5 Steps to Enjoying Thanksgiving as a Celiac

1. Don’t
2. Focus
3. On
4. The
5. Food

So I was gonna do a “what I’m thankful for” post but I have so much to be thankful for, the list would be endless and you’d all either 1) be bored to tears or 2) hate my guts. So I passed.

Then I was going to do a “how to eat safely this Thanksgiving” post (I know…how original). But here’s the problem. That puts the focus on the food. And Thanksgiving, and heck all social gatherings, should really about WHO you are with, not WHAT you are eating. So no…there will be no gluten-free stuffing recipe here; no tips on cross-contamination or eating safely at someone else’s house. I figured most of you are (hopefully) pretty well-schooled on things like this. And if you are a newbie, I’ve got tons of words of wisdom on this site for you.

So my advice to you this Thanksgiving…even if you try it just this once…is enjoy yourself. Laugh. Drink. Talk. Play. Don’t worry about replicating what you used to eat. You’re not gonna die if you don’t have stuffing this year. Honestly. There is no written or unwritten rule about what you must eat on Thanksgiving.

So yeah…take precautions. Be diligent. Blah, blah, blah.

But be THANKFUL for the people you are with and if celiac disease is the worst thing you are dealing with this Thursday, give some serious thanks. It’s an ugly world out there.

Happy holidays everyone. I’m thankful for you all (I know…I said I wasn’t going to do that.)
