Looking to lose weight.
I have been looking for the perfect meal plan to help me lose some extra weight. A little bit of background here. I am currently pregnant with my second child and I have gained about 20 pounds give or take a month and a bit still to go.
I would like to lose those 20 pounds plus some extra. Why? For me. I want to be healthier for my boys. I want to be able to do everything they want to do and more. Plus I want to be able to keep up with my husband when we go hiking.
I have done a lot of research and I have found some amazing ketogenic or keto meals that are low in carbs, high in fats and proteins. And that lovely balance helps you shed the pounds.
Now when most people think diets and losing weight they think being hungry all the time. But the great thing with keto meals is you are consuming proteins and fats which help keep you satisfied.
So you get rich, creamy high protein meals, less sugar and all of the benefits of losing a few pounds.
7 of the best ketogenic dinners.
Creamy, cheesy saucy goodness mixed with shrimp and sun dried tomatoes. Have this amazing dish over zoodles (zucchini noodles) or cauliflower rice.
This dish will tantalize your taste buds. Fresh garlic and chicken mixed with sun dried tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, heavy cream and cheese. And it is all on your dinner table in less than 30 minutes. Amazing.
Avocados have to be the most versatile ketogenic ingredient plus they are full of healthy fats and they are delicious. And who doesn’t love tacos? You have all the taco goodness stuffed into a rich creamy avocado. This is a ketogenic win-win.
Pizza is the ultimate comfort food and the prefect dinner meal in a house full of boys. So you have gone low carb and looking to lose weight, don’t worry you can have your pizza and eat it too.
My Mother In-law loves this recipe. It is simple and easy to prepare and full of flavor. No more missing Chinese food because you are avoiding the carbs. This is a must try recipe.
Lasagna has to be on the top of my husbands favorite dishes so this recipe is a great sub in now that we are watching or I am watching the carbs. All the creamy tomato goodness without the guilt.
I love lettuce wraps with the crunch of the lettuce, flavorful sauces and variety of meats you can use. This recipe uses ground chicken. You could serve this recipe as a main dinner dish or as a party appetizer it is so versatile.
Ketogenic meals and more.
In the last few years there have been so many keto recipe books published full of yummy meals to guide you. Another great resource and not 100% keto but 100% good in Trim Healthy Mama which is full of great recipes and weightloss/lifestyle guidance for Moms.
