Thanksgiving always seems to creep up on me slowly — I know it’s coming — and then, it’s here! I’m a little behind this year in my planning, but I think I can still catch up. With the help of some fantastic real food bloggers, I think I will be just fine!
As you may have noticed lately, I’ve been in love with Kabocha squash. It’s just as seasonal as pumpkin, and in my humble opinion, much easier to work with as just as tasty! I will be sure to have those flourless recipes at my table. If you are not grain-free or dairy-free, here are some recipes for you as well.
Some are appropriate for SCD, GAPS, Paleo and Primal diets — some are not. However, it is easy to substitute in coconut milk or cream for dairy, or honey for other sweeteners. Just be aware that not all the recipes are grain-free or dairy-free.
