If you have food allergies, sensitivities, intolerances, or dietary restrictions, it can make holidays, like Thanksgiving, difficult to navigate. Especially when others are preparing the food, you don’t have control over the food preparation. This can leave you feeling left out and even worse, hungry! No one likes to miss out on a fully dressed turkey with all the yummy sides.
If you’re invited to someone else’s house for Thanksgiving this year, make sure to let them know ahead of time about your dietary restrictions. Offer to bring a dish or two to ensure you have something to eat and to make it a bit easier on the host. And if you’re hosting? Luckily, you have complete control over all the ingredients going into your meal.
Just because you have food restrictions doesn’t mean you can’t dive into a delicious Thanksgiving dinner! Whether you’re gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegan, there’s something just for you. From turkey dressing to pumpkin desserts, here are our favorite allergy-friendly Thanksgiving recipes.
