Did you know that National Keto Day is January 5, 2023? Because of this, right now really is the perfect time to consider going keto or adding more keto foods to your diet.
Whether you’re already keto, plan on going keto, or just want to eat better, here are ten great keto foods to include in your diet:
Both fish and shellfish are fantastic to have in your keto diet! Fish such as salmon are practically carb-free and contain many great nutrients such as B vitamins, omega-3 fats, potassium, and selenium.
Fresh meat and poultry such as beef, chicken, or turkey are amazing protein sources and contain no carbs! Additionally, these foods are full of B vitamins and several vital minerals.
Let’s look at the facts. One large egg contains less than a single gram of carbs and approximately six grams of protein. Thus, eggs are ideal for the keto diet! Be sure to eat the whole egg and not just egg whites as, most of an egg’s nutrients are found in the yolk.
A food that is both high in nutrients and delicious is plain Greek yogurt. It contains some carbs but is okay in moderation for the keto diet. A great benefit of this food is that it has been shown to promote feelings of fullness!
Are you looking for the perfect drink to wash down all your keto foods? Look no further. Unsweetened coffee and tea are refreshing, carb-free, and each contain caffeine. Caffeine increases your metabolism and can help boost your mood, alertness, and physical performance.
It’s always good to eat your greens! Green leafy vegetables have very few carbs and contain many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Additionally, the darker the green, the better the benefits! Greens like kale, collard greens, and spinach are all filled with iron and vitamin K.
Keto is a high-fat diet. As such, including higher-fat vegetables is a great idea! Two great options are avocados and olives. Plus, they have few carbs and contain a lot of fiber.
Berries are some of the few fruits that are acceptable on the keto diet due to their low carb content. And as a bonus, berries, such as raspberries and strawberries, have a lot of fiber and many antioxidants, which may reduce inflammation.
A sweet treat on a list of keto foods? We know, we know. But dark chocolate can be quite keto-friendly (just ensure it contains at least 70% cocoa solids)! This treat is an amazing source of antioxidants and contains flavanols, a substance shown to lower your risk of heart disease.
Now, what about all those snacks you like to have while bingeing your favorite show or going on an outdoor adventure? While going keto requires you to say goodbye to your favorite chips, crackers, and pretzels, B. Fine offers many delicious alternatives that are keto-friendly!
