I don’t know about you guys, but I had never tasted  Brussels sprouts until I started keto. Honestly, I didn’t eat a large variety of veggies growing up, so the produce aisle was a little overwhelming. My family is about 50/50 on the Brussels some love them while others detest them. We all agree on one thing though, they stink! It’s so funny when the kids walk in and ask about taking the trash out because I’ve just microwaved some Brussels sprouts. 

I love using fresh produce but sometimes here in Kodiak; it’s safe to go with the frozen variety (and of course when they are out of season you’re probably better off that way). 

If you don’t care for this recipe or need a little less fat (I’m looking at you pork rinds, bacon, and cheese), you can always toss some balsamic vinegar on them (go easy because it does have carbs).

The keto diet is probably one of the most natural diets to be on during the holiday season. Most holiday foods are loaded with fat which is excellent for you, and the sweet foods are easily “ketofied” with stevia and berries so don’t stress this holiday season because we’ve got you covered!

Non-starchy Vegetables & Keto: 

The best low carb vegetables that you can eat are the leafy greens such as spinach, kale, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, cucumbers, and many others. 

They are good for you in so many ways and do not contain the levels of sugar and starches that other vegetables such as potatoes do. These vegetables are particularly nutrient-dense and are always recommended for everyone, but particularly those who are suffering from health problems. This is partly because they are full of nutrients and antioxidants, which are essential for good health.

As a really general and basic rule, opt for vegetables that grow above the ground, as these are generally lower in sugar than root vegetables, and typically come from the flowering part of the plant.

Final Thoughts:

A word of warning, if you suffer from diabetes or any other health issue you should consult your doctor before changing your diet, particularly when considering a low carb diet. 

This is because the levels of sugar in the blood become increasingly important at this time and a low carb diet that avoids high starch vegetables will have a significant effect on your blood sugar level. It is best to engage in any diet changes under medical supervision.
