Guacamole (gluten-free, vegan, Whole30, Paleo)

My favorite dip/appetizer/topping for just about anything is, hands-down, guacamole. Any time we have food days at work or I need to bring a side dish to an event, I will always go for a big batch of guac with some chips alongside. It's kinda my thing.

Brussels Sprouts, Pear and Candied Pecan Salad {dairy + gluten free}

It's not too late to add another yummy side dish to your Thanksgiving menu. Light and full of flavor, this salad is filled with fall flavors like pear and candied pecans. I've been enjoying this salad as a main dish for lunch the past few days and it is so good!

Overnight Mashed Potatoes {gluten free + vegan}

Thanksgiving is officially two days away. I would imagine most of you already have your menu planned, if you are doing the cooking. But if you're at all like me, I often find myself scrambling to throw things together at the last minute. I also like to put a spin on traditional recipes whenever possible. This recipe solves both of those issues for me.

Creamy "Ranch" Pasta Salad {vegan + gluten free} and 21 Days Dairy Free!

After the holidays have passed, I always have great plans to eat healthier, quit all of the bad eating habits I developed from Halloween through New Year's, and maybe even lose some weight. While I've cut dairy from my diet on multiple occasions and felt immensely better than before, it always seems to be the hardest diet change for me to stick with unless it's out of necessity (like when I was nursing my firstborn and because of his milk allergy). I have had no problem cutting gluten for over three years, avoiding any fast food for a long time, and not drinking soda for almost three years.

While I've fallen off the no-soda-drinking wagon, the others are still no problem for me. But if I'm being honest with you (and with myself), I don't feel my best when I'm not keeping a handle on my eating habits. I can think of all of the excuses in the world ("I'm nursing so I need the extra calories," is my favorite one currently...) but I know that if I just commit to the change and focus on making a healthy diet a priority, I won't regret it. 

What is one of the key pieces to making a change and sticking with it? Having someone to hold you accountable, of course! My friends at So Delicious Dairy Free have created the So Delicious Dairy Free 21 Day Dairy-Free Challenge Group on Facebook to help those of us who need it find support and recipes on our quest to maintain a dairy-free diet. They are even giving away prizes such as gift cards, food kits, and a trip for 2 to Boulder, Colorado to meet with health and fitness expert John Pierre - who wouldn't love to win that?!

The 21-Day Dairy-Free Challenge with So Delicious begins January 21 and goes through February 10, 2016, but you can go ahead and join the Facebook group and get started now. What is so beneficial about going dairy-free? Here are the Top Reasons People Go Dairy Free. Also, over on Instagram, for every photo of a dairy-free meal or snack uploaded with #DairyFree4Good during the official challenge dates, So Delicious Dairy Free will donate $1 to the Farm Sanctuary (up to $10,000; limit 3 entries per person per day).

Want more dairy-free recipe ideas? Download the Free Snackable eBook from Go Dairy Free for 25 Dairy-Free, Plant-Based, Gluten-Free Recipes to Inspire Healthy Eats for the Dairy-Free Challenge. It’s available for free on Kindle, iTunes, Kobo, and via PDF.

Cornbread Muffins {gluten free + vegan}

During the cooler months, one of our favorite meals is chili. I make a huge batch and cook it all day in the slow cooker. These Cornbread Muffins are the perfect side dish. Actually, they are perfect for a side with just about anything! I also happen to love them for breakfast, drizzled with a bit of maple syrup. Just thinking about it now...I'm going to have to make another batch!

Spinach Artichoke Dip {gluten free + vegan}

I have always been a fan of spinach artichoke dip. Warm, gooey and cheesy, it is a delicious appetizer or perfect compliment to grilled or baked chicken. I have enjoyed the traditional version since my son's milk allergy diagnosis, but have anxiety any time I eat something that contains his allergen. Plus, I recently decided to cut dairy out of my diet again, so this dairy-free version is a fantastic substitute.

Some of my favorite, go-to brands make an appearance in the recipe too: So Delicious Dairy Free (culinary coconut milk), Go Veggie Foods (vegan Parmesan style topping), and Just Mayo (egg-free mayonnaise). If you have a favorite dairy-free cheese alternative that does not contain soy, feel free to replace the Parmesan with what works for you.

Sweet & Savory Mashed Sweet Potato Bake {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #vegan #mashed_potatoes #thanksgiving #recipes

Mashed potatoes were always present at Thanksgiving meals when I was growing up. While I still think they are delicious and make dairy-free versions of my own on occasion, and the boys really like them, we also happen to love sweet potatoes. For this Thanksgiving, I wanted to create something sweet and savory with the decadence only sweet potatoes can provide. My Sweet & Savory Mashed Sweet Potato Bake makes a perfect side dish for any feast!

Green Bean Casserole {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #vegan #sides #Thanksgiving

I don't know that I have ever really liked green bean casserole. I remember it being on the table every Thanksgiving, but I do not recall every actually trying it. Having a child with a severe milk allergy and avoiding gluten and dairy myself the past few years, the occasion to try it recently just has not come up.

Herb Stuffing {gluten free + vegan}

My Herb Stuffing recipe was my absolute favorite part of our Thanksgiving meal last year. I was pretty excited to make it again this year. As if it wasn't simple enough already, I have found that it can easily be made in advance and refrigerated until ready to bake in order to save some time during the hectic holiday.

Battered Onion Rings {gluten free + vegan}

When I made my dairy- & gluten-free battered fish tacos, I stated in the recipe that you could also use the batter for onion rings. Here is how! Obviously they're not the healthiest food around but sometimes it is nice to be able to indulge in a special treat!

Broccoli Salad {gluten free + vegan}

#glutenfree #dairyfree #eggfree #soyfree #simple #vegetable #sidedishes

One of my favorite things to do during the summer is grilling out with friends. Of course, tons of food is always involved. I love to lighted things up with a cold summer veggie salad. This dressing is one of my favorites as well. It is perfectly sweet and tangy, creamy and delicious. It is amazingly versatile too. You can use just broccoli and onion, or add other vegetables like cold peas, cauliflower, or cherry tomatoes. Topping with cooked, crumbled bacon, or shredded dairy-free or regular cheese before serving would be delicious too!
