If you’re not already on the Keto diet, here’s a handy guide on the different kinds. You can choose one that fits your lifestyle and get ready to embark on a keto-friendly Christmas!
Prepare for your Keto Christmas with a Keto Cleanse!

Keto-fy Your Christmas Menu!
With Keto, you’re free to enjoy the Christmas classics like ham and eggnog! Yes, you’re not going to miss out on your favorite Christmas flavors on this versatile diet. To make your holiday feasts a keto success, here are some tips!
Start by putting together a Keto diet grocery list
The standard ketogenic diet calls for meals to be made of 70% healthy fat, 20-25% protein, and 5-10% carbohydrates. These ratios can guide you when you go grocery shopping. Make room in your cart for omega-3 and 6 rich food like salmon, tuna, mackerel, and sardines, nuts like almonds and walnuts, and fat like coconut oil.
For meats, better go for organic, grass-fed, or free range. Vegetables are also must-buys, but concentrate on fibrous leafy greens like kale, spinach, or broccoli instead of starchy ones like potatoes.
Get everyone ready for a healthy feast with Keto Christmas appetizers
One of the things that result in overeating is going into banquets hungry. The human brain takes around 15 minutes to register fullness. So if you’re hungry, you tend to eat fast and end up eating a lot because your brain took a lot of time before realizing that your stomach is actually full.
To counter that, why not treat your guests to some keto Christmas appetizers? Switch the usual deep-fried potato fries with these addictive Garlic Basil Fried Butternut Squash Chips. Warm their tummies with a nice rich Pumpkin Chipotle Soup – use full-fat coconut milk or heavy cream! You can start the protein parade early on with these flavorful Bacon Sausage Skewers.
Fill up the table with Keto Christmas sides
With keto, you’ll never have to go hungry. The diet is designed for you to basically eat until you’re full as long as you stick to the recommended macronutrient ratios. As such, these Keto Christmas sides are great complementing the main dishes!
This delicious Garlic Cauliflower puree would fool anyone into thinking that it’s actual mashed potato! If you’re craving for some stuffing, you can make a keto-friendly one by only using veggies and mushrooms! Fulfill your fat ratio by adding some chopped sausage bits.
Don’t worry about gaining holiday weight with a Keto Christmas dinner
For the main event, here are keto Christmas dinner entrees! Spice up the usual smoked ham by making a baked ham with a rosemary and mustard crust. Keep your turkey juicy by wrapping it in a bacon blanket! You can drizzle this Keto gravy generously over your meats for extra flavor.
Help Santa Clause slim down with these Keto Christmas cookies!
