The Holidays are right around the corner and with the Holidays comes dinners and parties with family and friends. Typically, this is an excuse to ditch the diets and savor all of our favorite cheat treats.

- BBQ Pot Roast – Our list wouldn’t be complete WITHOUT BBQ. I know it seems like BBQ has no place in a Keto diet but with this recipe, you make the BBQ sauce using Splenda. If artificial sweeteners aren’t your thang then experiment using stevia.
Many of these recipes use traditional store bought (not grass-fed or grass-finished) chuck roasts so you’ll need to adjust your cooking time just a little bit. Remember, there’s less fat in 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef so it requires less cooking time. In general, it takes 30% less time to cook it. Typically when using a slow cooker you don’t have to worry too much about that reduced time, but it’s work checking it. For example, if the recipe calls for 4 hours of slow cooking you’ll want to check it around 3 hrs and 30 minutes. More than likely, you’ll find it tender and ready to eat.
