Lazy Keto Meal Plan

This post is a companion piece to the lazy keto article, which describes what lazy keto is and who might want to do it. The tl;dr (too long, didn’t read) version is that lazy keto is a simplified version of the keto diet where you only track carbs to make sure you’re under the limit to stay in ketosis. According to The Keto Reset Diet and Keto for Life, that would be about 50 grams total (gross) per day, with some wiggle room if most of your carbs are coming from non-starchy vegetables and avocados. Otherwise, you don’t micromanage your protein, fat, or total calorie intake.

Cioppino

A substantial, acidic, briny, bright one-pot meal with a heady dry white wine broth, cioppino originated in San Francisco from the fishermen’s daily catch and the Italian-American influences around the wharf and surrounding areas. The warm, comforting, aromatic stew chases away any chill from the thick fog that can blanket the area.

This seafood stew can work with a variety of seafood and fish. We like shrimp, scallops and clams because they’re widely available and cook quickly. Steaming the clams in the sauce gives the sauce great flavor. Halibut is a wonderful fish choice, but can be substituted for other firm, white-fleshed fish. If you notice the stew is becoming too dry, you can add additional wine or broth until it reaches the consistency of your liking.

Mini Keto and Primal Crab Cakes

Crab cakes may remind you of cocktail parties, weddings, or sun-soaked getaways to the seashore where you seek refuge from the sun at a fish shack that serves only the freshest local seafood. Most traditional crab cake recipes include breadcrumbs or flour (or both) and are deep fried in vegetable oil so the end result is a greasy, bready puck that disrespects the naturally sweet, succulent essence of lump crabmeat. We remade the classic crab cake to make it Primal and keto-friendly. Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients; we like the way the vegetables and seasonings accentuate the crab, but if you prefer a pared-down version, the crab, almond flour, herbs, mayo, egg, lemon juice, salt and pepper would make a perfectly lovely crab cake, too.

Cilantro Lime Cod

The light taste of fish is often overpowered by heavy sauces. We’ve found marinades to be a great alternative. Some healthy oil means they hold up better to the heat of baking or grilling as well. A quintessential summer flavor for said marinade? Cilantro lime of course! And we’ve got the marinade ready-made, to boot…. We’ve complemented this quick delicacy with fresh green beans, garnished with red pepper, red onion and some cilantro for an easy and tasty dinner pairing.
