First things first: Nothing (no diet or retirement plans for the year ahead) should keep you from eating anything … that … food on Thanksgiving. But we understand it. If you have been working so hard or have just begun to move in a different eating habit or habit, pressing the pause button (and overworking) may seem like a setback, not just a seriously satisfying meal.
This is especially true for those who have followed the keto diet that maintains ketosis – a condition in which your body is trained to burn fat first, rather than carbohydrates. And to get to that point requires some time and effort. Carbohydrates are usually the first energy source of the body. Therefore, it is very important to limit them while doubling healthy fats. This requires some commitment and planning of meals.
This is all to say, if you want to intimidate yourself at Thanksgiving without knocking your body out of ketose we've covered it. Here's a full Thanksgiving menu from all your favorite side dishes to dessert filled with delicious Keto Thanksgiving recipes. (Looking for vegan Thanksgiving recipes? We have them too.)
