When I heard about Paleo on the Go’s Thanksgiving Feast, I got REALLY curious about trying it. And then I had a few other thoughts:
- How could it possibly taste homemade?
- Would people really want Thanksgiving delivered?
- How would I photograph this feast (and make it look pretty) if it was good enough to share?
Granted, most people won’t worry about my third concern, but what about the others? Let’s start with number 2 and work backwards. Don’t people prefer to cook on Thanksgiving? Isn’t that the “fun” of it? Well, yes, it can be fun, especially when you have extended family contributing to the cooking. Everyone is responsible for “their” dish and then a magical fairy comes in and cleans up afterwards. Oh wait. Nope. That never happens. But cooking a homemade Thanksgiving feast can be great! But it’s also a ton of work AND for those of us with Autoimmune disease or other chronic illness, holidays can be a time of dread. They are extra work and can lead to stress and periods of recovery, just trying to execute them successfully. Then we have the situation of “busy”. Between traveling jobs and jumping between family homes for Thanksgiving, time is of the essence. It’s far more gratifying to have the gift of time to spend with each other when schedules rarely allow for that freedom. And what about sourcing? Maybe you don’t have access to pasture raised turkeys or other better ingredients for Thanksgiving. Paleo on the Go will make sure that you are well-fed and you can rest assured that their meats and other ingredients are of the utmost quality. Paleo on the Go feels like family. They make sure your meals come from their heart and “home.” So when they cook for you, it’s from scratch with high quality paleo ingredients. If their recipes are marked AIP, you know they are safe. And you can trust that if you wouldn’t stock it in your own paleo kitchen, neither would they. Which helps us answer question 1. How could it taste homemade? As mentioned above, it IS homemade. All the meals are baked fresh and then frozen so that the flavors are sealed right in until ready to eat. Their individual containers are such that you know exactly how long to cook which product, labeled with very clear instructions on each. Tonight I “made” Thanksgiving for dinner. I had my reservations but was pleasantly surprised when my kitchen was filled with all the traditional smells of Turkey Day. I still worried about how I might capture it all on film, and wasn’t sure about the flavor profiles, but the aroma was fantastic. And then, dinner was served. Wait for it…. Every person in my family loved Paleo on the Go’s Thanksgiving feast. My 4th kid, I mean husband, even proclaimed his love for the entire meal, and he can at times be harder to please than my REAL offspring. I still can’t claim that my photos are anywhere as delicious looking as the meal itself was, but I did my best to capture it. If you are having a hard time prepping for the holidays this year, need a break from the hustle, or just would like someone else to do the cooking for once, I can now fully and whole heartedly recommend this Paleo Thanksgiving Feast from Paleo on the Go.
