Many families are sadly wasteful in the United States, so today I am going to be writing an article with gluten free turkey soup recipes for after Thanksgiving. When I was a boy my mother would aways create some new tasty meals with our leftover turkey, and one of the easiest and healthiest meals is soups this time of the year. Another thing I like to do is add it to my salads for a change, I usually add chicken or steak so this is something new I seldom do any other time of the year.
After Thanksgiving Leftover Tips
Many people have the fear of food poisoning by eating leftover holiday meals, but with this guide, you can stay safe and yet not waste food. There are children and families who have no idea where their next meal is coming from, and yet the people in the USA are throwing away food regularly. So if fear is the reason for this, you now can learn food safety tips from this article, and let us see how we can be safe without wasting valuable food.
- You should freeze your leftovers within 3 days, but I will freeze mine as soon as possible when I know I will not be using them right away.
- Even though you can be sure your frozen leftovers will be safe for almost forever, you are best to use them within 3 months for their best flavor.
- Never refreeze more than one time, and the way I am sure to not waste any food is to freeze them in small individual portions.
- Labeling is something I have learned to be very valuable for me, I often prepare a full slow cooker of my favorite soup, and then freeze it. Simply by using masking tape and a waterproof marker, you can label as you freeze your leftovers, and this works great for gluten free turkey soup recipes.
- I prefer freezer bags myself, but you also can use containers. Being a single person this allows me to store more, and every time I cook I prepare a super big batch.
So these are some tips that I use myself to store my own food for another day, and I purposely prepare my slow cooker full as I possibly can with the intention of freezing the extra for another day.
Turkey Soup Recipe Ideas
My grandmother was the most creative cook I have ever met, and it is a shame she never wrote all her recipes down. I would never have imagined there were so many ways you could prepare turkey soup, but amazingly every time she did it tasted unique. I guess some of us have a natural talent for being creative cooks, and some of us must depend on recipes. I am one of those who needs recipe ideas, and so here are some I found for you while writing this article.
- Avgolemono Turkey Soup
- Simple Turkey Soup
- Turkey and Chicken Soup
- Turkey Taco
- Turkey Noodle
- Crockpot Turkey Soup
Of course, you can guess the crockpot soup would interest me the most, and that is because I can just throw in the ingredients and my part is done. By the way, you can be sure all of the recipes above are gluten-free.
Thanksgiving Bible Verses
Instead of sharing prayers with you as I usually do, I thought for a change I would share some bible verses for Thanksgiving. I am not a super religious person by any means, but like inspirational quotes, you can learn and be motivated by reading bible verses. If Free Family Solutions is benefitting you please feel free to leave me a comment, I really would love to hear from you.
Daniel 6:10 – Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.
1 Chronicle 16:34 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
Psalm 95:2 Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
Assistance For Families
With the COVID many families are struggling for Thanksgiving, and I am disappointed President Trump stopped the stimulus for the holidays.

Anyway, I have some assistance programs that you might be able to get some help if you are interested, and I am praying for all of you.

For years I had to give up ice cream because none of the brands at Walmart were free of gluten, but now there are more to choose from than many of you might realize. How many of you would love a dish of creamy ice cream for dessert after your Thanksgiving meal, and for those of you who love ice cream as much as I do check the list below.

Now you also can enjoy a nice dish of your favorite ice cream, and these are the brands I have found that are gluten-free. I am sure there are more than the ones on my list above, but if you want to be safe I know for a fact these are safe for you to enjoy. Just be careful, you have to be sure you don’t buy the regular ice cream by mistake as I had done in the past.
What Are The Best Gluten-Free Brands
For those of you who might not be familiar with the brands available, I thought it would be helpful for me to share some of the ones I have bought and used myself. You will find some are not as good as others, but much of it depends on your own personal taste. So here are some that I suggest you consider, and I would love to know which of these you like the best.

These are not all the better brands available on the market, but these are the ones that I have tried and buy the most for my own use. You can try them and see which of them appeals the most to you, and explore with others as you find them. I have bought these from Amazon, Walmart, and Aldi’s, so these are three places I have found the most reasonable prices.
