Keto Thanksgiving Menu

Paleolithic-Ketogenic DIet (PKD), Ketogenic Metabolic Therapies

Thanksgiving table
HAPPY KETO THANKSGIVING

I made a 3-course Keto Thanksgiving menu plan from my E-books for my friends who follow the Palaeolithic Ketogenic Diet.

The main ingredients are meat and fat, but I also included a side dish and a dessert. These can simply be left out by those who cannot or don't want to eat plants.

The whole menu can be consumed as OMAD, it has about 55 G protein, 100 g fat and 16 g carbohydrates per portion.

ENJOY!


The Starter - Breaded Bone Marrow

PKD, Keto, Carnivore, High-fat, No-carb, Plant-free

I love bone marrow and I love this "breaded" version of it too. This meal is mostly fat, it makes a great starter before the more protein-rich main course.

Ingredients

makes 4 servings

  • 8 small round marrow bones (15 g per piece)

  • 30 g pork greaves

  • 1 egg

  • Salt


Preparation

Blend the egg with the pork greaves and some salt. Push the marrow from the bones and dip into the the egg mixture.

Heat up 2 tbsp lard in a small deep pan and deep fry the marrows for about 2-3 minutes both sides, until golden.

Makes a great side dish to lean meat. One portion contains about 30 g fat and 4 g protein.


The Main Course - Carelian Hot Pot

PKD, Keto, Carnivore, High-fat, No-carb, Plant-free

This is a traditional, old fashioned dish from Finland. I modified it by leaving out the onions and the root vegetables and adding marrow bones for more taste and nutritional value. It's a delicious mixture of beef, lamb and pork.

CARELIAN HOT POT, KETO, CARNIVORE, PKD

Ingredients

Makes about 10 servings

  • 500 g beef stew meat

  • 500 g pork stew meat

  • 500 g lamb stew meat

  • 4 tbsp lard

  • 4-5 marrow bones

  • 200-300 ml bone broth

  • Salt

  • Pepper (optional)

  • 1-2 sprig rosemary (optional)


Preparation

Preheat the oven to 130 °C

Chop the meat into 3x3 cm pieces.

Melt the lard and pour into an oven dish. Add the mixed meat pieces, the bones and the spices.

Pour over as much broth that the meat is just covered.

Roast in the oven uncovered for about 5 hours, until the meat is tender and the upper layer is nicely coloured. .

You can also pre-fry the meat before roasting, but it is not necessary.



The Side Dish - Braised Red Cabbage

PKD

This is, of course, optional. Red cabbage is a nice winter dish for those who are healthy or recovered and like to eat some vegetables from time to time.

The Dessert - Layered Dessert Cream

PKD, Keto, High-fat


This delicious dessert is made with simple ingredients: eggs, berries and honey. On normal days we don't eat desserts but on certain occasions it's ok to make exceptions. This is by no means a must.
