Low Carb Thanksgiving Recipes

Thanksgiving is an American holiday deeply rooted in tradition and history. But it is also a holiday that is surrounded by pounds of turkey, ham or duck, mounds of mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce, casserole dishes filled with green beans, sweet potatoes and cornbread and of course copious amounts of dessert. With all that food covering your holiday table it’s easy to understand that putting on ten to fifteen pounds of holiday weight is actually fairly common this time of the year. Especially when you factor in left overs. But your Thanksgiving day celebrations don’t have to put a dent in your fitness progress. This year try these low carb Thanksgiving recipes to keep your stomach satisfied but slim.
