With these animal-based recipes for Thanksgiving, you can make a variation of the festive foods you know and love – dinner rolls, stuffing, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, an apple crisp – using whole, nutrient-dense foods without sacrificing taste or pleasure.
In this post, you will find 23 animal-based recipes to help you celebrate Thanksgiving – 13 sides and 10 desserts – but without all of the crap ingredients like seed oils and processed sugar. These recipes can be paired with any of your favorite meats whether you decided to do a turkey this year or stick with ruminant animals. And believe it or not, many of these recipes (even the pumpkin pie!) have meat and animal foods already in them.
The following recipes (and the rest of the recipes on this website) use animal-based ingredients, like beef, pork, chicken, uncured meats, organ meats, animal fats, some low toxicity fruits and vegetables, honey, and (optional) zero carb condiments, herbs, and spices.
I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I enjoyed creating them!
