Exclamation Thanksgiving in Canada - HELP

I'm on P1 and have to make a thanksgiving meal for my family. I'm hoping that there are some suggestions out there as to how to make the dinner so that I don't have to be overly tempted by all the fixings. I can handle not eating the potatoes and have already told my BF that I won't be doing that, but I will make them for him. Am I doomed to just turkey, cauliflower and brussel sprouts?

Any suggestions / recipies any one has sure would be greatly appreciated.

Hey, mgb4t!

There are tons of great recipes and ideas in our forum, but some seem hidden! Here's are some great older threads that may help:

Worried about Winter and the Holidays

Thanksgiving is Coming Up

Here are links to threads in the Recipe Forum on Holiday Recipes:

Low Carb Holiday Appetizers

Low Carb Holiday Main Dishes

Low Carb Holiday Side Dishes

Low Carb Holiday Desserts


You can make a delicious pumpkin custard (basically just the middle of the pumpkin pie) for yourself for dessert...you can make some kind of gravy with arrowroot to thicken it, I bet, and you can enjoy lots of different veggies. It's hard to do a holiday on P1, I admit. Good for you for sticking with it!

On P2, Thanksgiving is SUPER easy! I have the most fabulous recipe for stuffing that I used last year at my in-laws. Everyone loved it! I'll have to post it and put a link here for you. I also make this amazing pumpkin ginger tart that is to die for! WW crust, splenda, and a tiny splurge with a miniscule amount of candied ginger on top. Yum!

You can make roasted new/red potatoes if you absolutely have to have them, but sweet potatoes can be a great stand in! And of course, you can make WW rolls that are delicious!

What really changed for me at the holidays after SBD is eating a LOT more veggies...it makes a huge difference! I end up full and satisfied, but not overstuffed, gassy, bloated, and uncomfortable, like I was before SBD. It's a much more pleasant sensation now!

Plus, learning to focus on other parts of the holiday that don't have to do with food, like seeing famiily, going for a walk, playing pool, singing songs, playing games outside, like bocce, badminton, or volleyball (depending on your weather) is great, too!

I know, with some planning, you'll get through it!
