Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? This list of the Best Keto Recipes for the 4th of July not only INCLUDES cake but lots of other yummy recipes too!

Holidays, parties, and BBQs can be filled with loads of tempting food that is not conducive to your low-carb eating plan.

I find the best way to ward off temptation is to make 1 or 2 of my favorite dishes to bring to the party.

Are you tempted by chips and dip? Make your own!

Perhaps the bigger temptation is all the amazing desserts? Bring a homemade keto cake!

And you know you’ll get thirsty, so bring a pitcher of your favorite sugar-free drink!

Truth be told, I love to bring deceptively healthy recipes around all my non-keto friends to show them how yummy a ketogenic diet can be. People are much more open to a healthy diet when they know how amazing the food can be ?
