This Low Carb Holiday Cornbread Stuffing has all the traditional flavors and textures as regular bread filled stuffing but it’s gluten-free, grain-free, and keto friendly.
Yippie for 2021 Thanksgiving! We have so much to be thankful for. Our health, our families, and our baking skills (see what I did there (wink wink).) This keto stuffing recipe is going to be a favorite at your holiday gathering. It is super simple and has all the traditional flavors. If you are looking for a keto Thanksgiving recipe everyone will eat (without having to make 2 versions, a low carb AND a regular) this is it! This is a great keto dressing recipe loaded with veggies, flavor, and no guilt!
I want to take a moment to talk about why I like low carb/keto foods so much. I have a condition called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). I was diagnosed in 2013 when my husband and I began trying for a child. PCOS effects 1 in 8 women and is the leading cause of infertility in the world. It typically includes irregular periods and high androgen levels combined with weight gain.
For women affected by PCOS, changing to a ketogenic diet to reduce insulin levels may improve fertility. Most women often see weight loss results — which helps reduce PCOS symptoms — but women with PCOS also see improvements because the problem in PCOS is insulin resistance. If we/women are able to control our insulin resistance, then we are able to reduce many of our PCOS symptoms and complications…weight gain, DM2, high blood pressure, and (most importantly for me) infertility.
