Keto dieting over the holidays can seem like a real challenge. Being surrounded by all the sweets at parties and dinners will show you how strong your willpower is!

That’s why it pays to be prepared. Bringing your own sweets and sides to holiday get-togethers is the best thing you can do for yourself (and others).

If you are hosting Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Easter at home, prepare some keto appetizers and an entire buffet of keto-friendly dishes.

They will be so tasty that chances are your guests will never even know what they are missing.

Consider creating mini skewers like this Caprese pesto bites. 

Keto Holiday Meal Planning:

Serve homemade spinach artichoke dip with celery scoops or cucumber wedges for another colorful and festive dish. Or shrimp with a delicious shrimp cocktail sauce.

Dress up your entrees. Don’t just serve turkey, serve keto bacon-wrapped turkey breast. If you’re making chicken serve keto herb-roasted chicken and veggies.

You don’t have to go boring and bland during the holidays. Oh, and sweets. You can still make them!

Try our keto gingerbread with cream cheese, if you don’t believe me!

You can also never go wrong with deviled eggs. If you plan your menu carefully, most of your guests will never know you’re on a keto diet.

A vegetable platter can be colorful and satisfying when paired with one or more dips. Homemade ranch, sour cream and onion, and so on, are all rich in taste but low in carbs.

Calculate both your carb budget and your financial budget before your next holiday party and you will be sure to come up with a range of low carb appetizers your family and friends will love.

Keto Cinnamon Sugar Pecans Recipe:

Nut Variations: Walnuts help lower cholesterol naturally and go well with most cheeses and fruits. 

Macadamia nuts are a common Christmas treat, though they can be expensive if you do not buy them at one of the popular warehouse stores. They are full of fiber and have a satisfying creamy flavor. A few go a long way to helping you feel full.
