Keto vegetables and low carb fruits: eat the rainbow on keto

By Emma – on in Food
All veggies are not made equal, especially on a keto diet.

Fruits and vegetables have always been associated with making healthy choices when it comes to the foods we consume. Alas, the keto lifestyle does not embrace all fruits and vegetables since some actually contain too many carbs to get or stay in ketosis. Mango, pineapple, bananas, apples, these are fruits you want to avoid with a ten-foot pole if you don’t want to skyrocket your carb intake after something seemingly innocent like a fruit salad breakfast. This list of keto vegetables and low carb fruits should be memorized and reciting every time you step into the grocery store.

1 Leafy greens (spinach, swiss chard, kale, collards, arugula, lettuce, beet greens, watercress, cabbage, you get the point)


2 Asparagus


3 Celery


4 Broccoli


5 Endives


6 Cauliflower


7 Fennel


8 Brussel sprouts


9 Radishes


10 Turnips


11 Zucchini


12 Cucumber


13 Tomatoes


14 Mushrooms


15 Blackberries


16 Rhubarb


17 Avocados


18 Olives


19 Coconut


20 Cranberries


21 Lemon/Limes

The keto lifestyle is not impossible. Heck, there are even fast food keto options for those who want their monthly dose of McDonald’s or Taco Bell and some people even do keto on a vegan diet. You’ll probably notice the fruits and vegetables listed above are often used in keto breakfast, lunch and dinner recipe you try, and for good reason. Low in carbs but packed with flavour and nutrients, these keto vegetables and low carb fruits will get you into ketosis in no time. You won’t even miss mangoes or sweet potatoes.
