The Most Unlikely List of Keto Foods

Béarnaise sauce This creamy sauce is great for steaks and potatoes, and while you shouldn’t eat a whole lot of potato on keto, you can roast some…

Because it’s easy to get tired of the same old thing

Keto. You know the drill, high fat, low carb. More energy, fewer cravings, stabilised sugar levels; and of course, weight loss.

We love it. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its challenges. Like, well, what to eat? It’s easy to get bored and feel like there’s not much you can eat.

Luckily for you, we’ve got a list of keto-friendly foods you’re going to love. Here it is:

Béarnaise sauce
This creamy sauce is great for steaks and potatoes, and while you shouldn’t eat a whole lot of potato on keto, you can roast some other low-carb veggies and dip them in béarnaise for creamy goodness.

Roast it. Trust me. You won’t regret it. Olive oil or avocado oil and a little salt and pepper. Life-changing.

Full fat. None of that low fat stuff, the thick, heavy, creamy stuff is what you want. Cook with it, make sauces with it, smother it on EVERYTHING.

This and olives. Friday nights, sorted.

Sliced tomatoes, sliced mozzarella, a couple basil leaves, olive oil, and you have a salad.

Heavy cream
Great for sauces. You can’t really use it for much else.

Bone broth
Drink this stuff in the morning, or in-between meals for great gut health.

Remember that roasted cauliflower you were making? Grate this all over it.

Deviled eggs! You can Keto and cater, who knew?

The meat of the gods. And you can eat it. You’re welcome.

You can pretty much recreate an entire full-English breakfast. Bacon, tomatoes, eggs, sausages, mushrooms. Just skip the toast.

Roasted or sautéed in tons of butter and some garlic salt.

Pecans, Brazil nuts, Hazelnuts
If you’re grazing – nuts are great. All you need to watch out for are the calories, as they add up pretty quick.

Poached eggs on fried asparagus and drizzled with olive oil is a pretty killer breakfast, or lunch.

Bok Choy
This popular Chinese veggie is delicious. It’s crunchy, flavorful, fresh and goes with pretty much anything.

You know all those people in the south? They’re onto something. Fried okra is wonderful. Traditionally it’s made with cornmeal, but you can bread it in crushed oats instead.

Olives are like marmite. You either love them or you hate them. Personally I love them. They make a great snack.

Okay so those are a few of our favorite non-traditional Keto foods- what are your favorites?
