I published our very first gluten free dairy free holiday meal plan back in 2017, and that post that was very popular.

When 2019 rolled around, I received requests for another holiday meal plan. So, another was created, complete with a grocery shopping list and printable recipe ebook.

Call me kind-hearted (really, I don’t mind!) but as much work as it takes to put these together, I’m doing it for you again. Y’all, it took a village to put this year’s meal plan together (an entire team of 4 amazing women!).

SO, I hope you will find it useful and make some of these recipes!


Scroll down and you’ll see a link to each recipe, along with a little bit about it. Then, at the bottom of the post, you can print out the grocery list.

In a few days, you will ALSO have access to a PDF ebook, with individual recipe ingredients listed. There will also be links to click so you can get the recipe instructions.

The PDF file will be ready in a few days. If you’re interested in signing up to get a FREE copy when it becomes available, please email team (at)

EASY PEASY and SO convenient to have them all in one place, am I right?

Are you ready to get hungry? Let’s do this!
