While following a Keto diet, you may want to move into ketosis a little faster.  Or you may want to consume more food even though you have used up your carb count for the day.  This can be done by eating zero carb dishes that keep the metabolism stimulated.  Zero carb dishes can also be enjoyed on your PSMF days.  The Protein-Sparing Modified Fast diet, also called the PSMF diet, is a diet you can follow on a short-term basis (maybe a day or 2 per week within your Keto diet) to lose a large amount of weight quickly. Doctors most often recommend the protein-sparing diet to people who are obese. The purpose of the diet is to help people lose body fat, not muscle. (Remember, you should consume some carbs.  And remember you require carbs to shuttle the protein to your muscles.)  All the Zero Carb dishes are easy to make from ingredients readily available in your local supermarket.

Did You Know:  The Keto diet has two secrets. The first secret is eating the right fats. Your body’s primary fuel source is fat. So choose healthy fats (monounsaturated and polyunsaturated) and limit unhealthy ones (saturated). The second secret is eating enough fiber. Aim for 25 to 30 grams of fiber per day. Among the fibers you should consume are soluble (Brussels sprouts and chia seeds), insoluble (asparagus and broccoli), and resistant starches (green bananas, pumpkin seeds, cashews). Eating the right fats and enough fiber can help you boost your metabolism, control cravings, and prevent any digestive issues.


If you’re not sure what to make, try these classic healthy appetizer ideas. You can’t go wrong with wings, stuffed mushrooms, and anything that has bacon! You can also find more chicken wing ideas in my chicken recipes archive. I highly recommend serving them with a dipping sauce, such as ranch or blue cheese.


Dips make the best healthy appetizers! Serve them with veggies (like celery, carrots, cucumbers, or bell peppers) for the healthiest option, or your favorite chips. My fave healthy chips are zucchini chips, but tortilla chips or your favorite cracker will also work great. You can also make it even more simple with basic dips, like tomato salsa or guacamole.


It’s so fun to make an appetizer dish of various mini finger foods! Try these ideas to start. Bonus: Many of these are make ahead healthy appetizers, so you don’t have to scramble right before your guests arrive.
