Today, in the US we’re celebrating Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving! If you are on a ketogenic diet, consideration for you and your diet are represented with tips of enjoyment. Here Jessica Migala and Korin Miller, WomensHealthMag.com reflect on recipes for the occasion:
“When you’re on the keto diet, the holidays can be tough to navigate (pie, boozy punch, and stuffing, I'm looking at you). But with a few creative touches, you can have a serious feast.
Let’s get this out of the way first: If you’re going to a loved one’s house for Thanksgiving, you’ll probably only be able to eat the turkey. Womp, womp. Many seemingly low-carb dishes like green bean casserole or gravy are made with flour, which adds too many carbs for the keto diet.

Your fix: BYO. Make a couple dishes at home to take with you or go all out and host a keto Thanksgiving on your own (a la Jenna Jameson). You can make all the traditional dishes, from apps to desserts, but with keto-compliant ingredients, says Los Angeles-area dietitian Sarah Jadin, R.D., of Keto Consulting, LLC. (She’s crafted a full keto Thanksgiving meal for under 20 grams of carbs!) “There’s a substitute for everything,” she says.
A few general tips for making your Thanksgiving keto-friendly: Swap out mashed potatoes for mashed cauliflower, nix adding any flour to thicken recipes like green bean casserole or creamed spinach, and load up on the low-carb veggies like Brussels sprouts, spaghetti squash, and mushrooms.
Oh, and a word on booze. Jadin says if you do opt for an alcoholic drink, go for a pure distilled spirit (plain vodka, for instance) mixed with a splash of diet soda or tonic. A dry wine is another option. And, stick to a glass or two—max. “Alcohol tends to affect people on a keto diet sooner and harder compared to people eating a general diet,” she says.
And you didn't think you'd have to start from scratch, did you? Here are 19 keto Thanksgiving recipes to put on your menu.
