I am sick, exhausted, and have laid eyes on my husband for probably four minutes thus far this week, so today’s post is going to be short. But, I’ve been awful about my Friday posts this (crazy, crazy) month, so I don’t want to miss.
Speaking of missing things, I hope you didn’t miss my post about publication of my novel, The Myth of Jake. I’ve had so much fun discussing the characters and themes with my friends. If you all are interested in a blog post Q&A, reply on Facebook or here and let me know.
If you are on the hunt for Thanksgiving sweets, here are some that I have found:
- Paleo Caramel Apple Pie Bars from Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind
- Magic Brownie Bars from PaleOMG
- “Oatmeal” Raisin Cookies from Comfy Belly
- Sweet Potato Cake from Paleo Fondue
- Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies from Gourmande in the Kitchen
- Cinnamon Cookie Pie Crust also from Comfy Belly
- Gingerbread from Things My Belly Likes
And for a fall-themed breakfast, check out these chocolate stuffed pumpkin pancakes from Butter Nutrition. Okay, so maybe they belong in the dessert category, too!
Food 52 brings us perfect looking GF dinner rolls. If you are hosting a gran free Thanksgiving but cannot fathom a holiday meal without rolls, this is one to check out.
If you are working to transition some of your grain and standard recipes to a more Paleo/Primal approach, I have two pieces for you. First, on the ins and outs of almond flour from Primal Docs. Second, a great piece on grain free baking from Ditch the Wheat. (I learned a lot, but y’all know baking isn’t my thing.)
And here’s a whole Pinterest board devoted to a Paleo Thanksgiving from Meatified.
Glutes, glutes, glutes! I know that strong, healthy glutes can be a sign of a strong yet supple pelvic floor. But one study shows that women with bigger bums are actually healthier in other ways, too.
Loved this little nugget from Amy Kubal, RD:
Did you Know – Chocolate has an anti-bacterial effect on the mouth and protect against tooth decay. #SUHWEET

Alignment Monkey does great work. Here’s a fab post called “Don’t Take a Seat,” and here’s some advice from it:
To get moving: Stand up to take phone calls and during meetings; walk to visit a colleague, rather than phoning or emailing; use a bathroom on a different floor; centralize trash and recycling bins and office equipment to encourage short trips during the work day; take the stairs; and park at the far end of the lot.
I leave you with a beautiful story of breastfeeding through a leukemia diagnosis. I am following sweet Olive’s journey on Facebook and she’s just entered another round of chemo. Let’s send that sweet little pea some good healing thoughts, shall we?
Until next week!
