It takes discipline to commit to a healthy eating plan, especially one as strict as the keto diet. But if you're new to this particular diet, rest assured that you won't be stuck eating bland food. You can enjoy nutritious meals that are also delicious as long as you make keto-friendly breakfast recipes, like broccoli cheese muffins and spinach quiche.
The keto diet promotes weight loss, boosts your energy level and improves mental clarity. It also minimizes inflammation if you follow the macronutrient recommendations and stay in ketosis.
High triglycerides, blood pressure and blood sugar
low HDL (high-density lipoprotein) or "good" cholesterol
Try keto recipes that are made with ingredients you like and are good for you, like leafy greens, so you can reap the benefits of the keto diet.
The three recipes below are from "The Everything Keto Diet Meal-Prep Cookbook" by Lindsay Boyers, a Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant (CHNC). Boyers shared that learning simple and tasty recipes helps ensure that you strictly follow the keto diet and enjoy its benefits.
Preheat the oven to 350 F, then grease a 9-inch pie pan with the extra avocado oil. Set the pie pan aside.
Heat a tablespoon of avocado oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, then cook for about five minutes or until the onions soften.
Stir in the spinach and cook the onions and spinach until excess moisture evaporates or around five more minutes. Remove from heat.
Combine the cheese, eggs and spices in a medium-sized bowl then whisk until frothy. Add the spinach mixture to the eggs and stir to combine.
Pour the final mixture into the prepared pie plate. Bake the quiche until the eggs have set or around 30 minutes.
Once done, remove the quiche from the oven. Let it cool for several minutes before cutting into six equal portions. Store the quiche in an airtight container. You can keep spinach quiche in your fridge for about a week.
