Tips for a Gluten-Free Thanksgiving and Safe Holiday Season

Celiac.com 10/25/2008 - With a bit of planning and knowledge anyone with celiac disease can enjoy a safe, gluten-free Thanksgiving and holiday season without the concern of accidental gluten ingestion.  If you plan to prepare your own gluten-free turkey dinner, here are some ideas that may be helpful:

  • A gluten-free holiday dinner starts with a gluten-free turkey. Believe it or not some brands of turkey do contain additives that are not gluten-free—so, like everything else, read the ingredients and use our Gluten-Free Ingredient Lists or our Gluten-Free Shopping Guides to help you shop.
  • Don’t risk gluten-based stuffing in your turkey.  Instead, try my favorite gluten-free stuffing recipe.
  • Gravy is easy: Use a gluten-free gravy mix, or a gluten-free gravy recipe.  Remember, bouillon cubes can often be a source of hidden gluten in holiday meals so be sure to use gluten-free bouillon cubes.  To thicken your homemade gravy you can use corn starch or arrowroot flour.
  • Gluten-free holiday side dishes are easy: Browse our extensive listing of gluten-free recipes to find side dishes that will impress anyone—celiac disease or not.

Thankyou for your advice i am getting so confused as some people are saying you dont need the biopsy and others are saying you do need it as it comes with other tests connected to thyroid, iron etc? just want to start being gluten free asap! did you go for the endoscopy?

Hello One drawback is that there are no guarantees. You may go through the testing process and not get the answer you want or need. I did go through testing after having been gluten free and was stunned when I was told it was negative. By that point I'd gone through the challenge and seen...
