Living with celiac disease means gluten is your enemy. There is a social stigma that gluten free individuals chose to live that lifestyle by choice. Unfortunately that is not the case for most sufferers. Gluten intolerance and allergies are serious conditions that require careful nutrition and diet planning. There are many hidden ingredients on packages and you must be very careful. We scoured the web for gluten-free Thanksgiving recipes to come up with a full menu. These dishes are all gluten free and offer alternatives to your favorite Thanksgiving dishes. Try these new copies of your classic recipes!

1. The Turkey. No Thanksgiving would be complete without a turkey! While you might think this ingredient is gluten free, there are some hidden secrets to this bird. Many frozen store bought turkeys are injected with liquids including gluten products. That assures they thaw properly and turn out moist. Instead of buying frozen, try to buy a free range turkey that is fresh. This saves the meat from being injected with gluten and you get a fresher bird.

2. The Stuffing. The best dish of the evening is always the stuffing. We like to keep it outside of the bird for health reasons. The traditional stuffing is made with bread, but fear not! Stuffing is a great gluten-free dish if made with smart choices. We love this gluten-free cornbread stuffing that can be made far in advanced.

3. The Gravy. To top off your stuffing and turkey, gravy is the favorite choice. The powdered gravy mixes usually contain wheat flour, so steer clear! We found a brilliant gluten-free herb gravy that is naturally thickened with onion. Brilliant!

4. Green Bean Casserole. This classic Thanksgiving favorite is loved across the country. Green beans are brought to life with creamy dressing and crunchy onion bits. Unfortunately, it usually uses canned soup for the sauce and this can have gluten in it. We think this gluten-free green bean casserole recipe is great because it has all the parts of the classic dish.

5. Dinner Rolls. Having fresh baked buns at Thanksgiving is to die for. Making them gluten-free and still delicious can be a challenge. This gluten-free dinner roll recipe has a unique flour mix that tastes great and is easy to make.

6. Pumpkin Pie. To finish the meal there is nothing better than a pumpkin pie. The crust is traditionally made with flour and there are many pumpkin mousse recipes out there. We like a proper crust so this gluten-free ginger cookie crust pumpkin pie is perfect.
