Next, who says Thanksgiving is the only time of year you can eat turkey?! On the contrary, this low-calorie, high-protein dish is the perfect addition to your holiday dinner table. With the additions of fresh herbs like sage, thyme, rosemary and parsley, this healthy and savory dish will go with a wide range of keto side dishes.

Plus, butter is the main star of the sauce in this recipe; We recommend a grass-fed option, which will not only help you reach your daily keto fat intake, but believe it or not offers amazing health benefits. Grass-fed butter is a great source of vitamins A and K2, along with conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which can help build muscle and promote weight loss.

Moving onto keto side dishes, you can’t have a keto holiday dinner without some of the best low-carb sides… and this recipe for roasted radishes is an absolute must-try! In this recipe, the radishes actually mimic roasted potatoes, as the roasting process removes the bitterness of the veggie. So, if you’re craving the crunchy outside and tender inside of potatoes this holiday, (with an extra flair), these radishes make the perfect low-carb substitute.

Plus, radishes are also full of antioxidants and high in vitamins C and K, and minerals potassium and calcium!

Plus, the veggie is high in vitamins C and K, along with folate.

This interesting, traditional German recipe is both sweet and sour, featuring apple cider vinegar, onion, bacon, whole grain mustard, and low-carb brown sugar, (for an exciting, tangy taste and addicting flavor)!

Did someone say keto-friendly eggnog?! This holiday drink favorite gets a keto-friendly makeover like never before, and is so yummy, your friends may even prefer it over the typical spiked beverage. With this keto holiday dessert recipe, you won’t even miss the alcohol… but you can add in a small amount if you really can’t do without it (and it lines up with your daily carb count).

One thing is for sure… the heavy whipping cream, almond milk, and eggs make this a truly indulgent yet healthy beverage. And it also includes a healthier sweetener than sugar, (the sugar alcohol, erythritol). Note that you can also use plant-based Stevia, which is another great natural sweetener option.

Pro tip: Add in a scoop of 310 Shake to make this drink even thicker and more satisfying, while helping to boost your energy and metabolism!

And because of how good they taste, no one will know the recipe uses a low-carb sweetener instead of sugar, and sugar-free chocolate chips. Plus, the butter, heavy whipping cream and eggs make it richly satisfying, while the lightly-toasted pecans add additional healthy fats and protein.
