So many of you asked for a starting keto meal plan, that I just created one packed with keto diet recipes and easy keto meals for you to start off with. Cheese sticks wrapped in turkey or ham, salami or pepperoni, nuts, and avocados make the best keto snacks to keep on hand as keto diet snacks.
However, to play it safe, you should work with a dietitian to come up with a well-rounded keto meal plan to avoid nutrition deficiencies. Although fat is the centerpiece of any keto diet, that doesn't mean you should be subsisting on butter-topped steaks, says Kristen Mancinelli, RD, author of The Ketogenic Diet. “A big misconception is that you should just put meat at the center of your plate and add more fat on top,” she says.
