            Paleo-Style Stuffing

My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the stuffing.I am not sure if its the bready taste or the semi-crunchy celery and onions, but it is the one thing I am hopelessly weak in avoiding.

Fortunately, the folks at Paleo Comfort Foods have come up with a yummy way to still enjoy stuffing with no of the regret!

Health Cranberry Sauce

  It’s always been pretty traditional around my family to use the good-old canned variety of cranberry sauce. Aside from the dangerous plastics lining the can, the cranberries can have added sugars a less-than-fresh origin.

The folks over at The Paleo Diet Lifestyle have a ton of yummy recipes over at their site.

So, it is possible with proper planning and homework to stay with your Paleo eating program. Yeah, there will be temptation, and you may even give in a little. But if the majority of your meal is done “right” the little cheats may not hurt you that much! Its all about being intentional about what you are going to do before the opportunities to fall off present themselves!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
