Kristie's tips!

This can be made ahead of time by at least a day or two. You can also make the cranberry sauce ahead of time and mix it with the remaining ingredients later.

Garnish with orange zest, freshly whipped cream or a sprinkle of pecans.

Add some orange extract or oil for extra flavor.

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: 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.

    This was included in vegetarian recipes - vegetarians don’t use gelatine- as it’s an animal by product.

    But vegetarian gelatine is easy to get - at least it is here in the uk.

    The app version of this recipe does not include the orange extract. I have noticed there are a couple of other recipes on the app that are missing ingredients. Just FYI.
