The Three Course Paleo Thanksgiving

Standard

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 Sausage and Fruit Stuffing

Standard

Happy Thanksgiving!

We all love stuffing, but being that the traditional recipes are filled with wheat flour and vegetable oils, stuffing doesn’t love us!

Luckily it’s not that hard to make a Paleo Stuffing and ensure you have a complete Thanksgiving meal this festive season, without sacrificing your health.

This Paleo Stuffing recipe pairs Paleo Rosemary Bread with Italian sausage and fresh fruit to achieve a taste sensation that adds flavor to any roast.

INGREDIENTS

1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 pound Italian Sausage
2 whole apples or pears, cored and sliced
1/4 cup honey/raw agave nectar

+ 4 slices of Paleo Rosemary Bread

RECIPE

Using your hands, form the Italian sausage into small balls.
In a medium saute pan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.
Add the sausage and cook for about 4 minutes, turning the sausage to ensure all sides gain even heat.

Paleo Stuffing Sausage Preparation
After 4 minutes, add the apple/pear slices to the pan and continue to cook for another few minutes.

Paleo Stuffing Meat and Fruit Preparation
While the meat and fruit combination cooks, break the slices of pre-made Paleo Rosemary Bread into pieces about the size of a dime.
Place the bread, meat and fruit in a mixing bowl. Add the honey/agave and stir.
The stuffing is now ready to either place inside a turkey or chicken before beginning a roast, or simply place in an oven-safe dish and bake it alone for 20 to 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Enjoy this Paleo Stuffing with your festive meal and rejoice in knowing that not only is this recipe free of wheat and vegetable oils, it incorporates fruit, which helps your body to digest the amount of meat typically consumed during holiday meals.

Have a wonderful day filled with good food and gratitude,

Paleo Pumpkin Pie Loaf

Standard

Fall just wouldn’t be complete without pumpkin loaf to serve alongside hot apple cider.

This homemade Paleo Pumpkin Pie Loaf recipe is both gluten-free and dairy-free, while packing in nutrients such as protein, natural fats and dietary fiber. Best of all, your family and friends would probably never guess that it’s Paleo!

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 cup coconut palm sugar
1/8 cup pumpkin pie spice*
1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
1/8 cup honey/raw agave nectar
3 large eggs
1/4 cup walnuts, for topping
Coconut oil, for greasing

Note: This recipe makes a mini loaf; double the ingredients to make a regular size loaf of Pumpkin Pie Bread.

RECIPE

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease a mini loaf bread baking dish with coconut oil.
Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse for about 1 minute until just blended.
Scoop the pumpkin pie loaf mix into the greased mini loaf dish and sprinkle with walnuts, pressing them down slightly into the dough.
Paleo Pumpkin Pie Loaf Process
Place the loaf into the oven to bake for about 35 minutes or until a skewer poked through the center comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 20 minutes, before slicing and enjoying plain or with grass-fed butter, or place in a dry place inside an airtight container and enjoy within four days.

*Pumpkin Pie Spice can be purchased at a number of grocery stores, but can also be made from scratch by mixing equal parts cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice. For this recipe (1/8 cup pumpkin pie spice) you would need 1/2 a tablespoon of each of those spices.

Note: Because this recipe includes real pumpkin puree and not mere pumpkin flavoring, the loaf is moist and decadent and will not rise like a typical loaf would.

We will be demonstrating this recipe at the Gluten-Free Health Fair at the Littleton Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage later today, Saturday, October 18th, 2014. We’ll be sure to post more pics soon!

Happy Fall and Happy Baking!
