Having regular tacos is a big no-no for anybody on a ketogenic diet.

Because of this, you have to find a way to get some kind of taco, especially for the Taco Tuesday lovers out there.

I’m a huge pork chop lover, so any chance I get to have a nice juicy one, I’m going to take it.

A great thing about this recipe is that you’ll be having a crispy “breading” on the pork chop.

The breading is mostly cheese so you’ll be having no worries again when it comes to the carbs. You get the same breading texture with a hint of cheese.

Keto dinners

This just sounds fancier than the rest of the recipes. It’s probably going to look fancier than the other recipes too just because of what goes into it.

You have ham inside a piece of chicken. If you’ve never had anything like this before then you need to try it. The two proteins work really well together, especially when some cheese is added.

When done right, the recipe is going to look beautiful, if it’s done with a little bit of slack you could go from a gourmet type dish to a fast food looking dish in a hurry. However, the flavors will still be the same.

Stuffed Pork Chops

Keto dinners

What’s better than a regular pork chop? A stuffed pork chop!

The key to this recipe is to make sure the pork chop is cooked all the way through. You don’t want to cut yourself short by not having a fully cooked pork chop.

When you stuff any kind of protein, you’re going to need to cook it longer.

However, when you properly cook the pork chops, you’re going to have some happy taste buds.

Another burger recipe but in a different form.

You’re still going to have all the great flavors of a cheeseburger which makes this recipe so tempting.

As long as you get that taste you’re looking for then everything will turn out okay.

However, you’ll be making a calzone that is 100% keto friendly.

When you make the calzone, you’ll be stuffing it with ingredients that will probably start to make your mouth water.

Oven Fried Tilapia

Keto dinners

Tilapia is one of my favorite fishes to eat.

It’s simple to eat and doesn’t require a lot of finesse to cook.

Don’t worry, even though the recipe has the word fried in it, doesn’t make it an unhealthy option.

We are guaranteeing that these recipes are keto friendly. Some may seem too good to be truly keto, but all of them are.

Stuffed and Wrapped Shrimp

Keto dinners

Stuff AND wrapped shrimp. That definitely sounds almost too good to be true.

You get to have a bit of spiciness with the jalapenos but you also get the delicious saltiness of the bacon.

Anything with bacon is great. I have yet to have a meal that had bacon that I didn’t like.

You’re going to have a lot of flavors going on at once so you should do what you can so savor every single bite. Enjoy the experience of what you just created in your kitchen.

Next to tilapia, salmon is a personal favorite of mine. It just has such an identifiable taste that is almost always amazing.

So, if you’re a salmon lover, this is a dish for you.

What you soak the salmon in is going to make everything about this meal even better.

When you think of all the added benefits of eating salmon, such as the vitamins and natural fish oils, this recipe just seems like an automatic winner in any kitchen.

Curry is definitely something that comes in a bunch of different flavors and spiciness levels.

For this recipe, you aren’t going to need to worry about the spice too much. It’s just enough to let you know that it’s there, but it’s not enough to set your mouth on fire.

Enjoy the Options You Have

Being on a ketogenic diet doesn’t have to limit all of your food options. You are only limited to foods that are going to negatively affect your health, namely sugars and carbs.

As you can see, there are plenty of chances for you to make a dish that is filled with all kinds of flavors. You won’t be missing out on much.

I understand that some recipes sound too good to be true, but if you trust the process of the keto diet, you’re going to lose the weight you want.

I also understand that a lot of these recipes may not tell you to prepare a side dish or some veggies. So, if you’re looking to add a little more vegetables on top of these amazing dinners you can look at these low carb vegetables that are more than keto friendly.

If you happen to still be a little skeptical of the diet in general, take a look at Keto Dash. Here, you will have plenty of support and options for even more food. You’ll also see that you don’t have to worry about anything if you trust the process.
