Never fear, I’ve got you covered. I searched high and low for the best keto and low carb Thanksgiving recipes the internet has to offer. I worked on this list for a long time, trying to find you all the classics made low carb, gluten free, and sugar free.

    Looks wonderful Carolin! Thank you very much!


  2. Joan says

    Carol, you are so amazing and so generous with these recipes. Thank you so much! Keto has changed my life for the better!


  3. Barb Ross says

    We were just planning our Thanksgiving menu shopping yesterday & your Thanksgiving recipes came at the perfect time! Everything sounds so good that I’ll need to be sure to limit how many dishes I make. Thank you!


  4. Karen Stout says

    Carolyn, is there a cookbook or ebook that I can purchase for these TG recipes? I want them all! Thank you got all that do and share!


    • Carolyn says

      Not at this time, no… but I have been considering it!


      • Wendy says

        I second the request for a Thanksgiving Holiday Keto Cookbook. And one for Christmas meals too!


        • Brenda says

          Here’s a third request for the holiday cookbook.
          By the way, the baking book is fantastic!! Thanks for doing that one.


          • Linda Wolff says

            And I am making the fourth request! I also love your baking cookbook, but because my best friend took one look through it and also loves it, I ended up giving her my copy and now need to purchase another one for myself! Ha ha! I think putting together Holiday cookbooks is a great idea. Especially if they are the soft cover type that aren’t quite as expensive that you see in the checkout lines at the grocery stores.

  5. Margaret says

    If I wanted to use pre-packaged coconut flour or keto bread, how much do we use in place of your skillet bread? Number or slices or ounces?


    • Carolyn says

      Good question. I’d think you’d want the whole loaf.
