So, you’re trying to cut sugar and carbs from your diet. This can be a tough habit to crack, especially during holidays. Yet, it’s possible!
Typically, it all starts with awareness when it comes to the foods you eat. So, how do you do this? What actions can you take this Easter to make the perfect Easter meal that doesn’t completely throw your keto lifestyle to the curb? Let’s find out.
Tips for Planning Your Meal
For appetizers, easy go-tos include veggies and dip, Caprese salad bites, bacon-wrapped veggies or any bite-sized meats. This one should be fairly simple. However, when you use anything from a package, ensure you check the label for sugar, as well as additives or preservatives. Ideally, you don’t want these as part of your meal.
Traditionally, many families select ham, turkey, or a roast as their main dish. This means you don’t have to worry too much about sugar when it comes to the main. At the same time, you should check the label on any meat you buy to ensure sugar wasn’t used for seasoning or for preservation purposes.
Next up: Your sides!
Here are a few delicious ideas:
- Mashed Cauliflower with butter
- Asparagus with parmesan and garlic
- Green beans with garlic and butter
- Roasted carrots
- Caesar salad (or any other kind of salad)
- Roasted Brussels sprouts with bacon
Generally, making your dishes at home from scratch is an excellent way to ensure that no added sugar goes into your Easter meal. You can indulge and enjoy food, all without sugar, carbs or other chemicals.
