Keto ingredients to keep at home

If you are maintaining a keto lifestyle, it is vital to know the best keto ingredients. Take a look at the essentials you should have in your pantry.

‘Keto’ is a low carb diet that is designed to make your body more efficient at burning fat so you can reach and maintain a healthy weight. It has become popular around the world because it’s not about ‘starving yourself’ for your figure.

Since keto is heavily based on what you eat, it is essential to know which foods to choose. What’s more, you will make it so much easier for yourself if you always have keto-friendly ingredients to hand.

Take a look at some of the best keto ingredients to keep in your pantry at home:

  • Oils: As keto is geared around consuming healthy fats, oils are essential. Olive oil is perhaps the healthiest and most versatile choice but many also swear by coconut oil or flaxseed oils. Use your oil for cooking, baking and as a salad dressing.

  • Nuts and Seeds: Although they contain the most carbs of any food on this list, nuts and seeds are still a great keto snack. Packed full of protein and healthy fats, as long as you track your carb intake you will want to keep some nuts and seeds in your pantry for snacking on, tossing over your breakfast or adding to dinner recipes.

  • Ghee: Ghee is an excellent butter substitute that has s rich and nutty flavour. It is also an excellent way to gain some healthy fats in your diet.

  • Eggs: High in proteins and vitamin D, eggs are a top source of healthy fats. Not only that, they are in credibly versatile. You wont' ever go hungry if you have a few eggs on standby in your fridge.

  • Tahini: Another great butter substitute, tahini is hip pocket friendly and high in calcium. It is great in smoothies and for baking as well as as a spread. Tahini is also a key ingredient in tasty home-made hummus.

  • Condiments: Always the best source of flavour, condiments are very keto-friendly. Mayonnaise, mustard, tomato sauce or ketchup, and salad dressings are all a great way to add flavour to any meal. Why not keep it healthy and try making your own?

  • Almond flour / Coconut flour: These flours are a great way to get around the loss of traditional wheat flour in the keto diet. With almond or coconut flour you can still enjoy baked goods while keeping your carb intake down.

  • Olives: Great as a snack or an added ingredient, olives are packed full of healthy fats. As an added bonus they come in all sorts of styles and flavours to add a kick to your meals.

  • Salt: Salt is essential for any pantry but is even more so for a keto pantry. The nature of ketosis increases your need to urinate and causes salt loss. Having some good quality salt to add to your meals is vital to help keep your system balanced.

  • Tallow / Brellow: Another sensational fat to use for cooking, tallow is high in Vitamin E. Or why not go that extra mile and use some brellow, or broth butter. This is the fat skimmed from the top of a beef broth pot and is loaded with all the vitamins and minerals found in bone broth and packed with extra broth flavour.

  • Bone Broth: Perhaps the best keto ingredient, bone broth is highly versatile, nutritious, and delicious.  Bone broth is beneficial for digestive health, it keeps your joints in good shape, and is excellent for your whole system. It can be drunk as a hot beverage on its own or used in any number of tasty meals. A high-quality bone broth is essential for all pantries, keto or not.
