Keto/ Paleo Diet: Chicken Kheema recipe
Keto and Paleo are like siblings, pretty alike yet so different. Lol… what a start… hahaha. But frankly speaking these are two ways of eating to lose weight real quick. This is also a fact that both these diets are more effective in giving results to non vegetarian food eaters. As we all know that meat and eggs have the lowest amount of carbohydrates and highest amount of proteins. That is what is needed to lose weight on a Keto or Paleo diet along with fat. We keep sharing recipes to make things easy for dieters and here we are back with another Low Carb recipe. Low carb recipes are the basis of Keto as well as Paleo diet. This time it is Chicken Kheema. Kheema/Keema is one such dish which can be prepared in various ways.
