Thanksgiving is defined as “the expression of gratitude, especially to God.” New Oxford American Dictionary. Sadly, many in modern day America skip over this holiday of giving thanks. They hop from Halloween to Christmas.

The whole reason America celebrates Thanksgiving is that the Pilgrims celebrated the harvest of 1621 with the Wampanoag native Americans. The Pilgrims left Plymouth, England in search of a land where they could worship God freely without King James I of England penalizing and arresting them for not agreeing with the Church of England. They arrived in Plymouth, Massachusets in late 1620. The first winter was a miserable tragedy. Forty-five of the original 102 settlers died during the winter. By 1621, the survivors were desperate for a change in diet and they searched for an opportunity to give thanks to God. After partnering with the Wampanoag native Americans, the Pilgrims were able to give thanks to in late 1621.

Also, happy late National Bacon Day even though I’m not the biggest fan of bacon.

Welcome back to Back to School 2018 aka the time of year where people spend way too much money on school supplies, clothes, and tiny amounts of food packaged in off-white colored plastic containers that are overpriced aka lunchables. Why do tiny and unhealthy pieces of food cost so much? A lunchable literally costs $1.78! With a $1.78, I could buy all of the products for one of these recipes. Plus, almost all of the Lunchables are NOT gluten-free.

Anywho, some people don’t want to spend hours making snack packs that disappear into someone’s stomach in two seconds; so why don’t you make snack packs that  take 5 minutes to make, are healthy, and taste sensational. I have compiled a list of four gluten-free recipes for YOU so that this year is not too stressful.
