Staying on track during the holidays
It’s been said that the average American consumes a whopping 4,500 calories during the tradition Thanksgiving meal alone. I used to give myself a “holiday pass”, to eat whatever I wanted, in the name of “tradition”. I now realize that those choices would eventually spill over to days, weeks, even years of poor eating. The key to success for me is consistency, and being prepared with keto friendly options.
This year I will definitely be giving thanks for the opportunity to turn my life and health around. I truly can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to push forward through the holidays and into this new year, with a new outlook, a new sense of confidence, and the most amazing support system.
From my family to yours, Happy Holidays!
Below are some foods ideas and recipes to help make your holiday more keto friendly!
