Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Fry the bacon over medium heat until crispy.

Walnuts, Brazil nuts, pecans, and macadamia nuts are all lower-carb nut choices. Feel free to swap in your favorite. See our guide to nuts for more details. Also, you can dry roast your nuts (about an hour in a 250°F/120°C oven) in batches for more crunch. Don't forget to add a little salt right after roasting!

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    Isnt this expensive way to eat?
    I'm on my own on a budget?I hate almond( it's in loads) and nuts,

    It not expensive at all, most of the ingredients are bought once, keto diet is so simple, it allows you to scramble thru your cupbosrd and fridge and freezer and you will find most stuff. And you can still be able to follow a strict keto diet. I am also on a budget and managing fine. Coconut milk is main ingredient for smoothies and I buy from Aldi and stock up it’s cheap too. Just look for recipes that you can afford. If I can do it you can too, you wil be amazed st the difference it makes to yr health. Enjoy

    Is the meat measured before or after it’s cooked?

    Meat measurements are always given pre-cooked.

    Could the photos please match the recipe? The recipe states "1 green bell pepper" but there are three different smaller peppers on this plate.
