Default Low Carb/Atkins/Keto Recipes

I've been doing this for about 2 weeks and am down close to 10 lbs but I am running out of variety. Let me know what yall are eating on this kind of diet.
I bought a microwave steamer for veggies and fish. I also got a microwave omelet maker. The steamer works great for lunch at work and the omelet maker makes minimally sufficient omelets for breakfast.

Here are a couple of my favorites.

-Ground beef tacos with avocado and shredded cheese wrapped in a romaine leaf.

-Breakfast for dinner (eggs, sausage or bacon, etc.)

-Rotisserie chicken from HEB shredded and topped with spicy ranch and wrapped in a romaine leaf.

-Steamed veggies and smoked sausage link.

I've been doing a keto "kick start" plan...
Breakfast is 2 slices bacon, 2 hard boiled eggs. I add tobasco.
Lunch is 5 oz ground beef with sauteed onions and green bell pepper with seasoning to taste and steamed veggies.
Dinner is two chicken thighs topped with mayo and more steamed veggies.
Snacks are 1.5 oz blue diamond smoked almonds from Costco/Sams or pork rhinds.

one of my favorite meals or side dishes is spinach but on steroids. I will cook up a bunch of cut up bacon and sausage. Pour that into a pot along with spinach, cheese, butter, tomatoes or sun dried tomatoes (not a ton), red pepper flakes, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Oh man even the kids love it. That'll be a whole meal for me.

I do the same. I keep a big container of mixed nuts in my desk drawer and grab a handful when needed.

I don't know any recipes, but my girl has become a savant at keto cooking over that last few yrs. We are not so much about keto, just healthy eating in general.
Some strictly keto things that come to mind, that really impressed me..
Bisque of all sorts
Cloud bread
Avacado pudding
Cookies of every kind imaginable.
Spaghetti made with squash
Cauliflower Steak
Cauliflower pizza crust
Cauliflower mashed potatoes
Zucchini ravioli
Avacado deviled eggs
Zucchini enchiladas
Zuchina lasagna
Chicken fried steak, substituting pork rinds for bread crumbs. Can be used on a lot of things.
Basically anything you can imagine can be made keto in some way, and you can eat every bit as good as non-keto.

I found after doing the keto diet for a few weeks I just don't eat as much as i normally do.. i eat sausage and eggs during the day or for breakfast .. bringing lunch to work is the biggest problem.. sometimes I grill hamburger patties and just eat that. Or sausage.. I had to learn to eat out of necessity vs pleasure.. that was the hardest part. Now I can go 18 hours before i feel hungry. I've lost and kept 35 lbs off for a little over a year.. once I got to me target weight I started cheating a little and still maintained my weight.

I think that is one of the biggest things... Call it marketing or old fashioned or whatever... Gotta get out of the 3 meals a day with snacks. It's weird to see how much we used to eat. We went and hung out with family and had lunch at 2, small snacks at 5, dinner around 7...why do we need that much food? But that's what we grew up doing. Hard to break the cycle but keto helps... I haven't had lunch all week and haven't been hungry.

I grew up in a family that went for 2nds or 3rds and you ate everything on your plate.. that's a hard habit to break.

Brussel sprouts has become one of our favorites. Chop up a bunch of thick sliced bacon, cook until crisp then remove from pan, toss in halved Brussel sprouts and cook in bacon grease until they get charred up a bit. Add some beef broth or soy sauce and red pepper flakes, toss bacon back in. Cook a few more minutes and serve. We eat it at least once a week with some grilled chicken or pork chop or steak ... You can also add some sliced onions for a variant.

Mashed cauliflower is another one. Steam cauliflower florets in microwave. Add to food processer. Add a splash of cream, big spoon of sour cream, a tablespoon of butter, a good handful of sharp cheddar, fresh cracked pepper, and salt to taste. Puree in food processor until smooth. Excellent side for choice of grilled meat or roto chicken.

I am eating the heck out of brussel sprouts. I steam them with broccoli and asparagus and eat those with a link of sausage. I think I will try your recipe with bacon tonight. Cauliflower mash sounds good too.

Tell me about this microwave omlet maker? I have restarted my keto diet this weekend.

Chicken thighs
Chicken wings
Smoke a brisket or pork butt and just add veggie of choice
I do a lot of cheese also
Make sure you get lots of fiber from salads and greens or you'll regret it

Oh, and Cole slaw homemade works

Chicken and sausage fajitas with all kinds of veggies is one of my favorites...

Burger salads... Remove/discard burger buns of a "bacon King"; toss on a salad along with a sliced avocado....

I don't know if my diet/ habit change/ routine has a name, but it's worked for me. I meal prep alot and eat smaller portions. I try to stay away from crust, gravy and any othe white foods. Sugar, bread, noodles, rice. I make mini 1 egg omelettes in a muffin pan. Cooks several pork chops, chicken legs, hamburger patties, chicken tenders on sunday nite. I buy a bunch of the small cans of veggies to go with my meals. For snax I like mixed nuts, 0 calorie jello, cheese stix, boiled eggs and I make my own lunchables. 1 thick slice of whatever lunch meat and cheese you like, and cut into fours, put em in zip lock bags. Everything is cooked, grab n go. I drink lots of water. Ain't hungry, feel really good. I've lost almost 40 pounds since Nov 1, 2018. I've lost 22% body fat, went from wearing size 42 jeans down to 38s (and they are gettin baggy) and the best part is, my last dr visit, my dr did not renew any of my prescriptions. I was border line diabetic, borderline high blood pressure. I don't work out. The only exercise I get is at work, but I walk everywhere. If I want a cheeseburger, I get a cheeseburger. I order a kids meal and get apple slices instead of fries. If I want fried chicken, I order a kids meal. My cheat meals are usually for lunch. That way I have the rest of the day to walk it off, instead of going to ci cis pizza and floppin down on the couch afterwards.

It's working for me.

Sorry I just saw this. Itís just a rubbery flat bowl that you scramble a few eggs in and nuke. Itís usually edible. But donít overcook or the eggs will turn grey and hard. I bough it on amazon.

I tell everyone I'm following a keto principled diet - certainly not strict keto. My thought is it took many years to pile the weight on so I'm in no big hurry to get it back off. It's more of a sustainable lifestyle change for me than a diet.

Keto nachos. Instead of chips use pork rinds. They come with choice of brisket crumbles or pulled pork pieces with sour cream and some grated cheese.

More meals that keep me going low carb without getting sick of it:

Chipolte salad

Burger (no bun) with cheese and herb aioli plus steamed broccoli at Outback for lunch

Lunch pork rib and link sausage plate at Pappas BBQ with shredded cheese and side salad with Italian

My family likes the whole roasted chickens you can buy hot at the store. I have started buying Pesto sauce (in the cold section with the fresh pasta) and making Pesto Shredded chicken.

Baked eggplant. Slice eggplant and lay them on a cookie sheet in one layer. Brush with olive oil an top with crushed garlic and Sambal (Asian hot sauce) to taste. Bake at 400 until very soft.

I am not on a keto diet, but I eat very clean and low carb. My carbs come mostly from oats, brown rice, sweet potatoe, and fruit. I just stay away from sweets, carbs, and processed foods, so nothing from a box or a bag.

I think that's a wise policy. I am not strict keto in that I am not trying to eat high fat. Just ultra low carb to lose some weight. Mostly meat, eggs, green leafy vegetables etc. I've lost 16 lbs in about 2 months.
