Paleo Chicken Gravy by

This Paleo gravy will work well with your Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing. Yum.



Green Bean Casserole by

It’s time we all ditched the canned beans, canned cream of mushroom soup, and fried/processed onions when making our beloved Green Bean Casserole. Make it homemade, without any processed ingredients, and I promise your body with be just as happy as your taste buds will be. 



Sweet Potatoes by (me!)

Growing up, my favorite part about Thanksgiving dinner was the “candied yams” (sweet potatoes)! As I became more health conscious, I really wanted to find a healthier version of my favorite dish. I ended up creating Sweet Potatoes with Maple Syrup – which tastes SO delicious and heavenly – that you won’t even miss the old stuff with the sugary marshmallow goo. For me, this recipe was a huge success, and I really hope that you try it out and enjoy it as much as I do! :)



Cranberry Sauce by

I have a confession. I am not that big of a fan of cranberries, but I eat ’em anyways. Why? Because cranberries are super healthy! Ditch the canned cranberries since they are full of sugar and kinda cancel out all of the health benefits and make your own cranberry sauce! No processed sugar required.
