WHAT EXACTLY IS PALEO?
The Paleo diet is built around the principle of “eating the way our ancestors ate.” It can get confusing, and there are some grey areas , but for the most part, these are the rules:
NOT PALEO: Dairy, grains, processed sugars, white potatoes, legumes*, alcohol.
PALEO APPROVED: Meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, healthy fats, certain unprocessed sweeteners and sugars (honey, maple syrup, and agave are OK).
This presents a little bit of a challenge on Thanksgiving, a holiday that traditionally involves gluten-filled bread stuffing and lots of butter. But, with the right recipes, it’s possible to have a holiday dinner with all of your favorite Thanksgiving staples.
