Alright, I know we’ve already passed up Thanksgiving, but it’s not too early to start thinking about some healthier option for your Christmas dinner!
Traditionally, most people have ham or turkey for Christmas (at least in my family we do!) Turkey and ham are both carb free, however, to keep it that way do not use any sort of sugars to cook your meat it– this means no honey ham! We don’t need to really add any more sugar to the holiday season anyways, do we? 🙂
Here’s so recipes for low carb sides to go with your meal:
Instead of mashed potatoes, try mashed cauliflower
And top those off with this low carb gravy
Who doesn’t love green bean casserole? HERE’s an alternative recipe
We can’t forget the cranberry sauce!
And deviled eggs are always a great, low carb go to.
With THIS recipe, you can even enjoy rolls!
And don’t forget my broccoli salad recipe! I made this for Thanksgiving, and used dried cranberries instead of grapes. It was a huge hit!
For dessert, try out these– Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pecan Pie
And the Atkins diet website has some great recipes for low carb COOKIES, too!
It IS possible to enjoy the holiday season without worrying about gaining those dreaded extra pounds!
