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.

    I made this dish last night to rave reviews. The zucchini fries were fantastic, and even a hit with my very picky 11 year old son who will do anything to keep from eating any sort of vegetable whatsoever. My husband prepared the hamburger patties, adding his own selection of spices to punch up the flavor of the beef. Will definitely make this recipe again.

    I am confused about vegetables, how can i estimate them cause one Zucchini can be 200g and another one can be 50g and same for onions, is it possible that recipes contain all veggies by weight.

    This meal was delicious, truly, BUT it took my son and I one hour of hands on time, NOT 10 minutes!! And it is in Quick and Easy Meal Plans #4 ... please change the prep time and move it from that meal plan. Though delicious, it made for a really stressful evening, not a quick and easy one! Thank you!

    Is there another cheese I can substitute for the goat cheese.
  6. Julie
    I didn't love it. It took a long time to cut and dip the zucchini and wasted quite a bit of the parmesan cheese and almond flour. I'm glad I tried it anyhow. I don't like goat cheese so used something like swiss instead.
