Thanksgiving Menu Ideas – Raw & Cooked

Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  I wanted to share some ideas with you that you might want to consider for your food repertoire this year.  You could go ALL raw, ALL cooked or even MIX it up, baby!  That’s what we’re doing – Mixing it up for culinary delights!   So, enjoy looking through some food porn and pick and choose what you might want to try.  I am not going with traditional items here because THAT’S HOW I ROLL – I am NOT traditional.  I am my own spunky, creative, adventurous type.  So, look outside the box and do something different.  Make this holiday YOUR OWN.  Make something that WOWS! people and creates a conversation to where people say “This is FANTASTIC!  I want the recipe!”    Be inspired to INSPIRE others.  THAT would make me “over the moon” HAPPY!! 🙂


Scott and I are by ourselves this year for the Holiday, so we will probably keep it simple with some roasted veggies, onion socca, massaged kale salad, and a raw dessert (Haven’t decided which one to do yet!)  – recipe links below.  We’ll make plenty so that there will be leftovers for a few days.

I am grateful EVERYDAY for the blessings and abundance in my life.  The BEST attitude is an ATTITUDE of GRATITUDE.   I don’t celebrate once a year on this popular holiday – I celebrate EVERYDAY in the way I live, the choices I make in all aspects of my life (body, mind and spirit) and the friends/family that I adore, cherish and LOVE.  This GRATITUDE also goes out to each and every one of you – my lovely, amazing, fabulous readers!  I LOVE hearing from you and encourage you to reach out more.  ♥

Roasted Carrot, Lemon & Avocado salad with Tangy dressing & Toasted seeds


Cheesy Cauliflower Mash


Healthy Mexican Veggie Quinoa Recipe


Add Italian seasoning instead of Mexican spices to make it more in conjunction with other items in your menu.

Onion QUINOA Socca


I like making this onion socca in place of standard cornbread. I have made vegan cornbread in the past, but this guy gets front and center on my table this year – tastes AMAZING and digests easily.


Dark Chocolate Zucchini Cake with RAW Chocolate Icing & Raspberries


This cake is PHENOMENOL by itself without the icing and raspberries – if you want to keep it simple.

Healthy Sweet Potato Chocolate Chip Cookies


Great way to end the dinner or later for a snack (if you have room).

Have a wonderful, safe and JOYOUS Holiday! XO

  1. Hi Kibby! Thanks for some great ideas for Thanksgiving! We are doing some traditional and some raw traditional like apple pie and kale salad. Colette likes Tofurkey so I will probably make that as well. Maybe a few brussel sprouts and steamed sweet potatoes..mostly the usual will a little experimentation to match some of the items I picked up at the farmers market. Anyhow lots of fun and maybe a costume contest, pilgrim or Native American to keep everyone laughing. Hope you have a fantastic week! Linda xo
