A Thanksgiving Menu for Every Diet

September 23, 2019

Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Menu

It’s never been easier to have your favorite Thanksgiving dishes without the gluten! With classics like Green Bean Casserole or a colorful Purple Sweet Potato Pie made with a gluten-free twist, you can have a beautiful spread of dishes bursting with flavor. We recommend our Roasted and Braised Turkey as the centerpiece of your gluten-free table—plunged into a rich and savory broth after slow roasting, the result is meat that is fall-off-the-bone tender and infused with aromatics.

Keto Friendly Thanksgiving Menu

Looking for Keto dishes to bring to your family gathering, or just wanting to try out something different? We’ve got you covered! Try our Brussels Sprouts glazed with delicately sweet balsamic vinegar and topped with toasted walnuts for a satisfying side dish. Surprise your guests with Butternut Squash Gratin filled with creamy goat cheese or a delicious Berry Crisp dessert that’s easy to make and Keto-friendly too!

Paleo Friendly Thanksgiving Menu

We know that one of the highlights of holiday meals is dessert. Our friend Juli Bauer from PaleOMG has created a mouthwatering, Paleo-friendly Apple Pie Cookie Bar to please your sweet tooth and wow your friends and family. To complete your Thanksgiving feast, we’ve paired up delectable vegetable sides such as a spicy Curried Pumpkin Soup and Roasted Carrots with Carrot Top Pesto to go with our deliciously tender Roasted and Braised Turkey recipe.

Traditional Thanksgiving Menu

Looking for ideas to shake up your Thanksgiving feast? How about a “fix-it-and-forget-it” Southern classic side like our Sweet n’ Spicy Slow Cooker Greens? These greens need minimal attention, won’t take up valuable stove-top space, and allow the slow cooker to do the bulk of the work! While the greens are filling your kitchen with delicious smells, you can start on the Roasted and Braised Turkey for the star of your table or whip up dessert with a dozen creamy Pumpkin Custard Tartlets.

Vegan Thanksgiving Menu

Close your eyes, no, wait, keep reading… but imagine in your mind a typical Thanksgiving feast. Are you picturing a plethora of food and gathering with the ones you love? No matter what images come to mind, maybe it’s grandma’s signature pie or the days upon days of leftovers, we know that Thanksgiving is a very turkey-focused Holiday, which, if you’re a vegan or vegetarian, may have you feeling left out. It doesn’t have to anymore. Natural Grocers’ in-house Natural Food Chef, Karen Falbo has developed a fantastically flavorful vegan/vegetarian feast in conjunction with two vegan pioneers—a husband-and-wife team known as The Doctor & The Chef—to make your Holiday a fun and festive plant-based celebration.

From our family to yours, have a Happy and Delicious Thanksgiving!
