Keto Thanksgiving FAQ

What do you eat on Thanksgiving keto?

A keto Thanksgiving consists of high-protein turkey plus low-carb side dishes such as bacon Brussels sprouts, cheesy asparagus, keto cornbread stuffing, and delicious keto dessert recipes.

How do I satisfy a sweet tooth on keto?

You can still eat keto desserts at Thanksgiving such as keto chocolate lasagna, Instant Pot lime cheesecake, and baked keto New York cheesecake. Search all the low-carb and keto desserts to find your favorite flavor.

Can I eat green beans on the keto diet?

Beans are higher in net carbs so most keto followers think their green bean casserole is not allowed, but as long as you portion control your green beans and they fit within your daily carb allowance, you can get them. However, you may want to spend your carbs on a lower-carb side dish so you can eat more.

Can I eat turkey on a keto?

Yes, turkey is high protein meat that can be enjoyed whether you are on a low-carb diet, keto diet, or even a carnivore diet. Dark meat and turkey legs are tasty because they are high in iron.

How can I make keto easier at Thanksgiving?

Enjoy the high protein turkey meat, avoid the high-carb side dishes, avoid bread and choose low starch vegetables and make a yummy keto dessert recipe.

Can I eat sweet potatoes on keto?

Sweet potatoes (as the name suggests) are sweet and a high-carb root vegetable so generally avoided on the keto diet. However, like green beans, sweet potatoes can be enjoyed in a small amount.

How do I make keto Thanksgiving stuffing?

There are recipes for keto cornbread and keto pork stuffing, or you can use any leftover or stale keto bread to make your own family’s favorite stuffing recipe. Chicken broth or turkey drippings is the perfect addition that makes it extra tasty for your savory tooth.

Now you can plan out your entire healthy Thanksgiving dinner using these simple low-carb and keto recipes. There is literally everything you need to put together an amazing meal all right here on one page!
