If you’re unfamiliar with a keto diet, here’s the quick explanation: It’s extremely low in carbohydrates and high in fat. Meat, including turkey with skin, is fine to consume, but other Thanksgiving staples aren’t. Mashed potatoes are off limits, along with bread stuffing, rolls, sugary cranberry sauce and desserts.
According to the Calorie Control Council, the typical Thanksgiving meal comes in around 3,000 calories. The council also estimates another 1,500 for appetizers and beverages. According to a post on www.type2diabetes.com, if 50 percent of those 4,500 calories come from carbohydrates, that’s more than 550 grams at one meal
So here are some ways to help during the holiday:
KETO APPETIZERS & COCKTAILS
Do you start your festivities off with appetizers and a beverage? These sugar-free cocktails and keto snacks will keep your party humming along in a healthy fashion.
KETO STUFFING RECIPES
The best part of any Thanksgiving meal is the stuffing. And yes, there is such a thing as keto stuffing. All the best recipes are right here!
KETO THANKSGIVING SIDES
Non-starchy veggies make tasty low carb holiday side dishes. Think Brussels sprouts, spaghetti squash, cauliflower, and green beans for healthy keto side dishes.
KETO BREADS & BISCUITS
Low carb cornbread? Yep! Except it really isn’t made with any corn at all. Coconut flour has a surprisingly corn-like flavour when baked into muffins and skillets. If you have my book, The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen, check out the skillet cornbread recipe on p. 118. It’s divine!
Cheesy Skillet Bread – apparently I have a thing for cheesy bread over the holidays!
