Team Diet Doctor: Kate Nordin’s favorites

Keto-Meal-plan-team-dd-Kate-Nordin-

For this week’s meal plan, Kate Nordin, senior content manager on our recipe team, shares some of her favorite breakfast, lunch, and dinner ideas.

As a busy working mom to three young children (all under 5), Kate, who’s also a qualified nutritionist, has learned to master time-saving techniques in the kitchen.

Here, she shares her top recipe picks — all of which will keep you at under 20 grams of net carbs per day!

When preparing meals, Kate always keeps feeding the whole family in mind — except, of course, on days when she enjoys both the benefits and time saved from intermittent fasting.

Given Kate’s background in nutrition, she’s familiar with a range of tasty low-carb and keto recipes. Lucky for us, she’s included her favorites in this week’s meal plan.

For breakfast, you’ll find Kate’s favorite coconut pancake recipe, which is fan-favorite at her house on the weekends. For dinner, she’s included plenty of healthful options, including salmon with crispy herb and walnut crust, keto pizza, and chicken Provençal.

With each of these simple, family-friendly meal ideas, you’ll enjoy how amazing they taste. And you’ll love that you’re actually spending less time in the kitchen than usual.

And remember: With this week’s lineup, feel free to adjust, change, or skip any meal. It’s completely up to you!

Team Diet Doctor: Kate Nordin's favorites

Kate Nordin, Content Manager on Diet Doctor’s recipe team, created this week’s meal plan. As a working mom-of-three (all under age 5), Kate, who’s also a qualified nutritionist, learned to master time-saving techniques in the kitchen.

Here, she shares her favorite breakfast, lunch, and dinner ideas that both taste great and are simple to make.

“I like to keep things simple, yet nutritious. I spend a bit more time on the weekends making something fun for the family to eat, such as pancakes or pizza, which are, of course, the kid’s favorites. I love cooking, so the weekends allow me to be a bit more expressive with food, while also being able to sit and enjoy each meal with my five-year-old twins, two-year-old, and husband.”

This meal plan will keep you below 20 grams of net carbs per day.

Keto: Bacon appreciation week #1

The rumors are true! Since bacon is full of protein and fat with no carbs, you can eat bacon every day on a keto diet.

This week, we highlight our favorite recipes that include — you guessed it — bacon. In this meal plan, you will enjoy recipes like Keto cheeseburger meatloaf, Keto cobb salad, and Crispy bacon and kale with fried eggs.

What is it that makes bacon so addictive? Is it the aroma? Is it the sound of the bacon sizzling in the pan or the sight of the beautifully crisp, fatty meat? Perhaps you would agree that it’s the first salty, smoky bite. It’s no wonder why bacon is loved by many.

Pro tip: Make sure to buy good quality bacon without sugar. Check out our bacon guide for cooking tips and more helpful information. You can also mix it up by using turkey bacon or beef bacon in place of pork bacon.

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.

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.
