7 Surprisingly Low Carb Foods That Are 100% Keto Diet Approved
You’re at the grocery store. You see a tasty treat. You check the label, and your heart sinks. There are just way too many carbs… We know this feeling all too well, and if you are practicing a low carb or ketogenic diet, so do you. But today we aren’t going to focus on the foods we can’t have, instead we’re going to keep things positive and explore tasty food options that are surprisingly low in carbohydrates. Feeling hungry? You will be after reading ChipMonk’s Top 7 Surprisingly Low Carb Foods:
What could be better? Although high in calories and fat, butter actually has no carbs and is an excellent leveler for any low carb or ketogenic diet plan. Go for grass-fed butter if you’d also like some nutritious vitamin content.
Oh thank heaven! Bacon has only 0.1g carbs per serving! Like butter, bacon is high in saturated fat and calories so you won’t want to go overboard, but it is the perfect protein for any low carb breakfast.
3. Sirloin Steak
Can you believe there are practically no carbs in this delicious lean cut of meat? Sirloin steak and other red meats are also an excellent source of creatine and other nutrients your muscles need to grow.
Smooth, creamy, and delicious, avocado is another perfectly decadent low carb food. Avocados also contain a healthy dose of mono-unsaturated (good) fats that help your body break down and metabolize your food.
5. Dark Chocolate
This list just keeps getting tastier. Unsweetened dark chocolate only has 3g net carbs per 1oz serving. It’s also a rich source of healthy antioxidants. Of course, we all want a little sweetness, so aim for at least 70% dark chocolate, or check out our friends ChocZero for an extra-low carb, delicious chocolatey treat.
Black coffee has 0g carbs and is a great way to keep energy levels high throughout the day. It is also a surprisingly good source of magnesium & potassium. Just watch out for the carbs in your creamer or sweetener, and if you haven’t already, try AlluMonk or another allulose monk fruit blend. It is an amazing sugar substitute that pairs perfectly with a hot cup of coffee.
What?? Cookies aren’t low carb! Unless they are made from all natural nut & seed flours and sweetened with monk fruit. Soft-baked, satisfying, and available in 10 decadent flavors: ChipMonk Keto Cookies & Bites are a low carb dessert dream come true!
So if you’re ever feeling down about the restrictions on your low carb diet, just remember this list and smile. Butter, bacon, steak, avocados, dark chocolate, coffee, and even cookies are all still on the keto diet menu. Just be sure to always check the labels and indulge mindfully.
