Many times when we enter a new diet, we can find ourselves a bit lost for inspiration, as it can seem like all of the most delicious foods are out of the question. Certain diets like the keto diet are particularly difficult!

Of course, this means that you have to go without carbs, or at least with as few as possible!
Luckily, there are still plenty of awesome foods you can make while sticking to this diet, and that’s probably why you found yourself here.
