Easy one pot meals under 30 minutes are a staple in my house. To make this simple low-carb dinner you'll only need four common ingredients, plus seasonings and cooking oil.

This recipe uses ground pork but any ground meat — beef, chicken, turkey or lamb — will work just as well. I added some zucchini (courgette) but you could swap it with eggplant (aubergine) or even some chopped cauliflower or broccoli, fresh or frozen will work just fine.

I wanted to keep this recipe low FODMAP so I omitted any onion or garlic but feel free to add some onion or garlic powder for extra flavour.

Custom Diet Plans Coming Soon!

This keto dinner recipe (and many more to come) will be the perfect addition to our new diet plan builder. It's easy, simple with just a few ingredients and minimum preparation. Plus it's all cooked in one pot!

As you may know from our last major app update announcement we've been working on a custom diet plan builder. We wanted to make sure it works for everyone, no matter what their macros and allergy limitations are so it took a little longer than we expected but we are getting very close to releasing this huge update!

It was the number one request in the polls I run in our group and I can't wait so see what you think of it. Once it's available on iOS and Android, every subscriber will be able to build a custom diet plan with no extra payment. That's right, it will become part of the premium features!

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
