Shopping for Keto-Friendly foods
In order to get into keto properly we must significantly decrease our carbohydrate intake. Ideally we are aiming for a total of 20-30grams of Carbs per day Total. This automatically eliminates carb-heavy foods such as bread, pasta, pastries, rice and potatoes.
Increase Healthy Fats
Most of the time we don’t include enough healthy fats
What to Buy at the Grocery Store
Meat & Fish
Focus on purchasing fattier cuts of meat such as ribeye instead of striploin and fish rich in omega 3’s such as mackerel, herring or salmon. If possible, purchase grass-fed beef and veggie-fed/free-run chicken. These have been shown to have higher ratios of nutrients and fat ratios compared to their grain-fed counterparts.
Dairy [low-carb and high fat]
‘Low-Fat’ Dairy can actually be very high in Carbs. Whereas Full-Fat is very low. Opt for Full Fat
Eggs are the perfect Keto Food! Try to get free-run eggs, ideally the chickens would have been veggie-fed.
All Vegetables are great for Keto! However some may fit into your daily carb limit easier than others. We call these low-carb vegetables. Examples of great low-carb options are Leafy Greens, Cauliflower,
Fruits are a little tricker, a lot of fruit are high carb.
Nuts & Seeds [low-carb]
Most popular options include; pecans, macadamia nuts, walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, almond butter, pumpkin seed butter etc.
Fats & Oils
Fats and Oils are an important part of the Keto Diet.
When choosing snack options we want to stick to those that are low-carb and/or high fat. Some examples include Guacamole, Cheese & Nuts, Pickles, Dark Chocolate, Jerky etc.
