Why do some people find the keto diet difficult?
When first starting the keto diet, many beginners find they are eating the same foods over and over again.
This leads them to feel that the keto diet is restrictive, or unable to meet all their nutritional needs.
Fortunately, neither of these conclusions is correct.
The keto diet is able to meet all your nutritional needs when followed correctly.
Further, there is an almost never ending range of foods and meals that are keto friendly.
There is no need to eat the same few meals far too often.
When you spend a little time reading recipes and learning a few basic cookery skills you’ll be amazed.
Not only does the keto diet allow for an amazing range of meals, they are super tasty too.
Feel like a steak with a great keto sauce, a side of chili prawns? You won’t want to go back to your present diet when you see how good eating keto can be.

If you’re vegan and wanting to benefit from the keto diet, this book will be for you.
A Vegan keto diet plan can be challenging to follow, and this book will show you how to keep on track.
The book offers sunflower seed waffles, Tex-Mex cauliflower steaks with guacamole, creamy “cheeseball” bites, and delicious desserts like a macadamia nut mug cake.

The bood also gives a macro and calorie breakdown for each serving size.
The introduction helps the newcomer to find their way around the keto lifestyle without making mistakes.

We absolutely loved this book, even if its about meals you haven’t cooked yourself at home!
If you’re not familiar with dirty keto it’s a way of being super lazy with your food prep.
While we don’t recommend dirty keto as a long term plan, it certainly has it’s place in a keto diet.
For those times when you don’t want to cook at all, this book offers, in their own words:
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a coffee? We all enjoy fast food! The DIRTY, LAZY, KETO Fast Food Guide: Ten Net Carbs or Less shares complete lists of what you can order at 35 different restaurants. There is SO MUCH MORE to order out there besides the “bunless burger!”
They go on to list what foods you can eat in just about every restaurant and fast food place out there.
Not really a recipe book we know, but a lot of fun and it will help you to get great food while you’re out and about.
So if you don’t always want to cook, and don’t feel like you should be the keto police at all times, we think you’ll enjoy this book.
