Thanksgiving question

Hey guys! With Thanksgiving coming up, I was wondering which foods that are usually on the table on this holiday have the most carbs in them.

In my experience, the potatoes and pie tend to be the two worst things.:rofl: I usually end up doing a massive dose of insulin and then still having to do more later… I guess it’s a work in progress?

depends on your family style of meals but here is where loads of sugar could be hidding:

Sweet potato(+45g per slice),
Pecan (+65g per slice)
Pumpkin pie (+46g per slice),
monkey bread ( +70g per piece)

Cranberry sauce (+25g per 1/4cup)
mashed potatoes (+35g per cup - but I was just looking at some boxes yesterday and saw much higher numbers than 35g per cup)

Im linking 3 websites, if maybe you would like try something different that isnt so loaded with sugar/carbs. Maybe offering to make one of the dishes (with your family or by yourself) may give you different options.

I know im older and love veggies, but I still focus on low-carb vegetable options.
A nice (different) salad
roasted non starchy vegetables that I love (I love love brussel sprouts, asparagus/ zucchini and small eggplants and make a treat out of it - I also drizzle homemade tehina mixed with some nutritional yeast on top of my veggies)

also, look at your favorite food, which may be a healthier option and ask if you could help make it

hope this helps!


Thanks Emet! These will no doubt help.
