Keto meals made easy: three terrific low-carb, high-fat recipes


Keto has emerged as one of the most popular diets in recent years. It’s a low-carb, high-fat diet that encourages your body to burn fat for energy.

In her book, ‘The Body Dietetics’, dietician Larina Robinson explains the science behind the trend and provides a foundation of keto-appropriate recipes, covering drinks, snacks and main meals.

Each recipe is accompanied by a handy nutritional breakdown. Says Robinson, “Make sure to keep track of how many carbohydrates you consume each day, as it can add up quite quickly!”

Here’s a taste of some of the recipes in the book:
