Nobody ever said dieting was easy. Everyone gets cravings from time to time, but when following the keto diet, it’s important that the food you consume won’t kick you out of ketosis. If you start craving any of these foods, read on to see the best option to keep your ketosis on track.
When you’re craving [this], try [this] instead…
Breakfast sandwich / Mini frittatas
Ditch the greasy, paper-wrapped breakfast sandwich from your local fast food joint and make your own egg cups instead. Beat a dozen eggs with some salt and pepper, add your favorite low carb mix-ins like spinach and cheese, and get cooking.
An apple with nut butter / Veggie sticks with nut butter
Just because a food is healthy doesn’t mean it’s keto-friendly. Many fruits, like apples and oranges, contain too many carbs to fit into the keto lifestyle. Try some veggie sticks (think carrots and celery) with classic nut butter -- or step up your game and dip into our caffeinated nut butter pouches.
Hot wings / Buffalo cauliflower bites
Low-carb tailgating food -- now that’s what we’re talking about! Next time you feel inclined to reach for the wings, bake up some tasty buffalo cauliflower instead. Great for a snack, an appetizer, or your main course, you can make these in the oven, on the stove, or in an Instant Pot.
Chips / Nuts
While chips have very little to offer nutritionally (except three times your daily intake of sodium), mixed nuts are full of protein, fat, and fiber to keep you full all day long. Grab a handful of almonds, cashews, or pecans, and add some coconut, cacao, or sunflower seeds for extra keto-friendly flavor.
Dessert / Fat bombs
Fat bombs are the keto version of dessert bites, meant to satisfy your lingering sweet tooth while maintaining a keto lifestyle. They come in all kinds of flavors, from chocolate cherry to coconut lime and everything in between. Most fat bombs are made from coconut oil or cream cheese for a delicious, low-carb treat.
