Going on keto can be tough in the beginning, but with a little creativity you can come up with some delicious keto dinner recipes. One of the best things about the keto diet is that you can eat lots of bacon! So, here are some of our favorite keto dinner recipes:

Easy keto dinner recipes

These are some super tasty keto dinner recipes you are sure to love!

Keto Dinner Idea 1: ZOODLES CARBONARA

gourmet steak dinner

SERVING: 4

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 medium zucchini

  • 8 slices bacon,

  • Chopped ½ cup onion,

  • Chopped 1 clove garlic,

  • Minced 4 eggs

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 pinch salt and black pepper to taste

  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley

  • Chopped 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Cut the zucchini into “pasta.” If you are using zucchini “pasta” my suggestion is to only serve the sauce on the noodles you will eat that night. The leftover noodles and sauce get a little soggy, so reserve both separately.

2. In a large skillet, cook chopped bacon until slightly crisp; remove and drain onto paper towels. Reserve 2 tablespoons of bacon fat and heat in a reused large skillet.

Add chopped onion, and cook over medium heat until onion is translucent. Add minced garlic and peas (if using), and cook for an additional 1 minute.

3. Return cooked bacon to skillet; add cooked and drained spaghetti. Toss to coat and heat through.

 4. Add beaten eggs and cook, tossing constantly with tongs or a large fork until eggs are barely set. Quickly add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, and toss again. 

5. Add salt and pepper to taste (remember that bacon and Parmesan are very salty). 

6. Serve immediately with chopped parsley sprinkled on top and extra Parmesan cheese at the table.

Keto Dinner Idea 2: EGGS WITH SPINACH

almond flour

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 large eggs (free-range or organic)

  • 2 rings of large green pepper, approx. 2 cm / 1 inch thick (~ 40g / 1.4 oz)

  • ½ small red onion (30g / 1.1 oz)

  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach (30g / 1.1 oz)

  • ¼ cup sliced organic bacon (30g / 1.1 oz)

  • 1 tbsp ghee (or unsalted organic butter)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Note: Try to get nitrate-free bacon or slice your own from pork belly.

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Rinse the bell pepper, remove the stem and seeds. Slice it into two thick (2 cm / 1 inch) slices just near the center of the pepper (the widest part). Save the rest of the pepper for a salad or with your breakfast.

2. Grease a non-stick pan with half of the ghee or butter and add the pepper rings to the pan. Cook on one side for about 3 minutes. Crack an egg into each of the bell pepper rings. Don’t worry if some of the egg white leaks out, you can simply remove it later on with a spatula. Season with salt and ground black pepper and cook until the egg white becomes firm. When done, set aside.

 3. In a separate pan, warm the remaining ghee or butter and add finely chopped red onion. Cook for a few minutes until slightly brown. Then, add sliced bacon and cook shortly. Add washed and drained baby spinach, season with salt, and cook for another minute. Note: I already had some crispy bacon prepared in my fridge, so I just added that at the end. 

4. Place everything on a serving plate and enjoy!

Staying motivated on the Keto Diet

It can be tough to stick to any diet, especially when temptation is all around you. But don’t worry, we’ve got some great tips to help you stay on track with the keto diet and achieve your weight loss goals.

First and foremost, it’s important to set reasonable goals. Losing 50 pounds in two weeks is not realistic, and is likely to lead to disappointment. Aim to lose one to two pounds per week, which is a healthy and sustainable rate of weight loss.

In addition, make sure you’re getting enough protein and fat. Both of these nutrients are essential for the keto diet and help keep you feeling full and satisfied. Try incorporating healthy fats into every meal and snack, such as avocados, olive oil, nuts and seeds. And make sure you’re eating plenty of protein-rich foods, such as meat, fish, eggs and cheese.

Finally, stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and herbal teas. Dehydration can cause cravings and lead to poor food choices. So drink up and make sure to enjoy plenty of delicious keto-friendly foods!

Keto tips to stay on track while eating out

If you’re on the keto diet, it can be tricky to find keto-friendly options when eating out. Here are some tips to help you stay on track:

  • Plan ahead. Look up menus for local restaurants online and see which dishes fit into your keto diet.

  • Ask questions. When you’re at the restaurant, don’t be afraid to ask your server about the ingredients in a dish or how it’s prepared.

  • Be flexible. If you can’t find a keto-friendly dish at a restaurant, order something that can easily be modified, such as grilled chicken or fish without breading.

  • Bring your own food. If you’re going to a party or gathering, bring your own keto-friendly snacks so you won’t be tempted by unhealthy options.

With a little bit of preparation, it’s easy to stay on track while eating out on the keto diet. By following these tips, you can enjoy your meals without worry and stay on track toward your goals.
