Pumpkin Pie is the best choice on Keto Diet and Thanksgiving !

In Canada, there is a Thanksgiving holiday in early October. This is all about the turkey and of course the pumpkin. The entrances to the houses are decorated with smaller or larger pumpkins and the festive tables are also decorated with pumpkin decorations, and the festive menu is sure to include at least one of a kind pumpkin dish. Pumpkin pie is one of the most common and popular desserts at Thanksgiving in North America.  Of course, I had to bake  a Low-carb, Gluten-free Pumpkin Pie with Cottage Cheese, and I also sewed ourselves some pumpkin table decorations, which you can see on my pictures near the pie.

I love pumpkin in all forms, whether it’s cream souppancakescoffee latte and even jam, or just roasted pumpkin On the other hand, my husband was so disgusted with the pumpkin unfortunately, so that he couldn’t even look at it, even though I had read him 3 pages about the benefits and health effects of the pumpkin, he simply refused to eat it until now. Two weeks ago, I made some dark chocolate bonbons with pumpkin cream stuffing, which he tasted as he didn’t see what’s inside…. and…., can you imagine it?! This pumpkin bonbon became his favorite!!! So, if I wanted him to try my pie as well, I had to make it exactly the same taste as my pumpkin bonbon, that’s why cottage cheese got in the pie as well.

Pumpkin on Keto? Yessss!

Basically, pumpkin is always a good choice in the keto diet, many types of squashes and pumpkins fit well because of its fundamentally low carb content. Although there are some very sweet varieties, such as Butternut or Delicata Squash,  100 g of most pumpkins contain around 5-10 g of carbs. I usually choose Acorn Squash, which has 8g of net carbs per 100g. The carb content of this Acorn squash is perfectly acceptable to me, but for whom, if this squash has a lot of carbs in it, choose the named “Pumpkin” variety, which contains only 5g in 100g (look at the picture).

Conclusion

Although, pumpkin is a "fruit" of the fall, and usually people create pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving in the fall season, you can eat pumpkin meals and pumkin pie in all year, if you put some prepared (pre-cooked) dose of pumkin into the deep freezer because pumpkin is a very healthy option to take natural nutritions without too much carbohidrate.
