Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Every day I find lots of things in my life to be thankful for, but a whole day centered around gratitude...that's awesome! Plus, we get to have a yummy dinner with all of our family.
What would Thanksgiving be without mashed potatoes and gravy? Well, it would be a paleo Thanksgiving! Although there are now some people in the paleo community that say white potatoes are fine to eat, they still pack a lot of carbs into that skin. Carbs that could be better spent elsewhere, like dessert!!
When I was first introduced to the paleo lifestyle, it quickly became obvious how important bone broth was. Everyone talked about it and touted it's magical powers! As a recovering vegetarian I wasn't so sure about it. The thought of simmering animal bones kind of freaked me out.
I am all about batch cooking. I do not have time to cook every day, nor do I care to! Twice a week I cook up a bunch of veggies that will last me for days. I'll use them for my breakfast and dinner all week long. (Lunch is always raw veggies.)
I have to say, I do love my coffee. For years I drank it light and sweet. Heaven forbid! Now there are days where I drink it black or with a touch of stevia. I guess I'm starting to appreciate the taste of coffee as I age!
If you are someone who loves the texture of rice but want to forgo the carbs, this is the dish for you! It's simple but packs tons of flavor!
Some people look at me like I'm crazy when I tell them to make their own mayo. It is so simple and easy and will save you a ton of money from the healthy, store-bought versions. Just give it a try and see for yourself!!
