So, as you may have already concluded from my three day posting frenzy, I ♥ Thanksgiving. Who doesn’t? I mean, it’s a holiday about food.
Er, I mean giving thanks. For food. And farmers. And family.
This year is trickier than most, though, and it’s not just because my sister lured our mom to Colorado. Being a GAPS family around the holidays requires some creativity, but it’s totally doable! Just ask my family, who scarfed down two pumpkin pies, two batches of stuffing with cranberry sauce, fauxtatoes and half a pan of honey-glazed “sweet potatoes” so we’d have all the recipe kinks sorted out before the big day.
Looking for more GAPS-friendly ideas?
Roasted brussel sprouts with bacon and apples? Yum! Just substitute apple cider vinegar for red wine vinegar and you’re good to go! (Thanks Jenni for sharing!)
Ann Marie at Cheeseslave has a stuffing that uses sausage with savoury spices here.
And oh, there’s my friends Whittney’s broccoli grape slaw. So delicious!
Want even more? Tarena and Brenda at The Well-Fed Homestead have created A Whole Food Holiday – a collection of 48 recipes like pumpkin cheesecake bars, dutch apple pie and coconut pound cake. All GAPS-friendly, of course. Check it out!
