With Diet Doctor Plus you get access to tons of keto meal plans, including dairy-free and vegetarian versions, meal plans adapted for intermittent fasting, quick-and-easy and budget keto meal plans. Below, see our latest one.

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.

    I really appreciate this sight and everything you do for us to make this way of life easier and delicious. The only thing I’d like to see change is:

    When I’m reading or looking at a picture of meal plans I’d like to be able to press on the picture of the food and have the recipe come up straight away. It doesn’t, tho, when you’re looking at a picture of a keto meal plan, before you go into the recipe section. Often that picture was an example of the recipes and is set out Monday, Tuesday etc, but has no recipe there and no name on the dish and so when you get into recipes you need to look through them all to find that picture again. I’m sorry if this sounds rambling. It’s a bit hard to explain. If I’m looking for something that looks delicious and I’m not following weekly plans, this little hiccup is a little bit frustrating. Otherwise, thank you all for your massive effort. I am a happy Australian dietdoctor member.

    Deli Turkey has maize starch in it - maize (corn) is not keto and high carb!

    I love this recipe ❤️

    You know, you can buy quality meat without the sugars. Come on, help yourself out a little before discrediting all the work Diet Doctor does.

    Can I replace the turkey with deli chicken slices?

    You can substitute with any deli meat you prefer, just make sure and watch out for added sugars and starches.
  9. Tamara
    Each serving was surprisingly very filling! As for the deli meat, you can find great quality at Whole Foods or similar stores.

    When I review what is in the meal, the avocados alone have a significant amount of carbs in them? Is this truly the right items to be eating?

    This total meal is 9g net carbs. The recipe as written makes 2 servings.

    Do we skip lunch? For example, It's Tuesday and no picture and recipes for that day... what we do?

    I'm not sure which meal plan you are following, but lunch is almost always leftovers from dinner the night before.

    You guys are doing us a huge favor posting these low-carb meal ideas. It's very hard to find a site, that will post DELICIOUS, low-carb meals.... all for nothing.
    Ignore the negativity. Many of us greatly appreciate what you guys are doing!

    The 9g of carbs is for 1 portion?

    The 9g of carbs is for 1 portion?

    This is 6g net carbs per serving, not 9. The number in the green circle indicates the carb count.

    Many of us greatly appreciate what you guys are doing! I am grateful for the idea's, and it does require research and work on my part as well. If you want to get into Ketosis, read what foods to dive you into that, but you can NOT do all Protein and zero Carb's forever you jeopardize kidneys. Avocado is a great and approved KETO food because of the nutrient's it provides as well as...yes...that awful word CARBS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gotta throw the good carbs in there at various points, NO SUGAR, RICE, BREADS that turn to bad carb's …..welcome to Chemistry 101 LOLOL You will figure out what will work for you with the help from this site. Best of Luck to all of us trying to loose weight, we are not alone :)

    Is there a good substitute for the avocado? Unlikely I can buy one ready to eat.

    Hi everyone,
    I upped my "servings" to 3 because there are 3 of us that will be eating the meals in the menu plan, however, when I went to cook the meals, I saw that the actual recipe as "Instructions for 2 servings" on it. In my case of planning my meals for 3 people, does this mean that the love recipe should serve 6 people...????? I am possibly overthinking it, but I am a lille confused. Any help would be most appreciated, thanks!

    If you cook only from the Recipes tab in your meal plan, everything will be correct when you make sure you've got the right number of people. If you click through to the actual recipe page then you may need to adjust the number of servings. For 3 people for a lunch with no leftovers, this would be set to 3 servings.

    Very easy lunch to bring to work. I had mixed in dried parsley, dill, chives, garlic and onion with the cream cheese for celery sticks.
  23. Joan
    Great, filling lunch! Unfortunately, I forgot to check the label on the deli turkey, which has modified food starch. Next time I'll choose more carefully!

    Yes, that would be fine in the same amount.

    Cottage cheese will have more fat than cream cheese. Perhaps high fat ricotta?

    Super simple and surprise tasty. Avocado have for whatever reason started giving me pretty severe heartburn so I replaced it with some poached eggs and it seemed to work well.

    That is an excellent alternative!

    There are absolutely deli meats out there without sugar and dextrose in them. It is up to you to make sure you are buying appropriate keto foods.

    Would it be ok to add a splash of Apple Cider Vinegar to the greens and avocado for a bit of acidic balance of flavours?

    That sounds like a delicious addition to this plate.
