Paleo Thanksgiving Inspiration

Monday November 19, 2012

No menu plan this week, Thanksgiving and my daughter’s 9th birthday are coming, so my culinary efforts are focused on those two events.

Thankfully, I am not *in charge* of Thanksgiving, but will be providing some Paleo-rific sides to the Thanksgiving feast.   If you are looking for side dishes to round out your Thanksgiving table, maybe one of these recipes will strike a cord with you.

Skip the cheese if you are strict.  Otherwise live a little and discover how delicious cauliflower can be.

I’ve never thought of mushrooms as a thanksgiving dish, but holy heck, these are divine.

Very similar to one of my favorite holiday dishes growing up, minus the sugar.   Easy to make ahead, just make sure you have a batch of Paleo Mayo on hand.

Deviled eggs are delicious whether you make them in the classic style or if you fancy them up with things like bacon and avocado.  They are also a good make-ahead meal.
