HOW TO SURVIVE A KETO THANKSGIVING

Are you still planning what to cook for Thanksgiving this year? What might fit well in with your ketogenic diet, keep you in ketosis and be enjoyable enough? Stop stressing out because I have the best tips & low carb sugar-free recipes: everything from appetizers to main meals and even keto desserts. Here’s how to have a low carb Thanksgiving:

  1. Keep your meals simple – When you know what you can eat, you’re one step ahead! Stick to protein – there will be plenty of turkey-based meals, chose a vegetable side, and be careful of sauces and dressing as the classic ones are loaded with sugar and other high-carb ingredients. Below you’ll find a recipe for sugar-free cranberry sauce and a delicious keto gravy sauce!
  2. Make you Keto Thanksgiving Meal Plan ahead – Don’t until the last minute to meal plan and go shopping; it’s super stressful. 
  3. Bring dessert with you – Most Thanksgiving desserts are not keto-friendly, so your next best option is to bring a homemade keto dessert to your host so you can enjoy freely. You can find tons of keto-approved desserts in my Keto For Holidays Ebook. 

EXCELLENT KETO THANKSGIVING RECIPES TO TRY THIS 2021!

If you’re not sure what keto-friendly dishes to make for your Thanksgiving dinner, then I’m sure you’ll love these ideas. It’s time to get the holiday’s spirit going and start cooking delicious recipes that are sugar-free and low carb. 

You can start by making a batch of pumpkin pie spice and learn how to make keto pumpkin puree.
