Any festivity can be a tough time when you are on a diet. Thanksgiving is a festival centered around food and eating together, and thus it may prove to be a major challenge for those who are on a ketogenic diet. Most Thanksgiving foods are usually rich in carbohydrates, sugar and unhealthy fats. You might be tempted to cheat on your diet but as it turns out, coming up with a keto friendly Thanksgiving menu is easier than you think! You are free to have as much Thanksgiving turkey as you want since it is loaded with protein and healthy fats. Here are a few easy keto friendly Thanksgiving recipes that will be a great accompaniment to the delicious Thanksgiving turkey! These dishes will also be loved by your family members who are not on a keto friendly diet.

1. Appetizer : smoked bacon

Who said bacon can only be a breakfast food? Bacon is packed with fats and proteins which can be turned into a keto friendly food item if you smoke your bagel instead of frying it. Serve it with a cheese dip to make the dish yummier!

2. Appetizer : cauliflower soup

Cauliflower soup can be a unique addition to this year’s Thanksgiving feast. Add some cheddar cheese to the soup for some delicious creaminess. Cauliflower is also a great source of potassium, vitamin C, and omega-3 fatty acids.

3. Side dish : sauteed zucchini

Caramelise zucchini slices in olive oil on a medium flame. Saute them until golden brown in colour. These crispy, delicious zucchini slices are the perfect guilt-free food item to munch on!

4. Side dish : crispy green beans with garlic

Green beans are a part of every classic Thanksgiving meal. Add a keto twist to it by roasting the green beans in olive oil and garlic. Top it up with parmesan cheese. This simple dish will go perfectly with the Thanksgiving turkey!

5. Dessert : nut cookies

No feast is complete without a  dessert. You don’t have to skip this course just because you are on a diet. Bake keto friendly cookies using almond flour and ground hazelnuts. Substitute sugar with jaggery and instead of chocolate, garnish the cookie with nut shavings!
