Giant Keto and Paleo Recipe Collection for your Christmas Day Menu

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

The Paleo and Keto diets are becoming more popular these days when it comes to a healthier a lifestyle. I got the help of one of the ladies in my office for this post who follows the Keto diet. We have put together a giant Christmas Day menu for both the Paleo diet and Keto diet. What many of you might not know, is that so many recipes with these two lifestyles actually cross over and what is classified as a Keto recipe, can also be a Paleo recipe and vice versa. The only difference is the rules of when you can eat on the Keto diet.  Something else that I find interesting, are the myths of these two diets. So that I don’t offend anyone with recipes that might not meet your personal Paleo or Keto standards, I thought I’d cover some of the rules. Here’s my list of things to remember when you look at these recipes:

  1. Some people include cheese and dairy products when living a Paleo or Keto lifestyle, while others don’t. I will add cheese, butter and ghee recipes in this recipe collection, so it’s up to you which recipes suit your rules.
  2. The great Quinoa debate. Is it or isn’t it? I will go with accepted so if you see any quinoa recipes, it’s up to you.
  3. Potatoes, yes or no? I will go with yes since new rules have come in that small quantities are now accepted.

So without further ado, let’s see how we went with finding recipes that would be great as part of your 2018 Christmas banquet, whether you’re Paleo or Keto. For all you Palaeolithic and Ketogenic foodies out there, we hope that this post brings inspiration and smiles to your Christmas dinner table this year.

If you have a favourite recipe, please leave it in the comments below!!

PALEO CHRISTMAS BREAKFAST MENU IDEAS

Paleo Satay Avocado Prawn Omelette

Loaded with lots of delicious ingredients, this Paleo Satay Avocado Prawn Omelette would be such a lovely Christmas breakfast feast for your family and guests. Christmas is a time for seafood, so why not eat prawns for breakfast or brunch on Christmas Day.

Such beautiful colours for the eyes and yummy ingredients for your taste buds in this Paleo Blueberry Coconut Souffle Bake. I really want to try this one. I already have my Christmas Menu sorted, but this could be one for Boxing Day morning. Whoever said that healthy food can’t taste good too.

Dairy Free Frittata With Heirloom Tomatoes

I just love quiches and frittatas. Eggs are such a special staple food, and since so much more is known about them these days, they are quite healthy for you. Look at this yummy Dairy Free Frittata with Heirloom Tomatoes recipe. What a lovely Christmas Day breakfast this would make.

Paleo Cranberry Bars

Honestly, you can’t get more Christmassy than Cranberries. These Paleo Cranberry Bars remind me of a German strudel, and would not only look good at breakfast, but they would also taste good, and they’re definitely healthy with the ingredients used.

Black Forest Paleo Pancakes

How decadent do these Black Forest Paleo Pancakes look? Wow, my mouth waters just looking at this image. They almost look like edible Christmas trees stacked up like this with the cherries and cream on top. And if you’re about to say that the cream is not healthy, it’s actually made from coconut lol. How awesome is that!!

KETO CHRISTMAS BREAKFAST MENU IDEAS

Easy Green Keto Smoothie

Keto Candied Pecans

These just grabbed my attention as soon as I saw the photo. They reminded me of my Nuts n Bolts recipe, although my recipe isn’t paleo or keto approved, which is why I thought that these Keto Candied Pecans could also be made for any guests following these diets. Why not make both to make everyone happy.

Turkey Egg Breakfast Skillet

Yum!!! Skillets and Hashes always provide you with a hearty breakfast and are very popular with both Paleo and Keto diets. Beef mince is usually used in this kind of recipe, but I found this particular recipe uses turkey. I thought that since turkey is a Christmas tradition, why not try this Turkey Egg Breakfast Skillet.

Kale and Pomegranate Salad

I just love the colours in this Kale and Pomegranate Salad. It just looks so inviting to eat and would look amazing alongside a Christmas Turkey. Pomegranate might be hard to find right now, but you could substitute with slices of blood oranges that would also taste and look good.

Keto Apple Slaw

Salads are such an important side on the Christmas table and this Keto Apple Slaw really looks so good. I feel that the apple in it would give the salad that sweet festive taste too. The best thing about this one is that being Keto, there is no sugar. I would also recommend making some homemade mayonnaise too.

Blueberry Galette

I just love blueberries and this Blueberry Galette looks so yummy. The way the berries ooze out of the crust makes you want to grab a spoon and just go for it. Any kind of berries just make a Christmas, so I think that no one would be complaining if this was placed on the Christmas dinner table for dessert.

Keto Trifle

I make my mum’s Summer Berry Trifle that isn’t Keto or Paleo each year, but for those who have allergies to certain foods and can’t eat it, I thought I would see if I could dig up a Keto-approved Trifle for you, and would you believe that I found one? Here’s the Keto Trifle which looks pretty good and works well for anyone who has to follow a Keto diet.

Low Carb Jelly Slice

I thought that these Low Carb Jelly Slices were such a fun and Christmassy looking dessert that would go down very well with the kids on Christmas Day. They would also go well with a coffee for the adults as a late evening dessert snack for anyone still wanting some food decadence.

Don’t these Baked Brie and Cranberry Festive Cups just look amazing. I think you could make these for any occasion really.
