Normally when you are embarking on any low carb diet; not just following keto the prospect of downing a hamburger and fries is a daunting albeit yummy prospect. Let us face reality for a moment or so shall we? Since burgers and chips ( fries ) are by their very nature full of salt, bad fats and other waistline expanding ingredients. Normally exactly the kind of food groups that I’d advise you to stay well away from. Yet my keto hamburger and fries recipe deserves a place on your dinner table for the reasons that I’ll now explain.
What you need to remember about keto is that you are not on a complete carb ban and there are different degrees of moderation that are acceptable in planning your weekly meals. Some people like to be super strict and others allow for a treat here and there. The big keto success tip that I always go back to is to have a proper plan. One that comprises meal plans, exercise and focussed goals. Within that structured plan most people can find the best way to manoeuvre around their recipes.
So what has that got to do with cooking hamburger and fries? Well for some people the process of following a keto life means that they do not feel that the need to totally abandon the foods that they love. Super strict keto guys may find this burger recipe is not for them which is fine. Yet my hamburger and fries recipe does have a place on the keto recipe boardwalk for many of you.
With some significant tweaking of the hamburger recipe I think this is a pretty healthy version of a classic and popular dish. One that you can devour once in a while as a treat should you choose.
