A Foolproof Keto Meal


A Foolproof Keto Meal
The Keto diet.
There's a lot of hype around this popular diet right now. The Ketogenic diet is a high fat, moderate protein, very low carb, and no sugar eating plan that, over time, makes your body burn fat (instead of carbohydrates) for energy. In addition to weight loss, fans of this diet report other benefits to this way of eating: lower blood sugar, cholesterol, and risk of heart disease, as well as protection against cancer and fighting neurological disorders.
We are seeing more and more requests for this special diet on meal schedules, so we wanted to give you a foolproof meal idea. Now when you see the word Keto on a meal schedule you're participating in, you will have no need to fear.

Iceburgers - Serves 4
(from Delish)
  1. Slice a head of iceburg lettuce to form the buns
  2. Over a skillet over medium-high heat, cook 4 slices of bacon until crispy. Drain the fat.
  3. Cook 4 slices of red onion in the same pan until tender, about 3 minutes
  4. Wipe skillet clean. Form 1 pound of grass-fed beef into 4 patties. Cook for 4 minutes on each side until no pink remains (you can also grill the patties and/or use ground turkey)
  5. Melt a slice of cheddar cheese on each patty for 1 minute
  6. Build your burger with lettuce, the burger and cheese, a slice of tomato, red onion, a slice of bacon, and another piece of lettuce on the top.
*Use a toothpick to keep the burgers together when transporting or keep each component separate and let your meal recipients assemble their own iceburger.
Roasted Asparagus - Serves 4
Break off the tough ends of 1-2 pounds of asparagus. Place on a rimmed cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper. Roast at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
