Best Keto Dressings

My favorite part of the ketogenic lifestyle is the salad dressings! You might think I am exaggerating but I promise you, if you follow me on social media (link to my Instagram), you know I eat a lot of salads! And I like them saucy. That is why I had to share with you the best keto dressings recipes that I have created over my journey and they are lick your lips good!

Here is my proof, a snipped section from my instagram – come check me out!

There are many ways to get extra healthy fats into your meal plan and dressings or sauces are one of them.

Some people chose to eat a fattier cut of meat but I stopped doing that somewhere around year two on the ketogenic diet because I couldn’t accurately calculate my fat intake, so I started to eat a lot of low-fat meat, i.e: eggs, chicken breast, tuna and other white fish. I would add the fat into the dish in way of sauces or avocado on the side so I knew exactly what I was putting in my body.

A ketogenic lifestyle is all about figuring out what works for your individual complex self. It is your journey, but I am just saying testing out one of the best keto dressings highlighted below might make lunch or dinner time just a little more exciting!

Before I get into the recipes, if you are not into preparing recipes at home, I’d have to say that Primal Kitchen is my favorite store-bought salad and meat dressings. You can check out there selection at Natura Market. They actually have a Keto Kit that you can purchase from them with BBQ sauce and ketchup included, along with 5 other dressings.
