While many, if not most, recipes are difficult to alter to a ketogenic version, we have found that concocting (and even finding) a legitimate keto-friendly chili to be especially challenging. More often than not, the protein gets a little out of control in its ratio to fat, and the net carbs are also unusually high in most chili recipes. However, we have created one here that fits into (or very close to) the ideal macronutrient range. This chili is easy enough to prepare for a beginner cook to prepare, and the flavor of the finished product is superb.
This recipe is a different take on the classic omelette. Instead of sautéing the greens, blend them with the eggs to get a green consistency throughout. The texture of the omelette is slightly different, but in a good way. Plus, the nutrients in the vegetables hold up better when cooked this way, as they are not destroyed by the direct heat of the pan. Prepare this at any time of the day to get a healthy serving of greens. The recipe makes one large serving, but it can easily be split into two.
Don’t be intimidated by the long ingredient list. This keto-friendly taco salad does take a little time and effort to assemble, but the delicious results are well worth it!
Hanger steak, sometimes referred to as butcher’s steak (because in the past, butchers would often keep it for themselves), is arguably the most tender cut of the animal. This steak pairs well with our chimichurri recipe.
