Healthy and Easy Paleo Recipes for the Holidays
Now that Fall is upon us and the Holiday season is just around the corner, I thought it was time to talk turkey. Turkey, pumpkin, soups, squash and all the other yummy tastes that come along with the the shorter Autumn days. Nutritionists say meal and food prep is the name of the game when it comes to eating healthy. So I have come up with a selection of some of my favorite Paleo recipes from some of our cookbooks to save you time and help keep you on track. If you would know someone who loves to cook, these make a great gift or give a gift to yourself, they can be found here in our Paleo cookbooks collection.
Paleo Slow Cooking by Chrissy Gower
- Try Chrissy’s Hearty Butternut Squash Soup. Anytime I can make a dinner in the slow cooker I feel like I am accomplishing so much more in a day. In my opinion, soup typically tastes better the next day but this recipe cooked in a slow cooker tastes rich and hearty right out of the pot and it produces the most delicious leftovers, if you have any left.
Make-Ahead Paleo by Sarah Fragoso
- Sarah is one of the original Paleo superstars and for good reason. I have always had great success with her recipes and her Make-Ahead Paleo cookbook is no exception. So many of the recipes in this book remind me of all the things I love about Fall and will have friends and family asking for seconds. Some of my favorites from Sarah’s latest book to make for a crowd are Apple Cider Chicken Thighs, Paleo Party Mix, and the Pumpkin Pie Bars. Doesn’t that sound like am amazing Sunday football menu?
The Paleo Chocolate Lovers’s Cookbook by Kelly Brozyna
- Don’t let the beautiful picture on the cover intimidate you. Kelly does a great job explaining ingredients, equipment and the right kind of chocolate to use to keep in Paleo. You may also think this cookbook is exclusive to desserts but think again. You will also find savory dishes like Tomato & Cherry Chicken Cutlets and a Chili recipes that are complimented by chocolate. Highlights for me have been the Paleo Hazelnut Pancakes with Chocolate Syrup, think Paleo Nutella, YUM!, the Aztec Hot Chocolate has also been a hit with my family.
There are so many amazing, delicious and Paleo friendly recipes out there that staying healthy during the holidays has become easier and easier. You will not only impress your guests with your delicious food but also and give them a gift of healthy eating this holiday season.
