My husband and I are very untraditional people when it comes to celebrating the holidays. We like to do things differently. For the first 8 years of our relationship we didn’t even put up a Christmas tree! It’s no surprise that our Thanksgiving every single year is totally different. Since we have been on our low carb journey we decided to keep with that theme for our big meal on Thursday. Here is my menu.
Roasted whole chicken. I do not feel like making a huge turkey this year since it’s only the two of us. I will roast the chicken with just some garlic, ginger, lemon, onions, and extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, and sage on the skin.
Cauliflower cheesy rice but this time loaded with ranch, bacon pieces, and cheddar cheese.
Here is the original recipe- https://gracegothealthy.com/2013/07/12/cheesy-cauliflower-rice/
Steamed green beans. I love how simple and sweet they taste.
Deviled eggs. I don’t have a recipe for these. I just wing them.
Jalapeno Poppers. I will be following this recipe-
Caprese salad. So simple. Just fresh tomato, mozzarella, and basil all layered and stacked topped with extra virgin olive oil, and balsamic vinegar.
The dessert I chose is to honor my husband. He loves peanut butter cups so we are going to have these-
That’s it! I am excited because we will be able to eat lots of yummy foods and still stay in ketosis land 🙂
Low carb has been working out really well for us so far! Onward.
