30 Thanksgiving sweet and savory recipes (gluten-free, with some vegan and paleo options)

by purelytwins

Happy Friday luvs,

Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner we thought we share our favorite recipes that would be perfect to make for you and your loved ones.

We are so excited to be with our family and close friends. We can’t wait to get in the kitchen. Usually we don’t really like people in the kitchen with us, but during the holidays we love the extra help. Nothing like family bonding over chopping, stirring, blending, mixing, and cleaning dishes.  We have a joke in our family… whenever the kitchen is a mess… the twins must be in town 😉

30 Thanksgiving gluten-free sweet and savory recipes with some vegan, raw and paleo friendly options.

Expect to see some of these recipes show up at our Thanksgiving day table 🙂  Hopefully you can find something to inspire you to try this year!
