I know better than anyone that staying on the right path eating wise during the holidays can be hard. Keto has been a major part of my life for the last year, and the holidays where I slip. That is not say that cheating here or there is a really bad thing, but I plan to stay mostly on track this year. In order to do that, I put together some recipes that would inspire me to stay eating low carb from some of my favorite sites – and I wanted to share that with you!

One of my favorite things about the holidays is all of the delicious food. And just because I am eating keto now doesn’t mean I have to miss out. This stuffing recipe is totally low carb and keto approved, and makes the PERFECT holiday side dish. It is so good that I don’t even miss my cornbread stuffing! I promise, even your family and friends that don’t eat keto will love it!
My favorite thing about the holidays is the meals. Let’s be honest here. And what is a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner without the best part – the turkey! I spent a lot of time trying different recipes to come up with one that my whole family enjoyed. Because my husband and I are living the keto lifestyle, we had to nix our usual brown sugar brine. After taking our favorite parts from several different recipes, we came up with this one! Enjoy!
I have been more or less living the keto lifestyle since January 2018. Even while on vacation I try to stay as much on the “keto diet” as I can. Of course I allow myself cheats here and there. I wrote an article about eating keto at Disney World, but now I want to share with you my five favorite keto meals there. I never miss out on these when I visit, because they are super delicious and approved for my way of eating. A win win!
It is that time of the year! Where it is cold outside and dinners are meant to be comforting and warming. So what better meal to make than chili! Being on keto means no beans or rice, so we decided to make our own keto white chicken chili. This low carb meal is delicious, and you can modify it to work for you. It is mild since we served it to our kids, but if you want spicy, go for it! The best part? You only need one pot to cook it in! Easy and delicious!
Looking for a great comfort food for the chilly months? This is the time of the year that I end up tempted to go back to my old way of eating. Something I used to love to eat was chicken parm with spaghetti. But now that I discovered this keto approved chicken parm meatloaf recipe, I don’t crave it anymore! Serve with a side of zucchini noodles if you wish.
I am a big sweets girl. So when it comes to living the Keto lifestyle, that is something I tend to miss out on. I recently stumbled across a cheesecake recipe that was keto approved. With a few adjustments we made it our own. And it is now a go to dessert in our home. This is what we will be taking with us to parties all throughout the holiday season.
I am a sucker for collectibles – and that includes collecting game pieces from stores to win big. So when I heard about Walmart and Nabisco teaming up for Collect to Win, you know I was excited! Not only does this game have me collecting pieces to spell out S-N-A-C-K, it allows me to collect my favorite snacks! Specially marked Family Size packages of RITZ, OREO, and CHIPS Ahoy! give you the chance win a $10,000 Walmart gift Card. Think of how helpful that would be (and how many delicious Nabisco snacks you could buy with that!).
The other day my daughter asked for tacos for dinner. Normally, I make cheese cup “shells” for my husband and I to stay keto, but I did not have any shredded Parmesan and it was a holiday. So I decided to wing a keto taco skillet – and it came out amazing. I just threw together some ingredients that sounded like they would taste good together – and was blown away by the verdict! Honestly, this is something that we will have many times over, I already know it!
Something my family tries to do every year is attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. It is truly something we look forward to. Because we have been so often, I was really excited to discover several changes for the 2018 party! Of course we took part in them, as well as some of our favorite things that we do each year. Here are my tips and tricks to get the most out of your 2018 MNSSHP experience.
