An Autoimmune Protocol Thanksgiving – Recipe Round Up!

autoimmune protocol thanksgiving

Celebrating Thanksgiving this year but you’re also on the elimination phase of the AIP? No fear! The band of AIP bloggers have come together to help you still have a glorious Autoimmune Protocol Thanksgiving.

I did strict AIP for an entire year, and Thanksgiving happened to come along and I panicked, well, just a little. And if a food blogger is panicking, then it’s a pretty serious deal. I threw together last year’s Thanksgiving meal, but this year I am so much better prepared for an Autoimmune Protocol Thanksgiving, with some amazing recipes, including some new dessert ones I created myself!

Autoimmune Protocol Thanksgiving


Thank goodness there isn’t anything that you really need to do to make a Turkey MORE AIP than it already is! Simply bake as directed but don’t stuff. Easy enough! Save the drippings for delicious gravy, or if you’re adventurous like me, you can debone the turkey and put all of the bones + water + tasty veggies into your Instant Pot for 120 minutes make a DELICIOUS turkey bone broth that you add a little bit of arrowroot to later to thicken. I do this every year I’ve been Paleo and we have gravy for days!

Cassava Flour Crackers

My crispy, salty crackers are the perfect appetizer and compliment any soup or dip, or served on their own with jam!

The Ultimate Cheese and Charcuterie Platter 

Delicious and easy appetizer platter with AIP/Paleo cheese from the Squirrel in the Kitchen! I love how simple this is with AIP approved vegetables, fruits, and meats, but how beautiful the results are.
