    Thanksgiving! What's your plan?

    So Thanksgiving is almost here....

    Having a wheat/gluten intolerance and also dairy allergies I don't want to risk it with some of the traditional holiday fare such as dressing/stuffing, cornbread or yeast rolls, pies, cakes. It almost makes it easier for me at get togethers to not be tempted to eat these things because I know how bad they make me feel.

    I'm planning to make some "paleo" versions to bring such as:
    "cornbread' muffins
    sweet potato casserole (cupcakesomg.blogspot.com)
    coconut crack bars (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

    With a plate of turkey and some veggies, I should be set

    What's your plan?

    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    On the day of? Fast until mealtime, get a good workout in, and then just the hell with it from that point. Enjoy!

    Beforehand? Lots of fasting, good exercise, and when I do eat, eating a healthy primal meal, low in carbs.

    I will probably stay away from the most egregious offenders such as corn pudding and bread/rolls if they make an appearance, but otherwise, I plan not to be too anal about it.

    You know - if you are invited to a meal where most of the food is cooked from scratch, just eat whatever you want. Think about it. Turkey or some other meat, cranberries, vegetables of all sorts, potatoes, butter, pumpkin pie, whipped cream, apple pie...

    I plan to eat the turkey, ham, taters and veggies, devilled eggs, olives, pickles, etc. The desserts are where I will have to be careful also. Those are what will make me feel icky.

    Buying shoes online?

    In terms of food, I think that eating a roasted turkey would be pretty high up there.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    I plan to eat whatever is there that won't cause me issues like turkey and veggies. the only thing I need to steer clear of is the gluten bc the dairy allergies I can deal with.I always bring things to holiday meals anyways as do most people in my family.
