With Christmas fast-approaching we’ve decided to dedicate this week’s news round-up to articles that should help you prepare for the big day itself. We’ve collected both articles from this past week and classics from the archives. Let’s get started!
Roast Chicken With Inside Out Stuffing
Over on Eat Drink Paleo Irena Macri has created an excellent roast chicken recipe complete with a sage, bacon, leek, garlic and nut stuffing (don’t forget to pre-soak the nuts). The chicken recipe can easily be adapted for turkey and those with a dairy allergy could substitute the butter/ghee in the stuffing for coconut oil.
For more Christmas ideas and inspiration from Eat Drink Paleo you could do far worse than check out the Paleo Christmas/Thanksgiving Menu from a couple of years back.

Christmas Diet Tips
This article may surprise some people as it’s not quite so overtly Paleo. However, I’ve been a big of fan of Nick Mitchell and his Ultimate Performance gym ever since I went there for Active Release Technique work on my shoulder after an injury a few years ago. Since then I’ve been following his blog and YouTube for weightlifting and general fitness tips. His six Christmas diet tips at the end of the article are well worth perusing for ‘damage control’ going into the Christmas season.
