Would love to have a great Keto recipe, that's around 70% fat and 0-5% carbs. I'm finding a lot of recipes that are said to be Keto but are just low carbs, not high fat. What are your suggestions?

    A lot of recipes may be easily altered to incorporate more fat. For example, swapping chicken thighs for chicken breasts, skipping steps like draining fat after browning meat, or straight adding fat to the food either while cooking (like butter or coconut oil), or to the finished dish, as a garnish, like Avacado, sour cream, cheese, bacon crumbles, etc.

    I find that even in the low carb circle there are a lot of people still trying to eat low fat and not quite grasping keto. Or they're trying to eat high protein which is also not ketogenic. Often, I look at several recipes for something and then build my own.

    I just did that with green bean chili. I was frustrated that the low carb chili recipes were practically just a bowl of meat, and I didn't want too much protein, so I looked at like 7 different recipes and then made it my own. I can't promise that it was perfectly keto, but I believe it was close, and can be boosted with garnishments.

    Anyway, it is nice when a single food has nearly perfectly balanced macros for keto, but when they don't you may be able to fix that by what you pair it with, or with a high fat snack.

    @jdduignan Thanks... I love KetoConnect's videos. I just started to listen to their podcasts also.

    I made a Keto version of Zuppa toscano. I made a huge batch and got 14-1 cup servings
    1lb hot sausage
    8-10 cups chicken broth
    2 cups half&half
    1head cauliflower (mine was 460 g)
    A bunch of kale torn into bite size pieces.
    1 medium onion diced
    3 cloves garlic diced
    Roasted cauliflower with garlic powder and Italian seasoning 20 minutes at 450 degrees
    Cooked the sausage onion and garlic together. Added liquids and kale. Finished with cauliflower before serving. Came to be about 160 cals/cup

    I like this casserole. Has lots of bacon. Easy way to get some protein, some fat, and a big helping of cauliflower.
