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.

    I have found HFLC with intermittent fasting no grains, no sugar & no dairy worked better for me.
  5. Alethea
    Do you have lunch or dinner that I could purchase and have them shipped to me 3 or 4 days at a time.

    Love this idea as I am a lazy cook. Hopefully a global version will come out suitable for other English speaking countries. What about nuts which appear to be left off? Could desserts and other after dinner treats also be added in maybe at the end?

    A low carb vegetable that I love and would like to see in keto recipes is the chayote also called cho cho, mirliton, christophine (in French) or vegetable pear.
    It's perfect to replace potatoes in a stew or a soup.
    It keeps its shape through cooking and is very versatile to use.

    What is keto never heard of it
  14. Gentiann
    Bonjour, Françoise
    It's 4.5 grams net carbs for 100 grams of chayote.
  15. Gentiann
    Another source gives a different carb count for 100 grams : 4.5 g total carbs, 1.7 g fiber which results in 2.8 g net carbs. Even better !
  16. Marian
    Brilliant tool. Thank you!
  17. Andrew
    sadly my wife has given up Keto and gone Vegan great news about that is that I can cook all the food I enjoy and not worry about cooking for her anymore as I will not go anywhere near vegan food as its's full of carbs everywhere you look and protein is in very short supply
