It's easy to get stuck in a recipe rut on keto, especially if you've been on it for a few months. Sure, eating mostly the same meals every day can help simplify your routine, but standard keto meals get old after a while and can start to taste a bit bland once you're used to them. If you're tired of shoving down ground meat and greens for what seems like the 100th time and want to revamp your diet without breaking keto, then it's time you checked out Factor.
Factor is one of America's leading meal subscription services that sends ready-to-eat dishes for those on a ketogenic diet or those looking for low-carb options. They offer 35 healthy, restaurant-quality meals each week that are shipped fresh and crafted by gourmet chefs. Here, we'll take a look at 5 of Factor's most popular, flavor-packed keto meals for Summer 2023 that will not only help you stay on keto, but rekindle your relationship with it.
1. Queso Fundido with Cilantro Cauliflower "Rice"
I don't know about you, but when I'm on keto I'm ALL about cheese. While it's best to limit the consumption of certain cheeses due to their carb profiles, keto typically allows for a bit of indulgence in this amazing type of food. So, when you're feeling like it's time for some cheesy goodness, look no further than Queso Fundido!
This classic Mexican party appetizer consists of bubbling-hot cheese and savory spiced meat sauce. The ground beef is spruced up with chili powder, garlic, and cumin and then topped with molten queso made from an incredible mixture of cream cheese, cheddar, Monterey Jack, and roasted green chiles. This dish is paired with tender cilantro cauliflower “rice" and even comes with spicy roasted tomato salsa on the side in case you want to turn it up a notch.
Each serving of this meal is 720 calories and its macronutrient profile is 57 g of fat, 12 g of carbs (7 g sugar, 4 g fiber), and 42 g of protein.
2. Loaded Bacon Shredded Chicken with Sauteed Spinach, Green Beans & Ranch Sour Cream
Another fan-favorite food on keto is bacon. But rather than overindulge in bacon, we believe it's best used to add the finishing touch to a meal. Hence, Loaded Bacon Shredded Chicken.
This dish combines shredded chicken, spinach, and bacon with smoked gouda, sharp cheddar, and cream cheese. This meal is packed with flavor and comes with a side of ranch sour cream to add just a bit more character. To balance this flavor fest, the meal is paired with roasted green beans.
Each serving of this meal is 670 calories and its macronutrient profile is 50 g of fat, 14 g of carbs (7 g sugar, 3 g fiber), and 40 g of protein.
3. Chorizo Chili with Shredded Cheese & Scallion Sour Cream
Traditional chili is typically made with ground beef...but have you ever tried chili combined with pork chorizo? It's a game-changer.
Meet Chorizo Chili, a protein-packed meal made up of ground pork, pork chorizo, and ground beef. This delicious, savory mixture of meat is simmered with savory onions, peppers, tomato, chili powder, and cilantro. Not to mention it comes with two cooling garnishes (one is a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese, the other is scallion sour cream) which balance out the bite of spice and help it to melt in your mouth.
Each serving of this meal is 620 calories and its macronutrient profile is 44 g of fat, 15 g of carbs (6 g sugar, 3 g fiber), and 45 g of protein.
4. White Cheddar Chicken with Broccoli-Parmesan "Grits", Roasted Green Beans & Sliced Almonds
And now for some good ol' Southern comfort food. Grilled marinated chicken is topped with a slice of white cheddar cheese and served over creamy broccoli cheddar grits. Sure, it's not the grits your grandma used to make, but we think they're quite the upgrade for those on keto. This delicious dish is paired with roasted chili green beans topped with garlic chili butter and toasted almonds. Cheesy, crunchy, and a bit of spicy - it's got a bit of everything.
Each serving of this meal is 650 calories and its macronutrient profile is 46 g of fat, 16 g of carbs (6 g sugar, 6 g fiber), and 46 g of protein.
5. Indian Butter Chicken with Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice
Bet you've never heard of an Indian keto dish before! This savory meal combines juicy garam masala-spiced chicken with a bed of cauliflower “rice” enhanced with cilantro, lime juice, and garlic. To enhance the overall flavor and really take your taste buds for a ride, it's then swirled in a rich tomato-based sauce made with butter, heavy cream, cumin, coriander, chili powder plus even more aromatic masala spices.
Each serving of this meal is 640 calories and its macronutrient profile is 51 g of fat, 16 g of carbs (6 g sugar, 5 g fiber), and 31 g of protein.
