13 Holiday Recipes That Are Keto-Approved
When it comes to hosting holiday feasts, we always try to take into account everyone's dietary needs. From preparing vegan holiday sides to gluten-free cookies, it's a fun challenge to make sure all our guests are well-fed. But there's a new dietary trend that's recently soared in popularity — according to Pinterest, saves of ketogenic recipes are up 4,460 percent over this time last year. The focus is on low-carb, high-fat foods, and starchy items and refined sugars should be avoided. It might sound hard to adhere to, but these keto recipes make it easy to please everyone at the table.
