It’s almost New Year’s Eve and I’m checking in with you to share a quick recipe for a festive low carb drink option! This spiced cranberry spritzer is perfect for anyone who wants a non-alcoholic option at their holiday party that won’t pile on the carbs or calories (leaving more room for delicious foods, am I right?)
Christmas is almost here! Which means it’s time to reveal our 2017 Christmas cookie design! I was so excited when I found out the US Postal Service released The Snowy Day stamps this year, so when it was time to design our cookies, I couldn’t think of a better theme than the classic children’s book. So, without further ado, here is our take on The Snowy Day Christmas cookies. (more…)
Back when I wrote up my favorite keto thanksgiving recipes, I told you I had been working on a low carb green bean casserole recipe but that I didn’t have it quite to where I wanted it. And I promised you I’d have it ready before Christmas. So here it is!
It’s not that there aren’t other low carb green bean casseroles out there. There are. But I couldn’t find a single one that had fried onions. And I really, really like fried onions in my green bean casserole. So while it’s a little more work to fry your own onions (the kind in the can aren’t low-carb) it’s absolutely worth it to me. I wanted this to have all the familiar flavors of the traditional green bean casserole, but with the exquisite flavors that only come from using fresh ingredients instead of canned. I used fresh green beans but I think you could also substitute frozen and get a similar result.
Tomorrow marks the first day of Advent, and with it all the traditions the come along with the celebration of Christmas. A few years ago, we bought an Advent calendar to use with LM, but I knew I didn’t want to put candy in it, I wanted something more meaningful. So we made ours an Advent activities calendar.
