Keto Salads & Soups
The ketogenic diet, or keto for short is a diet and a lifestyle based on a steady low-carb, high-fat diet. Keto comes from the term “ketosis”, a state that the body may enter where it burns fat instead of carbohydrates for fuel. It is similar to low carb in theory – reducing carbs, and replacing with healthy fats and protein – but often restricts carbohydrates to a much lower amount, as little as 50 grams or less, versus 50-150 on many low carb diets.
One of the challenges with the keto diet, much like the low carb diet, is finding a way to maintain our interest in food with delicious recipes, and make up for the fact that so many of our favorite recipes and ingredients are now off-limits. Additionally, finding ways to get extra fat into our diet to reach our caloric needs since our carbohydrate intake goes down can also be a challenge.
Cooks and creative people all across the world have experimented and discovered a number of creative ways to take out what they consider bad, and replace with nutrient-rich substitutions that help us to enjoy the foods we used to, with alterations that make them much better for us, without losing any flavor or texture.
All of the keto recipes are listed on this page. Explore, and enjoy, and eat well!
