7 low carb hygge recipes

Hygge is a Danish lifestyle trend, pronounced as “hoo-gah”. Hygge is defined as a feeling of cozy contentment and well-being by embracing the simple things in life. And those Danes may know a little bit about contentment, as they are a considered some of the happiest people in the world according to global happiness surveys.  

So, how do you hygge? Start by putting your electronics aside (although you might find plenty of hygge inspiration on your Instagram feed), grab your coziest throw blanket, snuggle up with your loved ones, light some candles and enjoy twinkling holiday lights and a toasty fireplace while sipping on mugs of warm, comforting drinks and enjoying spice-infused baked goods. It’s these simple moments that hopefully let the stress of the holiday season fall from your shoulders.  

Atkins has plenty of low carb hygge-worthy recipes that will allow you to enjoy this opportunity to slow down and take care of yourself. You can start by sipping
