A Paleo Thanksgiving Menu

We are less than 10 days away from Thanksgiving, and I am so excited to be sharing this epic "Friendsgiving" holiday menu with you guys!

It's a roundup of delicious, feastworthy recipes from myself & some of my favorite blogger friends;  full of dishes that will have you (and your family) coming back for seconds & thirds!

From apps to the main event to all the sides (which are a whole event on their own in my book), and even desserts- we've got you covered for an all-out, Paleo-friendly feast.  

Dairy Free Cheese Ball | PALEO, Whole30, Keto

This dairy free cheese ball is made with cashews for a Paleo, Whole30 compliant, and Keto-friendly appetizer that everyone will love.  Looking for a vegan recipe?  I've got you covered there too-  just one easy swap and this is animal product free.

One of my favorite things on this planet is food.  Well, duh- you guys know that by now.

But truly- I love to talk about it, learn about it, gather around it, make it healthy & delicious, and of course eat it.

Pumpkin Pie Coffee Cake | PALEO

Cooler weather and the holiday season always puts me in the mood for more desserts than usual.  And when they're "healthier" desserts that don't make me feel sick afterward- why not!?  

It's the "most wonderful time of the year" after all!

Coffee cake always fits the bill and is a major win because:
a) it's dessert
b) it's totally socially acceptable to eat it for breakfast!

Eggplant Pizza Bites | Grain Free, Low Carb

Every time I do an Instagram Q&A, one question always seems to come up:  
what's your favorite comfort food or "cheat meal"?

And honestly, I'd love to know yours!  Because those are the meals I'm always trying to somehow clean up in a way that doesn't make you feel yucky the next day, but still tastes just as good-  because food should be enjoyed, am I right?!

So as far as my favorites go... I'd have to say Mexican food, sushi, or pizza.  Pretty basic, right?  But not always the easiest things to make healthy versions of.

Instant Pot Butternut Squash Soup | PALEO, Whole30

It's soup season, friends!  Even if the temperature hit 83 today in sunny California, you can bet I'm still making & freezing all the soups to enjoy now that fall is here and baby is on his way!

I love how easy soups are, and how versatile!  I almost always eat them differently when I serve them up as leftovers- especially with this Butternut Squash version!

Whether it's crumbled bacon, chopped chicken apple sausage, or a handful of toasted almonds & green onions, garnishing soups is my favorite way to switch things up and reinvent my leftover meals.
