Low-carb or keto sides and sauces for ThanksgivingRemember that side dishes will likely be your biggest source of carbs and fat. If you’re planning to indulge in a low-carb or keto Thanksgiving dessert, be sure to keep side portions small to save a few carbs for later.
With that in mind, select some lower-carb side dishes to enjoy.
Instead of potatoes, consider a luscious, creamy browned butter cauliflower mash, with fantastic flavors provided by caramelized onion and cheddar cheese.
The cranberry sauce on our menu is made without added sugar. The tartness of the cranberries is balanced by the natural sweetness of unsweetened apple sauce or freshly grated apple, complementing heartier dishes perfectly.
Thinking this sounds a lot like a traditional Thanksgiving menu? You’re right! And that is our most important message. Eat real food and avoid highly processed, overly refined, high-carb foods while celebrating — and you’ll be good to go.
Regardless of your family favorites, you’re sure to find delicious alternatives here. Some may be similar in nature, but all will be low carb or keto.
