Whether you have ground turkey, pork, or beef in your freezer, this satisfying keto meal will keep your belly full and your ketones soaring.
There are a lot of keto recipes out there to choose from. When I started eating keto back in 2014, basically two bloggers were writing about keto, and I was one of them!
But now, you have so many options when planning your keto family meals. In a way, oodles of options are helpful – you can always find what you need, and keep variety in your diet.
But, if you’re the type that gets excited over trying new things, having too much to choose from can end up affecting your ability to stick to a grocery budget.
Cooking keto family meals doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Planning and prep can go a long way when you’re keto grocery shopping (as can the keto meatloaf recipe I’m sharing today… and we’ll get to that in a moment.)
Because meats and fats tend to be expensive, and carbs are notoriously cheap, you may expect to spend more money on food while you’re on a keto diet. However, when you’re keto, you’ll find that you eat far less than you did when you were eating carbs every two to three hours.
So, as you begin to adapt, your hunger will subside; a natural reaction to the keto diet, and you’ll find you’ll end up spending less money on groceries overall.
Here are a couple of ways to stay cost conscious money on keto grocery shopping:
Here are 8 additional ways to cut grocery costs.
Once you’ve stocked up on ingredients for your keto pantry (and fridge!) it’s time to find recipes that align with the foods you have on hand, and don’t require you to go out and shop more.
This is what I do for our house. If you don’t know, my husband and I live on a sailboat full-time and, as we’re traveling about, there aren’t always grocery stores at every stop. Meaning, we have to have upwards of 6 months of food onboard at all times! This makes sticking to a grocery budget fairly easy. If a recipe calls for something I don’t have, it’s not being made.
That’s how this keto meatloaf recipe was born. It was a combination of all of the keto ingredients I had on hand while we were traveling through the Bahamas.
I hope you enjoy this healthy keto recipe as much as we do!
