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.

    Another option for some or all of your bacon is to process it when semi frozen or very cold in a food processor until minced then mix into your ground beef and season as you like, then cook the burgers. SO good!

    I just started the 2 week challenge today and had these for supper. I made the patties and my Dad did them on the grill for me; yummy! I used Portobello mushrooms and the taste was great. I didn't miss the bun taste wise, but I did mess wise, lol. I used romaine lettuce instead of leaf lettuce and it kept breaking on me. Next time I'll try making the oopsie bread. I made two plain patties with no spices for my dogs, and they were thrilled, lol.

    I use ground Bison and because it is drier than Beef I add a couple tablespoons Olive Oil per pound of meat when I am gently mixing it. This would work with ground beef too. I also almost always cook my meats in saved (organic free range) bacon fat.

    What percentage of fat in the beef do I buy?

    Here's a question: do you have a recipe for home cured bacon that is sugar free? Most store bought bacon has sugar and nitrates in it, other bacon that's bought in health food stores is also cured in sugar. Even my local butcher's bacon that's cured on site has sugar in it. Other recipes that I've found online call for several cups of sugar or maple syrup. Really, really trying to avoid the s-words in all their forms.

    I need a substitution for mushrooms. Also, I don't eat seafood. Could I just substitute another protein for any fish recipe? THANK YOU!!!

    Why are all the servings auto set to 4 and how come you don’t specify on how much grease or oil to use to fry ??

    When I went to my Weight loss doctor and told her I was having a hard time finding the pshyllium husk she laughed at me. You can find it in any store. It really is Metamucil. Just make sure it is the generic brand, no taste and it is pure pshyllium husk. I didn't have a problem finding it then.
    Just for everyone's information.

    I modified this recipe a bit so that I had hamburger patties. The texture of food is important to me.
    So, I mixed chopped smoked bacon, finely chopped onion and two slices of keto bread, crumbled,with the ground beef and shaped into patties.
    Cooked for 12 minutes each side and put cheese on 1 minute before serving.
    Used up some Portobello mushrooms that I had left over from a previous recipe and served the burgers on top them with salad on the side.
    Husband gave thumbs up!,

    Yes. Try it. It's a very healthy way to eat

    How much is 1/4 iceberg lettuce in grams?

    Since the lettuce is being used as a wrap for this recipe, the size/shape of the leaves is more important than the weight. You will use about 3 leaves per serving.
