Most ketoers would testify that seasonal and scrumptious keto recipes are not easy to find – some might even say it’s impossible. This is because the key factor in sustaining a keto diet is consuming low to no carb meals. And since carbs are so intricately woven into our staple diets, finding recipes low on carbs and high on the taste meter is a daunting and difficult task. However, this does not mean you have to gobble up boiled meats and eggs. We’re here to make the difficult, and seemingly impossible, easy for you. But first, what exactly is keto?
Simply put, keto is a low-carb, high-fat diet that aims to induce ketosis – a metabolic state in which the body burns fat (instead of carbs) for energy. As the body switches from burning carbs to fat, it results in weight loss – and hopefully – greater energy, and prevention of a host of diseases.
Keto is a seriously strict diet and requires a strong commitment. But if you have taken the plunge, or are planning to do so, and are scouting for delicious keto recipes, we’ve got you covered. After scouring the depths of the internet, we’ve curated 15 tried and tested, uncompromisingly delicious keto recipes to keep you warm and full this fall season.
