What do you do with all your Christmas leftovers? Here are the best low carb Christmas leftover recipes, so nothing goes to waste and to help you keep on track. These are my favourites from around the world.
It seems many countries differ in what is considered a traditional roast Christmas meal. For many it is traditional to cook a turkey (as we do) but others like to cook roast beef, pork or ham, especially Americans who have just finished all their turkey from Thanksgiving.
Here in New Zealand, many will have a bbq as we are in the middle of summer. My best low carb Christmas leftover recipes cover turkey, pork, beef and ham. Most recipes are also very adaptable to whichever leftover meat you have.
