You can make keto bread too, using almond flour and MCT powder and baking powder and eggs. It's not bad. I get most of my stuff from a cook book.

And these keto snacks are good, just expensive and not a lot in the bag...

One I got for a gift recently was the Easy 5 Ingrediate Ketogenic Cookbook. I do find some great recipes online but still come back to this cookbook because it is beyond simple and most everything I've had has tasted really good. The simple ingredients also mean no random grocery items.

The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook: Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes for Busy People on the Keto Diet https://www.amazon.com/dp/1939754445/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_kYZuDbY3EGHRR

If you follow the link they have a few recipes listed there. The one we did tonight is cheesy bacon and broccoli chicken 2 tablespoons ghee 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts Pink Himalayan salt Fresh ground pepper 4 bacon slices 6 oz cream cheese room temp 2 cups frozen broccoli 1/2 cup shredded cheese.

This is a two person serving. Best part she provides calories, total fat, carbs, net carbs, fiber and protein per batch and per serving! It was delicious

My breakfast is almost always a Slimfast Advanced Nutrition shake.

Lunch, I do a lot of Atkins frozen meals or Quest bars and cheese. Sometimes I'll do a precooked frozen chicken breast and steam in the bag frozen veggies (I teach, so my lunches need to be fast and microwavable at most)

Dinner is where things get more adventurous. My husband and I have a keto cookbook. We try to do one new thing a week. (Specifically, I use this one:The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook: Low-Carb, High-Fat Recipes for Busy People on the Keto Diet https://www.amazon.com/dp/1939754445/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_.AOQCbHCF6T7K )

Personally, you cant go wrong with salad (romaine, black olives, mushrooms, cucumbers, maybe a little shaved carrot and feta cheese) with your protein of choice (grilled salmon is great. Fried tofu is good. Chicken is good.) Just make sure you measure all those veggies- they do have carbs and they can add up.

I definitely recommend using an app like Carb Manager at first, it really helped me at first to understand what a typical keto day looks like with my allotted macros (and what foods to avoid - it even has a barcode scanner for easy adding foods you eat).

​

There's also a lot of really budget-friendly foods you can buy that are keto, I eat a lot of eggs, brick cheese, bulk ground beef/ pork, pork tenderloin (pretty much whatever meat is on sale each week), bulk avocados. If you're not much into cooking I got this book through my local library to help me through the first couple weeks with easy meal ideas: https://www.amazon.com/Easy-5-Ingredient-Ketogenic-Diet-Cookbook/dp/1939754445

This is the cookbook I use: https://www.amazon.com/Easy-5-Ingredient-Ketogenic-Diet-Cookbook/dp/1939754445/ It's pretty straight forward and simple.

So, the key to Keto is net carbs (total carbs minus fiber. Sugar alcohols vary ) You want to stay under 20 net carbs a day.

Things like beans and yogurt tend to be kinda carby, but it can vary a lot.

My recommendation (other than reading the FAQ), is get a tracker app like carb manager and watch all your portion sizes. Your ideal meal on Keto is going to be some unprocessed meat and leafy greens. Cheese is good, many nuts (pecans, almonds, macadamia nuts) are good, avocado is your new best friend, eggs are popular.

Maybe even look into a recipe book. I use this one: The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1939754445/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_K-sHCb4ZY6CVJ

Lots of good resources already posted! I got this book for Christmas and it's been pretty good - very minimal ingredients needed and really tasty recipes! https://www.amazon.com/Easy-5-Ingredient-Ketogenic-Diet-Cookbook/dp/1939754445

We meal prep on Sunday evenings and eat the food throughout the week. I don't cook at all during the week - the microwave is as much as I'm willing to do! Haha! Hope this helps.
