So we cheat, then feel bad about it, then ride right into Christmas and repeat the cycle.
We tried to go low carb last Thanksgiving and that’s when we realized that it could be done. Unfortunately, we were enjoying the recipes so much that I didn’t take one photo to blog about! It was all that good.

This may be the best part for a lot of you Keto lovers. The options are endless which I never would have thought coming into this. I’m more of a savory person, however, Keto has given me an appreciation of sweets like I’ve never had before. I love desserts made with Swerve sweetener. It’s saved me so many times!
