A Delicious Trim Healthy Mama Thanksgiving

We don’t have to eat off plan during the holidays!

A trim healthy mama Thanksgiving is more than possible, it’s tasty and easy. You will need to plan ahead, just like you have to do for a regular Thanksgiving dinner. I have you covered with everything from cranberry sauce to green bean casserole to roast turkey and dessert. If you are making everything or just a few sides and dessert, keep reading, I have you covered.

The holidays are a time for family and food.

Lots of memories and laughs shared. Unless your entire family is on plan, there will be lots of food passed around that isn’t on plan. Make on plan substitutes that are just as yummy!!! No need to eat off plan during the holidays, unless you want to! I am all about giving myself grace when I need to. These recipes are so good, your off plan family members will most likely love them too.

I suggest making a few things ahead if possible.

The mini cheesecakes, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, and a few more can be made 2 days ahead. With some planning and a little prep, you can have an easy and on plan trim healthy mama Thanksgiving. All of these recipes are low carb as well!

Here are a few appetizer ideas

Stuffed Jalapenos. My hubby is asked to bring them to all of the major get-togethers

Loaded Deviled Eggs– a twist on a classic favorite appetizer.

Here is a page with some on plan Charcuterie Board ideas

Turkey, the star of the show

Thanksgiving sides

Twice Baked Cauliflower is amazing!! Or mashed cauliflower. Or THM Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Veggies are a great addition, maybe some roasted mushrooms or roasted Brussels sprouts

Low Carb Green Bean Casserole or a super easy Bacon Green Bean Skillet for a side

“Sweet Potato” Casserole is a must. We have macaroni and cheese every holiday. Here is my favorite on plan recipe. It’s a take on Alton Brown’s recipe.

A lovely big salad will be nice to lighten things up a little bit

Cranberry Sauce is something I make every year, this one is sugar free of course. Allulose sweetener is recommended since it won’t crystalize in the fridge.

Keto Croissants if you want a low carb bread option

Now a few THM Dessert ideas

What about a low carb apple pie? If you want something that is ridiculously easy to make and is only a few ingredients, make this chocolate candy. If you have goji berries, it tastes better with them but tastes great either way.

Pumpkin or Chocolate Mousse, both are delicious. This Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake is amazing!!

Low Carb Mini Cheesecakes are so easy to make, no stress when making these little goodies. You can fill the cavities that they make with any topping that you would like. I topped them with some cranberry sauce and a little whipped cream. Yum!

Pecan Pie Bars bring back that familiar holiday flavor.

Pumpkin Pie Bars, these are so creamy and easy to make or how about a no bake pumpkin pie?!?

How about a caramel sauce to top so many of today’s goodies?
