There are few things as great as taking a bite of one of your favorite comfort foods. They are the foods that make you feel warm, full, nostalgic, and happy. But sometimes those often carb-laden comfort dishes don’t always align with certain diets. Additionally, finding keto-friendly comfort food recipes, in particular, can sometimes prove to be especially difficult.
The keto diet is a very specific diet plan that involves eating foods that have either no or very few carbohydrates, as well as foods that are high in fat. This helps the body to stay in ketosis, in which your body doesn’t consume enough carbohydrates during the day to burn for energy, so it burns fat instead.
Followers of the keto diet tend to avoid foods with a lot of sugar in them or those made from grains. However, this can limit your ability to enjoy a lot of classic comfort food dishes.
Thankfully, there are always workarounds to help make a meal keto-friendly. Don’t stress about putting together a meal you’ll fully enjoy while also remaining faithful to your diet. Try any of these 13 keto comfort food recipes, and you’ll see it’s easy as keto-friendly pie.
