Dairy Free Thanksgiving


I recently found out that my little lady has a dairy allergy! After doing tons of research, chatting with friends, & talking with her pediatrician, I’ve learned it’s actually pretty common in breastfed babies and that she will outgrow it in time.

In the meantime…I’m turned my diet upside down nixing dairy which is SO much harder than I thought it was going to be. {One positive side is that I’ve lost 2 pounds this week…woot! 😉 } I feel like dairy is in everything!

With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, it dawned on me that almost 100% of Thanksgiving dinner at my family’s is going to consist of some dairy, so I needed to quickly fend for myself and whip up a few side dishes that I can enjoy come Turkey day without feeling left out!

I’ve gathered some of the top recipes for dairy free Thanksgiving dishes and compiled together my favorites for you! Hoping to help other mamas & dairy free friends who are going to be struggling this holiday season!

PS- These are the dishes that I am actually going to be making! If you have any other suggestions I’d love to hear your recipe AND if you end up giving one of these a try let me know how you like it too! Comment below!
