Thanksgiving doesn't have to leave you feeling overly full or like you've begun a downward slide on your health and nutrition for the holidays. This paleo thanksgiving menu will leave you feeling full, satisfied, and proud of yourself for making healthy choices!
So often, Thanksgiving is the beginning of our "holiday slide." We make concessions for ourselves at Thanksgiving, only to find that the food and menu choices we've made have left us feeling bloated, full, and reminding us that we should have chosen differently.
The first time we made a truly full paleo Thanksgiving meal was a few years ago, and I'll never forget how good I felt. I was able to eat some of everything. There were tons of delicious flavors, and I didn't miss anything that wasn't there.
We had appetizers, an amazing smoked turkey, plenty of sides, and a delicious paleo pumpkin pie. There was no dairy, no gluten, no grains, no beans, no refined sugar. Everything was flavorful, satisfying, and we didn't feel sick to our stomachs after eating.
By choosing to have a paleo Thanksgiving menu, we chose to make a healthier start to the holidays, and you can too. After a paleo Thanksgiving menu like this one, you can continue to make healthier choices throughout the holidays, and be proud of yourself for not falling into the holiday party food trap!
