Thanksgiving win



Recommended Posts

I had resigned myself to a very plain Thanksgiving meal this year when I decided to see if there were any good low carb chicken & dressing recipes online. I found one for “Southern chicken & dressing” and it was a huge success! (https://www.mytableofthree.com/low-carb-southern-dressing/)

My mom had laughed & said I’d probably be eating that on my own when I told her it involved almond flour as the main cornbread ingredient. It’s not low fat because it’s made with almond flour, coconut oil, & heavy cream but we aren’t exactly eating much right now. I even decided to sub low fat buttermilk for the heavy cream/vinegar combo it suggested & it was still fantastic. I couldn’t find oat Fiber so I just added the amount called for in more almond flour. I’m not supposed to have onions yet but I used a plain white onion & I didn’t end up with any gastrointestinal distress.
I cooked my chicken breasts in the Instant Pot so they wouldn’t dry out. The dressing was so moist & delicious, y’all!!! I hope your Thanksgiving was as wonderful as mine was!

Nice job! I actually like the taste and consistency of almond flour. I know a lot of people don't like it though... I miss dressing -- I used to cook it year round, so I will definitely try out your recipe.

I had a little regular dressing, two scoops of mashed potatoes & 2 scoops of corn casserole on Thanksgiving (plus turkey and asparagus) but I am 6 months out. I haven't gained anything yet although I know it takes a couple days to see the damage.. but I think I will be okay because that's really all I ate all day besides a Protein drink.

I am very strict with low carb/low sugar, so I figured one day won't hurt me too much!

I am on soft foods so I was able to eat 2 ounces of turkey mixed with gravy, a tablespoon of mashed potatoes and a tablespoon of cottage cheese. I didn’t have any issues. Yay!

Isn't is wonderful to get on the scale and see that it hasn't moved UP! I basically ate everything, but instead of 2 or 3 full plate loads, I had a salad plate with a little of everything....... but I couldn't finish it. Amazing, when I remember the volume I used to put away. I just LOVE my new life, my new body, and my new little pouch. I feel so NORMAL and that is such a strange feeling, but great!!!
