Thanksgiving Stuffing Paleo Style

I don’t know about you, but stuffing is by far my favourite Thanksgiving dish – it even tops turkey!

Traditionally, my family prepares stuffing with some gluten containing ingredients that I can’t eat because of my IBS. So, since depriving myself on Thanksgiving is NOT an option, I created a stuffing recipe that not only tastes delicious, but that my whole family enjoys.

Give my paleo & gut-friendly stuffing a try this Thanksgiving.
