What is Keto?
Before we dig into these delicious super easy recipes, let me give you more information on keto diet. A keto diet emphasizes eating foods that are rich in protein and fats and minimal in carbohydrates. Your body gets into a state of ketosis, during which it uses stored fat as energy. A keto diet usually consists of whole foods with protein, natural fats and lots of Veggies. Carb-rich foods like pasta, sugar and bread are reduced. Low-carb diet is great for people who want to reduce their weight and improve overall health.
I personally do not follow a keto diet. I believe in living a balanced life when it comes to food and involving all sorts of food groups in moderate quantity. However, a lot of you have asked for this list and here I am providing it for you 🙂 So let’s dig into these 10 delicious easy Keto friendly Low-Carb Chicken recipes.
Why is Keto so popular?
Keto was originally developed to help lower seizures in young epilepsy patients. It gained significant popularity and the diet is now promoted as a weight loss technique for people who want to start shedding the extra pounds and cut off starchy foods from their diet.
Is Chicken Keto Friendly?
A fantastic low-carb diet mainstay is chicken. It’s simple to prepare and goes well in a variety of foods, including salads, soups and even by itself. On the ketogenic diet, chicken is regarded as a staple food if you are a non-vegetarian. Chicken is low in carbohydrates and high in vitamin B as well as other vital minerals. Additionally, chicken is a fantastic source of high-quality protein, which may aid in maintaining muscle mass while following a very low-carb diet.
What Kind Of Chicken Is Best For Keto?
The good news is both white meat and dark meat are ok to eat on keto diet. However the best kind of chicken to use is certainly chicken breast as it is the leanest cut. However if you want your chicken to have more flavor, chicken thighs are the best.
