A keto or low-carb diet can be challenging, but there are ways to enjoy your favorite items while sticking to the plan. Mashed potatoes, pizza, and granola are just some of the foods you can enjoy on your diet.
When you are able to find ways to eat the foods you love without getting excess carbs, you can keep losing weight and working towards your health goals without feeling deprived. Netrition can help you figure it out. Here are some tips for how to enjoy your favorite items while on a keto or low-carb diet.
Keep Snacks Low in Carbs
When you think about popular snacks foods, a lot of high-carb, starchy or sugary fare probably comes to mind. Chips, crackers, candy bars, and pretzels are a few examples, but it doesn’t have to be that way!
Many great-tasting snacks are naturally low in carbs. Examples include peanuts, nuts, string cheese, and vegetables with guacamole or cream-cheese-based dip. For the snacks you crave, there’s always Netrition. Our low-carb alternatives are plentiful, convenient, and satisfying. Here are some examples.
- Protein Potato Chips and Tortilla Chips
- Low-Carb Protein Bars
- Meat Snacks and Fish Snacks
- Keto Cheese Curls based on Pork Rinds or Vegan style.
Use Low-Carb Alternatives for Meals
Netrition can help you get through the day without feeling deprived. For breakfast, try Keto Cereal, Keto Granola, Keto Pancakes, or even Keto Muffins from a mix or in microwaveable single-serve cups.
Our Low-Carb Bread can meet every taste, since you can choose from Sliced Bread, Bagels, Flatbreads, Wraps, Pizza Crusts, and English Muffins. Just stuff them with keto-friendly toppings and fillings, such as cheese, chicken, lettuce, Avocado Mayo, Tomato Sauce, eggs, and more.
If you don’t feel like cooking, it’s easy to opt for an instant meal such as Hearts of Palm Keto Bowls. Side dishes can also be keto-friendly and low-carb, even if you love traditional starchy sides such as risotto, potatoes, and pasta. We have Low-Carb Pasta, Shirataki Carb-Free Rice, and Protein Mashed Potatoes to keep you satisfied and on track.
Use Low-Carb Ingredients in Recipes
If you’re a baker or chef, you can still be your creative self in the kitchen on a keto diet. Some baking ingredients, such as eggs, butter, oil, and nuts, are already naturally low in carbs. Others, such as sugar and flour, are pure carbs. What can you do about those?
These are some substitutes you can use when baking to keep your recipes keto-friendly but still delicious.
- Almond Flour instead of wheat or other grain-based flour.
- Sugar Substitutes, such as stevia or monk fruit.
- Sugar-Free Baking Chips in Dark, Milk, or White varieties.
- Sugar-Free Frosting
If you’re looking for something for dinner, you can always start with a carb-free protein, such as chicken, shrimp, fish, or ground turkey. Then use a keto-friendly sauce, such as Sugar-Free BBQ or Pasta Sauce. You can always add non-starchy vegetables and some cheese to finish off your easy keto dish.
