18 Real Food Thanksgiving Recipes

 If you're like me, you have been thumbing through cookbooks and wasting hours on Pinterest for weeks, trying to figure out what the heck cook for Thanksgiving dinner.  Regular 'ol, day-to-day meal planning can be stressful enough, but holiday meal planning can be downright overwhelming....especially when you are trying to eat real, whole foods. All those delicious pie recipes seem to call for refined sugar and the ingredient list on the boxes of instant gravy is too scary to even look at. So where do you start cooking a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner that will actually nourish your family and friends without pushing you the brink of sanity? By taking a deep breath, grabbing a notebook, maybe pouring yourself a cup of tea and reading on.

Below is a little collection of Thanksgiving-friendly recipes to help you get planning without stressing. Some of the recipes are mine. Some are from bloggers that I love. All are made with real, wholesome ingredients. Regardless of if you are vegan, Paleo, vegetarian, gluten free, omnivore, or a hybrid of several eating styles, I've included something for everyone.  So get reading, planning, and then cooking!
