I love Thanksgiving food. But I don’t love sugars and grains. And I especially hate gluten. It sure does seem like most Thanksgiving foods are gluten and sugar bombs. So what’s a low carber to do? Say screw it and binge? Or miss out on all the yummy foods as you watch everyone else say screw it and binge?
There’s a third alternative! Make these NSNG (No Sugars No Grains) Thanksgiving sides to eliminate the gluten, minimize your carbs, and maximize your eating enjoyment.
Gluten Free, Low Carb Sides:
Acorn Squash Soufflé (a great sub for candied yams)
These recipes have added sugar–the least amount possible, but still…sugar nonetheless. Use these instead of traditional Thanksgiving recipes to consume less sugar (and still stay gluten free and grain free):
Now let’s get to eating and giving thanks!
