The Ketogenic (Keto) Diet is super popular right now for promoting health, wellness, and effortless weight loss.  This low carb, moderate protein, high fat diet allows you to consume delicious foods that are restricted on many other diets, including bacon, dairy (even cheese!), avocados, mayo, oils, and salad dressings.  However, the keto diet does limit carbs including breads, rice, pasta, starchy vegetables, fruits, and more, which can leave you with some serious cravings.  These Easy Keto Recipes include keto friendly versions of favorites like pizza, mac and cheese, bread and more, so you can stick to your keto diet for optimum weight loss!

The Ketogenic Diet

If you’re unfamiliar with the keto diet, here are the basics.  The keto diet is a low carb, high fat, whole foods diet that turns your body into a fat-burning machine.  Strict adherence to a keto diet promotes weight loss, mental focus, and increased energy and fights diseases and disorders like type 2 diabetes, epilepsy, PCOS, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure and cholesterol, and autoimmune diseases. 

Block out everything you’ve learned about those low fat diets doctors have been promoting for so many years.  This diet promotes eating lots of fat, in order to put your body in ketosis, which is a fat burning state.  To do this, you need to consume roughly 60-80 percent of your calories from fat.  The rest of your calories will come from protein (10-15 percent) and carbohydrates (less than 10 percent).  This diet is similar to the paleo and Atkins diets in that it promotes a low carb, whole foods diet, but keto goes a step further by exactly balancing macronutrients (fat, protein, and carbohydrates) for optimal weight loss.

Following the keto diet is easy when you can enjoy recipes like these tasty pan seared pork chops smothered in a creamy ranch sauce with cream cheese, butter, heavy cream, chicken broth, and homemade ranch seasoning.  Increase the flavor even more by substituting bone-in pork chops for boneless.

Mac and cheese is another carb heavy comfort food you might be missing on the keto diet, but luckily, this cauliflower “mac and cheese” tastes cheesy enough to conquer any craving with hardly any carbs.

If you don’t normally eat organ meats, the thought of pickled beef tongue may be seriously grossing you out right now, but stick with me here.  Pickled beef tongue tastes like a cross between smoked ham and corned beef, but if you just can’t bring yourself to try it – or you know your family won’t eat it – feel free to substitute smoked ham.

This casserole is so amazing because of its creamy, cheesy goodness smothering healthy, hearty meat and vegetables.  I don’t know about you, but I still can’t believe consuming loads of yummy cheese – in this case Farmer’s cheese, which is one of my favorites – can actually promote weight loss!  I love this diet!
