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'm a bit confused. Some of your recipes are considered "moderate" low carb and some are labeled
    "liberal" and yet the nutrition brake down is almost identical. So how do I figure out what's really what?

    I couldn't find the pointed cabbage; did use the green one and cut it exactly to this; followed the recipe to the letter and when I went to eat the cabbage, it was not cooked all the way through(YES, I did follow the instructions carefully) and it tasted disgusting. Maybe the cabbage was hard to begin with. Just know I had to throw it out.

    Cold butter grated on cold cabbage just rolls off. I baked the cabbage for 15 minutes and melted the butter, pored on once the cabbage opened up and baked anther 15 minutes then added the cheese and baked another 15 minutes. This recipe cannot have kitchen tested.
