Enjoy a Delicious Low Carb and Keto Thanksgiving
The holidays are tricky for those of us on diets - including me. Let's be honest, its totally frustrating because we just want to eat "normal" stuff, right? I typically spend the holidays falling off the wagon and then feeling guilty.
I am going to approach this holiday season with a new attitude. First, I am giving myself permission to sample various "non-diet" versions of tasty dishes. I am not going to eat a whole serving of it, however.
Second, I am going to set myself up for success by making these recipes which are great stand-ins for the original classics. Many of these recipes are BETTER than the original.
How great would it be to head into the holidays without feeling guilty and be able to satisfy those cravings?? Let's do it together! Check out these fantastic recipes and let me know how you like them, please! 🙂
