Make an INCREDIBLE Paleo Holiday Dinner!

Hi Friends- here’s a look back at our week, plus everything you need to make an incredible Paleo holiday dinner!

Oh this kid! A totally adorable COOKIE MONSTER who provides our family with endless entertainment. This photo was taken one year ago when we made these Snowman Puddle Cookies – they weren’t a total artistic masterpiece, but the boys loved them, which is what counts! We love making holiday memories!

Speaking of cookies, or lack thereof…after almost three weeks of a more strict application of AIP, which includes no alcohol and no sweeteners, I feel SO MUCH BETTER. I think we all tell ourselves that certain foods don’t bother us, and ignore the small “normal” things like stuffy noses, headaches, or in my case – water retention and less than perfect skin. Thanks to my elimination diet though, I’m proudly sporting this unfiltered clean face for you as a reminder that foods can affect more than you know!

My face was splotchy with red bumps after indulgences in November (even though they were mostly Paleo!). With my history of disordered eating, I don’t do 21-day or 30-day detoxes, or diet programs anymore. In order to get BACK ON TRACK, I simply went back to the foods that I know nourish and heal by avoiding all nightshades, reducing nuts, seeds, and chocolate, increasing Vital Proteins Collagen (10% off and free shipping code below!), broth, organ meats, and seafood. The result? Cleared skin and the release of water retention – the best sign my body gives for happy, healthy insides!

Ready to get on the nutrient-dense wagon? If you want to watch your kids SCARF DOWN helping after helping of veggies, get this recipe for “Cheesy” Broccoli Casserole from Fed + Fit, topped with Steve’s Paleogoods Cracklins. We paired it with our Citrus Chicken from Real Life Paleo.

We’re so happy that we put time and effort into helping the boys become good eaters! They willingly eat veggies and nutrient-dense seafood like these Mussels not Muscles from Eat Like a Dinosaur. It was Cole’s idea to pair it with Chicken Pot Pie from Beyond Bacon, and although it seemed like an odd pairing at the time – it was AMAZING!! Kudos to the kid for this dinner suggestion.

Almond Milk Latte Talk with Stacy: Make an INCREDIBLE Paleo Holiday Dinner! Paleo Parents

We’ve been tackling holidays Paleo-style for six years now – so we’ve got the routine down. We spend time with friends and family, eat incredible food, participate in the same traditions we always have, and make great memories with the boys! All while continuing to eat nutrient-dense Paleo foods. Here are some of our favorite:

Paleo Christmas Necessities

The Holiday Survival Box (which we designed with One Stop Paleo Shop) contains healthy sweets and treats for helping you survive the holidays – whether it be for traveling, cookie-baking marathons, or fuel for holiday shopping trips!

Our holiday traditions always involve two special things: Monkey Bread and Holiday Bundt Cake, both which require a bundt pan. Not only is the shape fun, but this heavy duty pan provides even cooking for incredible baked treats!

Whether it’s a topping for pie, hot chocolate, or another special holiday treat, you can make healthy whipped cream (with heavy cream or any coconut milk!) with the isi Cream Whipper. This was one of my favorite gifts from the boys years ago, and is something we use almost weekly. And for a great non-treat “treat,” we also love simple unsweetened whipped cream on fresh or frozen berries!

Nutmeg– have you seen it like this before? We love using whole nutmeg and grating it ourselves with a grater/zester. It is sooo much better and adds incredible holiday-warm-spice-flavor to everything!
