Keto-Friendly Foods and Snacks

The Keto diet is still one of the most popular diets. But, like any diet, planning is key. Finding Keto-friendly foods and Keto friendly snacks on store shelves are much more readily available than ever before. Many people think that Keto means simply eating meats and fatty foods but this is certainly not true. Understanding the basics of Keto is important and necessary if you are thinking about starting this diet.

The Keto diet requires you to eat less than 50 grams of carbs per day. However, if you are trying to lose weight, you should keep under 20 grams of carbs per day. Carb counting is the most important factor in the Keto diet and finding the right Keto-friendly foods and snacks helps greatly in the meal preparation and daily carb intake.

Keto-Friendly Foods and Snacks 

Keto-Friendly Pancakes 

Berch Benders Keto Pancakes have only 5 grams net carbs! Add some heavy whipping cream or sugar-free syrup and some blueberries. You’ll feel full and energized with the antioxidants from the blueberries. The deliciously perfect way to start the day!

Keto-Friendly Salads

Let’s face it, salad day after day can get boring. Mix it up and try this Avocado, Bacon, & Goat Cheese Salad (only 6 grams of net carbs per serving). There are so many different kinds of Keto friendly salad recipes, but remember, although salad is healthy, the carbs still add up quickly! Salad dressing can make up most of the carbs too… so be proactive in reading the labels! 

Keto-Friendly Casseroles

Casseroles can be a great dish to prepare ahead of time and let’s be honest, they’re also good go-to comfort food. If you enjoy loaded mash potatoes, then you will enjoy this Easy Cheesy Loaded Cauliflower Casserole (with only 4 grams net carbs per serving). Oh so good!

Keto-Friendly Skillet Meals

You won’t feel like you’re missing out when you’re eating a meal that’s as good (or better) than dining out. It also helps when it’s a simple, easy to make Keto friendly recipe. Keto-friendly skillet meals will keep you on track with your goals. Try this Creamy Chicken Fajita Skillet recipe (with less than 6 grams of net carbs) – you won’t regret it!

Keto-Friendly Desserts

Unless you’re entertaining or have controlled willpower to say “no”, we never suggest having more than one serving of dessert accessible. After all, why tempt yourself?  Consider a Keto friendly dessert in a mug that can rid you of that sweet tooth craving! Easy homemade Keto ice-cream is another simple, yet delicious Keto friendly dessert. 

Keto-Friendly Snacks

Most nutritionists and active Keto “Gurus” will tell you that snacking while on Keto is not ideal. Many will vouch for intermittent fasting for faster weight loss and it’s even said to reverse diabetes (we’re not doctors – ask your doctor about that statement).  However, there are some good Keto friendly snack bars on the market and grabbing a cheese stick or a few nuts are still considered Keto friendly. 

Keto-Friendly Protein Shakes

Protein shakes have been used as meal replacements in many diets. A protein shake can be a great on-the-go meal and can also be a great way to replenish nutrients after a workout. Adding almond or coconut milk to the shake can add protein intake as well as makes it less powdery tasting. Adding a scoop of collagen supplement also makes the shake a little thicker and will control your appetite for longer. 

Keto-Friendly Supplements 

Food is always the best way to feed your body with the nutrients it needs but we also know that this is not always possible. Taking a Keto-friendly multivitamin is a good way to ensure your body is getting what it needs each day. Make sure that the multivitamin is not filled with sugar (especially if it is in a gummy form). 

Getting your body in a state of Ketosis is not as easy as it appears and does not leave you feeling great either. Many people suffer from flu-like symptoms and complain of restless sleep. However, once your body is burning the fat for fuel, you’ll feel more energized and alert. Getting started, like any diet, is often the hardest part of the journey.
