Picture of a Young Lady Shopping With a Green Basket.If you plan to start a ketogenic diet, then you might be feeling some confusion over which foods to eat.

With this in mind, this article provides a keto shopping list featuring the most suitable foods.

You can see the carbohydrate content and net carbs clearly listed for each food.

As a general guide, the upper limit to stay in ketosis is approximately 50g carbohydrate per day (1).

Keto Shopping List

Below you will find a keto diet food list showing a variety of keto-friendly foods along with the number of carbs they contain.

The data is shown in tables spread over ten different categories, which include:

  • Dairy
  • Fruit
  • Meat
  • Nuts
  • Oils and Fats
  • Poultry
  • Seafood
  • Seeds
  • Vegetables
  • Everything else (such as sauces, snacks, and condiments)

About the Carb Count

For all foods, the carb count is per 100g.

‘Total carbs’ refers to the overall amount of carbohydrate in the food.

In contrast, ‘net carbs’ means the amount of non-fiber carbohydrate in the food—the carbs that are digestible.

Some foods can be high in carbohydrate but very low in net carbs (such as cacao), while others can be the opposite.

Sources

Nutrition data and the USDA Food Database are the sources for all nutrition values.

Dairy

A Variety of Dairy Foods.

Most dairy foods are an excellent choice for a keto diet, but be careful to buy real dairy.

By this, I mean that a yogurt full of added sugar and chocolate rings is not going to be beneficial for health.

Also, while full-fat milk is perfectly healthy food, there is approximately 5g lactose (milk sugars) per 100ml.

With this in mind, don’t go overboard with drinking milk if you are trying to do a ketogenic diet.

For instance, a big glass of milk would be almost half of your daily carb limit.

FoodTotal CarbsNet Carbs
Butter0.10.1
Cheese (hard – parmesan)3.23.2
Cheese (medium hard – cheddar)1.31.3
Cheese (soft – brie)0.50.5
Clotted Cream22
Cottage Cheese3.43.4
Cream Cheese44
Ghee0.40.4
Greek Yogurt44
Heavy Cream2.82.8
Kefir55
Milk (whole)55
Sour Cream44
Quark44

Full-fat dairy foods are one of the best things you can eat on keto.

Not only are they low in carbohydrate, but they’re also very nutrient-dense and full of beneficial fat-soluble vitamins (2, 3).

Key Point: The best keto dairy foods are butter, cheese, ghee, and heavy cream.

Fruit

Various Low-Carb Berries - Strawberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, Blueberries.

Technically, you can eat any fruit you want on a ketogenic diet if you’re watching your overall carb intake.

However, it’s better to focus on nutrient-dense, lower sugar fruits which have the least carbohydrate content.

Some good examples are below.

FoodTotal CarbsNet Carbs
Avocado92
Blackberries105
Blueberries14.512.4
Boysenberries12.26.9
Cloud Berries8.68.6
Cranberries12.27.6
Elderberries18.411.4
Gooseberries10.25.9
Huckleberries8.78.7
Lemon9.36.5
Lime118
Olives (black)6.33.1
Olives (green)41
Raspberries11.95.4
Rhubarb4.52.7
Salmonberries10.18.2
Strawberries7.75.7
Tomatoes3.92.7

As you can see, berries and fatty fruits (avocado and olives) dominate the table.

One of the main things to consider when putting your keto shopping list together is that not all carbs are bad.

This is a common keto mistake people make when adopting the diet, and it is important to remember that carb quality is important.

For instance, rice has approximately 73 grams of net carbohydrate, and it is relatively low in nutrients (4).

On the other hand, avocado, olives, and berries all contain a few carbs, but also a wide range of nutrients.

Key Point: While all fruit can fit in if you carefully monitor carbs, the most keto friendly fruits are avocado, olives, tomatoes, rhubarb, and blackberries.

Meat

A Fatty Cut of Steak (Raw).

There are no real restrictions on the type of meat on a ketogenic diet.

The only exception here would be for processed meats which contain sugars or a marinade.

Red meat is the king when it comes to nutrients, and organic grass-fed meat is great if you can source it.

The reason for this is that it has a slightly more beneficial nutrient profile and higher amounts of omega-3 and conjugated linoleic acid.

Several studies show that both of these nutrients offer benefits for cardiovascular health (5, 6).

However, if you’re on a tight budget, then don’t worry about the type of meat – any is better than none.

FoodTotal CarbsNet Carbs
Bacon1.5*1.5*
Beef – all cuts00
Buffalo00
Ham00

Mutton00
Organ Meats – liver3.83.8
Pork00
Prosciutto0.3*0.3*
Salami3.8*3.8*
Sausages0**0**

* Cured meat products such as bacon and salami often contain tiny amounts of sugar.

** Based on 99% meat sausages; be careful as some brands of sausage use significant amounts of flour in their products.

Key Point: Meat generally has no carbs, so it belongs on your shopping list. All meats are perfect ketogenic diet foods.

Nuts

Various Nuts - Macadamia, Almond, Brazil, Walnuts, Hazelnuts and More.

There are many types of nuts to choose from, and not all of them are low in carbs.

In fact, some nuts—such as cashews—have quite a high carbohydrate load.

But all things considered, nuts are a healthy food that belongs on your keto shopping list.

On the downside, they are very energy dense; 100g of nuts can come to around 700 calories.

With this in mind, don’t go crazy on snacking with nuts—a small handful is easily enough.

FoodTotal CarbsNet Carbs
Almonds21.79.5
Brazil Nuts12.34.8
Hazelnuts16.77
Macadamia14.25.6
Peanuts16.17.6
Pecans144.4
Pine Nuts13.19.4
Walnuts13.77

All of these nuts are full of important vitamins and minerals, and they taste great.

Key Point: No matter which nuts you buy, you will be gaining health benefits from eating them. However, the ‘most keto’ of these nuts are brazil nuts, pecans, and macadamia.

Oils and Fats

Various Cooking Oils In Glass Bottles.

Regarding fats and oils, the first thing to remember is that just because a certain food is ketogenic doesn’t make it healthy.

Some of the unhealthiest foods on the planet are ‘keto’ by nature.

For instance, partially hydrogenated trans fats have links to cancer and cardiovascular heart disease (7, 8).

And yes, these foods are ‘ketogenic’ – no carbs in sight! So, again, it’s not just the amount of carbs that matter — it’s the food and nutrient quality.

Given this, here are some of the very best oils and fats that are both ketogenic and healthy.

FoodTotal CarbsNet Carbs
Avocado Oil00
Butter0.10.1
Coconut Oil00
Extra Virgin Olive Oil00
Ghee00
Goose Fat00
Lard00
Macadamia Nut Oil00
Red Palm Oil00
Tallow00

As shown above, there are no carbs to worry about with fats and oils.

For me, I think the best choices here are extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, lard, and butter.

If you have money to burn, then ghee and avocado oil are also excellent but pricey options.

Lastly, margarine, trans fats, and industrial vegetable oils are some of the most important foods to avoid on a ketogenic diet.

Key Point: There are many great oils and fats that taste delicious and are also good for you. Butter, coconut oil, and extra virgin olive oil should be the first choices on your shopping list.

Poultry (and Eggs)

Picture of a Roast Chicken Seasoned With Lemon.

While poultry is not quite as nutrient-dense as red meat, it does contain a range of beneficial nutrients, and it is zero carb (9, 10).

Of course, the exception is fried chicken, which is neither ketogenic nor good for health!

As for eggs, they are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet.

FoodTotal CarbsNet Carbs
Chicken00
Duck00
Eggs0.80.8
Goose00
Turkey00
Quail00

Poultry should be another mainstay on your ketogenic diet shopping list, and I like to eat it once or twice per week.

Eggs have a large number of benefits and if you have any concerns over their cholesterol content, don’t worry.

Dietary cholesterol is very different to plasma cholesterol (the amount in our blood), and it is “no longer a nutrient of concern” (11, 12).

Key Point: Meat generally has no carbs, so any type is fine for your shopping list. All meats are perfect ketogenic diet foods.

Seafood

Two Fillets of Wild Alaskan Salmon.

There are all kinds of different fish and shellfish that are perfect ketogenic foods.

Fish

Here are some of the most common edible fish that you can buy.

Tuna00

Just to point out the asterisk next to five of these fish — this is for the purpose of identifying the best choices.

All these fish are low in mercury and also contain decent amounts of omega-3 fatty acids (13, 14).

Shellfish and Other Seafood

Unlike fish, shellfish and other sea creatures do contain carbs—but only in minimal amounts.

Shellfish are also full of nutrients, and they are some of the healthiest foods you can eat.

Squid3.13.1
Key Point: All seafood tends to be incredibly nutritious—try to include it on your keto grocery list.

Seeds

Various Edible Seeds In White Bowls - Includes Chia and Flaxseed.

Seeds are interesting in that they contain large amounts of fat, but also a high amount of carbohydrate.

However, as you can see from the table below, the majority of the carbs are from fiber and non-digestible.

FoodTotal CarbsNet Carbs
Chia Seeds43.86.1
Flaxseed28.91.6
Hemp Seeds125
Pumpkin Seeds17.814.9
Sesame Seeds23.411.6
Sunflower Seeds2011.4

Don’t feel like you have to include seeds on your keto shopping list.

They are reasonably healthy food that can help with meeting nutrient requirements, but they’re not necessary.

Key Point: Seeds are high in fat and contain a large amount of fibrous carbohydrate. On the negative side, they aren’t the tastiest of ketogenic foods.

Vegetables

Leafy Green Vegetables In a White Bowl.

There are hundreds of vegetables that are suitable for a keto diet.

One of the first that comes to mind is zucchini, especially considering it’s the base vegetable for the infamous zoodles.

Generally speaking, it’s best to emphasize leafy greens as they contain minimal amounts of carbohydrate. In addition, leafy greens are extremely nutrient-rich — especially foods such as spinach and seaweed (15, 16).

While starchy vegetables such as potatoes and sweet potatoes do offer valuable nutrients, they are simply too high in carbohydrate for a ketogenic diet.

Spinach3.61.4
Turnip6.44.6
Yellow Onion97
Zucchini32

Overall, most vegetables are low in net carbs and suitable for your grocery list.

However, if you want to stay in ketosis, then limit the amount of higher carb veggies such as carrots and onions.

Key Point: While there’s a range of veggies that qualify as keto-friendly groceries, some offer more health benefits than others. Leafy greens are among the best low carb vegetables.

Condiments / Sauces / Snacks

A Glass Jar of Peanut Butter With a Knife Taking Some Out.

As many of these foods are commercial products, keep in mind that the nutrition values may change depending on the brand.

However, providing you read the labels to confirm the ingredients, they are still relatively healthy foods to put on your keto grocery list.

While it is true that most of these are processed foods, we can still class them as ‘clean’ foods.

On the negative side, some peanut butter and dark chocolate brands use harmful additives in their products.

So once more, be careful to read the ingredients label if it’s a brand you don’t know well.

*Beef jerky contains zero carbs providing you buy a quality product — look for 100% beef with only added seasoning.

As for the rest of these foods, they are all perfectly acceptable for a ketogenic diet in their standard serving sizes.

Key Point: A keto shopping list has room for condiments, sauces, and snacks. However, check the ingredients list carefully for unnecessary additives.

A Strict Keto Diet Food List

The above shopping list contains a wide range of different foods, some of which can quickly become too high in carbohydrate.

For those who are not so good at moderation (or measuring food), the following 101 foods on this ‘strict keto diet food list’ contain less than 10g of total carbohydrate per 100g.

While this 10% limit isn’t strictly necessary, this resource aims to provide you with a list of definite ketogenic foods at a glance.

Herbs and Spices

A Bunch of Rosemary Sprigs.

Firstly, herbs and spices offer a burst of flavor to your dishes. They also provide additional benefits through their high polyphenol content.

Since we only need a pinch of each herb/spice in our cooking, they contain trace amounts of each macronutrient.

Here are ten great options;

  • 50. Basil
  • 51. Cinnamon
  • 52. Cloves

Final Thoughts

All in all, the majority of healthy foods can easily fit into a ketogenic diet plan.

While there’s a big difference between a good and a bad keto plan, if you stick to this list of foods then you’ll be on the right track for nutritional ketosis.

I have recently changed from cow’s milk to grass fed camel’s milk as I heard it was better for you. Is this OK or is there little difference/nutritional value to cow’s milk? I do have one cup of organic, naturally decaffeinated coffee each day on the keto diet.

Very informative but I am a bit confused….the net carb listed…Do I subtract this from the total carbs to get the net carb..or is this already done and it lists what the net carbs are actually? I hope you understand what I am trying to say. Ex..salsa …7 total carbs. With 6 net carbs….so do I subtract and get 1 for the net carb or is 6 the correct net carbs….thanks

I have not had a gall bladder for 10 years. I’ve been doing keto for over 3 months and haven’t had much of an issue. The first couple of weeks I ran to the bathroom a few times, but that is pretty much over. Rumbly tummy here and there. Indigestion a couple of times, but not unbearable. A bit of constipation. I also try to have lots of meat free meals (avocado & feta based salads, nut/seed meal, coleslaw, chia pudding) just cause i get sick of meat. Maybe that helps. Good luck.

Hi, I’d be pleased to receive a bit more detail on total /net carbs, because there are 2 types of fiber, in / soluble. Insoluble goes through the system but doesn’t some of the soluble get absorbed? In other words, is the ‘net’ value not a bit deceptive? Also, some basic fruits aren’t on this list, and I’d love to know their values: banana, orange, apple, pear and, if possible, dates and pomegranate, which are staples in our home. Thanks so much. This is a very helpful site to ease the learning curve !

Thanks for the article. It will certainly help me as I get started on the keto way of eating. I do have one question. When beginning, is it necessary to stop all carbs to get the body in a state of ketosis, and then add them in, or just significantly lower the intake of carbs?

I believe that mastering the basics when it comes to keto diet is vital. This means understanding the ins and outs of keto foods and nutrition.


I like that the fruit and seafood list is way bigger than in any other similar post I have seen.

Just food for thought: Consider adding the carb count also in ounces, as there may be many ketoers who are not used to grams.

Overall very thorough article

I’m just learning about ketosis. I’m currently using intermittent fasting to promote stored fat loss, and while this diet focuses on the timing of your eating, and not necessarily what you eat, do you think it could have some of the same benefits while in the fasting state as a ketogenic diet? Or does the body have to be in ketosis 24 hours/day to be effective? Do you think that intermittent fasting could be combined with a ketogenic diet for even greater effectiveness? Thanks for your time, great article!

Thank you for the informative list. The one thing I noticed though is that there are no serving sizes listed. So how would one know ‘how many’ blackberries give you 5 net carbs or how much butter gives you 0.1 net carbs? Knowing the count is great but I can’t imagine a whole pint of blackberries is the same 5 net carbs as say 10 berries would.

Can you help?

ideal Protein diet foods. Thank you so much for the information.

Thank You!

This was very informative. I am trying to start this kind of diet but am having a hard time with it. It is really hard to cook, cook, cook when you work until 7 pm. at night. Also, I love a nice glass of red wine at night and there is no room for this.

I am hoping to get a grip on HFLC. You have been able to put it in a better prospective for me & I thank you for that.

As I am trying to establish a low oxalate diet to prevent calcium stones I am having difficulty choosing vegetables and fruits that still work at a ketosis diet. Meat is not a problem but it seems the best fruit and vegetables for one are the worst for the other. Any suggestions on how to create a suitable plan? Thanks in anticipation
