Starting KETO (7 Ketogenic Veggies You Can Eat)
Hello and welcome, this is Dr. Berry. Today, I want to talk to you about the wonders of ketogenic diet-approved vegetables. Contrary to popular belief, a ketogenic diet doesn’t mean you live solely on bacon, butter, and ribeye steak. You can, and should, eat vegetables on a ketogenic diet. Here are seven, plus a bonus vegetable, that you can enjoy guilt-free.
One of my personal favorites, asparagus is very low in carbs and packed with vitamins, minerals, and prebiotic fiber that feeds your gut bacteria.
Cabbage is a blessing straight from nature. You can’t eat too much of it. It’s super low in carbs, rich in good sulfur, and contains prebiotic fiber.
Broccoli is a powerhouse of nutrition. It’s a good source of omega-3 fatty acids and is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients.
Don’t let the name turn you off. Kale is very low in carbs, contains omega-3s, and is rich in vitamins, minerals, and those beneficial phytonutrients.
Celery is super low in carbs and brimming with vitamins, minerals, and other phytonutrients. It’s so low in calories, it’s almost like a negative calorie food.
One of my personal favorites, cucumbers are very low in carbs and incredibly easy to grow at home.
7. Brussels Sprouts
Brussels sprouts are a great source of omega-3s, packed with vitamins and minerals, and very low in carbs.
Olives Olives are full of healthy fats (olive oil), vitamins, and minerals. They’re delicious and excellent for your health.
Remember, these vegetables contain phytonutrients, some of which may not have been discovered yet, that are beneficial to your health. If you don’t like veggies, don’t worry. You can retrain your palate to enjoy these nutritious foods. So, eat your veggies and enjoy the health benefits they bring.
Until next time, this is Dr. Berry, signing off. Eat well, live better.
