No flour, no sugar — this doesn’t quite sound like a recipe for deliciousness.

Nevertheless, hear us out: The keto diet can be made delicious. Short for ‘ketogenic’, the keto diet is an eating practice that focuses on fulfilling one’s caloric consumption primarily using fat and protein whilst reducing carbohydrates to only about 5 to 10 per cent of daily caloric intake. The “clean” version of the diet (as opposed to the “dirty” or “lazy” keto) also discourages processed foods and trans fats, and instead places emphasis on naturally high-fat foods like avocados and nuts.

Here, we’ve curated a list of keto recipes for fitness devotees and foodies who want to give the keto diet a try for health reasons, or just to switch up their weekly menu.
