Wheat & gluten free Thanksgiving
It's Thanksgiving. Traditionally a time for family and turkey with all the trimmings. But what about a wheat free or gluten free Thanksgiving? Do you have to miss out because you have a wheat allergy or intolerance, or are a coeliac?
No. Everything for a traditional Thanksgiving lunch or dinner can be reproduced in a wheat or gluten free version. Nobody needs to miss out, and nobody will know the difference (if you don't tell them).

* always check ingredients, manufacturers do change recipes without telling consumers, so don't assume the item you bought to eat last month will have the same ingredients this month, it may not.
