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.

    My whole family enjoyed this recipe. However, we felt that there was a bit too much butter. Other than that, a delicious, low carb dinner for all!

    A workmate is wondering if you can swap the blue cheese for any other kind of cheese like feta or cream cheese if you are not partial to blue cheese.

    Feta would be a better sub for blue cheese since it is the same consistency.

    I always drain my beef as I use 85/15. If you use a leaner beef, you may not need to drain.
