A Paleo Thanksgiving Menu & Shopping List

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, mostly because of the fond memories I have cooking with my family, taking walks in the brisk air, and indulging in a delicious meal, with those special once-a-year desserts (like my mom's pecan pie). 

Since adopting the paleo diet, Thanksgiving dinner hasn't changed too much, but it did take some time to adjust the menu to incorporate more healthy fats, pastured meats, grain-free and dairy-free side dishes, and paleo-friendly desserts. Here is my Paleo Thanksgiving Menu and shopping list that will have your guests hoping for seconds, but won't slip them into a food coma.

I was born in Manhattan to two native New Yorkers who met working in the Garment Industry. Fashion was the family business. Suburban Connecticut is where I grew up and often daydreamed about someday attending New York Fashion Week.

When I was in college studying Communication & Media, I met the man of my dreams. We married nearly one year after our first date, and have been adventuring together ever since. While we moved around the country for his job, I freelanced as a makeup artist, worked in retail, and blogged about style & beauty as a creative outlet. 

Moving back to New York led to serendipitously working for two major fashion houses, where I learned the ins and outs of the industry, and attended Fashion Week both backstage and in the tents. Soon after, Verily Magazine brought me on as Beauty Editor, which was my dream job. It combined all of my passions and hobbies into one, and granted me a deeper understanding of print and digital media. One year after that, I had my daughter and experienced true fulfillment in motherhood. 

Everywhere I have traveled, I have met incredible women who inspired me to be the best version of myself; to wake up every day feeling confident and ready to Carpe Diem. I want to inspire women to explore their feminine genius by investing in their self-worth. This lifestyle blog is the place where I can share my worldview, my experiences, and my tips and tricks to live a more fulfilling life, which include expert style and beauty advice, tips for healthy living, and reflections on marriage and motherhood.
