Quick Keto Ideas For Beginners

Quick Keto Ideas For Beginners

January 07, 2020

If you're new to the ketogenic (or keto) diet, it's important to understand how to build your meals so you eat a healthy balance of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Here are some healthy versions of quick Keto meals that make your life so much easier and tastier. 

 

 

Keto Fried Chicken

Who doesn't love fried chicken? In this Keto version, use almond flour and parmesan cheese instead of all-purpose flour. This way you keep the carbs low and your cravings happy. The best part is that it's not cheating!
 

Burgers Can Be Keto Friendly!

A flavorful burger topped with cheese, tomato, and a mouth-watering spread is always a winning combo. Wrap it up in a nice piece of lettuce and you won’t even miss the bun!

Whether you make it at home or order out, the lettuce wrap burger is a delicious meal that feels like you're not even dieting.

 

Still Hungry? Eat More Healthy Fats.

If you have trouble staying full on the keto diet, you may want to try adding more heart-healthy fats like those from avocados. These are stuffed with tuna and topped with sriracha for good measure.

 

Bacon or Sausage and Eggs

Sometimes the simplest breakfast option can be the most delicious, such as bacon or sausage and eggs. Eggs are real winners in the keto world. They’re extremely versatile, easy to cook, and have just half a gram of carbs but 6 g of protein and 5 g of fat.

 

Low Carb Keto Snacks

Some store-bought snacks even work well for people eating a keto diet. They save you time and can be packed for snacks on the road. Some ideas include:

  • String cheese
  • Beef jerky
  • Iced coffee (cold-brew coffee with unsweetened almond milk)
  • Nuts
  • Our very own Keto Bars!

Dining out may be a rare treat for some and a regular habit for others. In either case, if you decide to try the ketogenic diet, you'll probably limit your trips to your favorite fast-food restaurant's drive-through. However, this does not mean you cannot indulge once in a while. Changing your dietary habits drastically is usually the source of most failed diets. In a short period, your body does not have time to adjust to the change, leading you to revert to old habits as soon as possible.
