Paleo Thanksgiving Recipes

Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday! I just can’t get enough of it. It may help that my birthday falls on turkey day about every 4-5 years . I love waking up to watch the parade, smelling the turkey cooking in the oven (one that someone else has gotten up super early to get going, wink wink), and eating way too much pie. Paleo pie that is.

This year I’m going to make the effort to have more Paleo-approved dishes for me to enjoy. Last year, I made a sweet potato casserole that was delicious and Paleo. Turns out I didn’t even miss the marshmallows. Enjoy my roundup of 30 Paleo Thanksgiving must-try recipes.
