Lemons 'n Lyme

When life gives you lemons, use them to beat Lyme

Thanksgiving Face Stuffing



Turkey! My dad made it, don’t ask me.


Cranberry sauce with orange and star anise. I don’t really like cranberry sauce (too much sugar!) but this was pretty good. I only tasted it because there was a lot of sugar in it.


Grilled Kale and Radicchio with an orange sauce and toasted almonds. Not my fav… I’m not a huge fan of kale when it is crispy, I like it when it is sauted and soft.


The BEST stuffing ever! I hate stuffing but this I couldn’t stop eating. Not fully paleo, as it was made with cornbread. But, I love cornbread! We made a completely gluten free/flour free cornbread. This stuffing was cornbread, butternut squash, and sausage. To die for.


One of my all time favorite t-giving recipes, sautéed Brussels sprouts with chestnuts.


This was a baked sweet potato casserole wit this amazing sauce/dressing and chopped nuts on top.



And dessert! I made a paleo pecan pie and a cinnamon pear ice cream (paleo-made with coconut milk). Here is the recipe for the pie: http://paleospirit.com/2011/paleo-pecan-pie-tart/

Thanksgiving was amazingly good this year. Great company and DELICIOUS food. One of the best meals I think we’ve ever made, although my mom and I start Thanksgiving planning about a month in advance so it’s always delicious. If you want any of the recipes just let me know and I’ll be happy to share them. I don’t have all of them with me/online so I didn’t post all the recipes. I hope you all had great Thanksgiving’s, as well!


Author: Lemons 'n Lyme

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)

  1. All of it looks delicious! If you don’t like cranberry sauce because of the sugar you should try my GM’s cranberry sauce. No sugar in it! It’s delicious! 😀


  2. YUM! I’m coming to your house for Thanksgiving next year! Haha 🙂


  3. Beautiful meal! That pie looks so good. I need to try my hand at a pecan pie. I’ve saved a few recipes, but have yet to give it a go.


  4. Great buildups…..I don’t really like…..the kale was awesome and sophisticated. Really, really good. It was Lacinato Kale(big crunchy leaves) with orange olive oil and nuts and a smokey off the grill taste.


  5. Paleo pecan pie.. I need to try the recipe! Sounds delicious.


  6. I would never make fun. It was one of the best meals we have had. I would love the pecan pie recipe to try again at home. I have learned so much form you 🙂
