Have you been interested in trying “Keto” for some time?

It can be overwhelming when shopping for certain foods to fit within a new diet such as the Ketogenic diet. That’s why we have put together an easy to review shopping guide for you to use next time you are in your local supermarket!

Please keep in mind that you should always consult with a medical professional prior to starting any new diet. 

First things first: stick to the perimeter of the grocery market

Almost everything that you need will be on the outer ends of the store, stay away from the middle isles loaded with processed foods. 

Load up on your veggies! Stick to “above ground” veggies because root vegetables tend to be higher in carbohydrates! 

A few keto friendly veggies include: asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, lettuce, spinach, & zucchini

On to the proteins! Chicken thigh, beef, pork, salmon, ground turkey, & eggs are all great options!

All the good fats!
Remember, 60-80% of your calories should be coming from healthy fats! 
Some good options include: plain full fat greek yogurt, cottage cheese, almonds, cashews, avocado, olive oil, avocado oil, & chia seeds. 

Helpful hints: 

1. A great way to get your fats in is to make whole fat yogurt based dips for your vegetables! Also, add your olive &/or avocado oil on top of your meals!

2. Be sure to select a yogurt that does not have a ton of added sugar. (You will be surprised at how many have added sugars in them)

Rather skip grocery shopping & just have some keto options delivered right to your doorstep? 

With our new Keto package, you can select your desired daily caloric goals along with 3, 5, or 7 day options!

Then, you can view the meals & swap or remove them to fit your dietary preferences!

Keto friendly options

Keto takes a very specific approach to weight loss. It does this by burning dietary fat instead of glucose for energy. When you eat a low carb diet that is rich in fats, your body is able to use this fat as energy.

But what can you eat? What should you eat? How much of it should you eat? The questions go on & on.

While everyone’s body & caloric intake needs are different, you should aim to get roughly ~60-80% of your calories from Fat, 15-30% of your calories from Protein, & 5-10% of your calories from Carbohydrates.
