Machaca & the Keto Diet

Machaca, and all of our jerky products, are an excellent addition to the Ketogenic diet. For those unfamiliar with this popular food regimen, the Ketogenic diet, or Keto for short, features a daily macronutrient intake high in fat, moderate in protein, and extremely low in carbohydrates. Practitioners of the Ketogenic diet posit that when on the Ketogenic diet, a person’s body goes into ketosis and switches burning fat for fuel rather than carbohydrates.

The challenge for Keto followers is finding foods and recipes that can fit into this specific diet. The breakfast occasion especially can be challenging as carbohydrates reign supreme in traditional breakfast dishes. But no longer! The Mexican Breakfast Scramble is the right mix for the Keto diet, high protein/fat, low in carbs, and packed with flavor. An excellent option, fit for a Keto king!
