- 1Healthy Fat
You'll find a lot of cauliflower alternatives when it comes to low-carb Thanksgiving side dish recipes, Christmas side dish recipes, and gluten-free meals in general. I've undoubtedly shared my fair share of cauliflower dishes on this blog, but until now, none of them had been coupled with a recipe for smooth, flavorful, filling sauce!
Without mashed potatoes and gravy, what would the Holiday season be? Nothing beats heaping a plate with all your faves and sprinkling gravy. This creamy cauliflower mash pairs well with a roasted or smoked turkey breast. Your Thanksgiving visitors won't even realize that this dish for Creamy Cauliflower Mash with Pan Gravy is a low-carb alternative since it tastes so much like the real thing.

About Chris Sloan
My name is Chris Sloan and I, like so many others, struggled with my weight for years, not realizing the toll being overweight was taking on my body. At the beginning of 2021, I began to take my weight loss efforts seriously and have lost 75 lbs so far on the plan. It's been amazing, and while my journey isn't over, I'm well on my way!
When I started, I had a hard time finding the top 5 and 1 recipes, so I was so inspired to build this website to help compile some of what I felt are the best recipes around. I'm happy to share it with you as well!
For those new to the plan, weighing your food is an integral part of the program; it's one of the critical elements. If you want to be successful, you need to ensure that each meal has been weighed according to the guidelines. And we're not talking about "close enough." We mean EXACTLY those amounts! So forget about using a measuring cup or even eyeballing it—you need a food scale!
We've worked hard to make sure that all recipes listed are approved for the plan.
The recipes on this site are intended for those on plan; however, they can easily be adapted to a low-carb or keto lifestyle. If you are following a ketogenic or low-calorie diet, you can enjoy many recipes found here to help keep you on track for your weight loss efforts.
