Healthy Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up: Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free Recipes for All

Thanksgiving is upon us, and I’m thankful to get to gather & celebrate again. I always start planning my thanksgiving menu WELL in advance and I’m always looking for healthy thanksgiving recipes as alternatives to classic dishes. Anyone else?? 

This year, I’ve done the work for you and gathered my favorite HEALTHY Thanksgiving Recipes to add to the table. Disclaimer: Perhaps I should say, “HEALTHIER” Thanksgiving Recipes – since I believe in lifestyle balance. What I can promise- REAL food with REAL ingredients. 

I’ve been gluten-free and dairy-free for a long time, and I’m all about accommodating my guests on special diets. With a little forethought, it’s surprisingly simple to host a GF/DF holiday with healthy Thanksgiving recipes.
