Living with chronic illness and/or autoimmune conditions may mean that you’ve had to make some adjustments to your diet. And that leads to Thanksgiving looking a little differently than it has before. In this episode, Andrea talks all about how to navigate Thanksgiving while supporting your needs, advice for setting up boundaries, and even a little perspective shift.

Start making a list of the foods and treats you look forward for the holiday and then from that list, look for where you’re going to need to make some swaps and substitutions. This will help guide you for shopping lists and recipe searches.

Google what you’re looking for with keywords in front like, “Paleo” “Whole30” “Keto”. This will help you find alternative recipes for your favorite holidays foods.

Practice setting some boundaries. You can journal on this and write out some possible conversations that you are concerned about and write out your response. This will help you practice and prepare for the big day.
