If you’ve been reading MomStart for a while, then you’ll know that we’ve been talking about our experiences with the keto diet for a few years now. The ketogenic lifestyle is amazing – but we all know that it can be challenging to stay on track during the holiday season. Are you looking for low-carb alternatives to traditional holiday recipes? Do you wish you could stuff your stockings with something that isn’t loaded with sugar? Maybe a loved one just went keto and you have no idea what to get them as a gift now, or you’re thinking about starting a ketogenic protocol in the New Year but are feeling overwhelmed. No matter where you fall in the carb continuum, this Keto Christmas Gift Guide can help! We’ve assembled all the best in keto foods, gifts, and helpers to make your holidays merry and bright. We even found keto-friendly cookies for Santa!
Ketogenic Christmas Dinner
Who says your holiday meal has to be high-carb? From tasty keto-friendly sauces and sides to gift-worthy kitchen gadgets, you can make your first keto Christmas dinner amazing for the whole family!
Psst: You won’t want to miss our Keto Lemon Garlic Turkey recipe, created using one of our Gift Guide picks, a Topsy Turkey roasting rack!
Our innovative roasting rack WILL create the best tasting Turkey and chicken you’ve ever had! Nothing like it on the market. It’s a science. With turkey lying on its back the traditional way, gravity is pulling moisture down, OUT of the breast meat, thus why we have all experienced dry white meat. Because most of the fat and juices are located on lower back of the bird, our roasting rack positions turkey breast side down at an angle which allows moisture to flow down INTO the breast meat, saturating it with juices. We’re Flippn’ the Bird to create a superior meal:
- Easier as it self-bastes throughout the entire cooking process
- The moistest white meat you’ve ever experienced
- Faster- cooks on average 15-20 min. faster

ZonePerfect Keto Shakes & Powders
To stay on track throughout the busiest season of the year, it’s important to stay hydrated, and shakes and powders are a great snack option for that. But, it’s important to look for ones that are high in fat and very low in carbs because not all keto products have the right macro ratio to support optimal ketosis and yield the best results. That’s why Abbott launched ZonePerfect Keto, which is made with 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carb – the ideal macro ratio that has been tied to effective weight loss by shedding more fat and less muscle.
ZonePerfect also allows you to indulge in sweet holiday treats without compromising on macros. Sip on a keto-approved peppermint latte by combining 1 packet of ZonePerfect Keto vanilla frosting powder, 8oz espresso, 1 tsp peppermint oil, 2 Tbsp whipped cream (beaten) and 2 sugar-free mints (crushed).
Any busy mom on-the-go knows that snacks have the potential to make or break a diet. Luckily, the ZonePerfect Keto shake is a convenient, portable option that comes in three delicious flavors: White Chocolate Coconut, Butter Coffee and Pineapple Coconut. Consider this year’s stocking stuffer shopping done! It’s the only true keto ready-to-drink option available nationwide at major retailers.

Alpine Start Coffee
Alpine Start was born out of a desire to make a great tasting, affordable instant coffee that you can take outside or on the go. The idea for an instant coffee that actually tasted good was conceived by our founder Matt Segal while on a climbing expedition to the Bugaboos of British Columbia. On returning to his home of Boulder, CO he enlisted natural food rock star, Alex Hanifin to help. Shortly after this dynamic duo of adventure athlete and foodie created our Original Blend of premium instant coffee. It's Instant Coffee That Actually Tastes Good™ and made from high quality, high altitude arabica beans. Today Alpine Start offers several flavors, all crafted with the same commitment to great tasting products made from simple, premium ingredients.

The Family-Friendly Keto Instant Pot Cookbook
Popular keto blogger Anna Hunley, of Keto In Pearls, presents scrumptious, family-friendly keto recipes for your Instant Pot. The ketogenic diet is taking the world of healthy eating by storm, but cooking for a ketogenic diet can be cumbersome. You can’t rely on processed or quick-cooking high-carb options, like pasta or rice, for a fast meal, and you don’t always have the time to labor over a hot stove.
The Family-Friendly Keto Instant Pot Cookbook helps you feed your family enjoyable low-carb meals quickly and effortlessly. With the Instant Pot’s ability to cook food in a fraction of the time, you’ll have your family sitting down at the table to eat in no time. (And with only one pot to clean too!)
Anna shows you how to unlock the versatility of your Instant Pot with over 100 flavorsome dishes like Enchilada Casserole, Coffee Rubbed Pulled Pork, Shrimp Étoufée, and Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake. All of the recipes are created with the author's trademark budget-friendly ingredients and kid-approved tastes.
The Keto For One Cookbook
With Keto For One, get 100 delicious dishes for every meal of the day—perfectly proportioned and macro-balanced. Single-serve cooking is one of the biggest challenges when trying to adhere to an eating plan. Most recipes are portioned for 4–6 servings, which means you’ll be eating the same thing for a week or trying to adjust recipes and struggling to figure out proper cooking times and fractions of measurements. With keto, you also have the additional challenge of balancing your macronutrients—a few too many carbs or not enough fat and your recipe is no longer in the ketogenic zone.
No more fussing with recipes. No more eating leftovers. No more wasted food (or money!). No more cobbling together snacks and calling it a meal. No more temptation to give into carb-laden, nutrient-void, single-serving convenience foods. Just delicious recipes from "low-carb queen" and best-selling author Dana Carpender. Enjoy delicious keto burgers and smoothies, as well as quick skillet stir-fries and plenty of tasty meals that can be pulled together quickly or ahead of time.
Quick Keto Meals in 30 Minutes or Less
Keto Meals in 30 Minutes or Less presents you with 100 delicious recipes rich with healthy fats—for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even snacks—that are quick, easy, varied, and delicious. The keto diet is being regarded as the go-to eating plan for weight loss, to keep blood sugar stable, or simply for staying healthy. However, adapting recipes to make them keto-friendly means adding cooking time, preparation, and, often, hard-to-find ingredients—challenges that are impossible to overcome when you need to get a meal on the table after a busy day. And even keto followers can't live on avocados and bacon alone.
Now you don't have to spend two hours making one meal! All of these ketosis recipes take a half hour to hit the table, can be made in large batches, or built into other dishes, like casseroles, slow cooker entrees, and more. Plus, all ingredients are easy to find, so there's no searching specialty stores.
Keto Fat Gram Counter
Need help figuring out what you can and can't eat on your keto diet? "Low-Carb Queen" Dana Carpender takes the guesswork out of knowing which foods are on or off the table with this handy little guide. This book includes a comprehensive directory of total fat, carbs, protein, fiber, and calorie amounts for countless types of food—from meat, fruits, and vegetables to popular packaged and restaurant foods.
Also included are the best keto/low-carb tips from the Low-Carb Queen herself. This is a perfect quick reference to help you balance your macronutrients for a successful keto/low-carb/intermittent fasting lifestyle. Grab this little book and carry it in your purse, pocket, or briefcase and you'll never struggle to stay keto.
The Keto All Day Cookbook
In The Keto All Day Cookbook, best-selling author and creator of the KetoDiet blog Martina Slajerova compiles her best recipes for every meal of the day (even snacks)—plus 17 new ones, accompanied by nearly 40 gorgeous new photos—to help you stay the keto course, deliciously! Enjoy tasty, flavorful recipes for snacks and meals, such Breakfast Egg Muffins, Pizza Waffles, Carrot Cake Oatmeal, Southern Duck Deviled Eggs, Eggplant Parma Ham Rolls, and Taco Frittata. Keto All Day even has recipes for delicious drinks and desserts, including Cookie Dough Mousse, Boston Cream Pie, and Raspberry Lime Electrolyte Cooler.

The Everything Keto Diet Meal Prep Cookbook
The keto diet is a healthy eating plan that is low in carbs, high in fats, and moderate in protein. This combination provides real fat-loss results as your body burns fat for fuel. It’s an easy diet to follow, but it requires advance planning to make sure all your meals contain the optimum balance to bring your body to the state of fat-burning ketosis. The best way to do this is to plan and prepare a week’s work of meals ahead of time so you always have a fully prepared breakfast, lunch, or dinner when it’s meal time.
