Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello, all —

Thanksgiving is the most food-centric holiday of the year. To that end, there’s a lot of stressing about food — what to make, how traditional should everything be, and what do you do about Great-Aunt Mabel who refuses to eat anything you have to chew, because her dentures don’t fit correctly?

I can’t promise to have all of the answers to these questions, but I do have a pretty large collection of Thanksgiving recipes that are gluten-free, mostly Paleo, and even a few that are vegan. I’m sure you’ll find something to suit everyone in the following list, including Great-Aunt Mabel.

(I do apologize for the quality of some of these pictures! They are pretty old, and I hadn’t yet grasped the importance of natural light and, you know, attractive food photos. I am in the process of trying to replace many of these.)
