Low FODMAP Thanksgiving Recipes
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!
Gluten free pumpkin pie from Alternative Baker – hands down the best gluten free pie crust. Ever.
Gluten free cornbread (this is always a hit!)
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.

Like I mentioned when we talked about almond sauce, after years of avoiding sauces, I’ve been on a sauce kick lately. Call it desperation, but after essentially “figuring out” what I can & can’t eat on the low FODMAP diet, I’ve basically been sticking to those foods…
Someday I’ll do a travel guide for Austin – considering I live here it’s almost embarassing that I haven’t done one yet – but until I get my act together I’ll tell you the one place you MUST go if you’re in Austin: Via 313 Pizza…
So, I started a low FODMAP guide to Spain last week, which I’m really excited about, but considering I’m still not done (and may have decided halfway through to re-structure everything)… I figured I’d share a Spain-inspired recipe instead. Otherwise it’ll end up being weeks before I post anything…
