  1. Sounds delicious! I follow the Gaps & AIP diet because I have so many food allergies I can’t follow just one or it is so restrictive! I followed strict Gaps for a long time in effort to heal my gut. I am allergic to so many foods you have listed which is making my Thanksgiving ideas so hard – it can be so emotional going to family gatherings where there is so much food that I can’t eat! I am used to bringing my food – but after this recent food allergy test it has narrowed my limited list of foods down even more. I am allergic to squashes, coconut, dairy, eggs, cauliflower, broccoli, nuts, seeds, tomatoes and so much more! Any ideas?!

  2. Hi Lauren!
    This looks amazing!! Thanks for sharing. I was wondering if you could fix the link for the maple stuffed sweet potatoes? It doesn’t seem to allow me to click to get the recipe 🙂 Thanks so much!

  3. This is also my 5th grain-free/real food/etc. Thanksgiving (I’ll occasionally try some sourdough gluten-free breads). Funny how I don’t even think about being wise or weathered about it anymore; it’s just the way it is. I’ve been following your blog pretty much since its beginning (is it possible I even made Thanksgiving recipes from it that first year?! I certainly have other years) and I love to see how its grown and still find posts that are meaningful for me. Happy Thanksgiving!
