If there’s a time when everyone seems to be ready to relax their dietary restrictions, it’s at the Christmas feast. But if you’re one of those who find the keto diet works, then you know how important it is to follow the diet closely. (No one wants to go through keto flu more than they have to!) So what’s a faithful keto-dieter to do? Make sure there are some enjoyable options on the table! In that spirit, here are our favorite, tastiest keto-friendly Christmas feast dishes so that you can enjoy the meal as much as everyone else.
Typical cured Christmas hams are far too sugary-sweet to be keto-friendly, but this fresh ham packs in tons of savory flavor thanks to a combo of thyme, tarragon, rosemary, and lavender. It’ll perfume the house with delicious aromas!
