Eating healthy during the holidays: The struggle is real!

This time of the year, we constantly fight the temptation of unhealthy treats like cookies, fudge, pie, sweet-potato casserole and an assortment of breads (just to name a few). If you are following along with us on our journey and trying to make healthier and greener lifestyle choices, we want to share some menu suggestions and tips that will keep you on-track and not derail your journey.

For Christmas breakfast, make this Crustless Quiche in advance. Fry up some bacon to go with! Another option is Keto Sausage Balls.

For a Christmas dinner appetizer, try these stuffed mushrooms or go with a cheese, meat and olive tray.

For your main course, choose a beef-roast or lamb.

Beef Roast

For some good side-dish options, try roasted radishes (these are delish!) or Mockafoni and Cheese.

Roasted Radishes

Of course, the struggle is usually not the main course or the sides; it’s the dessert that always trips us up!  Two of my favorites are Chocolate Chunk Coffee Cheesecake and Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars (external link).

After dinner and dessert, we may also need a little snack to tide us over to the next meal. For this, try Deviled Eggs, hit the meat, cheese and olive tray again, have some raw veggies with cream cheese or have some Pork Rinds.

All of these recipe suggestions are low-carb, Keto-friendly and gluten-free!
