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.

    Would ghee be a good substitute for the lard in this recipe?

    Generally speaking, ghee or bacon fat will work as a sub for lard.

    What is a sheet pan please? From the UK never heard of that. Baking tray possibly?

    Yes, a baking tray will work just fine.

    What else can be used in place of lard? Can i use butter? I would think that coconut oil or bacon fat would change the taste? If I have to use lard where would I find that? Is it just on a shelf and says LARD on it? or would that be like Crisco or something like that?

    Bacon grease would be a good substitute for lard. Lard is rendered animal fat; Crisco is vegetable oil based and not a good option.

    One must be careful with lard. Much of the commercial contains other fats such as transfers as well as other adulterates. Read the list of ingredients carefully. Best to buy it from the meat counter or render your own.
