Did you know that gluten-free stuffing options for Thanksgiving 2019 are available at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and ALDI right now? That’s right—you need to run (not walk) over there right now to prepare for Thanksgiving.

Traditional Thanksgiving meals tend to be loaded with gluten-containing foods: turkey with stuffing, turkey gravy, cornbread/bread rolls, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie. It can feel like you can’t have anything gluten-free to eat on Thanksgiving.

The good news is that there’s been quite a lot of innovation in gluten-free products over the years. And it has become a lot easier to find gluten-free alternatives for traditional food items.

One of the most popular Thanksgiving meals is turkey with stuffing. Unfortunately, those leading a gluten-free lifestyle can’t eat a turkey with traditional stuffing. Yet, you can still create a safe delicious Thanksgiving meal to accommodate those leading a gluten-free lifestyle.

In this article, I’ll discuss steps for creating a safe delicious meal with gluten-free stuffing. And I’ll share the brands, prices (reflects Ann Arbor, MI location), and ingredients of gluten-free stuffing available at Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and ALDI .
