Are you looking for a keto-friendly Thanksgiving meal this year? Keep reading to find 16 of the most keto-friendly & delicious Thanksgiving Recipes to serve around your table! I’ve found great recipes with only 5 ingredients, 3 net carbs, and ready in under 15 minutes!

What Kind of Foods Are in These Recipes?

I’ve found recipes for replacements of the classic potato sides. Keto recipes use turnip, squash, pumpkin and cabbage to keep carbs low. I’ve also found some amazing cheesy dishes, including some cheesy Garlic “Bread” twists everyone at your table will enjoy!

What is Keto?

Keto is a low-carb and high-fat diet similar to the famous Atkins Diet. The keto diet’s main idea is that the low-carb speed up the fat-burning process to help you lose weight faster. The number of carbs you need on the keto diet can vary; however, most individuals stick between 20-50g per day. You want to stay away from bread, pasta, rice, fried foods, and high-carb fruits for the keto diet. Most keto dieters stick to high protein foods such as chicken, beef, and dairy products.

 

Now that you know the basics of the keto diet, let’s get into some amazing recipes.
