Thanksgiving week can be such a fun and enjoyable time for families throughout the USA.

However, when dealing with celiacs or gluten-intolerance, Thanksgiving can be a bit stressful if not prepared.

My Tips on How to Enjoy Thanksgiving Gluten-Free

  1. Communicate with those you are sharing Thanksgiving with to make sure there are gluten-free options. Communicate this is in a kind and well-mannered way.
  2. Bring plenty of your own gluten-free food for Thanksgiving Day.
  3. Make sure the gluten-free items you bring are items you KNOW you like to eat. It is not fun to be excited to try a new gluten-free product just to be disappointed. Make sure you know the items you choose are delicious and tasty.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gluten Free Meals For the Week

If you follow me you know that I not only eat gluten-free (celiacs disease), but that I also feel strongly about being prepped with meals for the week.

One of the hardest parts of being gluten-free is the fact that it’s not always convenient.
