I’ve been keto now for almost 8 months. I had a little anxiety going to my in laws place for breakfast on Christmas, but it ended up being amazing! My mother in law who is the queen of cinnamon rolls and carby casseroles, made an amazing keto friendly breakfast for us. Bacon, eggs, and she even sautéed a bunch of spinach. It was great! They even got me a keto cookbook for Christmas! My mother in law was not supportive when I first started, so it’s really nice she seems to have turned a new leaf.
We then went to my parents’ place in the afternoon. My mom is a former dietician and recent keto convert. She made an entire low carb spread for the whole family! Turkey, low carb cranberry sauce, green beans cooked in butter, cauliflower mash and even a couple keto deserts. It was incredible!
I know a lot of people deal with families that are not supportive especially in the beginning. I’m feeling so blessed that everyone in my family is super cool about it now.
I’m curious, what was everyone else’s experience dealing with keto + family for the holiday?
