Nuts & Seeds – Nuts like almonds and pecans make great snacks when you need something quick on the go. They also come in handy for adding crunchiness to salads. Seeds such as chia seeds and flaxseeds are perfect for sprinkling over yogurt with some nuts sprinkled on top too if desired!

Coconut Oil Coconut oil has become popular due to the potential benefits it provides us throughout our day-to-day lives. It is great cooking oil and it can be used in baking too!

Coconut Cream – This cream made from coconuts makes the perfect replacement for heavy whipping cream so you don’t have to miss out on your favorite desserts while following a ketogenic diet! You won’t even notice that there wasn’t any dairy added when using this product instead of regular whipped cream.

Sugar Substitutes – There are many sugar substitutes available, but some of our favorites include monk fruit sweetener or stevia drops if we need just a little sweetness without all the carbs.

We also love Swerve Sweetener as well because it’s low carb with no additives which means more flavor without extra sugars being added.

We love using sour cream in many recipes from salads to wraps and beyond!

This is a perfect keto-friendly condiment that can be added on top of almost anything.

Almond Flour

Almond flour makes the best breading for meats when you’re following a Keto diet.

It’s also great in baking too which means you don’t have to sacrifice tasty treats just because they are low carb or gluten-free.

You can still enjoy baked goods without sacrificing your health goals by having foods with fewer carbs in them!

Avocado Oil

Avocado oil has become increasingly popular due to it being a healthy, high-fat cooking ingredient that provides us with essential fatty acids like omega-three fatty acids

(if you didn’t know, omega-three fatty acids are essential for us to consume).

Dijon Mustard

Dijon mustard is a staple in our house because we use it on sandwiches and wraps.

It adds the perfect flavor without all the carbs you find in regular mayonnaise!

Nutritional Yeast

Nutritional yeast can be used as cheese replacements with added benefits too.

We love using this ingredient not just for its cheesy flavor but also because of how healthy it actually is when consumed daily!

A great addition to many dishes especially ones that need a little extra zest or even sprinkled over avocado toast!

Oils and butter;

There are so many oils out there that you can use but our favorites are coconut oil, avocado oil, and ghee just to name a few.

These are some of our favorite keto pantry staples from nuts & seeds to oils and mustards, these products are essential for success on the keto diet.
