The holiday season is best known for giving, spending time with family, and…..eating. With many holiday parties and gatherings taking place, it can be a particularly difficult time of year for those on the ketogenic diet. Whether it’s your mom’s mouth-watering stuffing or your Aunt Erma’s world-famous apple pie, staying keto throughout the holidays can be quite the challenge.
To help combat the carbs this winter, we’ve put together some tips on how to stay keto during the holidays, as well as some keto-friendly recipes to help keep you on track!
Find the Healthy Foods. While many holiday gatherings and parties offer unhealthy temptations, it’s important to search for the healthy options. Look for items like veggie trays, green beans, mixed nuts, cheese, cocktail shrimp, turkey, and other low-carb options.
Stay Active. Getting stuck in the mindset of “I’ll workout after the holidays” can really set you back. Make time to workout through the holiday season and kick the excuses to the curb!
Indulge Moderately. We’re all familiar with the concept of cheat meals. If you choose to indulge during the holidays, do so moderately and don’t go overboard. Make an effort to not let one cheat meal snowball into a week’s worth of unhealthy meals.
Leave the Leftovers. Turning down a generous offer from your parents, grandparents, or in-laws to take leftovers home can be tough, but it’s a good decision for those committed to staying keto. As we mentioned above, it’s ok if you choose to indulge, but do yourself a favor and leave the leftovers!
Host the Party. If you’re able to, hosting the party can be very beneficial for staying keto. By being in control of most of the food menu, you can ensure that the food options are keto-friendly.
Whether you’re bringing a dish to a gathering, or hosting a party, keto-friendly recipes are exactly what you need to help get you through the holidays. Below, we’ve compiled some of our favorite keto-friendly holiday recipes that are sure to fill the dinner table with joy!
