The keto diet is characterized by the intake of low carbs, medium protein, and high fat. It is the perfect diet for incorporating your favorite cured meats into every meal! While it may sound easy to indulge in meats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you will quickly realize you need some recipes to spice things up a bit, rather than eating steak three times a day.
