Paleo Recipe - Turkey Stuffing

Paleo Turkey Stuffing

You might have been in that situation when you need to rush everything, including dinner, but time is just not enough. It is understandable given the current state of how much time we need to spend to attend to other things besides our Paleo dinner. It seems as though the holidays are no reason to slow down. So having the right strategy and recipe that you can use during the holiday rush can definitely be a great relief.

You may have experienced the rush in your own home when hosting a Thanksgiving dinner or any special dinner for that matter. After hosting a dinner or two, there may come a time when you thought you had enough time, but end up finding yourself struggling to get everything prepared and finished, whilst it looks like everything is under control to your guests. The result is a mess in the kitchen and potentially hungry guests. The only relief you may have from this particularly awful night is that your guests appreciate the food that was served.

In order for you not to make the same mistakes so you don’t end up rushing around it is natural to ask for advice.   You’ll find yourself getting plenty, but not everything is going to help. So in order to help you ensure that your Thanksgiving or Christmas Paleo dinner goes off without any problems, we offer some tips below. Along with a great recipe for a tasty and delicious stuffing for your Turkey.

Have a Plan

Paleo Diet - Have A Plan

Cliché? Yes. Useful? Definitely! If there is one thing that most people seem to forget is to have a good plan in place. Without a plan, you will surely find yourself buying things and ingredients you don’t need. You may also find that you use recipes that don’t suit the occasion, or don’t tell you exactly how long they take to prepare and cook. Having a plan in place works well even for dinners.

Know Your Guests

Paleo Food - Know Your Guests

When making the plan for your dinner (or any meal of the day), you need to know about the people who will be eating with you. Knowing exactly how many people will be coming to the dinner allows you to budget for it more effectively. Plus it will provide you with a better idea of how much food you’ll need. Also knowing who your guests are means you can consider which recipes you can or cannot cook.

Get As Much Help As You Can

Paleo Recipes - Get As Much Help As You Can!

You cannot do everything on your own. Whatever you do, whether it is planning or doing the grocery shop, you must seek help from family members and/or the people who live with you. Their suggestions on how to make some of the recipes and their contribution in the kitchen could prove to be a huge help. The preparation for occasions can also be tiresome and tedious, so having an extra pair of hands to chop, pound and cook the food is vital.

Breathe!

It can still get hectic even with a plan and help on your side, so learn to breathe. What you need to remember is even with all the planning in the world, you are still likely to encounter some problems along the way. When things feel as if they are getting out of control, take a step back from what you are doing. Take in a few deep breaths as till will help you to calm down and gather your thoughts. You’ll then be able to get back on track more easily. Breathing is not just calming for your emotions, it is especially calming for the brain. When you take in some extra oxygen you are helping to give your brain a boost and the fatigue you may be feeling is removed.

Find Recipes That Are Easy To Do

This is part of planning but ultimately deserves to be mentioned in this list. Having recipes with methods that are easy to make that result in delicious meals is definitely the better option. If you find a delicious dish that seems impossible for you to finish despite the help that you can get, then don’t push it. You can still make the recipe for another occasion. You may also try out new recipes a few weeks before your dinner (or lunch) party. With a trial, you’ll be able to determine whether you can easily pull off the new recipe even when everything’s in a rush.
