Good food is not just for Thanksgiving, you can XTEND the culinary delights of the day and create Ruth’s easy Keto, and you guessed it, throw it all in the Crock Pot, leftover casserole. You’ll want to save any leftover vegetables and cooked meats, and in addition, you will be throwing in half an onion, bell pepper, and a handful of other Keto-friendly ingredients.
The best thing about this leftover casserole is that it is another quick and easy crockpot recipe, giving you time to spend with your family, go for a walk or have a little time out after the busy day of Thanksgiving. As a Keto-friendly recipe, you won’t be surprised to find a can of coconut milk in the mix, a popular ingredient for those following a Ketogenic diet. Coconut milk1 is a resource for reducing inflammation in the body, and some studies2 suggest that the Ketogenic diet, in general, could help people suffering from long term pain conditions, depression and could even be good for neurological health.3
