OUR THANKSGIVING DAY MENU...

So after I finished my last post, I thought it would be fun to share our actual Thanksgiving Day menu. Many of you have asked me what I'm eating this year and the answer is a LOT of good stuff! My thyroid antibody level is still slightly high (I am SO close to normal though!), so I am sticking to the Autoimmune Protocol Diet (AIP) and this routine for a bit longer. As much as I hated it in the beginning, I am actually starting to like it. Most importantly, I feel about 98% better than I did this time last year. And when it comes to food, there are actually a lot of foods that I can have - I just have to figure out ways to get creative and incorporate lots of flavor without adding flour, butter, eggs, cheese, refined sugar, and a few other things that are in practically EVERYTHING - especially Thanksgiving food. That has been the tricky part, but I've learned a lot over the past 8 months and I will be incorporating what I've learned into our Thanksgiving Day meal. 

Below is a list of what we are having! Gosh my mouth is watering... I would never want my family to be deprived of things like mac & cheese, dressing, and pound cake because of my issues, so my mom and I are still cooking those things for them. The things I will be eating are denoted with a (*), which means they are mostly AIP or can be easily adapted into an AIP recipe. Also, all of the ingredients in the AIP recipes will be organic. I have included links to the most of the recipes in case you are interested!

Country Collard Greens (my mom's recipe) *
Honey-Glazed Sweet Potatoes w/ Baked Pink Lady Apples *
