It’s hard to believe, but Thanksgiving is coming up! If you’re still figuring out what you’re going to make for your own dinner or what to bring to a Friendsgiving or potluck Thanksgiving, don’t worry. I’ve got loads of ideas for you!
Let’s be real, the magic of a Thanksgiving meal is in the food around the protein, which is so fun and can be very easy to make. These are also easy to make to fit everyone’s dietary needs, too.
I’ve got a few dishes you can make for your Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, or Thursday night (if you’re not in the US). I’ve also listed dietary guidelines so you can easily see if it will fit for the people you’re serving. The key is below the list if you want some clarification. Some you can easily adapt to fit into other dietary needs (like removing beans to make something paleo, primal, or Whole 30).
I hope these recipes inspire you and get the wheels turning for what to make at your gathering. As always make your recipes your own, add in your favorite flavors and swap out things you don’t want to use.
Give yourself a bit of grace and love with this holiday. It’s so easy to get caught up in making your meal/house/table perfect and get away from real core of the holiday. How clean your whole meal is or how many slices of pumpkin pie you had doesn’t matter as much as the joy and connection you feel with yourself and others. Happiness is an essential part of your health, too.
