Happy low-carb and keto Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving turkey with all the trimmings

Our delicious turkey, juicy and flavorful from cooking in oranges and sage butter, makes for both a filling meal and a beautiful centerpiece. Serve with gravy made from the juices collected when roasting the bird and our low-carb stuffing made with low-carb bread.

More delicious Thanksgiving recipes

It wouldn’t be a proper Thanksgiving without a luscious and creamy mash on the table. We suggest our browned butter cauliflower mash, with fantastic flavors provided by caramelized onion and cheddar cheese.

On the subject of side dishes, how about some crunchy green beans? Or maybe some delicate Brussels sprouts? By now, you might be thinking “Wait, this sounds much like a traditional Thanksgiving menu”. You’re absolutely right! And that is the basic message. Eat real food and avoid highly processed fake foods.

The cranberry sauce on our menu is made without any added sugar. The tartness of the cranberries is balanced by the natural sweetness from unsweetened apple sauce. This makes for a fresh-tasting condiment which complements the heartier dishes perfectly.

If you have room for dessert, we suggest cinnamon apples with a rich and flavorful vanilla sauce or pumpkin pie with some home-made whipped cream as a sweet ending to your meal.

    I would love to have some low carb soup recipes as you can't seem to buy any that are low carb and ready made
