Like I said, I sourced Pinterest for the best of the best.  I collaborated with well-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, as each recipe is different and not all recipes are all of the above.

 

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 serving 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!!!

The debate over the cranberry sauce - canned or homemade? Seriously? This cranberry sauce recipe is one that everyone will love. It's naturally sweet and is gluten free, vegen, and Paleo, with one little switch to also make it Whole30 and keto.  Nothing to argue about here! Get the recipe...

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.

For those of you who co-op your produce or just enjoy adding seasonal fruit to your salad, this pear salad is sure to please. Pomegranates add a juicy sweetness, and the lemon poppy seed vinaigrette balances with a hint of tartness. Take your boring salad to a delicious treat with this healthy recipe.

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.

Fall and apple crisp go together like... well... fall and apple crisp.  This recipe is made in a skillet and is gluten free and vegan. For those with these dietary protocols, it doesn't... fall... short on flavor one bit! Oh and PS - it has some yummy caramel flavor which takes the flavor over the top!
