Family-Friendly Keto Dinner Ideas

Family-Friendly Keto Dinner Ideas

January 25, 2021

Whether you are doing keto alone or as a family, it can be tough coming up with new recipes. Eating the same type of meal every week can get old very quickly. In this article, we will share some great dinner recipes that will spice up your keto diet. 

Children can be picky eaters in general, but add the extra variable of keto to the mix can be a task within itself. The trick to getting your kids to eat the keto-friendly meal is making them as similar to the meal they already enjoy.

Keto Nachos

Kids love nachos, and just because you are trying out keto doesn’t mean they can’t have nachos. You can substitute traditional tortilla chips with Genius Gourmet Keto Chips. You can go classic with our spicy nacho flavor with four great flavors or get adventurous with our chili lime.

1/2 cup of Chicken Breast
Two bags of Genius Gourmet Keto chips
1/4 cup Roma tomato (diced)
3 tbsp white Onion (Minced)
1/2 Avocado (diced)
One jalapeno, thinly sliced

1/4 cup Mozzarella Cheese (shredded)
