We love our families but when we all get together it can be stressful for some of us. Not to mention there is always a family member that can be challenging. There can be jealously or just other emotions that can come to the holiday table! Here are some tips I try to use so we call enjoy the time together as a family! As an Italian family there is always plenty of food not only the quantity of each dish but a huge variety to make everyone happy!
When I host Thanksgiving or any other holiday I want to make sure the day is enjoyed by all including myself. With a little advance planning and some social psychology, you can have the best day possible! At least you should feel you did what was possible to make it a memorable day for all.
Before you start the planning let’s start to make a list of the family members coming over! Some want to be the center of attention others can’t stand your brother-in-law and there is always the emotional sister. Let’s try to avoid family drama this year!

What do you keep in your pantry? I try to keep my pantry stocked so if I have an inspiration while at the grocery store then I know I can complete the recipe with items in my pantry. When protein goes on sale buy it in bulk, put in individual freezer bags and save for later. Having oils, nuts, dried spices and other pantry items will help you be creative when preparing your weekly Paleo meals. We have a Penzy’s spice store in town and it is great because you can sample different herbs and buy in a large or small quantity. If you have one near you – go check it out!
