Paleo Christmas Recipes

 

Right now I’m reminiscing about Christmas.  Growing up my parents would listen to Stevie Wonder’s Christmas album and my siblings and I would spend the entire month searching for where my parents had stashed our gifts.  I remember clearly the year I got a Big Wheel.  I was riding that baby like a bat out of hell on December 20th when I found it in the garage. Ha! My mother was not pleased.

Anyhow, Christmas was a celebration of food, family, religion and gifts and it has not changed for me as I’ve gotten older.   Last month I shared 50 Paleo Thanksgiving Recipes and there is a lot from that list that you could use in your Christmas celebration. Here are 40 Paleo Christmas recipes to keep everyone full and happy on the big day.

It all looks so good. We are doing a heart healthy menu and I have found that Paleo fits with a lot of that. I am always on the look out for new recipes and this list is great.
