Why Keto?

There are so many different lifestyles but one that has gained tremendous popularity recently is the Keto Diet. What exactly is it you might wonder? Well, as Healthline puts it “The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares many similarities with the Atkins and low-carb diets. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. This reduction in carbs puts your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.”

Basically, the idea is you incorporate healthy fats and protein while limiting carbs so that your body burns fat as fuel. Many people who try it report great results. We don’t practice keto but we do count our macros which include 25% intake of healthy fats. And, this is one of my boys’ favorite high protein/high-fat snacks and it just happens to be perfect for not only those counting their macros but for those practicing the keto diet as well.

Keto Nachos- how can they be low carb, don’t you need chips? 

Ha! Yes, have no fear these delicious keto nachos are packed with delicious homemade tortilla chips using low-carb tortillas.

Homemade tortilla chips are super easy to make but if you don’t feel like making them you can also substitute them for cassava chips- these are our fav! Other options we love include subbing chips for homemade sweet potato chips, sliced bell pepper, and jicama sticks.

Directions (keto nachos)

  1. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat while you prepare your other ingredients (slice your steak & chop your veggies)

  3. While the veggies are cooking place black beans in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until done. Alternatively, you can microwave them following the package instructions. Once the beans have finished cooking set aside.
