Vegetarian low-carb inspiration
Low carb doesn’t have to mean carnivore. We offer plenty of vegetarian choices, enjoyed by dedicated low-carb vegetarians and meat eaters who like to mix it up. (The keto quesadillas are amazing. Just saying…)
If you choose a so called lacto-ovo vegetarian way of eating, low carb will work like a charm, providing all the nutrients you need. Lacto-ovo means avoiding meat, poultry and fish and eating vegetables, nuts, eggs and dairy.
So, what vegetables are to be preferred on a keto diet? A rule of thumb is to avoid what is growing under ground and eat what grows above (read more about carbs in different vegetables).
Picking what’s in season is often the best option for many reasons. It’s easier to find organically and locally grown produce and they’re often more affordable.
Experiment with different textures and seasonings to create your own favorite recipes.
Even the most skeptic will have a hard time turning down broccoli fried in butter with a sprinkle of sea salt on top.
