Keto Sheet Pan Chicken and Loaded Cauliflower

In a sheet pan meal, everything cooks together on one baking sheet, making prep and cleanup a breeze. We chose chicken thighs because they're flavorful and juicy. The cauliflower, a keto-friendly vegetable, gets loaded with cheese, sour cream and bacon — a nod to a classic baked potato.

Keto Meatloaf

We gave classic meatloaf a keto-friendly upgrade. We caramelized the roasted red peppers to add a layer of sweetness — without ketchup — that balances the deep flavors of tomato paste and Parmesan. The almond flour and egg help the meatloaf hold together and slice beautifully without drying it out, and the bacon renders over top to add further flavor.

Spicy Edamame Dip

Edamame, or “baby” soybeans, are a high-protein option for dips, fillings and sauces.

Keto Chocolate Ice Cream

This keto-friendly chocolate ice cream delivers! The egg yolk-based custard is the key to its full-bodied creaminess, while good-quality cocoa powder insures a rich chocolate flavor. We tested various keto-approved sugar substitutes and found some to be gritty or simply too sweet. Stevia adds just the right amount of sweetness without changing the texture. Take care not to over-churn, to avoid graininess.

Who says you can't have pizza when you are living the keto lifestyle? These protein-packed cauliflower bites are cheesy and packed with the same flavors you'll find on a classic slice --garlic, onion, Italian seasoning and some red chile flakes, for heat. We add a touch of jarred marinara sauce to the mix and also serve more sauce warm on the side. Just make sure the one you use is keto-approved and has no added sugar.
