25+ Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Holiday Side Dishes, Appetizers, and Salads
Thanksgiving is three weeks away! And tomorrow I’m having an extra-busy day, so I’m giving you Low-Carb Recipe Love a little early this week, and I’m sharing my updated collection of 25+ Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Holiday Side Dishes, Appetizers, and Salads. Check out Thanksgiving Recipes to see more low-carb ideas for the holidays!
I know how hard it is to stick with a low-carb eating plan during the holidays, and one thing that helps is to be sure every menu has some healthy options! So to help you get started with that I’m sharing this updated round-up of 25+ Low-Carb and Gluten-Free Holiday Side Dishes, Appetizers, and Salads. These are perfect for anyone who needs the lowest-carb Thanksgiving menu, whatever the reason!
Every recipe here is a favorite I’ve enjoyed many times, so I know you won’t feel deprived with any of these on your holiday table. I’m updating this post with better photos for some of these favorites plus adding a few new options for 2017, and I hope you’ll find a low-carb dish here you’ll really enjoy on Thanksgiving! And if you’re a long time reader who’s enjoyed some of these favorites through the years, I’d love to hear in the comments about which ones you might be making for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner!
And I know planning the Thanksgiving menu goes on for a few weeks while you’re narrowing it down, so for Low-Carb Recipe Love next week I’ll give more options for low-carb side dishes, with recipes from some of my favorite low-carb bloggers. And then sometime before Thanksgiving gets here I’ll also be updating My Top Ten Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes. Those favorites are healthier choices than traditional Thanksgiving fare, but not all my Thanksgiving favorites are as strictly low in carbs as the ones I’m sharing today.
Thanksgiving Spinach Salad with Dried Cranberries, Almonds, and Goat Cheese
(Omit dried cranberries for the lowest carb version of this.)
Brussels Sprouts Salad with Bacon, Almonds, and Parmesan
(You can add a few dried cranberries if you don’t mind the extra carbs.)
