Fall Keto Recipes
As long summer days give way to crisper, cozy nights, our thoughts turn to keeping our waistlines trim while still indulging in the delights of the fall season. In California, the Keto diet has become a popular way to prepare a satisfying meal without stretching out our inseams. By tucking into a low-carb, high-fat mix of proteins and vegetables, the body enters ketosis, a process which burns stored fat instead of glucose for fuel.
Whether you love baking, frying, or even dicing garden-fresh greens for a salad, the Keto diet offers plenty of creamy culinary concepts to help celebrate autumn’s arrival. There’s the classic ground meat and broccoli bake, with melted cheese, a touch of butter, sauce-friendly white button mushrooms, red pepper flakes, and a sprinkling of finely chopped garlic. Pan sear the ground meat and broccoli for about fifteen minutes before placing everything in the oven for a quick, mouth-watering broil.
This time of year we also love making desserts, such as this Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake from Simply Stacie. Amp up the spices by combining ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon before mixing them with a whisked egg, cream cheese, and crushed pecan or walnut pieces. One hour of baking later, we relish sinking our forks into this rich slice of fat-burning heaven.
Oh—and did we mention Keto is very bacon-friendly? Yes! Whip up a low-carb cauliflower-based soup with sharp cheddar cheese, finely sliced bacon, chicken broth, green onions, and a dollop of sour cream. But don’t fear limits—as you can see from the following list, there are enough Keto recipes to delight any palate well into winter:
Remember, you should always consult with your physician or other health care professional before beginning any diet.
