Hello everyone and welcome to the new year.
It goes without saying that a lot of people use the new year to kickstart their journey to a new self, I’ve been one such person and chances are if you’re reading this, then you are too.
A request I get semi regularly but was yet to fulfil until today is creating a meal plan.
Now, the odds are that if you’re reading this you’ve got some knowledge of what a ketogenic diet is and how it works and that’s why you’re going to give it a go, (tl:dr; eat a lot of fat, limit carbs) but here’s the short of it anyway.
Because of the nature of the diet, you’ll be cooking most of your own meals. For this reason I recommend choosing a few recipes that you can stomach a couple of times a week and cooking them on a Sunday or one night of the week, it’ll save you time and effort in the future, and will make it considerably easier.
This meal plan is very general purpose and you might want or need to make modifications to suit your lifestyle. For people who are very physically active, you are probably going to need to eat decently sized meals, but hopefully this is part of your knowledge already.
The focus of the meal plan is on lunch and dinner, as if you’re eating correctly, you shouldn’t be hungry for breakfast. If you’re just starting out you might not be quite ready to tackle skipping breakfast, and if that’s the case, I recommend two eggs fried in butter, this will easily keep your fuelled until lunch.
|Lunch||Deli Meats and Cheese||Pulled Pork||Basic Lemon Chicken||Taco Salad||Bacon and Mixed Vegetable Stir Fry||Steak and Eggs||Lazy Keto Chicken|
|Dinner||Slow Cooked Chuck Steak||Cabbage Fra Diavolo||Moussaka||Chicken and Cheese Bake||Chicken and Leek Pie||Baked Cauliflower with Cheddar||Roast Pork Cutlets with Vegetables and Homemade Cheese Sauce|
Hopefully this will make your initial journey into a Ketogenic Diet a lot easier, and allow you to start getting creative with your cooking as you become more comfortable with the common ingredients(butter!)
