What are your primal plans for Thanksgiving dinner?
Some of the things I make are primal already:
Turkey (which I brine and then inject with lemon butter OMG)
Spinach Salad w/onion dressing, bacon, hard boiled eggs
Veggies and a cheese ball
And I also make green bean casserole, but I think I might make a green bean salad instead - maybe something with almonds and feta cheese?
Then there's potatoes... usually I made mashed potatoes because people love them, but I don't eat very much because the other food is too good. haha. I might still make mashed potatoes (I use LOTS of butter/cream/cheese, sometimes stock).
Or I might make mashed sweet potatoes. Both are a 20% thing, but sweet potatoes have more nutrients, right? (No sugar, I'd just add butter.)
The least-primal thing I make for Thanksgiving is my stuffing... it's AMAZING, with sun-dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts and things like that. I think I may still make it though, because it's made with sourdough bread.
Since sourdough bread is made w/a long fermenting process, wouldn't that make it much easier to digest than other breads?
I've been experimenting with pumpkin-pie-like fillings, and will probably make a primal pumpkin pie (almond flour crust) with homemade whipped cream (no sugar added) for dessert.
