Even if you started out with every intention of making your keto journey fun–and full of tasting, healthy, and interesting meals–sometimes things can get a little stale. Even top chefs find themselves lacking ideas and gusto sometimes.
Don’t get bored on your keto diet and find yourself giving in and straying from your wellness or fitness goals and the beneficial state of ketosis. Are you tired of eggs and bacon for breakfast and chicken with salad for dinner? Going keto does not have to be boring, but if you become a creature of habit or you’re stuck in a keto rut, read on for top tips to revitalize your keto lifestyle and keep your keto diet interesting.
1. Add New Whole Foods
Conquer your keto boredom by adding in new foods you don’t usually eat. Maybe you’ve never tried a certain food or only tried it once or twice in the past. If you haven’t been eating many nuts, expand your horizons and branch out from your usual walnuts and pistachios; try almonds, macadamias, and Brazil nuts instead. If you’re always snacking on pork rinds or some other keto ‘chips’, go for veggie sticks and fresh guacamole dip. Enjoy this spinach artichoke dip, or kick it up a notch with this irresistible bacon spinach dip.
Try wild game or more exotic meats that aren’t typically on your dinner plate, like rabbit, duck, bison, elk, wild turkey, and yak. You can often find interesting, tastier, and more affordable cuts of meat and sausage at your local butcher shops, online, at farms, or at farmer’s markets. Ask your local butcher or farmer for tips on how to prepare the food.
