Due to people being busy, there is no or less time to exercise, and let's be honest; not everyone keeps exercise as their priority. Therefore, to remain fit, they try to find alternate ways such as diet.

Whenever I hear the word diet, a very dull feeling takes over me, but over the years, I have realized that hey, who says my diet has to be boring? A ketogenic diet is a low carb, but a high-fat diet that helps you lose weight with fun, but not many are aware of the recipes that are to be followed in a keto diet. So, below are some of the recipes that you can include in your amazing yet healthy keto diet,

Italian baked meatballs

Ingredients:

Three tablespoons of oil

½ ricotta

Six minced cloves of garlic

1 lb. of ground beef

¼ grated parmesan and chopped parsley for garnish

One large egg

Salt and pepper to taste

One tablespoon of dried oregano

½ tablespoon of chili flakes

One tablespoon of sugar

One can of crushed tomatoes

Method:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, add the beef, ricotta, three garlic cloves, parmesan, parsley, beaten egg, salt, and pepper. Mix all together and form small balls of the mixture.

Later, take a tray and rub it with two tablespoons of oil and lay all the meatballs on it.

Put the tray into the oven; let them cook until they are golden brown in color and firm to touch. This process takes twenty to twenty-five minutes. 

On the other hand, for the sauce, in a large pot, add the remaining oil, the remaining garlic cloves, oregano, crush chili flakes and cook for a minute.

Then add crushed tomatoes and sugar. Add salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then let it simmer for twenty minutes.

Keto baked chicken


Ingredients:

Six bone-in chicken breasts

Salt and pepper to taste

Two large eggs

½ cup of heavy cream

¾ cup of almond flour

½ cup of grated parmesan

One tablespoon of garlic powder

½ tablespoon of paprika

½ cup of mayonnaise

1 ½ cup of hot sauce

keto friendly breadcrumbs

Method:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash the chicken and pat it with a dry towel to get rid of any excess water. Marinate the chicken with salt and pepper.

In another bowl, whisk the heavy cream and eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

In another bowl, combine the almond flour, the parmesan, garlic powder, and paprika. Season with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, put the keto friendly breadcrumbs.

Prepare a baking sheet. Rub two tablespoons of oil so that chicken does not stick to it.

Dip the chicken in the egg mixture first, then in the flour mixture, and then in the keto friendly breadcrumbs. After this, carefully place it on the baking sheet.

When all is done, bake the chicken at 165 degrees for forty-five minutes until it is golden brown.

In another small bowl, combine mayonnaise and hot sauce to form a sauce that will go with the chicken.

Serve the chicken when it comes out of the oven with baked or mashed potatoes.
