Thanksgiving is just around the corner and people are scrambling to find recipes that can suffice and entice both keto and non-keto friends or family. I knew I had to get this one up in time because it’s just that good. Little bars of chewy goodness baked around a pumpkin theme. A perfect treat for the whole family!
I’ve been getting many questions lately about how to stay keto during the holiday months. People find it tough when their families don’t support their dietary choices and feel like they should just give up because of that reason. Who wants to be heckled by their own family members, anyway? Well, health and weight loss is always going to be a hard journey, but it’s always worth the flack that you go through once you get closer and closer to your goals.
Staying keto shouldn’t feel like a chore, especially during those special occasions when everyone is getting together. Feel free to make these for a Thanksgiving gettogether where you can share low-carb and keto friendly recipes with your family and friends. Nobody will know they’re keto, but once you let them know, it may actually open their eyes to a few things and make it easier for them to understand your transition.
I hope you guys have an amazing keto-friendly Thanksgiving and can share it with all of your family and friends!
