Gluten Free? Vegan? Paleo? Food restrictions? YES! You and your family CAN enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner with normal and traditional dishes that meet a special nutrition protocol AND that everyone will love. I sourced Pinterest for hours looking for the best recipes I could find to help you plan your Thanksgiving dinner. Stuffing? Yup! Pumpkin Pie? Yup! It's all here - everything but the turkey and the dirty dishes in the kitchen sink!

 

Like I said, I sourced Pinterest for the best of the best.  I went to known and popular food bloggers in this space to find the most complimentary dishes to share with you.  As always, please check the ingredients and ensure that you are preparing food that is safe for you and your nutrition protocol.

 

Stuffing and Rice

I think I started with stuffing and rice because nothing says Thanksgiving comfort food more than stuffing or rice.  We have never been into rice at Thanksgiving, but I do know that some people enjoy it, and I know you will love these dishes!

I think the best part of Thanksgiving dinner is the stuffing. Wait, no... pumpkin pie. Mmmmmm.... pumpkin pie. But second place is definitely stuffing. Ok, solid second. I've been trying for awhile to perfect a gluten free and vegan stuffing and I think I finally got it. It's better than Stovetop, that is for sure!

Cranberry Sauce

I think I’m the only person in my family who loves cranberry sauce.  Add a little bit of sweet to counter the tart and bring it home to mamma!  One of these recipes is BOOZY cranberry sauce!  So you can get sauced with the sauce LOL!!!

Salads and Veggies

Who says that salads and veggies have to be bohr-ring?  While salads and veggies are never the star of Thanksgiving, these dishes will certainly shine.

Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes.  I bet just saying mashed potatoes that you are thinking, “there is nothing better than Grandma’s mashed potatoes.” Am I right? While these may not be Grandma’s version, they will make a delicious substitute.
