Dieting (especially the low-carb kind) can be tough! Even diet plans such as keto, which allow for the consumption of filling healthy fats, can become boring.
Every now and again you’ll crave something new and exciting. As you probably already know, keto diets place an emphasis on very low carb intakes, moderate protein intakes, and high fat consumption – which is where people often struggle. Rather than emphasising healthy fats, people often consume too much meat and definitely too much protein.
On top of consuming the right balance of fats, proteins and carbs, you must ensure you are getting plenty of nutrients from healthy vegetables. The Keto diet is restrictive by nature, so aside from taking the right supplements for the keto diet, you have to take into account your phytonutrients if you want to maintain a level of balance.
This is where ketogenic-friendly soup recipes can prove so useful. Low-carb soups are great because you can get plenty of healthy fats, proteins, and nutrient-rich vegetables in there, and subsequently consume them in bulk.
Whether you go for chunky or smooth soup, it is still much easier to consume larger quantities of soup than it is with whole foods. If you’re looking for inspiration here are a few simple and delicious keto soup recipes to try.
