Keto is all the rage – and we get why; simple rules and no disappointment meals that leave you hungry. What’s not to like?

Personally, though, we’ve found that part of the key to Keto dieting is having all the right food available, especially when you’re a person who’s constantly on the go.

So what do you eat on Keto when not just anything will do? Before we get into the list remember this: if you truly want to succeed on Keto, the key is to focus on all the food you can eat and not spend too much time thinking about what you can’t eat. You can do this!

Here are a few foods we recommend for Keto dieters.

1. Nuts Symmetrical pattern of almonds on blue. Flat lay.

Walnuts, almonds and macadamia nuts are all great sources of healthy fat and protein while being low in carbohydrates and sugars. A quarter cup of macadamias contains just 160 calories and 3 grams of carbohydrates but packs a nice 17 grams of fat.

2. Eggs Organic white eggs on blue background. Abstract pattern. Eggs in isometric.

Eggs, particularly boiled eggs, are a great option for Keto dieters. They make a great quick breakfast, and if you choose to boil them, you can chill them and take them around with you for snacking during the day.

3. Bacon Bacon slice being cooked in frying pan

Bacon-lovers rejoice! Eat this for breakfast, lunch with a salad, or dinner. Just watch out for the salt, and don’t be afraid to try leaner turkey bacon.

4. Cottage cheese bowl of fresh cottage cheese isolated on white background

It’s becoming easier and easier to find small tubs of flavoured cottage cheese in your favourite grocery stores. Don’t be afraid to eat it in the morning topped with a few(!) small pieces of strawberries or blackberries, or as a snack on the go. It also tastes good on a salad with a little balsamic vinegar drizzled over it.

5. Avocado two avocado half with seed on a pink background. minimal color still life photography

Come on, you know we had to include this on the list! This fruit is versatile, delicious, wonderfully fatty, and thankfully low in carbs. It’s a Keto dream. Smother it on your toast, eat it with a spoon, blend it into a sauce, whatever you want avocado to be, it’ll become.
