The ultimate keto grocery list
To begin with, ensuring that you are vigilant and not loading calories in your cart but only quality. Don’t go all out and buy everything that is called keto but go slow and stick to some basic recipes till you are comfortable with the diet. The staple in any keto diet is butter, dark green veggies and some meat. When you fill yourselves with these you will never realize that you are dieting and you will be pleasantly surprised to lose weight.
There are several keto brands now available in all markets and grocery stores but before you begin to ensure that your selection includes only the keto brands reviewed and not anything that looks fancy.
Now here are the very basics that every individual on keto diet must have in the pantry.
Avocado, nuts, grass-fed butter, full-fat cheese, heavy whipping cream, avocado oil, olive oil, coconut oil
Bacon, chicken, turkey, salmon, tuna, sardines, eggs and beef
All green vegetables, cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, then you can add mushrooms, artichokes, carrots, zucchini, and butternut squash. Steer clear of the rice, pasta, bread, fried items, cereals, legumes and fruits, and dessert. Your carbohydrate content per day must not be more than 30 grams. As you can see your fiber content will come from the vegetables.
It might not be easy to shift to keto but once you get used to it you will love the transformation your body undergoes.
