Entrées are important simply because dinner is one of the three most important meals of the day.

Keto can make them challenging and fun! No, really. Even in a mixed household where not everyone is doing keto. In my own circumstance I am the non-keto supporting partner. My spouse has a desire to do keto and I have a passion for cooking so it is a reasonably perfect situation.

One of the keys to success with entrées is to ensure that the volume and composition of the meal items fit a few basic criteria: tasty, visually appealing, satisfying and easily prepared. Add to this the minor challenge of making the entrée modifiable to be non-keto enough for those not looking to garner the benefits of the keto style.

In many cases it is as simple as adding in an additional source of carbs such as rice, potatoes or bread to fill out the menu and fill up the family.

What follows is our list of recipe posts for entrée items that we have had success with. In each recipe we will endeavour to include suggestions for expanding the recipe to satisfy the non-keto diners.

We hope you enjoy the recipes, find them easy to follow and that they assist you in putting the fun in your dinners.
