15 Fiery Keto Recipes That Require a Tall Glass of Water as a Side

There is no denying there has been a buzz surrounding the keto diet lately, as more people are turning to it to help them shed pounds and live a healthier lifestyle. A diet that is low in carbs, the keto diet relies on ketones produced by the liver for energy and sends your body into ketosis.

While not a diet recommended for long-term health (and keto brings a slew of side effects with it!), keto may, however, change your perception about food and make you realize what foods your body reacts positively to and which ones your body doesn't like.

While the momentum around the diet is not slowing down, it doesn't mean those on the diet can't enjoy life a bit. Check out some of these spicy keto recipes that will definitely bring the heat.
