If you’re craving carbs on your keto diet, look no further than this keto soup recipe, made with actual pickles! The saltiness of the pickle brine mixed with the creaminess of the soup makes for the perfect craving buster!
I never cared much for soup until I became an adult and realized far less energy is required to make soup than just about any other keto recipe out there. I can have a batch of keto soup made in under 20 minutes, start to delicious finish.
Talk about a quick keto meal!
And, packed with ingredients that encourage fat burning.
You read that right! Using a high-quality bone broth in your keto soup recipes increases the glycine content, an amino acid that helps the body breakdown fat.
The key here is to use high-quality bone broth that is rich in glycine.
Combined with the oil of your choice like coconut oil, avocado oil, or ghee, and you’re boosting your fat burning with every sip you take.
As you work to become fat adapted, you may find that you crave carbohydrates once and awhile. This is a natural response, but knowing that fact doesn’t totally help you in the moment! What can help, is eating pickles! The saltiness can help sooth your longing for carbs and overcome a carb cravings easier than just ignoring it.
That’s why I love this soup so much! And, because pickles are so inexpensive, using pickles in your dairy-free keto recipes is a great way to stay on budget when planning out your keto diet meals.
