Give Thanks for These Low-Carb Thanksgiving Recipes!

'Tis the Season!

For all the pumpkins, spices, crackling fires and... The Thanksgiving Dinner. Many see Thanksgiving as the ultimate holiday -- family, friends(giving), football, Black Friday sales -- what's not to love?

But for us PWD (people with diabetes), the Thanksgiving meal has the potential to be a major stressor.

All those carbs floating around (sourdough bread stuffing, sweet buttered rolls, endless cranberry fixings, the list is long...) will send our sugars soaring and put us in the ultimate post-meal food-coma.

But this year, that doesn't have to be the case! We've hunted down some of the best low-carb, low-sugar Thanksgiving dishes out there, and there are some seriously good eats to choose from.

No need to fret over the feast! These recipes are sure to keep you and your blood sugars happy and healthy. Winner, winner, chicken(turkey)-dinner!
