I am so excited about cooking for the holidays. We have gathered some recipes over the year that have me feeling better equipped to make this holiday special with some really nourishing foods.
So the menu below takes a standard American traditional thanksgiving dish and gives it a whole food, traditional (full fats, no processed food) or grain free twist.
… Velveta, ritz crackers and who knows what else. I never was a fan and do not recommend for numerous health reasons but these next two make a great substitute.
It does contain quinoa which some of us find rather hard to digest. So I probably will not include it this year. But it IS delicious and worth a try.

Last year we browned some pasture raised pork and a pinch of fennel. We also used cheddar and parmasan instead of fontina and Oh, My! Yes, it is that good. If you want you can throw on some brocolli. But really- just steam the veggie and serve it on the side. It’s Thanksgiving- live it up. 🙂
Standard- boiled potatoes, milk, butter (or gag- margarine), salt and pepper in whatever proprotions tastes good.
Amazingly delicious: Pioneer Woman Cooks, watch-out, you better be participating in a rodeo afterward ’cause this is one loaded bit of goodness. If you’re looking to make potatoes your star splurge, this is the dish. I switch out the seasoning salt for some Himalayan pink salt but everything else is golden.

…a picture is worth a thousands. Bacon, grain free, rich, creamy…need we say more? Try it.
ENJOY! Lia D.
