It's thanksgiving week and I know it can tempting to plan a cheat day for thanksgiving. How many of you out there plan on staying low carb/keto - no cheating for thanksgiving? And what do you plan on cooking and baking?
And No offense if you do plan a cheat day, enjoy!!!
I plan on making a few keto recipes: Spanish Cauliflower Rice with sausage, green bean casserole, and a Keto cheesecake. Of course there will be turkey!

I'll be mostly good for sure, but there are 2 things that I only get at Thanksgiving; my great aunt's buttermilk pie, and another aunt's carrot cake. I plan on a TINY piece of each, because I'm not sure I'll have the opportunity again since they are both getting on in age. Not to mention no one else seems to ahve been able to duplicate them yet!

MMmmmmmm, oh my gosh I love CARROT CAKE!!! I would def take up that opportunity also.

Carrot cake is why I didn't start on my weight loss until AFTER July... I get a BIG carrot cake for my birthday each year and I couldn't see my self passing it up. Now, I'll be fine with a small piece, but before, it would have weighed 1/2 pound! LOL My goal for the week is to maintain from a scale standpoint.

I'm not counting calories, but I'm also not pigging out and I don't eat desserts so I will be okay,

I at a baked potato yesterday and felt like crap last night. I need to find something in place of potatoes for thanksgiving.

I feel absolutely no need to cheat. I don't eat meat, so no loss there but my menu is creamed spinach, cheesy baked asparagus, creamy Parmesan & garlic mushrooms, roasted cauliflower, broccoli, & zucchini cheese soup, spaghetti squash scampi, and a cheesecake for desert. Lots of dairy, butter, and veggies. I will end up eating more fat than normal, and the extra carbs will come with fiber. I love feeling good! That beats stuffing, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce anyday! Whatever you do - No guilt, no regrets, enjoy and know that tomorrow's a new day.

I will eat the turkey and will have perhaps a spoon of each other item. I will be making a keto version of a pumpkin pie and we have sugar free pickles, etc. Happy Thanksgiving!

@Lisaconley Pinterest has some great recipes for cauliflower mash and some people like baked radish (cut in fours) they claim its liked baked potatoes. Haven't tried it though.

missgrizzy, the fried radish totally taste and look like potatoes. I love them!

No full on cheating for us, doing Common Sense Keto, so will take a loaded cauliflower dish, a keto pecan pie, and gobs of organic whipped cream, and will refrain from the host's breads/stuffing/desserts/starchy vegs (actually, from any of their vegs since they don't eat real food and those will be full of junk). So, def will go over carb count somewhat, but super blowing it! :)

Meant to say NOT super blowing it! Is there an edit option on here???

Mybrookee and missgrizzy just made my day. I didn't know you could fry radishes. Ran right to the store and bought some.

Staying keto but cheating with a small slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream. DH wants traditional Thanksgiving, I'm just not craving the high carbs ... yeah!
