thanksgiving leftover cranberry soupThe holidays are fast upon us, and not only do we have to plan the Thanksgiving meal, but the Thanksgiving leftovers as well. Usually in my house there are lots of turkey and maybe some potatoes, the stuffing is almost always the first thing to go. But after so long, cold turkey sandwiches and turkey and gravy tend to get a bit bland. I came up with this recipe last year when all I had left after the dust has settled was turkey, enjoy!

gluten free sweet potato souffle

This is a great way to start the day on a sweeter note, without the sugars found in more traditional sweet morning fare—something that works great for those following a gluten-free–and even grain-free–lifestyle. It is packed with fiber, Vitamin A, protein and healthy fat. Use sweet potatoes or winter squash that has been pre-cooked to make preparation fast and easy–there should be plenty on hand, either before or after a Thanksgiving feast!  This is a dish that pleases young and old alike.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

• 1 cup cooked Sweet Potatoes or Winter Squash, skins removed

• 2-3 raw Eggs

• ½ cup unsweetened Almond Milk or Coconut Milk

• ½ tsp. ground Nutmeg

• ½ tsp. ground Cinnamon

• 1 tsp. Vanilla extract (more…)

gluten free cranberry sauceIt’s easy to make your own fresh cranberry sauce with just a few ingredients. This version has much less sugar than what you would find in a can. Give it a try.

Gluten-Free Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I look forward to the holiday season – visiting family, friends, the exchanging of gifts. And of course there’s the food. When you aren’t hosting your own thanksgiving, it can be stressful to make sure you aren’t getting any gluten in your diet.

I had to call my boyfriend’s aunt to make sure that the turkey was okay for me to eat, and ask about other side dishes being made. But when it comes to dessert, I don’t expect everyone to cater to me, so I will be bringing my own this year.  Normally I make a pie or cake or some sort.  This year, I’m making a simple but delicious favorite: chocolate chip cookies.

These cookies are good for those who are on a gluten free diet or even those following a paleo lifestyle. Most paleo peeps don’t eat grains or (more…)

Making Thanksgiving a Welcoming Meal for a Celiac Guest

gluten free thanksgiving partyThanksgiving can be the most depressing holiday for a celiac. It’s a whole day that centers around food. And no one wants to feel left out of the festivities. Part of being a celiac isn’t just the food, it’s the psychology of standing out in a crowd. I’ve found that I hate being pegged with the “special meal.” I want to fit in and eat the same food as everyone else. Thus, the most comforting thing for me is being invited to the home of someone who is aware of the simple steps that can be taken to make a gluten-free Thanksgiving that’s delicious for everyone.

It’s not necessarily about making gluten-free alternatives of “regular” food. It’s about finding regular food that happens to be gluten-free. You don’t need to spend a fortune at a specialty grocery store; most of (more…)

With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching,I have been itching to find ways to eat the leftover turkey.

Gluten-Free Mango Cashew Cornbread Stuffing

November 17th, 2011 by Cristi Comes

We discovered during the past year that my 4-year-old son Ronin and my 21-month-old daughter Ellie are both gluten and dairy intolerant. My husband John is gluten-free too. The good news is that changing Ronin’s diet has helped his anxiety-related sleep issues decrease immensely. He used to have night terrors every night, but now only has them on the rare occasions we miss cutting out the gluten.

Since John has been gluten free for a while, I came up with this stuffing recipe a few years ago for Thanksgiving. And its always been a huge hit. This year I’ve modified it to also remove the dairy for the kiddos.

It. is. SO. Yum. If I do say so myself!
