Happy Thanksgiving!! Today we all look at what we are thankful about, our friends, family, and the delicious meal we get to share with those closest to us. But are you grateful to be gluten free? Everyone has something they struggle with but we all know that to make them not only stronger but a part of who they are. If you weren’t gluten free or didn’t have Celiac Desease would you be the same person?
You have been challenged to live so differently from the rest of the world and although it is exhausting sometimes, it has made how you live each day. I think the things we struggle with the most are some of the things we should be most thankful for- they are what test our personalities and relationships. Over this thanksgiving will your family be making a gluten free stuffing dish for you? Maybe they will even all go completely gluten free for you! That is something beautiful to be grateful for:)
To help make things easier for you and your family we have been posting recipes all week on our Thanksgiving recipe tab and would be honored if you used them today! If you need any help feel free to post on our Facebook wall! We want to make this as fun and calm day as possible for you and your friends, along with some advice here is a warming holiday drink that will be a crowd pleaser!
