Today we’re talking about the best keto friendly foods that you should add to your grocery list right now! Eat these as much as you want while on the keto diet.
So here’s a list of keto-friendly foods that you’ll look forward to every day, without having to sacrifice taste or portions.
Each week when you fill out your shopping list and stock up at the store, be sure to include these items.
Eggs. If you normally buy one dozen eggs per week for a family of 4, you’ll want to start buying 2 dozen, maybe even three. Eggs, provided you enjoy them, will be a happy addition to your breakfast fare each day.
No more dieting rules like “no more than 2 eggs per day.” Eggs are extremely healthy for the body and you can eat them without reserve on the ketogenic diet.
To up the nutrition factor even more, consider buying your eggs from a local farm, where the chickens are free to roam about, eating grass and bugs and soaking up healthy, life-giving sunshine.
Farm eggs contain far more good nutrition than feed-lot eggs that you buy in the grocery store.
The key here is looking for the term “pasture raised” eggs. We buy ours in our local health food store.
Who doesn’t love cheese? You’ll get your fill and then some on this diet where, ironically, the more fat you consume, the more weight you’ll seem to lose.
What are your favorite types of cheese? American cheese may be delicious, though it ranks low for nutritional value.
Nevertheless, you can eat American cheese while going keto. You’ll also want to explore some healthier cheese options, such as aged cheeses and even raw cheese made from unpasteurized milk.
Brie is an especially high-fat cheese option that lends appeal to the keto way of eating. Picture yourself popping open your handy food pouch, to find a wheel of brie, a couple of hard boiled eggs and some cucumbers.
Really not a bad way to start the day even if it isn’t traditional breakfast food as you may be used to eating.
I like to buy raw cheese which again, you can often find in local health food stores.
Salty, cured meats such as bacon, sausage and pork roll get two thumbs up for being a breakfast, lunch or dinner go-to on the ketogenic diet.
Just remember that these things take a few minutes of extra time to prepare in the morning. You can either cook them ahead of time and have the fridge stocked, so you can heat them quickly and pop them in a container on your way out.
Or, if your partner has some extra time in the morning, maybe you can arrange for them to cook you some quick breakfast meats that you can grab and go quickly.
Nuts and seeds
With healthy fats aplenty, nuts and seeds are a filling and satisfying source of nutrition that you can enjoy every day and with any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner, while on the ketogenic diet.
Planning a meat and veggie stir-fry? Toss in some toasted sesame seeds for a boost of good fats. Making a green salad?
Add salted sunflower seeds for a tasty way to add fat fast. A can of mixed nuts in your car will go a long way toward keeping hunger pangs at bay when you’re out and about at work or at play.
