Ketology Thanksgiving: Low Carb Thanksgiving Recipes from Starters to Cocktails

I have two favorite holidays – Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve and Day (ok, so I suppose that’s three). I have hosted Thanksgiving Dinner for family and friends for decades now, pretty much making the entire meal because I enjoy it so much. I always have plenty of help in the kitchen between family and friends, and the ritual of making the meal is just as fun and festive as when we sit down to eat.

I love spending the day prepping, sipping on wine and chatting with everyone as they gather and nosh on appetizers and watch football, play board games and tell stories. And then we feast! I’ve included the individual recipes for this year’s menu below if you prefer looking at them online, or you can download them all in my free eBook using the button below!

Each year since I started my keto journey, I have slowly started incorporating low carb Thanksgiving recipes into the mix, either just for me or that everyone can enjoy that aren’t obviously low carb, like creamed spinach and my creamy brussels sprouts casserole which are a hit with everyone.

While I’ll still make some classic, non-keto recipes, this year’s keto Thanksgiving menu will feature the widest array of keto recipes — because so many more members of my close circle have either joined me whole-heartedly on the keto lifestyle – including my two teenage sons have cut out refined sugar – and because I’ve come up with new recipes that keep it low carb but are packed with flavor!

Here’s what’s on my menu and all the recipes are also in my free eBook that you can download using the button below:
