Pantry Staples For a Keto and Low Carb Lifestyle
If you are starting a Keto lifestyle, go you! I limit my sugar and try to eat healthy carbs, and Deal Team Manager Stacy and her fam eat 100% low carb and keto and have for years! We have found many great benefits from it. It will take work and a great mindset, but we’re here to help you get started.
Here are several keto staples that you’ll need to succeed. You can do it!
7 Keto Pantry Staples:
1. Leafy greens
Your leafy greens will be your new best friend. For example, kale, spinach, collared greens, swiss chard, arugula, watercress. You could make so many delicious salads with these.
2. Other Vegetables
Vegetables are also great source for a keto diet. You’ll want veggies like broccoli, bell peppers, avocado (technically a fruit), cucumbers, olives, and mushrooms just to name a few. You want to avoid starchy vegetables — so no potatoes of any kind! Tomatoes are allowed in moderate amounts – they are sugary and thus carb rich.
Cheese will be your other best friend on a keto diet. You can essentially get any cheese, such as brie, cottage cheese, feta, cheddar, or goat cheese. You can also enjoy these healthy and keto approved cheese crisp chips.
4. Nut Milks, Heavy Cream and Butter
Heavy Cream and real butter is another fab part of a keto diet. It is preferable to get nut milk, like unsweetened almond milk. Use full fat heavy cream and real butter. You’ll also enjoy this heavy cream powder for recipes like low-carb hot chocolate or keto chocolate whipped cream.
Since meat is a good source of protein, you’ll need meat. My personal favorite is chicken, but you can also get meats such as bacon, ham, beef, duck, pork or turkey. Also get that seafood and fish! Most meat is no to very low carb. Just watch that any meat you select does not have any added sugar (like honey ham is a no no). You might also like these pork rind crumbs that are perfect for making delicious keto recipes like Keto Bread and Keto Chicken Nuggets
Eggs are another great source of protein, so you’ll want plenty of eggs! Eat the eggs!
7. Healthy Oils and Fats
You also want healthy oils and fats! Ditch the canola and vegetable oils. Grab healthy avocado or coconut oil. Watch for sugar hiding in condiments, dressings, and sauces. AND remember sugar free does NOT mean that it is healthy or low carb — There are 100+ different ways that sugar can be listed on nutrition labels. If you want to sweeten a meal, use a natural sweetener such as Monk Fruit Zero Calorie Sweetener or Stevia Natural Sweetener.
