Thanksgiving is probably the one time during the year that people everywhere eat their hearts out. However, just because it’s a day of feasting doesn’t mean we can’t continue eating food made with real ingredients!
You can have a real food Thanksgiving. Whether it’s cranberry sauce, stuffing, or potatoes there are recipes to help you switch out old traditional dishes for their real food versions.

Below you will find a great collection of Thanksgiving recipes that use real food ingredients. No sugar, no canned foods, no margarine. Just real food Thanksgiving recipes.
