The question mark in that title is a big one. Honestly, up until the last few days I was determined I was going to stay keto for Christmas but now I’m not so sure. The soul search continues and while I absolutely 100% believe that a low carb keto way of eating is what suits me best it’s definitely time to change it up a little. But more on that later, right now we’re here to talk about Christmas!!!
It’s just around the corner guys! Who loves Christmas as much as I do? I love it for the family gatherings, the traditions the gifts. Just the smell of the paper as I wrap the presents is enough to send me spiralling into the world of nostalgia of Christmases past. But lets not forget the food. How amazing is all of the traditional Christmas food!?
Staying keto for Christmas doesn’t mean you have to miss out. I mean a traditional baked dinner is as keto as can be if you skip the potatoes. And the great Aussie seafood for Christmas tradition? Can’t get much more low carb than that. But what we really want to talk about are the desserts.
What’s your favourite? Christmas pudding? Gingerbread? Trifle? A good Christmas pavlova?
Luckily there are some fabulous people out there who’ve managed to convert some of our favourites into keto friendly treats. Leanne at Healthful Pursuit has been kind enough to collect a whole lot of them on her Pinterest page.
And if you’re looking for something with an Australian twist, be sure to check out Have Butter Will Travel for their fantastic Christmas suggestions.
Of course there are thousands of people sharing their Christmas recipe suggestions on Instagram and FB at the moment too so let your fingers do the walking and search away people. I’ll be testing out some keto Christmas recipes over the next couple weeks and I’ll be sure to report back on how they turn out.
