Since I’ve been discussing the keto diet and what it has done for me recently, I decided to continue the discussion. I wanted to share some of my favorite recipes so far. I found most of these recipes through other low carb blogs. Here are some of the low carb/keto recipe blogs that I often refer to when I am prepping meals:
- Healthy Keto
- I Do Keto
- No Bun Please
- Ruling the Keto Diet
- Peace Love and Low Carb
- Wicked Stuffed
- Ruled Me
- Keto Diet App
- Keto Karma
So one of my favorite dishes so far has been the Twice Baked Cauliflower casserole by Keto Karma. It is so amazing and it only has 5-7 net carbs per serving! It’s about 240 calories. I think it pairs well with chicken, hamburger or steak. This is a great alternative to potatoes and to be honest I don’t miss them at all. This is a recipe that’s hard to not make every single week!
Sometimes I get a mad craving for some pasta. I never use to eat Spaghetti Squash but wow I am so hooked now! It replaces pasta and I think it is just as good if not better. I found the most amazing creamy Cajun pasta. It is from Wicked Stuff and is called Roasted Chicken & Creamy Cajun Spaghetti Squash Pasta. I will definitely be making this many times! This came out to be a little over 12 net carbs and 375 calories.
My family makes this really yummy sausage and cheesy potato chowder during the colder months. I was really craving it and found a keto friendly recipe to satisfy me. It was so good and I didn’t miss potatoes at all! It is Peace Love and Carb’s Sausage Cheese Soup. It was very hearty and filling. I did not add a bottle of beer and it was still just as good. This came out to be 3 net carbs and 215 calories per serving.
Another great recipe I found was an alternative to just a cheeseburger. I love casseroles because I find them easy to pack for lunches or prep for dinners. This one is from Lowcarb-ology and it’s called Cheeseburger Casserole. This was super easy to make and it reheated throughout the days very well. I sliced up pieces and brought them for my lunches. This came out to be a little over 3 net carbs and 346 calories.
These are just a few of my favorites right now. When I’m meal prepping for the week, I find it easiest to find recipes that I can eat all week-long. I know some people may get tired of the same lunch or dinner every day, but I find it easier to stay on track when I have my meals cooked and prepped. I will switch it up the next week. Keep it simple. Casseroles, soups, etc., are easiest to prep for the whole week.
I will be sharing more recipes that I use in my meal prepping with you coming up. I hope you give some of these a try. If you do, be sure and let me know if you thought they were as yummy as I did.
