Holidays are approaching…cold weather…comfy clothes…good food and extra pounds right?! This is the time of year we always gain anywhere from 5 to 10 pounds. With the blink of an eye, a few bad health choices, we are back wearing those old jeans making New Year Resolutions. While a lot of us do like the traditional holiday foods, it would be a much healthier choice to keep your holiday table full of real wholesome foods! So why not have a Paleo thanksgiving? It is not only good for your waistline, but good for your overall health, and the food is delicious! I have put together just a few of the best Thanksgiving recipes out there, to make your Thanksgiving easier! Some of these dishes will be on my table as well! Exciting!

Compound Butter is almost necessary for your Thanksgiving Turkey. I cover my turkey with it the night before so it gets cold on the turkey skin, then bake it the following morning, and the skin is crispy and perfect! I do the same, but use Kerry Gold Butter.
