WOW, I’m SO excited to share this post today for 50 AMAZING healthy gluten free & vegan Thanksgiving recipe ideas! For obviously Thanksgiving day, & beyond! As someone who is both gluten free & vegan, I know first hand how difficult holiday eating can be! My goal for sharing this variety of healthy thanksgiving alternatives is to help you find options that you & your family can enjoy equally! It’s always amazing to feel supported by the people around you, & adjust classic holiday dishes towards more healthier options – so that no one feels left out!

In order to do so, I’ve gathered an amazing list of 50 Thanksgiving recipes that are ALL gluten free & vegan, so there is nothing to question! Just click on the recipe name to be directed to the recipe & instructions! There’s some incredible recipes included within this post – some that you wouldn’t even guess would meet the necessary criteria! Seriously, just keep scrolling! I’ve included gluten free & vegan recipe ideas for pumpkin pie, gravy, veggies, squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, stews, lentil loafs, & MORE!

What many people fail to realize about eating healthy, being vegan, or following a gluten free diet, is that there are SO many substitutions out there!

But I get it, it can be overwhelming!

I’m approaching my first holiday season being vegan. But I was diagnosed a few years back with Celiac, so this isn’t my first gluten free thanksgiving. With that said, I can surely understand how daunting the holiday season can seem for those who are new to a gluten free lifestyle. Combine the two together, being BOTH gluten free & vegan…is A LOT! Especially when we’re talking about major holidays, such as Thanksgiving & Christmas, which usually involves tons of gluten, dairy, & meat!

The last thing you want to feel like is the thought of being a burden, “high maintenance”, or worse – going hungry, while watching everyone else around you indulge! I’ve been there! For all three, I’ve definitely been there! My best advice is to plan ahead, explain to your family or those around you, why this way of eating is important or absolutely crucial for you, & find a happy medium. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think there’s one dish below that anyone would scoff their nose up at!

As I put this post together, another idea came to mind about ways to navigate the holiday season while still remaining healthy, honoring your food choices, & learning the best ways to indulge, without guilt! So hopefully I can get that post up & running soon – because I think everyone could maybe be in need of a gentle reminder!

But without further adue, below is an incredible roundup of 50 healthy recipes that will be certain to please everyone – gluten & meat eaters too!
