Holiday Survival Guide

What are the plans for this year?
I plan to make one or two LC goodies for myself(perhaps a cheesecake without crust,something else) and keep it in freezer for emergency.
for family I will try to make everything LC without their knowledge

Still need plan for all those get
togethers perhaps bring some chicken dish

last time an unexpected bunch of visitors is what veered me off plan,bcoz I had took some high carb stuff(they were vegans ) and I didn't have good subs on hand.I ended up eating what i made for them
Starting weight:241 current weight:179 Goal:150ish
restart:193 on August
mega goal : 170 : Combined weights of 3 pregnancies will be gone forever
mega goal : 150 :
mega goal : tone allover,close and repair my diastasis and hernia(down to 2" from 10")
Push yourself. Because no one else is going to do it for you.

We don't hold holidays at our house (they're both at my mom's house) and thankfully we've never had a lot of Christmas cookies around, so my fingers are crossed that I won't have to deal with anything too tempting.

My plan is to take LC stuffing, gravy, and dessert to the family dinners and just stick to it. There are two casseroles I'd normally eat: broccoli cheese casserole, which also has rice and Cheez Wiz, and spaghetti corn, which has what the title says and Velveeta. I haven't decided yet if I'll try to make some sort of alternative--for the broccoli, at least, I don't know how you would make spaghetti corn LC. But if not, I'm just going to avoid them. I know what they taste like, and I can make them once I'm much closer to my goal.

I've basically been able to find LC versions of everything I could possibly worry about - stuffing, cakes, crusts, etc etc. Every year our one friend brings buffalo chicken dip, which is actually not too terrible either - and the rest is veggies and turkey!

I'm just planning on avoiding the high-carb dishes. I'll have the deviled eggs, turkey, sweet potatoes, collards and green beans. That sounds so good, don't think I'll miss the rest!

I usually make a sugar loaded sweet potato casserole, but this year I'm going to try a new dish: sweet potatoes in large chunks, baked with bacon and lc syrup and fake sugar.

Thinking of making a green bean casserole.... maybe a low carb desert.

I really miss the cornbread dressing. Are there any good alternatives for it?

Haven't thought about Christmas yet.

My plan is to use lc recipes from some of the awesome bloggers out there. I'll get the turkey and ham from whole foods and we are making the sides. As far as treats go, lc pumpkin pie, Carolyn has a great cut out cookies recipe and candies. All low carb. So, there will be some of that. I am planning on making my girls lc Christmas platters.

I don't think we will miss is a thing.
