Best Keto Blogs of 2021

Beginning a new weight loss diet is not always a simple transition. And the ketogenic diet — a trendy low-carbohydrate, high-fat plan that may produce quick results — is no exception.

One of the biggest hurdles of going keto is putting and keeping your body in ketosis. Ketosis is a natural metabolic state that results in your body burning fat instead of carbs for fuel (when it doesn’t have enough carbs). So, naturally, to achieve ketosis, you’ll have to say goodbye to most carbs and hello to fat — and lots of it.

It depends on which version of keto you’re doing, but generally, you’ll aim to get 5 to 10 percent of your total calories from carbs on the diet. The goal is to consume only 20 to 50 grams (g) of net carbs per day — or less than the equivalent of ½ cup of long-grain brown rice, which contains 25 g of total carbs (and about 23 g net carbs), according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Net carbs, which are an unofficial term, are defined as total carbs minus fiber and sugar alcohols, according to the website for the Atkins diet, another low-carb plan. For most people, going that low won’t be easy: The typical American woman over age 20 gets nearly 50 percent of her calories from carbs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). For example, on a 1,400-calorie diet, this would be equivalent to about 175 g of carbs daily.

Meanwhile, you’ll need to reach for lots of healthy high-fat foods, like fatty fish, avocado, olive oil, nuts, and eggs. Butter, bacon, and cheese are also allowed, though these are among the less-healthy choices for fat. The goal is to get about 70 to 80 percent of your daily calories from fats overall.

That’s just part of the struggle when following keto. You’ll likely also see various side effects, especially in the first few weeks, such as headaches, fatigue, and drowsiness — all signs of the so-called keto flu.

To overcome challenges like these, it’s apparent that what a keto dieter really needs is resourceful information and tons of encouragement. “One reason why the keto diet has continued to be popular is that it fosters a sense of community,” says Melissa Mitri, RD, owner of Melissa Mitri Nutrition in Milford, Connecticut. Keto blogs can help you feel as if you’re supported in the diet, which you need, since it can be restrictive and there are many hurdles to overcome when starting. One thing to keep in mind, says Mitri, is that these blogs are limited in that the authors are not medical or nutrition experts but are speaking from their own experience. “Remember that everyone is different and there is no one diet that works for everyone,” she says.

While it seems as if everyone is on the keto diet, a low-carb, high-fat plan isn’t necessarily better than another diet for weight loss or managing type 2 diabetes, notes a review published in the September-October 2019 issue of the Journal of Clinical Lipidology. Because the keto diet limits or eliminates foods known to be healthy and heart protective (for example, beans, whole grains, and most fruits) and encourages those that can increase cardiovascular risks (red meat, for one), the authors recommend that people work closely with their healthcare team when following keto.

Many people jump into keto because they’ve seen friends and loved ones have rousing success on the diet. Indeed, a low-calorie version of keto helped overweight and obese adults lose an average of 22 pounds in four weeks or less, according to a review published in the November 2019 issue of Reviews in Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders. Still, not everyone is in favor of the diet going mainstream. Medical experts in the July 2019 edition of The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) cautioned that the diet isn’t a slam-dunk fix for obesity or type 2 diabetes — and more research is needed to examine the long-term health implications.

Making an informed choice, rather than riding the keto trend, is important to ensure that you start safely and get the most out of the diet. The blogs below are exemplars in the keto category. Whether you’re struggling with exercise motivation, diet logistics, or looking for out-of-the-box keto recipes, you can be sure to find all of that and more here.

The 20 Best Keto Blogs for 2020

by Caitlin H,

Jun 22, 2020

So you’ve chosen to try out this whole thing keto thing, but aren’t really sure where to begin?

Keto diets are a great choice for consistent, often quick weight loss.* In a nutshell, ketogenic diets work by forcing your body into ketosis, the physiological state where your liver produces ketones to break down fat instead of carbs. (It’s what we do when our bodies are in survival mode.)

They do that by cutting out sugar and carbs and focusing on healthy fats and protein-based eating instead.

Diet-to-Go’s Keto-Carb30 plan takes the thinking out of it by providing chef-prepared, delicious meals with an average of 30 net carbs per day that are delivered right to your door or available to pick up fresh in many cities.

We want to help set you up for success when you choose to go keto. We rounded up the 20 best keto blogs for 2020 — which offer everything from start guides, to personal journeys from others who have done keto, to recipes and much, much more!

1) Ruled.me by Craig

When Craig founded Ruled.me, his goal was to make a keto approach to weight loss and healthy living as approachable, doable and fun as possible. The website’s goal is to provide keto recipes and useful information that will motivate and applaud you on your weight loss journey. A team of doctors and specialists do just that, with everything from meal plans, tips, resources, diet plans and much, much more.

Sample Recipe: Keto Tex Mex Open-Faced Burger

“Together we can create a healthier world – starting by ruling our own health through nutrition, research and discipline.”

2) Chocolate Covered Katie by Katie

So you have a sweet tooth? That doesn’t mean you have to derail your keto diet. Enter Katie, a lover of cake, chocolate (obviously) and sharing lower-calorie dessert recipe with millions of readers around the world. Katie has been featured in countless TV shows and magazines (for good reason). Use her recipe index to search for pages and pages of keto-friendly desserts. Plus, her blog includes her personal day-to-day happenings (including an emotional post about her battle with exercise addiction and online bullying.) It’s no surprise she has one of the top-rated blogs on the internet.

Sample Recipe: Keto Ice Cream — Just 4 Ingredients

“I’d hope that what people can get out of my blog is the message it’s important to treat your body kindly; to nourish it with real-food ingredients; to truly enjoy the foods you are eating; and to take in enough calories for the strength and energy to live your best life possible.”

3) Yummy Inspirations by Jolene

Jolene has struggled with an autoimmune disease that has led her to try several different diets, which she shares on her blog. It’s also led her to seek natural medicine (she even went to college to study it). Jolene’s mission is to inspire people with healthy, nutritious meals that make following a restrictive diet easier. Her recipe index contains hundreds of tried-and-tested meals that do just that.

Sample Recipe: 15 Sweet Keto Snacks

“I hope to return one day in the not too distant future so that I can formally help people who have struggled as I have.

4) Gimme Delicious by Layla

Ever get home after a long day and could barely stand the thought of putting together a meal for yourself or your family? Then “Gimme Delicious” is the place for you. Layla has a whole section of her site dedicated to doing keto simply and scrumptiously. Layla tries out her recipes on her family (she’s the mom of two beautiful little girls) and likes to photograph them, too. Sticking to the keto diet is a cinch with Layla’s help.

Sample Recipe: 90 Second Microwavable Low-Carb Keto Bread

5) Gnom-Gnom by Paola

It’s not just about made-from-scratch keto recipes at “Gnom-Gnom.” For Paola, it’s a way of eating. Through “Gnom-Gnom,” she created a community for keto and paleo enthusiasts to share what they’re eating with others. Paola knows that very few people have the time to spend hours preparing a meal, which is why the recipes on her blog are focused on using wholesome ingredients and real food for quick, easy, mouth-watering creations you’re sure to love.

Sample Recipe: 15-Minute Grain-Free Keto Tortillas

“I’m a believer that smells have the power to evoke the past, bringing back sounds and even other smells that have no match in the present.”

6) Life Made Sweeter by Kelly

Kelly launched her blog in 2013 to share her passion for healthy living and cooking with the world. More than nine years later, it’s grown to become a go-to place for people seeking keto recipes for themselves and their family. Kelly herself has had quite a journey on her blog. She was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder in 2016, the catalyst for her to revamp her diet to focus on even more balanced and nutritious meals. Kelly has millions of followers and her recipes have been featured in everything from Cooking Light to “The Today Show” to Food Network and more. She also shows readers how to use Sunday meal prepping to take off the pressure for a good meal during the work week, and many of her recipes have a delicious Asian flare.

Sample Recipe: Peanut Butter Protein Balls

“Hopefully I can inspire you to try some new recipes in your kitchen to share with your family and loved ones.”

7) Kirbie’s Cravings by Jennifer (AKA Kirbie)

Jennifer got her nickname “Kirbie” as a child because she was always hungry. What started as a hobby and stress-reliever for Kirbie has since blossomed into a full-time job. At Kirbie’s Cravings are pages and pages of healthy, keto-friendly recipes, food photography, dining out reviews and travel experiences. Her husband, “Mr. K,” also plays a big role in running the blog (think taste-tester, hand model, light holder, those kinds of things). Jennifer has authored two cookbooks and been featured in many a TV show and publication.

Sample Recipe: Keto Eggrolls

“My eating philosophy is that it’s all about balance. I share a lot of healthy meals (with an emphasis on low carb) but I also have a serious sweet tooth so you’ll find many indulgent desserts on this blog as well.”

8) Low Carb with Jennifer by Jennifer

If ever there was someone to look to for guidance with the keto diet, it’s Jennifer. She’s been living that lifestyle for more than a decade. (It even helped her lose 60 pounds). Jennifer is a mom of two little ones and stays at home full-time running her blog (with the help of her husband and mom). On her blog, you’ll join the more than 1 million monthly users who find tasty low-carb and keto-friendly recipes, as well as a free low-carb guide.

Who says you can’t lose weight by eating some of the best food you’ve ever tasted? Mellissa’s blog is a place to do just that. She launched it in 2011 as a way to chronicle her recipes and keep in touch with family. When she turned her attention to low-carb and keto meals in January 2012, it quickly took off. Mellissa found that through her recipes, she was able to address a common problem others found while following a low-carb diet: the food was too boring to stay on-track. With her help and weekly keto menu plans, she turned that around and helps tens of thousands of people reach their goals.

Sample Recipe: Keto Salmon with Cranberry Orange Butter

“Knowing that my recipes are helping so many of you reach your goals through low carb eating, really makes me happy. So many of you have had amazing success.”

10) All Day I Dream About Food by Carolyn

The way Carolyn sees it, she didn’t choose the low-carb lifestyle — it chose her. Carolyn was diagnosed with gestational diabetes during her third pregnancy, forcing her to find new ways to enjoy her lifelong passion for baking and cooking. She turns common, high-carb recipes into keto-friendly deliciousness — and throws in keto meal plans for good measure.

Sample Recipe: Keto Enchilada Casserole

“I have discovered that with a little ingenuity and some perseverance, many high-carb recipes can be made over into low-carb treats without sacrificing flavor.”

11) Sugar Free Mom by Brenda

Brenda’s following has grown to become the most popular spot on the web for others looking for sugar-free recipes. That’s because among her catalogues of recipes are not just sugar-free concoctions, but ones for people with allergies who want to follow a low-carb diet and who have dairy or gluten intolerances. Brenda’s three children keep her busy, but she’s managed to balance that with a healthy lifestyle for herself, her family and her devoted followers. Her blog’s latest focus is all things keto and includes recipes, meal plans, detoxes and a one-stop shop for all Brenda’s favorite kitchen tools.

Sample Recipe: Keto Chicken and Mushroom Casserole

“I pray YOU will find help, encouragement, laughter, joy, ideas, direction, fabulous family friendly recipes and most of all HOPE that you too can lead a life free of sugar and LOVE it!”

12) Ketogasm by Tasha

It’s hard not to love Tasha’s style from the start. She knows taking on a keto diet can be challenging, which is why her goal is to make it fun (and therefore more doable). Tasha herself struggled with her body — at age 30, she had infertility, PCOS, pre-diabetes, depression and weighed 251 pounds. By embarking on the keto diet, she shed 90 pounds and used a keto diet to provide her body with the proper nutrients to combat her PCOS. Fast-forward to today and she’s the mom of two little ones and found her self-confidence along the way. Tasha believes eating right should be equal parts pleasure and nutrition — and that mindset is evident in every recipe, meal plan and guide you’ll find at “Ketogasm.”

Sample Recipe: Keto Alfredo Sauce

“I’m not a health guru, medical professional, or even someone who claims to have all the answers. I’m just a lady doing keto right along with you. … I realize flexibility and humility have been vital to my own learning. I hope that is reflected in my writing and helps you keep an open mind as you learn about keto yourself.”

13) Stay Snatched by Brandi

There’s no doubt about it — Brandi loves who she is, and that shines through every single page of her blog. She’s beautiful and intelligent, working as a CPA by day and a recipe developer by night. Brandi grew up as the “skinny girl” for most of her life, but when her metabolism slowed in adulthood, she started to research ways she could maintain her foodie philosophy while still being healthy. She started exercising and developing recipes that were balanced and nutritious, easy to prepare and foodie-approved. Much of her blog focuses on easy, tasty keto recipes that are unique and flavorful.

Sample Recipe: Easy Keto Low-Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole

“Everyone has their own personal definition and expectation of what looks good. It’s relative to them. I love the term ‘Snatched.’ It’s a fun way to become motivated and stay fixated on what your goals are.”

14) Headbanger’s Kitchen by Sahil

What’s “Headbanger’s Kitchen?” It’s basically where metal music meets amazing cooking. Sahil is no stranger to cooking — he’s been doing it since he was 12 years old. He started the blog in 2011 with one goal in mind: Share amazing recipes that never skimp on flavor and fun. Recipes have changed over the years, and the current focus is on keto, but you’ll find pretty much anything you’re looking for in the robust indexes and website pages.

Sample Recipe: Keto Mayonnaise

“With more focus on Keto recipes in the recent past, the show has grown tremendously and it’s only going to get better from here on. Cheers — and keep cooking!”

15) Joy Filled Eats by Taryn

Taryn lost over 50 pounds — and she did it happily by developing low-carb, sugar-free recipes that she, her husband and her five children could all enjoy. No stranger to the kitchen, Taryn draws inspiration from memories of rolling out pie crust with her grandmother — she even still uses the same rolling pin!

Sample Recipe: Chicken Cordon-Bleu Casserole — Low-Carb, Keto, Easy

“The kitchen has always been a joy filled place in my life. Even in the midst of dieting and weight loss food should bring joy.”

16) Real Balanced by Sara

If there’s one thing Sara loves almost as much as her full-time job running her blog, it’s developing low-carb, keto-friendly recipes that are packed with flavor and simple to prepare. Sara’s blog reflects her bright personality — there’s a happy feel to every post and page. Sara’s keto diet approach is a result of years of medical issues. She spent a long time (and lots of money) trying to figure out why she had sleep and GI problems, only to find that going keto made all the difference in the world for her. She believes it can do the same for you — and her blog is the perfect place to find out!

Sample Post: 50 Keto Slow Cooker Recipes

“I follow a strict ketogenic diet that is entirely nut-free. Why do I do this? Because it makes me feel like a human again, FINALLY! … My life improved so drastically, so quickly that I’ve never looked back!”

17) It’s Simple by How to This and That by Melissa

Melissa used to be a single mom of two girls grinding it out each day in a 8-5 job. One day, she met her husband and decided to take a leap of faith and launch a blog dedicated to her passion: creating simple, healthy, keto-friendly recipes. She never looked back, and her original blog blossomed into the full-blown online business it is today. On “It’s Simple,” you’ll find countless keto and family-friendly recipes created around the idea that eating healthy doesn’t have to be difficult. There’s even a section dedicated to crafting, with fun project ideas and tips and tricks to make them the best.

Sample Recipe: No Bake Cookies

18) Low-Carb So Simple by Elviira

Elviira is an authentic blogger who researches and develops each of the many sugar-free, keto-friendly recipes found at “Low-Carb So Simple.” Elviira is a certified Nutritional Adviser and certified Keto Coach who spends a lot of time reading scientific papers and cookbooks to develop meals that fully fit with the keto, low-carb lifestyle. Elviira herself has been plagued by health issues, which ultimately led her to the keto diet long before it hit the mainstream. She’s been eating that way for 10 years — giving her a major leg up on the competition when it comes to developing easy, nutritious recipes with just a few simple ingredients.

Sample Recipe: 2-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

“There is no one, certain diet that is perfect for everyone. Instead, you have to explore what is perfect for you. Everybody is an individual with individual needs. In case you have found that the ketogenic low-carb, gluten-free and sugar-free lifestyle benefits you, I’m at your service.”

19) Keto Karma by Suzanne

Suzanne spent much of her life overweight. In January 2015, she decided to try the keto diet, and she’s never looked back. Suzanne lost 100 pounds and uses her own journey to inspire others trying to do the same.

9 Best Keto Blogs To Follow in 2020 | by Hana Hamzic | Age of Awareness

Here are some of the best keto blogs to educate, inspire, and motivate at every stage of your keto diet journey.

First, think about what you’re hoping to gain from keto blogs. Are you only looking for recipes? Or are you looking for authoritative information about the ketogenic diet? That’s because there’s no point in wasting your time navigating through blogs that don’t offer the kind of info you need to make your diet work.

Once you’ve decided what your priority is, make sure the blogs you’re following offer quality content. But how do you decide what counts as “quality?”

Say, for example, you’re looking for keto diet recipes. In that case, you first need to familiarize yourself with the basics of keto nutrition and check if the recipe blog you’re looking at follows these rules. You also want to make sure that their recipes have nutrition information, preferably where you can see the macros for each serving of the meal. An additional plus is any blog that has a YouTube channel — demonstration videos make keto cooking easy for keto beginners.

But if you just need reliable information about the ketogenic diet, choose blogs with content written or reviewed by medical professionals. This can prevent you from falling prey to misinformation.

Some blogs offer both, which can help you get the best of both worlds: loads of keto diet info with tasty keto recipes.

Below are some of the most informative and authoritative keto diet blogs on the Internet. Most of these offer both informative and keto cooking content. They’re listed in random order.

Top 17 Keto Bloggers Reveal Their Blogging Secrets

Sharing is caring!

Last Updated on

Alicia Vikander used it to reach peak-badass for the filming of Tomb Raider. LeBron James used it to shed pounds quickly from his massive frame.

The ketogenic diet is attracting attention from those seeking to lose weight and improve their health and performance.

Keto is sometimes referred to as a low-carb diet or as a low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diet. Within the wider realm of low-carb diets, advocates find (and create) overlaps with paleo, raw, vegan, Bulletproof, and other trends.

Bloggers and vloggers are in the lead, building community, attracting droves of readers — even launching their own products.

We interviewed 17 of the top keto and low-carb expert bloggers to find out why they started their blog, what has worked for them, and what they wish they’d known when they first started out.



Meet Our Panel of Blogging Experts

Each of our blogging experts has a fascinating story to tell.

It seems all of their lives improved after adopting their diet — and blogging.


Antya Markin, Queen Keto

Antya Markin grew up with a passion for Italian food and cooking from scratch. A self-confessed “carbo-holic” she recalls “I couldn’t even eat a salad without an entire box of breadsticks to go with it!”


Due to an inherited medical condition, Antya’s cholesterol spiked to dangerous levels.

She was given a life expectancy of “mid-30s, maybe the 40s with a bit of luck” — if she took statins. The statins produced negative side effects.

Antya’s breakthrough came with her discovery of the ketogenic diet.

She was able to free herself from her cholesterol and pain issues.

Now 55 and radiating health, she uses her creativity to publish inventive recipes for those who want the benefits of keto but would like a rich variety of dishes to choose from.


Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Lezlee Parrish began her exploration of a ketogenic diet back in 2013 when she was struggling with depression and other health issues.

“I desperately needed to get my life back,” she recounts.


After losing 45 pounds, and undergoing some elective surgery, Lezlee continued with keto and began to see dramatic health improvements.

Through her blog and social media, Lezlee has become part of a vibrant keto community.

Two years ago, with encouragement from Suzanne Ryan of Keto Karma, Lezlee launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for her tasty Srirachoy sauce. (We can’t wait to try the “Spicy AF” version.) This sauce even has its own Instagram channel.

“I can honestly say that keto has given me my life back,” says Lezlee.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

It was an easy and quick way to get the nutrients he needed, and sufficient electrolytes, in a tasty grab-n-go combination.

Keto Chow now has a 5-star average rating and comes in flavors like Salted Caramel and Root Beer Float.

Chris’s blog provides a guide to the basics of nutritional ketosis, recipes, getting started information, and plenty of helpful info on being successful with keto.

Q&A With the Keto Blogging Experts

We asked these blogging experts the same five questions.

There’s nothing like learning from experience, and their willingness to share theirs provides a unique opportunity to learn what makes for a successful blog.



Why did you start blogging?

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

My home-made keto recipes seemed to be a hit with everyone and over time I was encouraged to share them with the world.

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

I needed to create a resource for recipes that I could send to the patients of the nutrition practice I was working for.

As I could not find the right recipes I decided to start creating my own.

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

I had been doing Keto for about 6 months and was compiling a lot of recipes and thought it might be helpful to share them with others doing keto!

So I started an Instagram page and then later I created my website.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

Having a resource to inform people on how to do a proper keto diet for body recomposition.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Mostly I was just looking for a way to share my experience trying out nutritionally complete “future foods” – that later morphed into documenting my experience with a ketogenic diet.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

It began purely as a hobby so I could collect all my low-carb family recipes in one place.

I then started writing articles to summarize the research I had done into why low-carb was such an effective way to prevent the big 3 – obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto

In 2012, there were very few other people eating the way I was eating (veg keto) and so I wanted to share my recipes and experiences.

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

It first started as a hobby, born out of a need to lose weight. I started recreating all of my favorite dishes into low carb versions and documenting it. From there, it sort of took on a life of its own and turned into a passion-driven career.

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

I was looking to lose weight with a low carb diet and wanted a way to keep track of recipes I was making as well as my progress.

Kim, Low Carb Maven

There weren’t many recipes available when I started my low carb lifestyle, so I did a lot of experimenting.

I wanted to share the low carb recipes I was developing at home for my family — finding ways to reinvent old favorites and creating new ones.

We were enjoying the food and I hoped others would, too.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

I have always had a passion for recipe developing and missed working in an environment that allowed me to do that.

So I started blogging and sharing my recipes with as many as people as I can

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Enjoyment of writing; need to provide a space for people to find answers to medical questions.

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

A need to create food art and share it with others.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

I started blogging on the suggestion of my 7-year-old son as a way to share my recipes online for people that also have a restrictive diet or food allergies like I do.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

Our goal was to provide information and tools for people to live a ketogenic lifestyle.

We saw there was a desperate need to get more of this information out to the world and we wanted a great platform to share it on.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

When I found help from a gluten-free, sugar-free low-carb lifestyle, I didn’t find simple enough recipes so I had to develop everything from scratch.

I’m a very impatient person so reading long ingredient lists and making complex recipes was painful.

At some point, my husband suggested I could start blogging so that other people would also benefit from my recipes.

In 2012, I started my Low-Carb, So Simple blog where I have been sharing recipes with 5 ingredients or less. I love challenges and keeping the recipes simple but delicious is challenging but very rewarding.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

I started blogging when I had lost over 40 pounds and people were asking for my recipes.

It soon became a pain to send them by e-mail, and then one day my brother said, “You should just put those recipes on a blog!”

Is 50 the new 30? Vivica Menegaz, (left) one year shy of 50, and Antya Markin, photographed in 2016 at 53. Both make a natural appeal for their food philosophies, blogs, and books.



What’s your secret to staying motivated & inspired long term?

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

I started in 2011 and I just never gave up. I took a giant leap of faith and quit my job in 2011 to do it full time.

I definitely wasn’t ready financially or emotionally, but I just knew that I had to keep going.

It took literal blood, sweat, and tears to get Peace, Love, and Low Carb where it is today. I just refused to give up, no matter how hard things got.

It turned out to be the best decision I have ever made.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

I enjoyed blogging as a creative hobby at first and never expected to make an income from it.

I found that I loved it even more than my day job and just kept learning as much as I could about every aspect of it.

To motivate myself, I told myself that once I could consistently earn more on my blog than my day job income, I would quit my day job. I retired from my day job last year.

I stay motivated by continuing to learn new skills and hone older skills. The job is always changing and never gets boring.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

It boils down to the community.

Developing content isn’t easy. We spend hours and hours creating infographics, writing articles, and creating video content each week.

However, every story we hear and all of the feedback we get back from people on how this information has helped change their life — that what makes us keep going.

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

My nutrition practice and the needs of my patients.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

The results from our clients and members.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

I receive emails every single day from readers who have transformed their life through low-carb nutrition.

I have helped more people in the last 4 years regain their health via my website than in the last 25 years as a pharmacist dispensing their medication.

I am inspired each and every day by the people in my free support group who completely turn their life around.

There are even two babies who were born to women who were told they were infertile because of hormonal issues, which were resolved when they addressed their insulin resistance (caused by a high-carb diet).

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

The keto lifestyle can be simple. Think meat, fish, cheese, eggs, fibrous veggies, some fruit.

But most people miss the delicious, albeit terrible, foods they used to eat, so I set about recreating classic dishes that have been healthified and low-carbified, such as pasta, gnocchi, pizza, cakes, biscuits, etc.

I have an Italian heritage, so many of my re-inventions are based on high-end patisserie and real Italian traditional foods.

There are many keto recipe bloggers out there, but I guess I bring a different keto experience to discerning readers who want more than the usual bacon poppers or zoodles with marinara sauce.

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

I actually stopped blogging a couple years after I started the sugarfreelowcarbrecipes.com website (which is what Low Carb Yum started out as).

Then, a couple years later, I realized that my posts were being shared and helping a lot of people make it through a low carb lifestyle.

So what motivates me to keep it going is the feedback from the audience on how they have improved their health with the help of my blog.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

One of the things that inspires me most is the frequent comments and e-mails I get from readers who tell me they are losing weight using my recipes.

That kind of communication always makes my day and inspires me to keep going!

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto

The veg keto community is absolutely amazing. Every kind email, comment, direct message or random shout-out made me realize how many people are actually using these recipes and really keeps me motivated and inspired.

Plus, it’s food and health, which are two of my favorite subjects.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

I am very passionate about the ketogenic lifestyle and really it is my followers that help keep me motivated.

Without their support and feedback, it would be a lot harder

Kim, Low Carb Maven

I find motivation in my love to cook and create in the kitchen, but I have to do it spontaneously or it isn’t fun.

Many bloggers have their editorial calendars planned months in advance. I find planning stifles me. I need to wing-it or it feels like a job.

I’m inspired by regional cuisine, my mother’s recipes, and my taste buds.

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

I truly stand behind what I do. Cooking, recipe writing they are my hobbies, but helping people is my passion.

Finding my voice and really connecting with others and inspiring them is what has kept me going.

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Honestly, it’s the community that keeps me going. Everyone is so supportive of one another and it’s just so inspiring to me.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

I think the simple answer is that I just love blogging so much!

I love to develop recipes, write text and shoot photos & videos. It also makes me happy and inspired that people like my recipes so much.

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Engagement with audience

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Dunno, I just keep posting whatever new and interesting comes along!

Hot! Seven of Chris’s Keto Chow flavors are sold out. Bookmark our free Blogger’s Guide to Selling Online to get information on how to sell your own products online.



What do you think had the biggest impact on making your blog a success?

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Probably the simplicity of my recipes.

I hate finding a good meal idea online only to find it requires 10+ ingredients and some you may have never even heard of! So I strive to make my recipes as simple as possible. Hence, The Lazy Keto!

Keto doesn’t have to be difficult to be a success.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

Keeping it evidence and science-based.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Well, it was pretty small until I started using my blog to document product development of Keto Chow. It’s something I’m passionate about so it just kinda happened organically.

Kim, Low Carb Maven

I can’t attribute my success to any one thing. I think that persistence (publishing regularly), continuing to improve (photography, styling, writing, SEO), and befriending bloggers in my niche have all contributed greatly.

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

Number 1: PASSION!. Number 2: TIME!

A lot of time was needed to start the blog site from scratch, especially as I had no prior web knowledge or help from anyone.

Nowadays most of my time is devoted to my recipe development, sourcing new low-carb products, testing, etc. etc.

I work totally on my own and do absolutely everything, including site maintenance and photography.

It can be overwhelming at times. I couldn’t do any of it if I had a ‘day’ job. My keto-husband has got used to it – he loves being my initial tester.

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

Being authentic and genuine with my readers. I believe that transparency is the key to connection.

Instead of only sharing the highlight reel of my life and weight loss journey, I shared the good, the bad, and the ugly, in an attempt to help people feel less alone.

Being candid and staying true to my integrity, mission, vision, and values, has been key.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

Integrity. I refuse sponsored posts so I can remain independent and trusted.

This was a difficult financial decision to make, but I believe my reputation is key to my amazing readers placing their trust in me.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

Consistency and determination. I plan each week with everything from marketing, recipes, social media and track my conversions to see what works well and what doesn’t.

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

The popularity of the keto diet in recent years has certainly had the biggest impact on the success of Low Carb Yum. And, all the success stories of my readers in their weight loss journeys has certainly kept the momentum of the site going.

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto

I think perseverance is the main thing. I’ve been blogging for over 6 years now but it definitely took some time to get going.

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Consistency providing answers.

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

Connecting with like-minded bloggers and brands. It’s really hard to grow your audience without the help of friends.

Fostering authentic relationships with brands and bloggers, supporting each other. Teamwork makes the dream work.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

I think that continually learning and not being afraid to fail at new projects, and being willing to fail at something until you get better at it has been the key to success.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

Being authentic and transparent. Our goal is to protect and help this community as much as possible.

We haven’t sold anything in three years. Our goal is to help foster this conversation and bring people together.

The ketogenic community has always been supportive and the Ketogenic.com team feeds off of that energy

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

Networking with other bloggers in my niche, bloggers are amazingly talented and resourceful people.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

Decidation. Taking the trouble. Walking the walk.

The readers know that they get very carefully developed and high-quality recipes when they browse my blog.

It’s a whole experience with all those mouth-watering photos, clear instructions, text, and videos.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

I started Kalyn’s Kitchen when I had lost weight following the South Beach Diet, and at that time there wasn’t another popular site in that same niche.

When South Beach became less popular, I quickly changed my site to focus on all types of carb-conscious eating plans, and I think the ability to sort recipes by the type of diet you’re following is one thing that has kept the blog popular all these years.

Lisa’s recipe videos are featured on YouTube and on her Low Carb Yum blog. Shot from above, these appealing videos feature upbeat music and no talking. Viewers on YouTube will find a link to the recipe placed below the video.



What lesson about blogging do you wish you’d known before starting out?

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

That you have to learn Pinterest and SEO to monetize.

I was really late in the game in optimizing those two and I’ve had to play catch up.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

It took us a while to figure out the impact of video content.

We put out a ton of infographics and articles, but videos allow people to connect on a whole other level that I think we could have started earlier.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

I wish I had invested in classes and learned to use my camera sooner in my blogging career.

Sometimes my being frugal does hold me back.

I just didn’t want to invest money in my blog until it was making money. But I would have benefitted from the knowledge sooner.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

Find your target market and cater to them. My way isn’t always right.

After looking at who I was aiming to capture the attention of and changing my style my business took off in a positive direction.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

It’s tough! You have to be the writer, photographer, developer, email marketer, author, researcher, financial controller, social media whiz, and the coordinator of all things.

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Oh, my! it is definitely a full-time job!

When I started out I never wanted to be one of those blogs/accounts that doesn’t respond to anyone. So, I strive to make time to reply to messages and comments.

We’re all here to help and learn from each other, so I try my best to always be available.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

How to engage the audience more properly.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Get a scalable/performant platform, learn how to take good photos.

Kim, Low Carb Maven

Having a food blog is more than taking a picture and writing a recipe.

It’s important to make connections with your readers. I don’t have a large personality or share much about myself or family in posts, but I manage to connect with readers in comments, on Facebook, and in Newsletters.

This builds trust and repeat traffic.

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Importance of writing regularly.

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

Firstly, I wish I had started out with an SSL certificate for the blog. Instead, I will soon have to embark on a demanding and challenging technical conversion and I’m not looking forward to it.

Secondly, I wish I had invested time to learn about photography before I dived in. I’m still rubbish at it, but I’m getting better. Some of my earlier recipe photos are cringe-worthy!

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

I wish I knew about search engine optimization and the importance of good quality photos when I first got started.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

It takes time to get known. At some point, I was already about to throw in the towel but I’m glad I didn’t!

The success came with time and constant devotion.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

It took me a long time to realize that you don’t have to do everything other bloggers do to be a success.

Now I give myself permission to do it my way, and I’m much happier and still plenty successful.

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto

Don’t get caught up in metrics and start judging the success of your blog based on views/visitors/comments.

Obsessively checking your visits every two hours doesn’t really accomplish anything in the end (I’ve been there). Just keep chugging along.

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

I wish I would have started to learn more about SEO earlier on.

You leave a lot of money on the table when you are not appeasing the Google gods. I just didn’t know any better because everything I have done to build my blog has been self-taught.

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

How to delegate and hire the right help.


Libby’s blog also features YouTube video embeds. This one is her “channel trailer” – a video that introduces viewers to her blog and low-carb diets.



Best advice would you give a new blogger?

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

Don’t give up!

If you really want to do this as a profession, or even as a passion project, or side hustle, you have to treat it like it is a career while it is still a hobby.

Just keep going!

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

The food blogging field is so crowded with talented people that it’s more important than ever to pick a niche you’re passionate about and stick with it.

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

To focus on a specific niche, being too generic does not work in blogging.

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Just start writing about what you love and then don’t give up.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Find something you’re passionate about, interested in, and are going to stick with so your blog doesn’t have 15 posts and then just lay there dormant for a few years collecting dust!

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

Spend the time to learn all you can before jumping in.

It isn’t as easy as just writing a post a few times a week. There’s a lot of technical things that happen behind the scenes as well as learning how to promote content so that your target audience actually sees the site.

And, it’s a lot of work to get traffic to a blog so be prepared to put a lot of hours in. However, it can be very rewarding once you’ve passed that initial stage.

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Just to be present and put out content. Whether it’s big or small, fancy or simple. It will be helpful to someone. Even if it’s just one, it’s all worth it.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

Read, learn, and always stay in the loop of the latest topics of your sphere of influence.

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

Read. Learn. Practice. Ask questions. Prepare. Make time. Enjoy.

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto

Stay passionate! It’s this fire and joy for the subject at hand that will keep your blog interesting and worth visiting.

If you find yourself becoming bored with the subject matter, then your readers will be as well. Give yourself a break and find an angle that inspires you to post about.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

Plan what you want to achieve in the first 12 months.

With a clear picture, focus, and monthly goals you can achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.

Kim, Low Carb Maven

Establish a supportive network of bloggers in your niche who are blogging at the same level or a little higher than you.

You can learn a lot from each other and help one another grow.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

There is no quick answer to anything in blogging — every problem requires time or money. You just have to choose which one.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

Be prepared to post to your blog consistently and for a long time before you see the success. Consistency is the key!

Appreciate your readers by providing them high-quality content consistently.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

Don’t be scared to learn something new and don’t be afraid to fail.

Everyone fails and tris again until something works.

Try to invest in yourself and your blog a little (what you can afford) by taking online classes or worshops.

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

Be authentic. The internet, social media… it’s flooded with curated content.

You can create beautiful content while still staying true, being real and connecting with people. Don’t sell out.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

Find something you are passionate about and document it.

Be authentic and transparent — the world will see through you if you aren’t.

Final Notes and Resources

A big thank you to our interviewees, who persevered to accomplish more than they imagined was possible.

We encourage you to visit and become familiar with their blogs. You’ll learn so much by experiencing their work first-hand.

Key Takeaways

Our bloggers were motivated by their own personal experiences to make success on the ketogenic/low-carb path easier and more enjoyable for others.

Some of their creative ideas included:

  • Providing quick-start guides to help newbies get onboard with the diet.
  • Making it easier to maintain the diet by providing quick and delicious recipes or, in Chris’s case, grab-and-go shakes.
  • Creating a connection and two-way conversation with readers via comments, social media interaction, forums, and opportunities to share testimonials.

Regarding your own blog — no matter the topic — ask yourself: “What might make my target audience’s life easier or more enjoyable?”

How to Start a Food Blog

Are you thinking about starting a food blog?

Maybe your friends and family are always asking for your recipes. Maybe you’ve been told dozens of times you need to start a blog!

Does that sound like you? If so, keep reading.

Starting a blog can be fun, fulfilling, empowering!  Let me tell you, blogging has been the best job I’ve ever had! It’s allowed me to turn my passion into a career — and support my family while working from home.

I know that “starting a blog” sounds time-consuming, complicated, and techy. But really, it’s not too hard. If you have 15 minutes and can follow 5 simple steps, you can do it, too.

So, I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that new bloggers can use to see the products and services that I use with my blog.

How to Start A Blog

When I started blogging, I didn’t really know where to begin. I wish I’d had a step-by-step guide like this one to walk me through each step.

So hey, if you need help getting started, I’m here for ya.

Whether you’re just thinking about starting a blog  — or what to upgrade your existing blog – you can use my experience to jump-start your blog journey.

5 Steps to Starting a Food Blog

First of all, what is a blog and why would you want to start one?

In simple terms, a blog is a type of website with posts (articles or recipes) displayed in reverse chronological order. In other words, the most recent posts are at the top.

There are many reasons to start a blog. You may want to share your story, connect with other people, establish yourself as an authority in your field, or make money while working from own.

I started this blog — greenandketo.com — to share delicious recipes with people interested in living a healthy lifestyle. And now, what started out as a hobby has become my full-time income.

Here is brief rundown of the steps you’ll take to start your blog:

  1. Choose a topic
  2. Choose a platform
  3. Design your blog
  4. Write great content
  5. Build a community

And then, after you have the technical steps completed, you might want to learn more about these blogging topics:

  1. Improve food photography
  2. Grow an email list
  3. Learn even more about blogging

Alright, let’s get started!

Step 1: Choose a Topic and Register a Domain Name

If you’re reading this post, you might have a general idea of what you want to blog about. Maybe you already have a focused niche and a name — that’s great!

Choose a topic.

When you start your own blog, you have the flexibility to write about any topic you choose.  I recommend choosing a niche topic that:

  • is something you enjoy and are excited about.
  • is broad enough that you can come up with plenty of blog post ideas.
  • is narrow enough that you can establish yourself as a go-to expert.

If your topic is too broad, it will be hard to stand out.  If your topic is too narrow, it will be hard to find a lot of readers.

Register a domain name.

The next thing you’ll want to do is pick a domain name for your blog — otherwise known as your URL.

Your domain name is your web address. For example, greenandketo.com is my domain name.

It’s best to think of a domain name that gives your readers an idea of what your blog is about.  Good domain names are:

  • Easy to spell and pronounce
  • Descriptive
  • Memorable
  • Not too long

Don’t choose a domain with intentional spelling mistakes.  A domain name ending in “.com” is best. And don’t use hyphens if possible.

Tip: Put some thought into choosing a domain name. A domain is essentially your brand name, and it’s not easy to change once you’ve become an established blogger.

Once you’ve thought of some potential domain names, head to Bluehost to see if your domain name is available.  Or, use the search box below.

You’ll also want to make sure that all of the corresponding social media handles are available. At the bare minimum, make sure that you claim a matching Instagram handle.

Bonus tip: If you also register for hosting from Bluehost (see step #2 below), you can get your domain for free.

Step 2: Choose a Platform and a Hosting Company

The next step is the choose your blogging platform and your hosting company.

A blogging platform — like WordPress or Blogger — is software that manages your content and helps you publish posts.  A hosting company — like Bluehost — makes your content accessible online.

The best combination (that I’ve used and paid for) is a WordPress blog hosted by a hosting company like Bluehost.

You may be wondering, can you blog with a free service like Blogger?  And the short answer is sure, you could.  But free services are never going to be as flexible or powerful as your own WordPress blog.

In fact, the only setup I recommend is a WordPress blog hosted by a company like Bluehost. In my experience, it is the absolute best option for beginners. It is incredibly affordable (less than $10/month) and the support is outstanding. They will help get WordPress installed on your domain and you’ll be ready to go!

You’ll also get a discount if you use the links below (and I’ll get a commission because they are my referral links). It’s simple to set up and there’s a money-back guarantee.

Click here to go to Bluehost and hit the green “Get Started” button.

First, head to Bluehost.com and click the green “Get Started” button.

Next, choose a plan by clicking a green “Select” button.

Either the Plus plan or the Choice Plus plan is okay.  But, I recommend the Choice Plus plan because it’s got more unlimited features and includes free Domain Privacy. Domain privacy is important because it keeps your personal contact information hidden from the public.

Reminder from above – if you purchase a Bluehost hosting plan, then you get your first domain for free.

If you haven’t registered a domain name yet, enter your desired domain name in the “new domain” box.

If you have already registered a domain name that you’d like to use for this new site, enter it in the “I have a domain name” box.

And, if you’re not sure about your domain name just yet, click the “Choose Later” link at the bottom of the page.

On the next page, you’ll enter your account information and select your package plan.  Tip: The discount pricing they offer to new customers applies to the first payment only.  If you choose the 36-month plan, you can keep the introductory pricing for 3 years.  So, I recommend choosing the longest plan that your budget allows.

You can skip the package extras if you want, though I recommend purchasing Domain Privacy. (If you chose the Choice Plus plan on the previous screen, Domain Privacy will be included for free.)

Complete the purchase, set a password, and log in to your Bluehost account.

Congratulations, you are the proud owner of your own website!

Bluehost will automatically install and set up WordPress for you. If you have followed the above guide and purchased hosting and a free domain name from Bluehost, it will start installing WordPress for you automatically.

Installing WordPress Manually on Bluehost

Now, if for some reason you deleted your existing WordPress installation or want to install WordPress on a new domain (Addon domain), you can follow these steps. To install WordPress, first make sure you are logged in to your Bluehost Hosting account. Then,

  • Open the My Sites tab from the side menu on the left.
  • Click on the Create Site button.
  • Enter the Site Name and Site Tagline. Click Next.
  • Select the domain you wish to install to from the drop-down list.
  • Choose the directory this should be installed to, and click Next.

Step 3: Design your WordPress Blog with Themes and Plugins

Woohoo! At this point, you officially have your own food blog! Check your email for your WordPress login information, if you don’t already have it.

When you log in to your WordPress site, the first thing you will see is your Dashboard.  This is the admin side of your WordPress blog.  From here, you’ll write and publish your blog posts, add photos, and manage comments.

Configure Your WordPress Settings

Before publishing anything on your blog, I highly recommend making some small changes to your WordPress settings.

  1. Change your site title and tagline to reflect your blog name. (in Settings –> General)
  2. Change your permalinks.  Most people choose to remove the date from their permalinks. (in Settings –> Permalinks)
  3. Remove the demo content.  There might be some pre-installed plugins that you don’t want.  There is also a “Sample Page” and a “Hello World” post that you will want to delete.

Install Important WordPress Plugins

There are a few plugins that I would recommend installing right away. These are the WordPress plugins I’ve used and loved.

  • Yoast – A plugin to help with SEO
  • Akismet – Protects your blog from spam and filters spam comments.
  • A recipe card – A recipe card plugin helps to format and display custom recipe cards.  It also helps sites like Google and Pinterest better understand your recipes.  There are two recipes cards I recommend: Tasty Recipes or Create by Mediavine
  • A Pinterest plugin, like Tasty Pins that will optimize your images for both Pinterest and SEO
  • reSmush.it – Food blogs have a lot of photos, and a lot of large photos in your post can make your blog load slowly.  To help, use a plugin like reSmush.it that optimizes images automatically and make your website load faster.

To install plugins from your WordPress Dashboard, go to Plugins –> Add New. Enter the name of a plugin in the search bar in the top right.

Find the plugin in the search results and click “Install Now.” Once it’s installed, click Activate. Once it’s activated, you can configure a plugin’s settings if needed.

Install a WordPress Theme

Now that you have your plugins set up, you may want to change your blog’s design. In WordPress, you can change the design by installing a theme.

Think of it this way:  If WordPress is the engine of a car, the theme is the coat of paint.

If you want a beautiful theme that works right out of the box, I recommend purchasing a premium theme like the Genesis theme.  Premium themes are usually better maintained and offer customer support.  (Like anything else, you get what you pay for!)

The Genesis Framework by StudioPress.com is an incredibly popular theme among food bloggers.  StudioPress offers “child themes” that are designed to be used by food blogs in particular.  Some of these child themes include

If you do decide to go with the Genesis Framework, don’t miss this  Genesis Guide for Absolute Beginners.

If a premium theme isn’t in your budget right now, don’t worry.  There are so! many! free WordPress themes to choose from.

If you want a free theme, I recommend GeneratePress.  GeneratePress comes with a lot of customization options.  Later on, you can upgrade to the premium version to access even more customization options and add-ons.

Step 4: Create Great Content for Your Blog.

Now to get down to the fun part: writing posts and recipes for your blog!

Your WordPress blog is made up of two types of pages: Posts and Pages.

Posts are what we usually think about when we talk about blogging.  These are the individual articles or recipes that you publish frequently — like once or twice a week.

Pages, on the other hand, contain more static or permanent information.  I recommend setting up a few pages to start, including:

  • About page
  • Contact page
  • Privacy Policy page

How to Write a Great Recipe Post

Writing a great recipe blog post starts with a great recipe.  But there is more to it than that, of course.

A post on your food blog will likely have several paragraphs of written content to describe and explain the recipe.  And you’ll want to include a few drool-worthy photos to show your readers just how delicious the recipe will be.

Here are some ideas to include in your next food blog post:

  • the story behind the recipe
  • tips for how to make the recipe turn out just right
  • process photos
  • a description of how you did each specific step
  • photos of the finished dish
  • a description of the specific ingredients you recommend
  • a description of the flavors of the finished dish
  • a formatted recipe with measured ingredients and preparation instructions
  • links to related recipes

How to Improve Your Food Photography

The food photos in your recipe posts are so important to the success of your blog. And the best way to take great food photos is to take a lot of food photos — aka practice makes perfect!

While I’m not a professional food photographer, my food photos have improved with lots of practice, and a little help from photography and e-books.

My top tips for better food photos include:

  • Find great light — natural window light is great, but artificial studio lights are wonderful!
  • Use a tripod!
  • Edit your photos in Lightroom

If you’re looking for help improving your food photo game, here are my recommendations:

Tasty Food Photography – This book is packed with technical, lighting, and editing tips that will seriously up-level your food photos.

I’d also highly recommend editing your photos in a program like Adobe Lightroom.

How Often to Post on Your Food Blog

When you start your own food blog, your posting schedule is entirely up to you. It will depend on the amount of time you have to devote to your blog.

Don’t stress about posting every day. Find a schedule that feels manageable— like once or twice a week — and stay as consistent as you can.

In the end, it’s better to produce quality content that you are excited to share with your readers.

Step 5: Build Traffic and a Community of Readers

The number one thing you can do to attract a community of loyal readers is to publish excellent quality content on a consistent basis.

Great content gets shared on social media.  Great content gets ranked by Google.  Great content saved on Pinterest.

Using Social Media to Promote Your Blog

That said, you can also use social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest to promote your blog content.

You can use these channels to connect with your followers and readers, as well as other food bloggers and brands.

Like I mentioned above, one of the first things you should do after securing your domain name is to set up matching accounts on the major social media networks. At the very least, I would sign up for Pinterest, Instagram, a Facebook business page, and Twitter.

If I had to pick one to focus on, it would be promotion through Pinterest. Pinterest is hands down my favorite way to reach new readers. It’s a visual search engine where people go to discover new recipes and ideas.

Instagram can be a great way to promote your food blog as well. Instagram is extremely visual, so eye-catching photos will go far to help you to gain an audience there.

Facebook used to be a great resource for getting traffic. With their algorithm changes over the past year, it’s getting harder and harder to reach your potential readers — but it’s still worth it to create a business page at the very least.

Scheduling Social Media Posts

With all of the different platforms, managing the social media for your blog can be overwhelming.  That’s why I love to use a social media scheduler to make it as easy as possible.

Tailwind is the best tool I’ve found for scheduling my Pinterest pins and Instagram posts. It helps you find your readers by automatically optimizing your Pinterest and Instagram schedules based on when your audience is most engaged. And what’s more, Tailwind offers analytics and insights so you can see what’s working and what’s not.  (Seriously, if you can only afford one more service, get this one!)

Comments on keto cookie recipes


All keto cookie recipes use a sweetener.In some cases, a specific quantity and type is indicated, in other recipes there is no detailed information. If the type and quantity are not specified, then the sweetener does not play a major role. That is, you can use any. And depending on what kind of sweetener you add, you may need a different amount.

As a rule, the packaging is written about the level of sweetness compared to sugar. Follow the manufacturer’s directions and add as much as you would add sugar.

Erythritol for keto biscuits

When erythritol (erythritol) is indicated in keto cookie recipes, it can be replaced with another powdered sweetener (preferably NOT stevia, otherwise you will get hard cookies). But keep in mind that nutritional and energy values ​​may change.

Erythritol is preferred because it is very sweet and slightly menthol with no digestible carbohydrates. According to various sources, erythritol contains 0-20 calories per hundred grams.So it is the perfect sweetener for keto cookie recipes.


The same goes for vanillin. Most keto cookie recipes don’t specify the exact amount. It must be added to taste. In addition, vanillin comes in a variety of flavors and aromas. Vanillin “Intensive” can replace a couple of bags of “regular” vanillin. So you should always read the directions on the packaging.

Remember that it is easy to go over, and even ruin the dough with it.On packages with vanilla, as in the case of sweeteners, they write how much to add. For vanillin, indicate the amount per 1 kg of dough.


Gelatin can be found among the ingredients in some keto cookie recipes. It is used to make dough to make it more elastic. Generally, gelatin is not a required ingredient. Keto cookies will work without it. But for the best results and a really tasty treat with good texture, gelatin is still worth adding.Do not forget to “dissolve” it, if it is required by the recommendations on the packaging, before using.

Substitutions are allowed in keto cookie recipes


Dry cream in keto cookie recipes can be substituted for milk powder. This will not greatly affect the structure and taste. Substitution will reduce the calorie content of the treat. But keep in mind that this will also change the ratio of nutrients, there will be much less fat, and a little more carbohydrates.

But you do not need to replace liquid cream with milk.

In recipes for keto cookies that require whipping cream, be sure to use a 30% fat content, otherwise they will not whip. You can use a heavier cream (do not forget about the calorie content that increases along with this).

Keto chocolate

Use low-carb chocolate. Read the ingredients carefully to avoid hidden carbohydrates. Avoid corn syrup and other possible blood sugar-increasing ingredients.Choose dark chocolate (97-99%) whenever possible. Or you can cook according to the recipe on the website (the link is duplicated below).

You can also buy sugar-free chocolate drops in health food stores. These are small droplet-shaped pieces of chocolate. They are specially designed for making desserts. But you also need to read the composition and nutritional value.


The main ingredient in most keto cookie recipes is almond flour.The product is simply irreplaceable on a diet! Especially for those with a sweet tooth. In some keto cookie recipes, almond flour is diluted with coconut flour. But with her, not everything is so simple.

Coconut flour is certainly better than wheat or rye flour, but it is usually high in carbohydrates (although most of it is dietary fiber). Therefore, do not get carried away. If you are on a strict version of keto, but still allow yourself keto sweets, it is better to cook them exclusively with almond flour, replacing it with coconut flour in equal proportions.

Why bother with coconut flour in keto cookie recipes?

Try cooking with and without her to see the difference. You will notice that by using coconut flour in dessert recipes, treats become more like the usual “wheat” ones.

You may be lucky to find low-carb coconut flour. It exists, but it is difficult to find it. And, again, don’t forget to read the composition.

In preparation keto biscuits

There are a couple of things that you probably already know about if you have some experience in cooking.First of all, ALWAYS whisk the whites in a clean bowl with clean kitchen utensils. They should be free of droplets of liquid and other ingredients.

For a nicer or more interesting shape, some keto cookie recipes use a cooking syringe. It is very convenient. It is now sold with a variety of attachments and in all sorts of variations. But if such a kitchen tool is not at hand, you can use a bag with a cut off corner.

Eat cookies and lose weight, this is happiness!

90,000 30 Amazing Keto Desserts – Recipes

Did you find this post helpful, inspiring? Save THIS PIN to his blog board to Pinterest , 😉

A delightful collection of delicious, rich and delicious keto desserts. There is no need to deprive yourself! Go on and enjoy.

For those embarking on a keto diet, the main concern is the need to give up our favorite desserts. We humans have a sweet tooth, and this is not our fault, it was determined by evolution!

However, sugar is not a good option, and one of the goals of the keto diet is to get rid of sugar.It’s a great goal, but for many of us, it’s also one of the hardest parts of getting started on a keto diet.

No need to deprive yourself of

When I started my low-carb diet in 2013, I avoided desserts for several months. My goal was to stop eating foods that taste sweet. I was successful, but eventually I started to lose the sweetness.

That’s when I discovered that you can eat desserts on a keto diet. Using ingredients like almond flour, coconut flour, and stevia (or other sweeteners), amazing treats can be made.

But don’t go overboard

In fact, these desserts are so amazing that it is easy to fall into the trap of eating a lot of them, giving up the basics: meat, chicken and seafood; vegetables and fruits low in sugar; whole milk, fats and nuts

I think that as long as we are aware of this problem and enjoy sweets from time to time, rather than every day, it is very important to have good keto choices that will help us avoid feeling impoverished.

Ingredients commonly used in keto desserts

Most low-carb desserts replace wheat flour with a more nutritious flour, usually almond flour or coconut flour, or a combination of both.

They also replace granular white sugar with low carb granular sweetener.

Almond flour

Almond flour is surprisingly easy to bake. Produces fluffy baked goods with delicate crumb. My only problem with this flour is that baked goods tend to be high in calories.

Coconut flour

Coconut flour is not easy to work with. It is highly absorbent, so you should add plenty of eggs and enough liquid to any mixture that contains it.

However, once you get the proportions right, baked goods made with coconut flour will be light and fluffy (these coconut flour muffins are a good example) and they are also very low in calories. Especially when compared to baked almond flour products, which tend to be high in calories.

Keto sweeteners

My personal choice is to use stevia almost exclusively, as I cannot work with sugar alcohols. I think stevia is safe.But for most of my recipes, you can substitute granular sweetener for stevia.

Adapting a traditional cake recipe to these special ingredients is not always easy. But once you get the proportions right, I think low-carb desserts can be as good as traditional ones.

My favorite keto desserts

So, here are my 30 favorite low-carb desserts. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Keto syrniki

It is no coincidence that I started this collection with cheesecakes.They are probably my favorite kind of dessert (with a chocolate second!).

Good news: Keto cheesecakes are VERY easy to make. You don’t need to replace flour; all you need to replace is a sweetener. In my case, it’s a little more complicated because I love using stevia.

But it’s still quite doable, and the results are just as good, as tasty and creamy as traditional cheesecakes.

1. Keto cheesecake

This cake is amazing. It tastes the same as regular cheesecake.I use low fat ingredients, but you can use fatty ones if you like.

Keto Cheesecake – Detailed step-by-step instructions and many helpful tips for making a delicious, smooth and creamy sugar-free keto cheesecake sweetened with stevia. Look at this recipe

2. Cheese pie with ricotta

Ricotta cheesecake is different from regular cheesecake because it tends to be light and fluffy. Therefore, it is not as creamy, but has a lighter texture.I love both of them!

Cheesecake with ricotta cheese without cheese This cheesecake with ricotta cheese has a delicate airy texture and a pleasant lemon-vanilla flavor. It’s not as heavy as cream cheese cheesecake. Look at this recipe

3. Mini cheesecakes

These mini cheesecakes are so adorable and easy to make. You can complement them with anything you want: I am in favor of very tasty blueberry topping.

Keto Mini Cheesecakes Creamy and tender, these keto cheesecakes are crust-free and gluten-free.Most importantly, they are delicious! Look at this recipe

4. Mini cheesecakes with chocolate

This is amazing. Just try them and you will see. They combine the best of both worlds: the richness of cheesecake with a deep chocolate flavor. And they are very easy to make!

Chocolate Mini Cheesecakes Delicious chocolate mini cheesecakes are incredibly creamy and chocolatey. Made with just a few simple ingredients, they are absolutely flawless! Look at this recipe

Dessert for breakfast!

I don’t think any of us will be fooled into thinking donuts for breakfast are a good idea.Yes, eggs and berries are probably the best option!

Getting Started on a Keto Diet: Recipes for 3 Days – Blog

Nia Rennix, Certified Nutritionist (CCN)

The keto diet is one of the most affordable ways to lose weight quickly and safely.With this diet, you can eat delicious meals, healthy fats, vegetables – everything to help you burn excess fat by starting ketosis! It sounds exciting? To understand how the keto diet works, you need to know about the macronutrients that feed our body.

There are three main categories of nutrients: carbohydrates, proteins and fats. These are the three main elements of our diet, from which the body receives energy. The average meal consists of 60% carbohydrates, 20% protein and 20% fat.

A ketogenic diet means reducing your carbohydrate intake and increasing your intake of protein and fat.With a keto diet, the composition of an average meal is as follows: 65% fat, 30% protein, and 5% carbohydrates. When the body gets less than 20 grams of carbohydrates per day, it triggers ketosis, a metabolic process in which ketone bodies are produced by burning fat to provide energy for the body to function. Thus, with careful diet planning and consistently extremely low carbohydrate intake, you can expect to lose weight quickly.

Below we offer you a keto menu for a full 3 days

90,000 Almond Bread – Almond flour keto bread recipe with photo step by step

I have been planning to make such a low-carbohydrate bread for a long time, but all hands did not get it.And also the price of almond flour bites very hard))) But I came across it yesterday at a very attractive price and could not resist – I took it. My culinary soul is always demanding experimentation!)

What can I say? This is delicious! Its advantage even over ordinary gluten-free bread is that there is no flour here, because nut flour is not flour at all 🙂 By the way, it is easy to cook it at home.

To do this, soak the almonds in very hot water for 10 minutes and remove the peel, after hot water it is easy.Then leave overnight at room temperature or dry at 90 degrees in the oven for about an hour, they should not brown. Next, you cool the nuts COMPLETELY. Otherwise, when grinding, you will receive urbech instead of flour))

Use short pulses to grind in portions in a blender or coffee grinder. Short, again, so as not to get urbech, because the oil will begin to stand out from the hot knife. Grind as finely as possible. But it is better to sift through a not very fine sieve, large pieces back into a blender.Everything is ready 🙂


  • almond flour – 120 gr.;
  • flaxseed flour (better white, I had a dark one) – 80 gr.;
  • psyllium (flour) is better with ayherb – 30 gr.;
  • 3 egg whites;
  • apple cider vinegar – 30 ml.;
  • salt – to taste;
  • baking powder – 2 tsp;
  • hot boiled water – 250 ml.


Preparing is simply elementary, there is even nothing to paint.Preheat the oven in advance to 180 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, mix thoroughly.

Add proteins and vinegar.

Save the yolks for some cookies. If you still have almond flour left, here’s a recipe for delicious almond cookies!)

And only last, add water and knead the dough. It should remain sticky.

With wet hands, shape the buns into the desired shape and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment.Large ones will turn out to be about 5 pieces, smaller – 8.

Bake for about 40-50 minutes, cool and you can eat;)

Bon appetit!
