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.

    Pretty bland. I added a touch of ACV with the mother and some mustard for flavor. I also add @ 1/8 tsp caraway seeds as well.

    Bland? The clue is in the name. Great to have a simple, creamy coleslaw that complements other dishes.

    What is "the mother" in the keto diet??

    The "mother" is that cobweb-like cloud that develops in the apple cider vinegar.

    Another bland slaw recipe because it doesn't include the PURGE. Cabbage needs to be purged or it will be overly crunchy and bland from the water in the cabbage diluting the spices and not allowing the flavor to develop.
