Although I cook and eat a very low sugar diet, it is so hard not to add some sweetener in this festive recipe.  I have been using a recipe that I found 18 years ago and as my diet has evolved so have the ingredients. Happy Thanksgiving and make this recipe at least a day before your celebratory meal. 

When I gave up dairy, I thought it was the end to artichoke dip with chips. I had to figure out how to make both the dip and the chips.  Here is an appetizer that will take a little bit of time but it also teaches you a little about batch cooking. The chips, bacon and garlic can all be done days ahead.  Enjoy! 

Fall is the season when the air gets crisp and I start to crave  warmer foods.  I have made this recipe so many times and I add something different.  Since I first started making this, I have been adding sauteed red onion on top with the turkey bacon. This recipe is so yummy and Whole30 compliant.

Brisket Whole 30 Amazingly Easy and so Good!

Brisket is loved for many reasons. In Kansas City it is usually covered in sugary sauce. Here is a recipe that is still tasty and not loaded with any sugar.  It is a great recipe to start in the morning in the crock pot and eat when you get home. I hope you enjoy!

For my Vegetarian Friends, this is a great way to get your veggies in and not feel left out during the holidays. Easy to make and really you can add any veggies to this that you have on hand. Don't be afraid to try different combinations of veggies!

My latest ingredient is adding fresh Spinach or Arugula at the end to get extra greens. Just fold the greens into the pan and let the leaves wilt. For an added crunch add some pine nuts when you are ready to serve. This can be made the day before and reheated in the microwave or on the stove-top.

Onion Chicken Not Whole 30 But So Good

This recipe is something that I have been making for many years for my family. As I have said, there are always ways to make something cleaner, healthier and better for you. I am not going to tell you that I never have something that I generally don’t eat for my immune issues. I am all about being honest, being real and creating memories with the ones I love. I have never had anyone not like this recipe and I hope you enjoy this as well.

PS We make this for almost all cold weather holidays but I have been known to also make it before they leave for camp, or summer birthdays!

Butternut Squash, Red Onion, Spinach and Dried Cranberry Salad Whole 30

This is an easy side for any time of year. I love the versatility with this salad, it is amazing hot or cold.  This will be a great addition to your holiday dinners but don't forget about how great it can be anytime!

This can be made the day before and reheated before dinner.

Whole 30 Roasted Green Beans with Apricots and Toasted Pecans

 This easy side dish has a great combination of flavors, and roasting the green beans really brings out their flavor. I chose Apricots because they have the lowest glycemic level of the dried fruits at my local grocery store. I am sure you could come up with a few different combinations between fruit and nuts! Enjoy

If you are someone that is doing the Whole 30 Program for health reason and miss your dairy desserts. You have to give this a try. There are a lot of different combinations for this recipe, just be careful that you don't pick the sugary fruits. Also don't forget to open avocado, scoop out on to plastic wrap and freeze. The texture is so creamy and you will be amazed how this treat satisfies your dessert cravings.

These are amazing little desserts for your Thanksgiving table this year! They can be made in steps and can be made the day before and stored in the refrigerator.  These are not Whole30 Compliant because they have maple syrup in the crust to use as the binder and sweetener. One option for total compliance is to make just the filling and add to small glasses for it to set. 

This is so easy and very versatile. I wrote in the recipe that you can use dry berries of your choice, you could also make a fruit salad and top the tortillas with a small amount of fruit. If you are skipping the Dairy Free Whipped cream, you can always sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon.
