Over 40 recipes for a GAPS Thanksgiving, including appetizers, beverages, main dish, stuffing, sides, salads, soups, rolls, sauces, dips, and desserts. Follow Me on Pinterest

This year we are hosting most of my siblings for Thanksgiving. Based on past experience, the house will be a cacophony of 9 kids, 1 cat & 3 dogs.

To my dear neighbors, consider this advance warning.

Growing up, Thanksgiving traditions were somewhat optional in my family. We never did the same thing twice, but Thanksgiving was likely to be spent with someone who didn’t have family, or with friends we really cared about and enjoyed.

Now that the Christners have permanently settled in Vermont (dubbed the vacation spot by some family members) we are happy to have a houseful…as well as feed them a GAPS Thanksgiving feast. My siblings are usually game for our eating adventures, which makes it doubly enjoyable. Here is a list of choices I made, including GAPS appetizers, beverages, main dish, stuffing, side dishes, salads, soups, rolls/muffins, sauces/dips, desserts, and even leftovers:
