I caved, and had gluten free bread stuffing and regular mashed potatoes. I made cranberry sauce with honey this year though and half what the recipe calls for. No dessert. ALl in all, I guess it could have ben worse, but definitely not good!

I'm cooking Thanksgiving dinner for my entire, non-paleo family. For some things, like the pies, I'm bowing to tradition and making the pastry crust. It's just one meal. My sister is bringing bread rolls, because for most of my family, it wouldn't be dinner w/o them. I just won't eat any. The big change this year is I'm making a gluten free dressing from PaleOMG:
I tried it last weekend and it is REALLY good. I didn't miss the croutons in any way.

As I now live in England, where Thanksgiving is not celebrated, of course, I don't go anywhere.. and still work!

That said, when I have done the meal for (English) hubby and myself, I do a turkey, broccoli, maybe a salad too, and mash cauliflower instead of potatoes.

Still, it's nothing like home -- I miss my family so much, especially this time of year! :(

I do better when I'm not the cook such as this year.

The holiday season is notorious for railroading nutritional plans, diets and what have you.

How are you adapting to Thanksgiving?

To be honest, this is the first Thanksgiving in forever that I will be eating at home, alone (well, the cats are here, too), so it will be easy for me this time around -- I plan on stuffing a chicken with a sweet potato, celery and shallot mix, seasoned with nutmeg; and eating that along with some greens. The cats will get some of the denser breast meat (which I personally dislike), and the carcass will become stock later this weekend.

Anyhow, let us know what you plan to do, especially if you are aiming to be reasonably traditional, but yet still want to have some Paleo aspects to your feast.

Got rid of the ticker cuz my scale decided to flatter me unduly. I haven't re-gained, just got a better, honest, scale.

Just because you steam it, doesn't mean you can't add herbs and spices. (A gripe at those insipid restaurant "healthy choice" menu selections.)
