Ketogenic diets and low carb diets notoriously fall by the wayside during the holiday season, but at these times it is most important to stick to our convictions. Practicing restraint and self-control over the holiday season is a worthy endeavor that will help you carry momentum into the coming year, too.
Below we go over a few dishes you can bring to any holiday party and nosh on while staying true to your diet, that way you can continue to enjoy optimum results. That's what Optimal Health & Wellness Center is all about: educating our patients and readership about ways they can optimize their health and wellness.
Indonesian Chicken Drumsticks
Bring something cultural to the holiday table. Indonesian drumsticks will give you the protein you need and will provide an interesting distraction to your diet.
Roast Pork or Corned Beef
Since you need higher fat, lower carb Christmas recipes, these two options will serve as an alternative centerpiece to the traditional turkey and ham.
Side Option: Lemon Cream Artichokes or Deviled Eggs
Artichokes with mayonnaise or grass-fed butter are fine for your keto diet, not to mention deviled eggs, which have the protein you need. Add anchovies and rosemary to your deviled eggs for a nice kick.
