I’ve been so busy just living life that I just now realized my 5-year Paleo-versary came and went in mid-September. Just as true now as then: I will never go back to “BEFORE”!
04/21/2016… The day the music died (for our generation).
So sad to hear about Prince. Paisley Park is just minutes west of where we live. I loved him.

maple syrup and jam
…and a side order of ham
With waffles to hold it all!

So blessed to be these boys’ Mamma!

Thanksgiving was pretty low-key this year at our house. It was just the four of us and the cats.
I did roast the annual Ferndale Farms pastured turkey, and there was pumpkin pie, of course. The exciting part was the addition of Otto’s cassava flour to the recipes. It made an awesome gravy thickener, as well as real pie crust and bread rolls. Thank you Paleo Mom and Zenbelly for the pie crust and dinner roll recipes!
So while the rest of the family played and watched the parade on TV, I was in the kitchen.
Most of the food was made the day before, as I only have one oven and it was needed for the turkey. For the fifth year, I used my trusty America’s Test Kitchen recipe for turkey and gravy, substituting Paleo-friendly ingredients. I can always count on them for perfection!
Bent the rules a bit and made fingerling potatoes and stuffing with Udi’s Gluten-Free bread.
Added bacon deviled eggs for the appetizer (aka breakfast!) and Tigernut apple crisp.
FINALLY found this – and it is the BEST! So good I stocked up on a few tubs for Christmas…
just in case there’s a run on it at the co-op – yes, it’s that good! *nom nom nom*
This was Max’s first Thanksgiving feast, and he enjoyed it immensely.
A little cautious about the pie and whip at first…
Then grabbed the whole thing and chomped it down!
BIG smile! Toddler-approved.
Our new kittens Remi & Ella helped with the cleanup. Panda & Raven got some turkey later.
We had our first snowfall of the season after a mild, extended Fall.
So Alex finally got his wish, and gleefully played in it.
Bundled up Max, only to find he outgrew his snow boots before ever wearing them! Oy!
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
Time to make notes for next year and start on Christmas celebration planning…
The Bulletproof cookbook is HERE at last!
NO other cookbook was able to recreate classic recipes—traditional recipes everyone craves (even your non-paleo/anti-Bulletproof friends and family)—until now…
Here’s what’s inside…
• Traditional Recipes Made Bulletproof – Make all your former favorites healthy enough to be bulletproof with easy to prepare substitutions for nearly every single kryptonite food or antinutrient you can no longer eat…
• “Tastes Just Like Comfort Food” Alternatives – Starch-rich homestyle favorites are made Bulletproof diet friendly enough to even make your mother remember the taste of home when she visits…
• Simple, Delicious, Fast And Bulletproof – Easy to prepare even for inexperienced (or actually “I’ve never before cooked a single meal chefs) meals that utilize Dave Asprey’s nutrients instead of the unhealthy processed foods you’ll find in magazine meals…
• Seasonal, Local Whole-Food Guide – Use fresh local proteins, fruits and vegetables instead of “I have no clue where they came from” supermarket imports thanks to the included local and fresh food guide…
• Intolerance And Autoimmune Substitutions – Dozens of included options to help your discriminating palate decide on nutrient options that are healthy and Bulletproof friendly…
• And Much, Much More inside the definitive recipe guide designed to accompany the Bulletproof Diet.
I can tell you for a fact, this Bulletproof: The Cookbook is absolutely everything that you need in a recipe guide made for the Bulletproof Diet!
Until now, it’s been difficult to adapt (or nearly impossible unless you’re an expert chef) Bulletproof guidelines to make traditional recipes.
