What do I need for keto sides for Christmas dinner?
If you haven’t been cooking while keto for long, don’t worry- I can help! There’s a few different items that you’ll need to be sure you have stocked before you head off into your keto cooking journey.
I recommend this almond flour and this coconut flour. Both of these flours have a much lower carb count than traditional flour, but they also have very different absorption rates. I wouldn’t recommend substituting one for the other unless the recipe says it’s okay. If a recipe needs to be sweetened, I usually use monkfruit or Swerve. These do not impact your blood sugar, are lower in calories, and are keto- and diabetic-friendly!
What are some good sides for Christmas dinner?
Many people have a very “Thanksgiving-esque” dinner for Christmas, but not all people! I know many families go for special lobster and crab leg dinners while some prefer steaks, beef roasts, or stuffed chickens! The most important thing is that it fits your family’s tastes and preferences.
I like to load up on a lot of vegetables, but nothing plain and boring! Roasted vegetables like brussels sprouts, asparagus, and mushrooms are simple yet can be easily punched up with seasonings, butter, and cheese! Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole provides a deliciously creamy texture that even cauliflower haters can love! Don’t forget the bread–These Rosemary Garlic Keto Dinner Rolls provide a perfect herby addition to any meal!
