It's chili weather! Yay! Now full disclosure, I am not doing the Keto diet. I repeat I am NOT Keto. My mom and dad, however, are. They've been on it for a few months and have been really successful in losing weight. They have managed to avoid craving carbs for the most part and haven't broken their diet once! Personally, I could never give up pizza and pasta, but I'm not opposed to swapping out (or leaving out) a few ingredients in a recipe to help my parents stay on track. I don't mind taking part in some things with the aim of keeping my weight in line, I'm just not keen on diets. For example, by taking supplements that help to curb my appetite (from companies like nucific and many more), I don't need to diet.
However, I definitely don't have the commitment to keto as my parents do. Keto can be very difficult to follow, and without experimentation with recipes, it can be restrictive. I've also heard it's difficult to keep hydrated during the keto diet. Water loss is common during keto, so it's best to look into keto hydration methods.
My mom and I created and tested this Simple Keto Chili recipe and it's a winner. Nolan (and his friends) agree. (I did add a can of chili beans to his version because the man likes beans in his chili.)
For me, the best part of eating a big bowl of chili are the toppings. I like to load mine up with sour cream, cheese, green onion, and of course tortilla chips (the chips are not Keto btw).Print
