What is a typical Keto lunch?
Everybody on the keto diet has different needs at lunchtime. For some, it will be a quick keto lunch on the road, a keto packed lunch or a keto snack at work. For others, it will be a more carefully considered meal. The good news is, there are key keto-friendly choices that will help with both. Try a bowl of keto-friendly non-starchy vegetables such as broccoli, spinach or avocado with some seafood or chicken, for example. Healthy low carb soups are perfect for a keto lunch. Nut-based keto snack bars can keep hunger at bay too.
What are the best ingredients for a good keto lunch?
Non-starchy vegetables, such as avocado, spinach and broccoli combined with high-quality seafood, fish, meat and poultry make for an excellent keto-friendly lunch. Egg, cream and cheese recipes such as omelettes and frittatas are good too. Given that keto requires low carbohydrate intake, bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, sugar, processed foods, artificial colouring and preservatives are to be avoided.
What are the healthiest keto lunch foods?
Balancing the intake of the right kind of fat and carbohydrates and ensuring you get high levels of protein is key to successfully navigating your keto diet. Eggs have no carbohydrates or sugars, but 5 grams of fat so can make a valuable contribution. Non-starchy vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower, asparagus, avocado, broccoli and cucumber are low in calories and carbs too but are a great source of important nutrients. Cheese, including everything from blue cheese to cottage cheese, can be a great source of lunchtime protein and fats. Good quality fish, meat and poultry should also be on your keto shopping list.
