Keto-Friendly Recipes

People assume that keto is a limiting diet. They focus so much on what they “can’t” eat, they never get around to enjoying what they can. For me, there’s not much difference between my keto meals and my regular Primal eating—more fat and more focus on above ground vegetables. But I never feel like I’m missing out.

I’ve created a recipe resource for keto-friendly meals throughout the day (and offered a few tempting samples below of what’s waiting for you to discover). I think you’ll find that keto offers limitless options and leaves you feeling more satisfied than any other “diet” you may have tried before. Enjoy!

Keto Breakfasts

Here are two of my favorite versions for you to enjoy. The honey and cinnamon keto bread is especially hard to resist. Toasted with butter, it’s a breakfast that both kids and adults will love. The garlic, dill and cheddar Primal keto bread is a savory treat, perfect for a BLT or turkey sandwich when the craving calls.

Keto Lunches

Inline_Final Fat Bomb SaladFor years now, all those who know me (including readers of the blog) have heard me talk about my daily “big-ass salad.” It’s been my lunch of choice for a couple of decades at least, and I don’t see that ever changing. Over the years I’ve adapted it to my personal tastes, nutritional experiments, and—lately—my keto practice.

With fat comprising up to 75% of keto energy sourcing, you can bet we’re talking about more than lettuce. This salad is no side dish for sure. I get a large portion of my fat intake from it every day—keto weeks included.

Keto Snacks

Primal AviaryGuacamole is always an easy sell. Put a bowl out at a party, and immediately the entire group is ready to dip in. So, imagine what might happen when a bowl of bacon guacamole is served. Stand back—this is a flavorful, high-fat snack that people are going to run towards.

Basic guacamole doesn’t really need a recipe. In essence, it’s just avocados, lime and salt. However, if your usual go-to has tasted a little ho-hum lately, this recipe will guide you back to an amazing guacamole experience. Ripe avocados are mashed with shallot, garlic, cilantro, lots of lime, and yes, bacon. Bacon is the perfect salty, crunchy topper for guacamole—and helps this dish make for an ideal keto snack.
