If you’re anything like me, your Thanksgiving might look a lot different this year – both in terms of size and diet!

We’re planning to stay home and celebrate with just us this year, something that makes me a bit sad since we traditionally have big family dinners, but also something that has me a bit excited.

This holiday will be a big change, but I’m excited to focus on my favorite people and make the holiday special for us whatever way I can.

Anyway, our big Thanksgiving meal won’t be quite as large as normal, but we’re still planning a feast! And this year? It’ll be low carb and keto!

Main Dish:

We all love our yearly turkey, but none of us want a month’s worth of leftovers so we’re doing a turkey breast!

This air fryer turkey breast is what’s on our menu. Small enough for the four of us, cooks in an hour, and the skin turns out crispy, and the meat is nice and juicy.

We highly recommend this turkey breast recipe!

Any leftovers you do have will work great in this leftover turkey casserole.

Desserts:

It’s not Thanksgiving without pie!

We have two pies that we’re struggling to decide between.

This keto pumpkin pie is a bit upside down! No crust, but it has a fun streusel topping on top!

This no bake pumpkin pie is so creamy and loaded with pumpkin flavor – plus it doesn’t take up oven space, which is a bonus on the big day.

And, of course, keto pumpkin cheesecake is an option on the table too!

The mushy part:

Alright, now that we’ve got the food out of the way (that’s the bit I assume you came here for!), allow me to get a bit emotional all over you.

I just want each and every one of my readers to know that you have impacted my life and my family in so many more ways than you know and we do not take that for granted.

We are so grateful for you.

Beyond the fact that every visit you make to this site helps to put a roof over our heads, I’m so honored to get to know all of you that take the time to leave kind comments or send me emails.

I love hearing your success stories with eating a low carb diet.

I love getting those emails that you tried a low carb recipe on your family and it was kid and spouse approved.

I love hearing one of my recipes is a new favorite.

I love that you trust me enough to come to me for advice on recipes and weight loss and more.

You are the best and I hope you know that we are thankful this year and every year for you.

  1. Corn starch mixed in a cup with cold water makes gravy easy when mixed into boiling scrapings

    How can you show sliced turkey with gravy and mashed with gravy and NOT post a recipe for the gravy?????
    Gravy is probably one of the key items on everyone’s Thanksgiving menu impossible to find great recipe.
    Your’s looks like it might be.

    Please post the recipe –PLEASE!

  3. Thank you so much, Karly!! Turkey with gravy is a sure thing. I use Xanthan gum to thicken the gravy. My husband loves your Maple Roasted Acorn Squash, he would never eat acorn squash before, so that is a definite. I think I’ll try the Sauteed Broccoli with Bacon and the Cauliflower Mac & Cheese as well. Only two of us so trying to limit by menu at least a little bit. Dessert is still up in the air, hubby has already voted for your Chocolate Mousse and I do want to try adding coffee extract to make it Mocha Moose, so that may just win the vote. lol

      Hi Noreen!

      I’m so glad you and the hubby are enjoying the recipes and he’s learning to like new foods. Always feels like such an accomplishment when I get my husband to like something new. Haha! As for the mocha mousse…that’s a great idea and you might just see that pop up on the blog one of these days! Brilliant idea – thanks for sharing!

      1. Hi Karly,
        I know what you mean about getting your husband to like something new. Don’t ever give up trying. We have been married 35 years and Dave has been more receptive to new foods now than ever before.
        FYI, Mocha is a favorite flavor of mine so I am always trying to add it to chocolate recipes. Before low carb I used to make mocha almond fudge and around the holidays I miss that.
        Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving…I know the food will be great with you cooking!

    Thank you so much for the multitude of varied recipes to make a low-carb delicious Thanksgiving. I greatly appreciate your weekly recipes too throughout the year!

    These all look fabulous and we will be having many of them for Thanksgiving. A question though…the pictures with the turkey show gravy…is there is a tasty way to make turkey gravy with the high carbs?

    1. Use Xanthan Gum in place of the flour in gravy. I recently started using it and it’s a Godsend! Kinda pricey, but a LITTLE goes a long way! Trust me on this. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Claudette Sova

        Yes, I use Xanthan Gum too. I put it in some cold water first just like you would the cornstarch. And Yes, a little goes a long way. whisk the hell out of it too. It is very tasty. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

    2. Karly Campbell

      You can definitely make gravy with low carb ingredients, but I haven’t quite perfected it yet myself. I’m sure you can find something on Google or Pinterest though! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Connie Sue Larson

        Thanks, Karly. It is time for me to figure gravy out. I love being intentional and planning ahead for a celebration so I don’t derail myself!
