If this is your first Thanksgiving on the keto diet, I beg you not to do like me on my first year − to eat only green beans with some turkey…
As always, if you want to have a great Thanksgiving with your loved ones, you’ll have to adjust almost every dish, from appetizers to sides to dessert and even the main course.
Below, you’ll find all the recipes separated by category: Appetizers, Mains, Sides & Desserts so you can easily pick the ones you like most.
