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.

    We had this for dinner last night. So delicious and easy to make. I did amp up the green beans and added some bacon, cooked the beans in the grease from the bacon too. Beautiful crisp beans, salty bacon bits with a spicy chicken breast. We used Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasonings, zero carbs for the seasoning.

    Super easy and delicious supper. I like that you can adjust the servings on the recipe. Sometimes I feed my family what I'm having, sometimes not. Thank you #dietdoctor.

    Some people think green beans are no good for keto because they're legumes?....x

    Where do you find your rotisserie chicken?

    Many grocery stores carry them pre-cooked in the deli section.

    I have adjusted the recipe to show 2 servings. The recipe shows we're to eat 1 lb of chicken between the two of us. Is that correct? Or is that 1 lb for dinner and lunch the next day? Serving sizes are confusing...I need some clarity?

    Hi Tammy, I have asked the recipe team for assistance with this recipe. For 2 people, you could cook 2 skin on chicken breasts or thighs.

    What can I substitute the butter for, for a non-dairy option? Is margarine comparable?

    Hi Sarah, margarine would not be a great substitute as it is heavily processed. In our dairy-free collection you can find some alternatives listed in the opening text! https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes/dairy-free.

    Some who are dairy-free find that including butter is okay as it only contains trace amounts of milk protein and sugar. Those who cannot or chose not to include butter may substitute ghee or coconut/olive oil for instance. Hope this helps!

    Do you just eat the butter raw? half a stick of butter for each serving?

    If you put it on the green beans, especially if it's at room temperature, it will melt! No need to eat raw butter.
