Thanksgiving is so close, I can almost taste it!

It’s one of the many holidays that we celebrate where the focus is on family, friends, and food. And while that focus is great, if you find that you have dietary restrictions (perhaps, gluten-free and “sometimes” dairy-free like this girl!) that make it 10x harder to eat during the holidays, it can cause a bit of pain in the butt and not to mention, a serious letdown.  This is why I have compiled a list of delicious Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Sides!

How many times have you been at a family gathering, and fill your plate full of a few random veggies and fruit just because there were literally no other options for you to eat? Don’t get me wrong…fruits and veggies are great, but being gluten-free doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy some “hearty comfort” food as well!

Bring on the cornbread y’all!

Rest easy this Thanksgiving holiday knowing that you can, and will, enjoy some of those infamous Thanksgiving sides just like everyone else! If your holiday season needs to be tweaked, get excited over these Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Sides that you’ll be able to enjoy as well!

Just because you're gluten-free doesn't mean Thanksgiving is COMPLETELY over. Try some of these Healthy Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Sides this holiday season! #thecraftyguru #glutenfree #healthy #thanksgiving #holidayseason #food #recipe

  1. Wow! I DON’T have a gluten problem and these dishes look absolutely delicious! I would love to serve these at our house, especially those very tasty looking green beans. 😀

  2. Thank you for this inspiration. I just recently went lactose and gluten free because I noticed I feel so much better when I don’t consume them. I have been so clueless ever since on my way forward and you won’t imagine how difficult it has been to find a variety of gluten free bread for example. I will incorporate these recommendations in my diet and maybe even review your suggestions. Keep em coming! Xx

    1. Thank you! If you ever want to talk or ask me questions, please reach out. I’ve been gluten free for almost 7 years!
