Enjoy a low-carb holiday season with these inspiring recipes. Take a step away from the yams and pecan pies and embrace this time of cheer with healthy, low-carb holiday dishes perfect for your keto diet.
The holiday season is no reason to stop your healthy diet. Having family over and being around all the hustle and bustle is exciting enough, you do not need to be stressing about food! Learn how to think outside of the box of carb laden holiday dishes.
If you choose to follow a ketogenic diet, gravies, stuffings, glazes and bready desserts do not pave the road for optimal health. Explore past the potatoes, eat more than just beef and chicken. Embrace the opportunity to discover a new way of looking at “holiday” food and find a way to celebrate without the sugar-coma. Fuel your food with a new intention – food is medicine! Your passion for health will be evident in your food and may even encourage others to think for thoroughly about their dietary decisions.
Stay focused on what you want to achieve and use your willpower to help your dreams come true. I have compiled a list of low-carb holiday recipes that will serve well for any nourishing and joyous holiday celebration.
Many of these recipes come from blogs that do not specifically focus on low-carb recipes, goes to show you can always find keto recipes anywhere. Happy virtual (and real) feasting!
