The ketogenic diet—a diet in which one consumes low-carb, high-fat foods—really hit the mainstream this year. The diet was so popular, not only have many celebs, including Halle Berry, jumped on the keto diet bandwagon, but searches on Pinterest for “keto thanksgiving recipes” were also up 175 percent compared to last year, according to ABC News.
In short, the keto diet requires that 5 to 10 percent of your total calories come from carbs, and you can only consume 20 to 50 grams of net carbs per day. It’s not an easy feat.
That said, it’s not surprising finding keto-friendly store-bought products can be a challenge. But there’s no shortage of keto recipes, including keto-friendly soup recipes.
In the cold winter months, a warm bowl of soup undoubtedly always hits the spot, so we’ve rounded up 11 keto-friendly soup recipes you’ll want to try immediately. From Instant Pot soups to hearty, creamy soups that might just remind you of home, here are the soups you’ll want to try tonight.
