Keto Soups That’ll Fill You Up (with Everything But Carbs)
If you’re on the keto diet, you’re used to cutting carbs and sugars. But there’s no reason to sacrifice flavor. That’s especially true when it comes to keto soups. There are so many ways to enjoy a comforting bowl of soup while staying in ketosis—and loading up on healthy fats and protein.
Here, seven keto soups so creamy and rich, you won’t miss that side of bread one bit.
Keto Jalapeño Popper Soup
If you’re on the keto diet and love a good spicy kick, this jalapeño popper soup is for you. It has only 4 grams of net carbs, but it’s high in protein and good fats. A tip? Add xanthan gum or guar gum if you want a thicker consistency, or leave it out for more of a broth-based soup.
