Low FODMAP Thanksgiving Recipes

Nov 19, 2016 | Misc, Resource

Woah, can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? I’m still not 100% used to the weather patterns here in Texas – it was 86 degrees a few days ago! – and while I absolutely love that, it has my brain still in summer / maaaaaybe fall mode, and I’m having trouble remembering that it is actually HOLIDAY SEASON. When did that happen?? We’ll be going up to the Great White North in a few days to celebrate with family though, so I have full confidence that I will be slapped with an icy-cold-blast-of-wind-to-the-face dose of reality that will remind me what time of year it is.

Anyway, I just wanted to stop in and wish a very happy Thanksgiving to everyone. This season, I’m doing my best to remember that, despite our differing views and the crazy/chaotic/sad things going on in the world, I have much to be thankful for.

And now for the food! I’ve never hosted a Thanksgiving, so I don’t have any miraculous turkey recipes to share (plus, if I ever did host, I’d do my best to get away with making pizza instead), but if you’re still looking for some low-FODMAP side dishes to bring, here are my favorites!


Be sure to read my tips for traveling and my tips for eating out, as well as my holiday survival guide! Nobody wants to feel miserable during this time of year.

Gluten free pumpkin pie from Alternative Baker – hands down the best gluten free pie crust. Ever.

Quick pumpkin soup

Gluten free cornbread (this is always a hit!)

Wheat free cinnamon rolls

Wheat free pizza dough (in case you have success convincing your family to have pizza instead of turkey. Invite me over?)

From around the web

Life changing gluten free biscuits – also from Alternative Baker, these look amazing!

Simple sweet potato fries – we usually do some roasted veggies, and I love that this recipe broils them at the end. Crispy sweet potatoes = heaven.

Kale cranberry walnut salad – this looks like a delicious way to add in some greens!

And, A Step-by-Step Guide to Drinking Wine at Thanksgiving because everyone gets along better with a glass of wine.

Low FODMAP Game Day Recipes

Writing this post right before lunch was perhaps not the best idea – now I’m getting hungrier and hungrier! But hey! What are your plans for the super bowl? I’m not a huge fan of football as a sport, but I am a fan of it as a social event. This goes all the way back to high school when I’d go to Friday night games to hang out with my friends, and when I got home my dad would ask me “who won?” and I’d be like “ummm…”
