Easy Keto Dessert: Low Carb Lime Cheesecake
Low-Carb Easter Dinner Menu Ideas
Luckily, there are many easy low-carb options that are sure to impress your Easter guests. From main dishes to desserts, let's explore ways you can feed everyone while ensuring it's healthy and diet friendly.
Traditional Main Dishes
Any main dish can be used for Easter, but some are more traditional than others. Turning your favorite lamb or ham into a low-carb delight is rather easy.
Lamb is an excellent choice because it usually isn't served with a lot of sugar. Use your favorite recipe or look for those with a simple herb rub like a .
Ham is a slightly different matter because sweet glazes are so popular. Begin by seeking out a ham that isn't sugar-cured or baked in honey. You can use a low sugar or sugar-free jam (apricot jam or orange marmalade work well) as the basis for your own glaze or simply use it as a substitute for sugary jams in a recipe. Another option is to go with a savory mustard-glazed ham recipe.
When serving, you can also look for the slices of a regular glazed ham that have a minimum amount of glaze. It's also easy to cut it off altogether once it hits your plate.
Other Main Dishes
Roasted meats, such as roast pork, pot roast, or roast beef are other good choices for Easter.
One welcome development around Easter is that we are starting to turn away from the starchy vegetables of winter towards the lighter vegetables of spring. Take advantage of this by serving salads or cooked spring vegetables.
If you are looking for a potato substitute, rutabagas are a good choice. Rutabagas are related to the turnip and sometimes called "yellow turnips." However, they are milder and a bit sweeter, with a hint of spice. They also contain less than one-third the carbs of potatoes. Oven-roasted rutabaga fries are a perfect introduction to this veggie.
There are no real rules for Easter dessert, so feel free to use your favorite low-carb recipes. Need some ideas to get started? We have a few ideas:
