There are a few low-carb recipes that make the keto diet more appetizing, and this one is one of them.
Keto short for a ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet with moderate protein.
It’s designed to drive the body into a metabolic state called ketosis.
When you are in ketosis, your body burns fat as fuel instead of glucose.
The keto diet has been the most popular diet trend in 2018 and is still going strong.
The only drawback is that 60-80% of your daily calories need to come from fats, leaving 25% to proteins and 5-15% to carbs.
This removes a good chunk of what we normally eat, making meal planning a real challenge. Not to mention, eating meals mostly made up of fats and oils isn’t easy at times.
That’s why any keto recipe that re-creates all American comfort food is golden in my book.
And this recipe is a perfect example of that.
Its egg salad made the keto way.
It not only shows you how to make a keto egg salad that keeps you in ketosis but also makes it surprisingly tasty.
To add to that, eggs are one of the healthiest foods on the planet, providing protein and little to no carb. It’s a great way to boost your energy mid-day or recharge after a hard workout.
Luckily, this egg recipe is fail-proof, so you can whip it up in 10 minutes with very few ingredients.
To make it a full meal, wrap it with lettuce, or make a sandwich with keto bread.
You can also enjoy it on top of any green leafy salad with fatty dressings like Keto ranch dressing.
If you are ready, let’s get started.
