Keto: Budget-friendly #3

Keto doesn’t have to be expensive. With a little planning and know-how, you can be both keto and thrifty! This week we’ve focused on cheaper yet still very tasty ingredients. We also use the same ingredients in more than one meal so you can buy them in bulk.

To cut your costs even more, buy regular cheese, especially on sale, rather than specialty cheeses that are much more pricey. Don’t buy pre-­shredded cheese; buy cheese in large or bulk sizes and shred/grate it yourself.  Shredded cheese can be frozen in small batches for quick use and no risk of spoilage. Use fresh vegetables when they are in season, but buy frozen the rest of the year. Frozen meats, too, are usually cheaper. Here you’ll find more money saving low-carb tips.

A tip to save some precious morning time is to prepare the Keto eggs on the go on the Sunday afternoon or on the Monday morning, and then have them ready for a fast breakfast each day of the week.

This meal plan will keep you below 18 net carbs per day.

Keto: Dairy free #6

Following a healthy dairy-free diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — and this week’s meal plan is proof of that.

On the menu, we have some spice-heavy keto dishes like our Sindhi-style lamb curry. Additionally, there are some quick and easy weeknight favorites such as our tasty tuna zoodle salad and chicken stir-fry.

While following this plan, if you’re not a big fan of certain ingredients, feel free to swap them. If, for example, you don’t enjoy eating lamb, you could always substitute it for chicken or beef.

The same goes for vegetables. If there’s something you don’t fancy, change it for another low-carb veggie. Check out our visual vegetable guide for more inspiration.

Get ready to enjoy some of our favorite keto meals while staying below 20 grams of net carbs per day.

Keto meal plan: A week of OMAD #2

You’ve probably heard of “One meal a day” (OMAD) fasting, where — as the name suggests — you eat just one time per day to achieve safe and effective weight loss.

With this OMAD meal plan, you’ll do just that. This week, we’ve created a stellar lineup of nutritionally balanced, delicious meals that are sure to stave off any hunger pangs. And you’ll also consume less than 20 grams of net carbs per day. How great is that?

Remember, it’s important to keep up your hydration while following OMAD. Drink lots of water — and you’ll be glad to hear that black coffee and tea are fine, too.
