A Primal Potential Thanksgiving

by | Nov 20, 2016 | Blog

Holidays don’t have to mean overindulging and feeling stuffed-to-discomfort. They also don’t have to mean missing out on delicious food!

I want you to enjoy every single bite but still feel really great after the meals are over!

While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying time-tested family recipes, there’s also nothing wrong with finding healthier alternatives that make you feel better physically!

I want you to create that sweet spot where you love the food AND feel great about it! 

No matter what you choose to eat, fat loss friendly or not, remember that food isn’t all that enjoyable when you eat too much of it! Stay within the lines of what is going to help you feel your very best!

With all that in mind, I’ve put together a Primal Potential recipe roundup of a few fat loss friendly paleo and primal Thanksgiving recipes! There’s no reason to not love and enjoy every bite of food you eat this Thanksgiving!

Roasted Garlic Parsnip Cauliflower Mash – I’m making this one for sure!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Bacon (I might throw in some cranberries!)

Turkey & Cranberry Meatballs (can you imagine how amazing these would be with spaghetti squash?!)

Cornish Game Hens with Egg & Sausage Stuffing (um, yes please!)

Breadless Mushroom & Cauliflower Stuffing

Coconut Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Green Bean Casserole

Stuffed Double Pork & Sage Baked Apples (yesssss!)

What are you eating for Thanksgiving? Cranberry bread is a big staple in my family but honestly, it’s not worth it to me anymore. I feel better, physically & emotionally, when I stick to meat & veggies. If I stumble upon homemade red velvet cake, I’ll absolutely have a few bites, but I won’t go past the point of feeling good about it both while I eat and after.

Enjoy the day and enjoy your food!
