The holidays are such a challenge when you’re trying to stick to any type of carb-conscious eating plan! If you’re anything like me, some days in December you do pretty well, and other days you definitely indulge more than you normally would. But having low-carb food that’s extra delicious can help, and if I’m needing food for holiday dinners or parties, I love having something that’s also brightly red-and-green for a festive holiday dish.
I’m updating this collection of My Favorite Low-Carb Red-and-Green Holiday Recipes to help you get through December without gaining ten pounds! And the birthday celebration continues, and today I’m off on a short birthday trip with my good friend Mary, so I’m posting this round-up a little earlier in the week than normal. I hope people won’t mind if I’m not as attentive to the blog for a few days, because those milestone birthdays don’t come too often, and you have to celebrate them, right?
