21 Favorite Must-try Paleo, Grain Free Thanksgiving Recipes

​I started out thinking I’d write a post to include holiday recipes for Thanksgiving all the way up through New Years, but soon realized that Thanksgiving deserves its own post.  There are just so many delicious and healthy recipes to choose from! This was a fun post for me though, because as I was going through these recipes, I rediscovered some old favorites and some new ones that I can’t WAIT to add to our Brubaker feast! Here we have a list of my favorite 21 recipes, from meat to veggies to ahhhhh desserts. I tried to include a lot of pretty simple ones because really giving thanks should not be overshadowed by the stresses of cooking elaborate dishes! I like to get my daughter involved too and make it something we can do together, and help her develop an appreciation for plentiful food, good quality, fresh and local ingredients, as well as a twist on old family traditions. I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving meal as much as we do!

Turkey and Gravy

Stuffing

  • This is my go-to. I love the combination of bacon and sausage with the fruity flavors of cranberries and apples! Thanksgiving Stuffing
  • This one includes a delicious cornbread recipe that you make ahead and use in the stuffing…yum. Paleo Stuffing (if you are highly sensitive to dairy, substitute or leave out grass-fed butter)
  • For a delicious twist on the traditional stuffing, try this Paleo Sweet Potato Cranberry Stuffing (if you are highly sensitive to dairy, substitute or leave out grass-fed butter)

Sweet Potatoes/Yams

Cranberries

If you’re like me, Thanksgiving dinner isn’t the same without cranberry sauce. I was excited to find this delicious and very easy take on the dish: Paleo Cranberry Sauce.

This blend of antioxidants is a must-try for the holidays! Paleo Cran-cherry Sauce

Other sides

Dessert

Ah yes. In my opinion no holiday meal is complete without the dessert. And the best part about paleo desserts is you don’t have to worry about that icky too-much-sugar fat and fatigue feeling you might have felt in the past. So have 2 slices of that pie – Japheth approved 🙂

Gobble Gobble!
