When we think of keto, most of us think first of simple ketogenic meals or of fat based ketogenic diet or even ketogenic diet foods for weight loss. After you’ve been on the keto lifestyle diet awhile, your questions will go from simple carbs in cocktail sauce to questioning if there are low carb alcoholic cocktails. Drinking on a ketogenic diet should be done cautiously. Especially for those of you unfamiliar with the rules of alcohol and keto.

Most of us plan our Christmas menus well in advance of the actual day. It takes a lot to pull off a meal of this magnitude. Whether your first foray into making Christmas dinner or even a pro, I am here to share my biggest tip which is making as much as possible in crock pots. I’ve done my sides in crock pots as well as appetizers to graze on waiting for the big meal. I personally own 4 but have also borrowed from those who came to our meal. They were happy to since they did not have to cook! If you like this idea and try out some recipes, let me know what you enjoyed! I love hearing from my readers and seeing pics they share!
So sit back, plan your crock pot menu and let those crocks do the work!
