Grilled pork chops keto
It’s easy to think that pork is just fat. But contrary to popular belief, as all types of meat, pork is totally keto. It’s composed of great quantity of protein, some fat and 0 carbohydrates.
And since the keto diet stipulates a low carbohydrate intake, pork chops is a perfect addition to the keto plan diet. So it’s okay to eat fatty meals like pork when you’re on keto.

I marinate the pork chops with white pepper and salt. That’s how I stated in this recipe. But some people marinate them with garlic and soy sauces. So, it’s up to you. But if you decide to marinate with these or other sauces, youmay increase the carb intake.
