The Thanksgiving season is finally here, and I couldn't be happier. Not only am I excited about all of the time that I'll be spending with my family during the highly anticipated holiday, but I'm excited for all of the delicious food to fill up on, too. What's even better is the fact that my sister and brother-in-law have decided to stay in town, so my niece will be around. Because of this though, making sure there are some gluten-free Thanksgiving dishes on the menu will be a plus since my sister has been straying more towards a gluten-free diet for my precious niece.
At first, I didn't understand why she decided to switch my niece to gluten-free food. That is, until she told me my niece was developing a gluten allergy. It's become super important to my family that there are gluten-free options around for my niece and, in turn, we've all started to watch our gluten intake, too. Although I wasn't aware that there were so many tasty gluten-free options available, I now know that you can even eat some of your favorite meals because they don't include gluten, either.
If you're not sure what type of gluten-free dishes you can include as a part of your Thanksgiving menu, these eight dishes will help get you started.
