The Three Course Paleo Thanksgiving

2015-08-28 20.28.00

It’s that time of the year again…the holidays are here! Which means that it’s time to get your chef hat on and do your best when it comes to maintaining your Paleo lifestyle. Though it can seem overwhelming when it comes to preparing for your holiday feasts it doesn’t have to be.

To keep things simple for you we’ve compiled a three course Paleo Thanksgiving feast. These recipes will make your Thanksgiving preparations quick, simple and Paleo. We may have also added some additional “optional” recipes…just incase three courses won’t cut it!

The Three Course Paleo Thanksgiving:

  1. Paleo Sausage and Fruit Stuffing– Lets be honest, you can’t do Thanksgiving without stuffing.
  2. Lemon Butter Chicken Roast– This recipe can easily be adjusted for turkey, simple update the cooking temp, time and seasoning portions based on the size of your turkey.
  3. Egg-Free, Paleo Pumpkin Pie– The perfect end to a delicious feast!

Of course, sometimes three items simply isn’t enough for a feast. Here are a few other optional recipes to bolster your Thanksgiving meal…

We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday season! As always, we’d love to hear from you, reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter.

Happy Holidays,

Paleo Cookie Book Cover

It’s time for back to school and you might be wondering what to pack for lunch, or maybe what to pack your kids for lunch! Not to worry, we’re here to help.

Here’s 5 ideas for box lunches that everyone can enjoy! Not to mention that they’re easy to make and travel well.

Our 5 Box Lunch Ideas:

  1. Mediterranean Gnocchi – The best part about this dish is that it reheats well and can be easily packed into a container, making a complete meal that will fill you up. Try switching up sauces and adding protein for an endless variety of lunch options that everyone will enjoy.
  2. Paleo Smoked Salmon & Bacon Salad– This salad is hearty and delicious. The best part though…it doesn’t have to be re-heated! For a protein and veggie packed lunch, this is your go-to! Again it can easily be packed in a container for on-the-go convenience.
  3. Simple Tuna Wrap– These wraps are delicious and have all the makings for a full rounded meal. Mix your tuna up before hand and bring your wraps on the side, you’ll be all ready to go when it’s meal time.
  4. Paleo Lamb Gyro– While we recommend re-heating this you could absolutely eat it cold as well, we promise it’s just as delicious. Paleo Lamb Gyros are the way to go if you’re looking for a hearty and filling wrap to get you through the day. An added benefit…no utensils needed.
  5. Quick & Fantastic Paleo Cookies– Nothing compliments the perfect lunch like a yummy, delicious cookie. Download a copy of our Quick & Fantastic Paleo Cookies cookbook to find the perfect cookie for you!

An Update From Melissa: Publishing Fiction & Traveling The World


Camilla and I always love hearing from our readers. The messages that they send us, help us make a personal connection that we may never have had the chance to make otherwise. While these messages are often Paleo related they also include stories from the lives of our readers.

We love learning about our readers so much that we decided it would be a great idea to share a little about what’s going on with us…outside of crafting Paleo recipes for you!

So here’s whats new with me…

Publishing Fiction

It’s been a dream of mine for a while to publish a fiction novel. Well…I finally managed to put my head down, work hard and get the job done.

My debut romance novel, The Marked One is currently available for pre-order on Amazon! I’m hard at work on the second book in the series and I’m looking forward to publishing more books before the end of the year.

EBOOKIf you like romance novels or know someone who does, I’d love for you to take a look at or share The Marked One with a fellow reader.

I’m even running a GIVEAWAY right now for a FREE Amazon Fire Tablet and 5 signed, copies of The Marked One. If you’re interested, click here to learn how to enter for your chance to win!


Traveling The World

From September 2015 – April 2016, my husband and I had the chance to go on one giant adventure! We sold our house, I quite my day-job and my husband graduate from school…then we were off.

We spent 8 months traveling around the world, we planned a little but most of our adventure was based off of last minute decisions. We ended up spending 4 months in Europe, 2 months in Asia, 1 month in New Zealand and tagged on South America and the Caribbean.

We hiked to the Base Camp of Everest, visited the Great Wall of China, hiked the Inca trail, rock climbed a waterfall and much more. It was amazing. We learned a lot. But most importantly we had a blast.

Here’s a quick look at some of our adventures, but if you want to see more you can check out or daily blog @

Paleo Cleanse Reset

2. PALEO Cleanse Cover Image

Can you believe we’re almost a third of the way through 2016? I can’t. If you’re like me then the time has surely flown by and maybe a few of your goals have found their way off track. Now is a good time to take a second look at your goals and find your way back to the path that will help you accomplish them.

One of the first goals that tend to go off track for people is their diet and health focused goals. This is because these goals require daily commitment and a day or two off can easily derail months of hard work.

If this is the case for you, don’t worry. The Paleo Cleanse was set up to help in these instances, it is a 30 day commitment that was created to help you get back on track with eating and living well. Committing to the cleanse for these 30 days will help you break any bad habits you’ve created or fallen back to since the beginning of the year.

If you’re ready to get back on track or need help keeping on progress with your goals, commit to the 30 day, Paleo Cleanse. As always we’re here to help you on your journey.

Purchase your copy today! 

Happy Reading!

Let’s Talk About Health

The Modern Eater

Health is a hot topic, and we LOVE that!

No matter what your health views are, we truly believe that the world is a better place when health is a focus. The more awareness there is on the importance of health, the more likely the health industry, our society and our own personal health is to improve.

“Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.” – Stephen Covey

And that’s why we are excited to join Greg Hollenback on his Radio TalkShow, The Modern Eater, this Saturday, December 5th at 6pm MST to talk about Health, Holiday Eating and of course our pet project, PALEO Cleanse.

Want to join us?

Tune in to iHeart Radio and 630 KHOW, Denver’s Talk Station at 6pm tomorrow and listen live.

Can’t make it?

We’ll miss you, but not to worry – you can listen to the full recording after the show by visiting The Modern Eater’s SoundCloud page.

Have an awesome and healthy weekend!

Camilla and Melissa
