Did someone say brownies for breakfast?!
Longer days and warmer temps can only mean one thing...summer is almost here! Your local farmers’ markets and grocery stores are soon to be full of summer staples like zucchini and berries, which are the perfect additions to any keto meal plan.
If you’re new here, we created our first seasonal eating guide for Spring with a day full of recipes that incorporated our favorite seasonal produce. We’re back at it again to bring you some easy recipes perfect for summertime. Think grilled steak, pesto pasta, and ice cream sundaes...but all keto-friendly! Enjoy these recipes outside for maximum summer vibes—they are just asking to be devoured on a porch or at a picnic!
Here’s what’s in season right now:
Chia pudding is the perfect summer breakfast option for a loungy morning because (drumroll)... there’s no cooking required! Just stir chia seeds into non-dairy milk with a pinch of your sweetener of choice, let sit overnight, and wake up to a thick and delicious pudding. Top with in-season berries for added sweetness and flavor. Enjoy by the spoonful while soaking up the sun.
For a carb-conscious take on a picnic classic, use zoodles to make a delicious pasta salad. This recipe includes tons of in-season produce including basil and tomato, and also makes a super fresh side for dinner. If you want to make your life even easier, meal prep the shredded chicken early in the week so it’s ready for your salad each day. (Psst...looking for more meal prepping tips?
