I think my favorite part of the ketogenic lifestyle is the variety of foods you can eat that are all so full of flavor I never feel like I am depriving myself of anything.
While some people look at keto and see a list of things they can not have, I have enjoyed putting all sorts of things together to create delicious meals that I CAN have! I eat a ton of low carb veggies every single day. One that has become a favorite – Blue Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Peppers.

It is kind of a joke around the Keto Community that bacon is life – but let’s be honest… bacon does make everything better. It has become quite a staple around here – but no one in my family is complaining.
The flavors of fresh bacon and creamy blue cheese are hard to beat – but mixed together… man it just doesn’t get any better.
Bell peppers make the perfect base for this delicious dish which is perfect for a grab and go lunch or a keto friendly party dish that will delight everyone… even if they are not keto.
The sweetness of the peppers mixed with the savoriness of the bacon and blue cheese will make this a crowd favorite.
These keto stuffed peppers are easy to put together and are very inexpensive so you can feed a crowd easily and economically – which is a very good thing… because I will warn you… it is very hard to stop eating these once you start!
I plugged this recipe into my favorite Keto Calculator App – Carb Manager – and it came up with the following macros:
