I admit, I pouted when I was told to eliminate coconut {along with some other foods} from my already AIP diet. But I soon found out I am not alone. It’s funny how others with similar stories seem to come out of the woodwork once you are more aware…

It’s safe to assume if you are celebrating Thanksgiving next week you’ll end up with copious amounts of leftover turkey. That’s not a bad thing in my book! In fact my family has been eating turkey for the past several weeks simply because The Mister did the math and found it to be more cost effective than our usual chicken purchases.

Not only did this allow me the opportunity to revisit my Spatchcocked Turkey recipe, but it forced me to get a bit creative with leftovers. I’d say that’s a win-win!

Without further rambling, here are some recipes you can use for inspiration when zhushing up your leftover turkey…

Sweet Potatoes and Marshmallows

Crazy, right? But to be fair I didn’t know sweet potatoes like I know them now. I can’t remember a time we had actual sweet potatoes other than an over-glorified side dish. The only time I remember seeing sweet potatoes was during the holidays and they were those canned yams {which we all know are actually sweet potatoes, despite the name} with mini marshmallows on top. I always got odd looks when I declined a spoonful when it was being passed around the table.

Cut to a couple of weeks ago when I was making sweet potatoes in my new favorite way {spotted via Instagram thanks to @aipxwhole30 / It’s me, Charlotte!} and The Mister and I were discussing Thanksgiving… it hit me like a ton of bricks.

Deconstruct and rebuild that dish I glowered dubiously at all these years {you know, without using an abnormally large can of “yams” or GMO corn-laden marshmallows} and call it what it truly should be called…

DESSERT.
