A Thanksgiving Menu For Everyone At the Table

Well, folks, I’d say this does it. When I asked the bees to come up with some Primal Thanksgiving fare, I caught the looks exchanged that suggested they saw it as a personal challenge. Now I only regret that I wasn’t there to personally sample and enjoy the results. (They didn’t save me any either.)

This week our very own Dr. Lindsay Taylor offered salient points on making a conscious T-Day plan whether you’re Primal or Primal-keto. Today the question may be answered you for you (and I’ll wager you’ll like the solution) with this full-on Primal (and mostly keto) menu. The bees have outdone themselves this time with a truly Grok-worthy Thanksgiving extravaganza. Check it out, and let us know which recipes are inspiring your holiday planning.

Primal Style Roasted Turkey

As everyone knows, the turkey is the main event of the day—both in terms of preparation and enjoyment. Cooks spend hours prepping and basting with the hopes of a bird that puts the entire dinner crowd in awe. Guests wait in anticipation of the grand unveiling, not to mention the eating….

The end goal of every cook is succulent meat and a perfectly browned skin, but it can be a feat to balance. A “dry brining” process the day before and a creamy herb mix applied to the bird right before cooking offer a simple way to achieve the ultimate roasted look and juicy meat everyone will appreciate. The baking powder causes the skin to puff up and crisp—like turkey chicharrones.

Keto Turkey Gravy

Among the best parts of slow roasting meat are the delicious drippings. Rich, savory and flavorful liquid gold… To discard it, we’d suggest, borders on criminal.

While there’s nothing wrong with enjoying drippings on their own, most of us grew up enjoying the creamy texture of gravy on meats and vegetables. For some, it’s an indispensable element in a real holiday meal. And there’s no reason to deprive yourself if gravy is your thing. Even if you’re living keto, this recipe keeps your commitment. Most of all, it feels and tastes like indulgence itself.

Instant Pot Chicken “Noodle” Soup

Chicken noodle soup is comfort food that both adults and kids love. When you don’t have the time or the energy to make long simmered, all-day chicken soup, this is the recipe you need. In about an hour you’ll be slurping noodles from a bowl filled with rich, flavorful broth, chicken and yes, you read that right, noodles.

Shirataki noodles, a low-carb noodle alternative, make a tasty stir-fry and are eminently delicious in a bowl of soup. These almost flavorless noodles soak up some of the flavor in the broth, which is made using only dark meat for the richest flavor. The shredded thigh meat mixed in with the noodles makes a filling and satisfying bowl of chicken noodle soup. Low-carb, richly flavorful, and quick and easy means that this is chicken noodle soup everyone can love.

Roasted Bone Marrow with Rosemary and Garlic

Bone marrow is an important supplemental food that’s easy to love—if you love fatty, savory treats, that is. And bone marrow is a treat, with its over-the-top richness, meaty flavor and fatty, creamy texture. It’s delicious fuel for the body, brimming with vitamins and minerals.

Bone marrow is easy to prepare, too. It needs nothing more than a sprinkle of salt (and maybe some fresh herbs) to reach perfection in the oven.

Strawberry Spinach and Basil Salad

We couldn’t think of a better salad to close out the summer season with than this.

Simple, fresh, and sweet, it’s a perfect accompaniment to an omelet breakfast or a grilled chicken dinner, but it’s also a satisfying light meal in its own right. With just 6 ingredients (including the dressing) and 10 minutes of prep time, you have a delicious salad (and nutrient powerhouse) on the table.
