Keto can have a lot of repetition during the week. We get busy with work and life, and coming home to new, delicious meals every night then planning for an elaborate breakfast and health lunch for tomorrow isn’t always possible… it’s rarely possible.
Knowing that a major keto strategy, especially in the early stages, is meal prepping which leaves little variety, we came up with the 3 day keto meal plan designed for weekend splurging since you’ll have more time to make meals from scratch and may want to have some friends over for a nice social meal with a drink or two.
Sausage, Spinach, Cheddar Omelet with Strawberries in cream on the side.
½ cup Spinach
1 oz. Shredded Cheddar cheese
1 oz. Spicy Sausage meat
¼ cup Heavy whipping cream
Cook the sausage meat in a pan. Lightly sauté the spinach in the sausage grease. Whip the 3 eggs into a scramble and pour them into the sausage greased pan. Add the cooked sausage, sautéed spinach to the omelet, top with cheese, and fold it over.
Slice a half cup of strawberries, but them in a bowl and pour the heavy whipping cream over top.
