Today I am going to be talking about going grocery shopping while on The Ketogenic
“Diet”. If you’re considering going keto, you’re likely looking to get lean quick and have mentally prepared yourself for cutting out almost all carbs from your diet. Although many healthy carbs can help uncover your abs, the key to killing the keto “Diet” Is eating foods that are high In fat, low In carbs, and contain moderate amounts of protein. That way, you allow your liver to produce ketone bodies, which the body uses for energy rather than Its usual primary source of energy—glucose, a carb. When you adopt a low-carb, high-fat “Diet”, the body switches to burning fat (which turn into ketone bodies In the liver) for fuel—ultimately slimming us down, reducing bloat, and boosting brain power.
Yesterday I did a post about keto snacks that you can bring on-the-go If you are Interested In reading It here Is the link On-The-Go-Keto-Snacks
Everything mentioned today I found at whole foods unless stated otherwise
Nutiva Organic Unflavored MCT Oil
Extracted from organic coconuts, this MCT oil Is packed with medium-chain triglycerides Including 7.3 grams of caprylic acid, 5 grams of capric acid, and 0.7 grams of lauric acid—which work together to boost brain power, fight Inflammation, stabilize blood sugar, and help your body produce ketones.
PER 1 TBSP: 130 calories, 14 g fat (14 g saturated fat, 0 g trans fat), 0 mg sodium, 0 g carbs, 0 g protein
Horizon Organic Mozzarella String Cheese
For a portable snack that will keep crabby cravings at bay on the go, toss these organic mozzarella sticks in your purse. Besides packing in 6 grams of satiating fats, one stick contains 20 percent of your daily value of bone-strengthening calcium and 8 grams of muscle-maintaining protein.
Perfect Keto Matcha MCT Oil Powder
Two superstar fat burners—MCT oil and matcha—combine in this keto-approved powder that’s bound to shoo away hunger and maintain your level of ketosis. For a delicious yet clean source of energy, mix one scoop of matcha-infused MCT oil powder with a glass of ice-cold water and sip before breakfast or in between meals.
Sir Kensington’s Organic Mayonnaise
Although it’s not ideal to consume bread on the keto diet, there are plenty of other foods you can deliciously pair mayo with—especially when the spread tastes as heavenly as Sir Kensington’s. Slather the creamy spread on grilled burgers, mix into a carb-free tuna salad, or try your hand at homemade deviled eggs.
Fried, boiled, baked, or poached, eggs in any form will become your best friend when you’re going keto. The affordable and versatile protein is a great source of ketone-spiking fats as well as essential fat-blasting nutrients such as choline and skin-clearing collagen.
Oloves, Lemon Rosemary
Toss these marinated olives on top of salads, mix into a tuna salad, blend into pesto, or snack on them on their own to increase your daily fat intake. This fatty fruit (yes, olives are a fruit!) is loaded with vitamin E—a vital antioxidant that’s essential for skin health—as well as oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that’s been shown to nix inflammation in the bud.
Fairlife Whole Ultra-Filtered Milk
Fairlife trumps other milk brands because of its superb filtration process, which renders a lactose-free milk that boasts 50 percent more protein, 30 percent more calcium, and 50 percent less sugar than your average jug. Whether you’re splashing your morning mug of joe with the stuff or drinking a warm glass before bed, this lower-carb milk is the perfect addition to your keto grocery list.
Kite Hill Chive Cream Cheese Style Spread
If you’re looking to cut down on cheese, the main source of saturated fat in our diets, then look no further than Kite Hill’s dairy-free spread that’s blended with savory chive. One serving is packed with 7 grams of healthy fats and just 2 grams of net carbs. And get this—it tastes just like the cream cheese at your go-to deli!
365 Everyday Value Broccoli Rabe
One cup contains zero net carbs and 2 grams of digestion-aiding fiber, deeming this leafy green a super-low-carb superfood you must add to your meals.
Broccoli rabe, or rapini, is full of anti-inflammatory nutrients such as vitamins A, C, and K as well as DNA-protective folate. Pairing this cruciferous veggie with a healthy dose of fats (such as olive oil or coconut oil) will not only progress your ketosis level but also help your body absorb the green’s fat-soluble vitamins.
MaraNatha Organic Raw Almond Butter
Slather this one-ingredient almond butter on celery sticks or spoon it into your mouth on its own for a creamy snack that’s bound to satiate. Choose this spread to reap raw almonds’ antioxidant benefits, as the raw nuts contain more skin-loving vitamin E than their roasted counterparts.
House Foods Tofu Shirataki, Spaghetti
If you miss twirling and slurping spaghetti, stock up on these tofu-based noodles that mimic your favorite carb. The best part? Unlike traditional pasta, which packs in upwards of 40 grams of carbs per 2-ounce serving, these noodles boast just 3 grams of carbs and 2 grams of fiber. Drizzle pesto or melt butter and cheese over the tofu noodles for a delectable high-fat, low-carb lunch. And for more foods that don’t overdo sugar and starches.
