Experience Of Removing Gluten From Diet

In the first couple of years after deciding to remove gluten from my diet, I felt very much like a lost sheep. I kept hearing friends talk about having a gluten-free dinner for Thanksgiving, and I didn’t know what to say. Remember in the beginning of our new journey to a gluten-free living? After having gone gluten-free during the past several years, I can honestly say that the biggest question on my mind during my Thanksgiving preparation was whether my friends would like my gluten-free pie recipe.

When I first became gluten-free, I was worried that I would never be able to recreate some of my childhood favorites that had been made with flour and sugar. I couldn’t imagine eating the same turkey and pumpkin pie that I had as a child again. But once I had a taste of my new diet, I was totally happy to know that I could easily recreate some of my fond memories of childhood. One of those memories is pumpkin pie, and as much as I wanted to give up the pumpkin pie for good, I couldn’t. It was something that I couldn’t live without, and once I had experienced it for myself, I decided that I would make pumpkin pie every year for my whole family to enjoy!

Making The Pumpkin Pie From Different Recipes

When preparing pumpkin pie, you can have either traditional or organic ingredients. If you want to add a little bit of your loved ones and friends to the meal, then you can add in your favorite spices, including cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and cardamom. As far as the crust, then the traditional version of pumpkin pie includes a mixture of pecan, dates, and raisins. While this may seem like a bit of a hassle, adding in some nuts, raisins, and dates does wonders for the flavor. You can also add in some berries, nuts, raisins, and dates.

Other than baking it at home and making it at home, there are other things that you can do to make your own special recipe. Gluten free cookies can be made from ingredients that are available in your local supermarkets, such as oats, brown rice flour, and rice powder.

Another great idea is to bake apple crisps. These apple crisps can consist of apple, apricot, coconut and almond butter. If you choose apples, then you can add in cranberries, banana, and even raisins to give your apple crisps a bit of a natural twist. If you are having trouble finding these items locally, then you can buy them online.

Gluten free desserts for turkey should not only include fruits and vegetables, but you can also have some protein as well. Chicken fried steak is another popular choice, and there are many recipes that call for chicken breast. To prepare this, cook the steak in a pan with olive oil until it is almost black.

Summing Up

When you are preparing your traditional turkey dinner, then instead of using traditional turkey gravy, you can use a flavored chicken broth. In order to keep the gravy in line with the flavor of the actual turkey, then you can add Rosemary or thyme sprigs into the gravy as well. If you want to add a touch of your family’s tradition to the meal, you can even add in bay leaves, cumin, or even dried chilies to your gravy. This will definitely make your dinner stand out.
