Healthy Christmas Recipes
A Funny thing happens when you truly crack the code for low-carb and carnivore. The need for “special” foods is entirely eradicated.
When you connect the dots between the eating habits in society (as well as the types of food for each special occasion), you realize that all these food items that supposedly “bring people together,” are nothing more than addictive foods.
What you might consider fun or festive – or possibly might even have “strong memories” about – is nothing but a scam you were duped into.
And it is certainly next to impossible to disconnect people from their cognitive biases. Like David and Goliath.
Holiday foods are unnecessary
Seriously – the quality of food you eat doesn’t have to waver because of a holiday. Whether it’s Christmas or Cinco de Mayo. Doesn’t matter. All those holidays really just give everyone a lame excuse to eat poorly.
“Oh, it’s the holidays – I’ll have more gingerbread cookies.” Or whatever the reasoning is.
Why we need to “pair” the nutrition and fuel our bodies need with some convoluted holiday has become ridiculous in our minds. Just because it was done for generations before our time is not an acceptable justification. It’s a weak response, actually.
We do understand, though. Human tradition and all these other things have been part of our society for a long time. Some might even say “what’s the harm,” or “all in good spirit.”
But if you want to be healthy – the novelty of food types and special occasions should not derail your efforts.
Low Carb and Healthy Christmas Recipes
Visit one of our go-to low carb cooking sites Ditchthecarbs.com. They have a whole big spread of low carb holiday recipes you can make if you still want to remain “traditional” and not kill your blood sugar levels. Too many to list here. (Note that they include low-carb alternatives to holiday “sweets,” which we’d most likely avoid if we were you. Sending sweet signals to your brain is probably not a good idea – regardless of the source.)
We’ll still stick with our everyday red meat fix and not obsessively think about food like most other people. No special holiday twist is required!
However, here is our top pick from that collection of low-carb holiday dishes you can choose from:
Curried Deviled Eggs Recipe
We tailored the recipe for SIX eggs – adjust as necessary!
- 6 eggs – medium
- 12 tsp mayonnaise
- 1.5 tsp curry powder or more to taste
- pinch salt to taste
Boil the eggs. Once cold, scoop out the yolks and mix with mayonnaise and curry powder. Then spoon or pipe the yolk mixture back into the cooked egg white. Garnish and enjoy!
That’s it. So simple, it’s actually almost stupid to post. But as we said – there really is no real NEED for “special” foods. Despite what we have all experienced throughout our lives. It’s almost sacrilegious to challenge this narrative. But we are not afraid to buck the trend and go against the grain.
You’ll be along our side eventually. It just might be prudent to jump on the bandwagon sooner rather than later.
