Make Your Own : Banting Christmas Buffet!

The holidays have rolled around again, and it's almost Christmas Day when family descends upon us and fills our lunch/dinner tables with laughter and good cheer.  For the cooks amongst us, its our job to fill the tables in front of them with delicious meals.

With the rise and rise of Banting in 2014, it may very well be the first Christmas that a lot of people look at their usual Christmas lunch recipes and think "Well, what now?"

Butternut is out, Pumpkins, Potatoes and Pastries are out.  What do we replace them with?

Never fear, (well, sometimes fear, but at least reserve it for things that are actually scary) The Bant Wagon has prepared a few options for you to choose from.  Starters, Mains, Desserts, Side Dishes, they're all here!  

Feel free to use them all or just pick and choose whichever ones you think would add to your already delicious lunch plans!
