, is thanksgiving in America, and I am the only one who's paleo in my whole family. Last year, and most years before, the options are mainly starches, legumes, and meats with stuff injected into it. There's celery, but the lady puts... (more)
My family always stuffs the turkey with potato and sausage (seasoned with garlic, onion, pultry seasoning and whatever else). It's so popular with my family that we make a separate bowl of just the stuffing. Really delicious!
Okay, boys and girls, Thanksgiving is coming up in six short weeks, and I need a great menu. My man ain't Paleo, not by a long shot, and I don't want to get stuck making bready dressing/stuffing or pie crust as I usually do. Let's post some... (more)
