Banting Christmas Lunch

‘Tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la… ‘tis also the season where we tend to overindulge and pack on the unnecessary kilos. That’s why this year we’re singing, “Deck the halls with bowls of cauli” and doing Christmas, Banting-style.

To avoid rolling your way into the New Year, we’ve got a special Banting Christmas menu for you that even Santa will be envious of.

Whether you’re entertaining or having an intimate family celebration, this low-carb menu packs in all the delicious yumminess of Christmas, without the guilt.

If you’re going to get through countless Boney M songs, there’s only one way to start the festivities and that’s with a delicious, creamy cup of spiced-Christmas cheer.
