I am a massive foodie – that’s why I love scouring the internet for recipe suggestions.
I am always interested in trying out new cuisines and diet plans, so have recently been trying out some Keto friendly recipes.
Keto, which is short for ketogenic, simply means a diet plan which includes foods low in carbohydrates and high in protein.
Some people like to follow a keto lifestyle for health reasons such as managing diabetes or promoting a healthy heart – others follow a keto diet plan for it’s proven effectiveness in weight loss.
Unlike many other diet plans, the keto plan doesn’t restrict many ‘junk‘ foods such as cheese, burgers or deserts, so many people like to take part so that they can still enjoy their favourite foods whilst maintaining their preferred body image.
Whatever the reason you’re interested in learning some new keto friendly recipes, I have put together a list for you with over 40 tasty recipes. There is a vast range of breakfast, lunch and dinner ideas on here for vegan’s, vegetarian’s and meat-eaters – so whether you’re craving pancakes, waffles, burgers, pizza, shrimp or cheesecake, I’ve got you covered!
