Have you been trying out the Keto diet in 2020? If you’re struggling to find low carb foods at the grocery store, vegetables are your best friend. With loads of fiber, vegetables can keep you fuller for longer. Here are our favorite Keto vegetables and how to enjoy them!
Cauliflower is a great source of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect your cells from harmful free radicals and inflammation. It’s one of the best Keto vegetables because it can be used as a substitution in high carb dishes (bye bye, processed carbs!). Many people on a Keto diet use cauliflower as an alternative to rice, potatoes, pasta, and even pizza crust. At Nutracelle, we wanted to use cauliflower to recreate one of the most popular appetizers, buffalo wings! They take less than three minutes to prep, and will give you the same spicy kick as your favorite chicken wings. Find the recipe here!
Even though you may have hated this green, cruciferous vegetable when you were a kid, broccoli has immune-boosting and disease-fighting properties just like cauliflower, and it provides more than 100% of the daily recommended value for Vitamins C and K. It’s also super easy to incorporate it into your favorite recipes! Throw it on top of a salad, roast it in the oven, or make a stir fry. Find Nuracelle’s Keto stir fry recipe here.
Although avocado is technically a fruit, many people enjoy it as if it’s a vegetable, since it’s not sweet, like fruit. It’s also one of the best low carb and high fat foods. It contains beneficial fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants. Not to mention, it’s extremely creamy and satiating. If you are allergic to nuts and are struggling to consume enough healthy fats, throw some avocado in your next smoothie! Blend it with two fruits and vegetables of your choice, and you will be left with creamy deliciousness. Don’t forget to mix in some Nutralean or NutraVegan, too!
Brussels sprouts are low carb, filled with fiber, and if you cook them right, it can feel like you’re cheating. The best part about brussel sprouts? They taste great with other high fat foods, like bacon, olive oil, and cheese. You can also incorporate them into nearly every meal. Enjoy them as a side dish, appetizer, or a main course when thrown in a fresh salad.
