The 3 Most Essential Tips for Vegetarian Keto Dieters
If you’re a vegetarian, or just sick of steak (sometimes we all need a break from eating meat at every meal), we’ve got you covered.
There are plenty of delicious keto vegetarian recipes you can make. They’re all free from meat and seafood - and you’ll also find egg-free and dairy-free options, too.
By sticking to these high-fat low-carb Keto vegetarian dishes, you’ll be able to get your body into fat-burning mode and reach ketosis. No meat-eating required!
And to help you on your way, and make things easier, here are three essential tips for every vegetarian keto dieter:
1) Add These Superstar Foods To Your Vegetarian Keto Shopping List
Foods High in Healthy Fats:
Avocados are delicious, versatile and packed with healthy fats. They also contain plenty of fiber, helping you feel full for longer. Making them a great go-to food for your Keto diet!
You can eat avocado halves as a snack, just add a little salt. Or try using your avocados to create this Keto Avocado Toast for breakfast.
Flax seeds are high in omega-3 and antioxidants called lignans. Use them as a “breading” on vegetables or turn them into a sweet or savory porridge.
Foods With Plenty of Protein:
Broccoli, asparagus, artichokes and brussel sprouts are all surprisingly high in protein. And so are spinach and kale! Add these healthy veggies to your soups, salads and stir frys.
With their high protein and fat content, eggs are a staple ingredient for many vegetarians on the keto diet. Don’t just stick to making scrambled eggs - you can also make Keto Egg Muffins (leave out the bacon) or use this tasty Keto Paprika Deviled Eggs recipe.
Nut-based Dairy substitutes:
Cashew cheese, nut-based milks and coconut yogurt all contain plenty of protein. If you’re wondering how to do vegetarian keto without eggs, then you’ll find these “dairy” products are key to your success.
You can find recipes for Keto Substitutes For Dairy here - they can be surprisingly high in carbs though, so be careful not to overeat them.
2) Create Your Own Vegetarian Keto Meal Plan
While choosing and trying new recipes is fun, it can be tiring to do every day! Picking a handful of go-to recipes for each of your meals is a great way to take some of the hassle out of your Keto diet.
3) Make Sure You’re Hitting Your Macros (Protein, Fat, Carbs)
Getting your balance of macronutrients right is the key to entering ketosis. And it is, unfortunately, easier for meat eaters. But it’s certainly possible for plant-based dieters, too!
As a vegetarian keto dieter, you’ll need to pay particular attention to your carb intake vs your protein intake. Make sure you eat plenty of foods high in protein and fat and stick to low-carb vegetables.
You might find it helpful to track your macros and ketone levels, to make sure you stay on track. There’s a full guide on How to Track Your Keto Diet here.
With the right ingredients, a little forward planning, and careful macro-tracking… you can make your vegetarian keto diet a success!
