Can you believe it’s November already? I’ve already seen memes on social media saying we’re in the single digits talking about number of weekends left before Christmas is here. WHAT?!? I can’t even think about that right now! I love Christmas music, but I’m the type that refuses to listen to it until after Thanksgiving has passed. Each day goes by too fast already, let’s not rush things k?
Thanksgiving is coming up, and this is the time of year that most people start using as an excuse to drink more sugary or alcoholic drinks, eat more dessert/indulgent food, and skip workouts. I thought it would be the perfect time to round up some healthy, all natural (no processed ingredients) and mostly Paleo recipes to comfort you on cold days, to bring to holiday parties, and to sneak into your Thanksgiving Day meals! None of these recipes are my own, but they do come from trusted sources. As you can see, Juli of PaleOMG is my favorite food blogger so her recipes take up most of this post.
