WHAT IS THE KETOGENIC DIET?
The ketogenic diet (often called keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that shares similarities to paleo, Whole30, and Atkins. It involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake, and replacing it with fat. When your body switches to burning fat for its primary fuel source, that’s when you hit ketosis.
While on the Keto diet you’re supposed to get at least 70 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 25 percent from protein, and 10 percent from carbohydrates. You’re supposed to avoid all grains, legumes, root vegetables, fruit, (except berries) and sugar.

– Salmon or chicken salad can be used in place of tuna salad if preferred.
– (Almost) Any type of fresh herbs can be used to make the carrot greens. Fresh Parsley, Cilantro or Chives are all great options, if you don’t have fresh dill.
– These cute little baby bell carrots also make a great appetizer any time of year. They’re a great way to make meal or snack time more fun.
– The Tuna Salad can be made any way you like it. If you like your tuna extra saucy you should a bit more mayonnaise. If you’re not a fan of pickles, minced celery or onion is a great replacement. I often add a little mustard to add a little zing.
– Adding cheese to the bottom of the peppers before adding the tuna is an easy way to add a little more flavour.
