Are you on the low carb plan and struggling with summer meals? Of course, you don’t want to have heavy meals or slave in the kitchen while it’s hot outside.
But I am here to help you with my favorite light and refreshing keto salads perfect for summer.
A lot of people new to or starting keto think that they cannot have parties or they will have to ‘cheat’. So not the case with keto! Keto is actually the easiest lifestyle change as so many recipes adapt to keto. These are my favorite keto friendly appetizers that will make you the hit of the party while remaining in ketosis. Win-Win!
I not only hate to cook when it’s too hot but I also don’t like to eat heavy meals. You don’t have to be caught up in the hot kitchen cooking your families meals. I opt for lighter and refreshing meals that I don’t have to slave in the hot kitchen with.
A common misconception for those looking into or starting keto is that you won’t be able to snack. While it IS important to choose the right ones so they don’t knock you out of ketosis, you can in fact snack. There are also many great snacks that will cut your cravings and keep you satiated until dinner.
Snacking with keto isn’t what you were used to snacking on before keto. You’ll need to rethink what snacks are to you. Gone are the days of packages of cookies and bags of chips. Stick to low carb, high-fat options. There are many great ready to go snacks and some awesome recipes to keep you in ketosis, cut the cravings, and keep you from feeling deprived.
I’ve said many times in my posts what we look for when vacationing and looking for a rental. One of the main things we look for is a kitchen. Having a kitchen saves greatly on our expenses which is from cooking our own meals.
However, on vacation, we don’t really want to cook so I stick to super simple meals, mainly crock pot. I’ve got my list of go-to crock pot meals that are keto friendly for my family.

We all have busy days that make it difficult to get a dinner on the table, on a budget and KETO. Especially with a family!
The mundane nightly trip to the store, followed by the speedy attempt to get a dinner on the table often means it isn’t healthy or worse yet, it’s take-out.
We all have the same struggles.
