It can be difficult to adhere to a low carb lifestyle while celebrating your favorite holidays. Potlucks, parties, and ubiquitous cookies and desserts can create added temptations, but there are low-carb recipes that can substitute for just about anything. Below are 10 low carb recipes that will please the whole family!

A note for safety: We do not recommend that people with diabetes or prediabetes make large-scale dietary changes without medical supervision, especially if taking medications for diabetes or blood pressure. Reducing carbohydrate consumption can decrease blood glucose and blood pressure, and a physician can help safely adjust medications so that blood glucose or blood pressure don’t get too low. Hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) and hypotensive (low blood pressure) episodes can be very dangerous.
