Keto Diet Plan Recipes

Keto is simple. But we tend to over think it, and over complicate it. All you need to do is choose a meat, veggies, and a good, healthy fat to help give you energy and keep you full and satisfied. Here are the keto diet plan recipes, using only 6 ingredients or less.

Breakfast

Omelets and Scrambles food list:

Organic cage-free eggs, high fat whole dairy, bacon, sausage, ham, spinach, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, broccoli, zucchini, bell peppers.

It’s best to shoot for the high quality, organic foods, but if money is an object, then it’s okay to choose what you can afford. At least you’re still eating keto, and not the standard American diet that is so unhealthy. and of course you can choose 3, 4, or 6 ingredients to your eggs, but if you add too many ingredients, you’ll over load your eggs.

The ratio of ingredients to eggs should be 1/3 to 1/2 cup ingredients to 2 eggs. You can also combine any of the ingredients, or take them out to your liking. I’m just going to offer some suggestions and combinations that might be the tastiest.

Tips and Info:

The recipes are for 1 serving, but you can double, triple, the recipe of course, if you have many people to cook for. Eggs cook quickly, so all raw meat should be cooked first.

Besides the 5 main ingredients, also included in egg recipes will be: salt, pepper, and heavy whipping cream. You don’t have to use heavy whipping cream, but it’ll just make the eggs taste better, and add to your fat macros. Okay, now on to the keto diet plan recipes

Prefer Omelets?

Scrambling eggs is easy and quick, but sometimes people prefer omelets. In case you don’t know how to make one, here’s the directions:

How to make an omelet:

When the eggs start to cook, gently push the edges to the middle of the pan with a rubber spatula. At the same time, tilt the pan so the uncooked eggs slide onto the pan. Keep doing this all the way around the pan until the eggs are fully cooked on top and bottom. Your eggs should have the nice yellow look and not burned or even brown.

Add your fillings to one side of the eggs, and cover the fillings with the other side of the eggs using a spatula. It kind of reminds me of a blanket, you tuck in the fillings with your loving egg “blanket”. Slide the omelet onto a plate, serve and enjoy.
