Wonderful Bone Broth

Crock Pot

Lower Carb Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

I’d like to say we enjoyed a low-carb Thanksgiving, but I’d be telling a half-truth. Actually, we enjoyed a lower carb Thanksgiving. I modified the ingredients in some foods and didn’t cook others to reduce the carb load. However, not everyone at my Thanksgiving table is on a low-carb eating plan so I made a… Read More
