The Ultimate 2016 Paleo Holiday Recipes ! The holiday is right around the corner and I asked my favorite Paleo and primal food blogger friends to contribute share favorite holiday recipe(s) with IHeartUmami readers.
Whether you’re in the part of the world that’s getting cooler, or that that’s getting warmer, I handpicked a wide variety of holiday dishes that are bound to satisfy the entire family.
I divided this post into 8 sections – appetizer/sides, main dishes, vegetables, sauce/gravy/stuffing, starchy veggies/good carbs, sweets, and even brining combos and next day breakfast. Each dish is distinct so you can pick-and-choose.
