Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How to stay keto on Thanksgiving?
The secret isn’t just in the desserts it is in the entire meal. Thanksgiving is a holiday full of carbs from the pastas, rice and different forms of casseroles. The desserts aren’t the only worry. The best way to stay on low-carb is to eat keto friendly foods. Now, dirty keto may be more beneficial to try things here or there. Surprisingly, once keto adapted you will be able to get away with more. Just be careful and aim for majority of keto friendly foods that day.
What desserts should I make for Thanksgiving?
That depends on what you and your family like. There are traditional desserts that are pumpkin spice based such as pumpkin pie or more nutty like pecan pie. Spices are great fall flavors this time of year as in snickerdoodle cookies. Another thing to consider is how long you want to stay in the kitchen. It can be tiring if you are already planning the entire meal. Maybe a no bake dessert such as banana pudding or easy like cheesecake jars are better for you.
How do I make keto Thanksgiving desserts?
Easy, you will need a great keto dessert recipe but one aimed at the holiday itself. Understanding which keto sweeteners you want to use in your ingredients because there will be recipes that need brown sugar sweetener, granulated and powdered sweetener. They all have their places on the keto diet. Now, do you want almond flour or coconut flour? I suggest almond unless you have a nut-allergy for desserts. Then, that’s it! Begin making recipes and seeing what you like the most!
