The Paleo Diet®: Eat This, Not That Over the Holidays

By Stephanie Vuolo, B.A.
December 23, 2019

One of our favorite ways to celebrate the holidays and the season of giving with our family is with food. Starting with Thanksgiving and ending through New Year’s Day, we dish up recipes from generations past. These classic holiday dishes often rely heavily on white flour and refined sugar. It can be overwhelming to the Paleo Dieter to navigate the decadent buffets, endless parade of sweets, and extravagant meals that accompany the season.

Luckily, it is still possible to follow the Paleo Diet principles, while enjoying the festive foods associated with the holidays. Staying the course by following Dr. Cordain’s 85:15 Rule will help you feel your best, discourage excess weight gain, and boost your immune system into the New Year.

What are your favorite traditional foods to eat during the holiday season? How can you tweak them to abide by the Paleo Diet? Tell us in comments!
