This keto grocery list is your ultimate guide to everything you can (and can't) eat when you go keto. And, since the ketogenic diet is all about monitoring your macros, we'll include foods you're cool to consume from time to time as well, but it's up to you to keep track and stay in ketosis.
Despite what you've heard, it's totally possible (and relatively easy) to keep keto-approved shopping cost-effective. While it is suggested to purchase organic produce, grass-fed beef, cage-free eggs, and wild-caught seafood, it's not necessary. If you keep your carb intake low while maintaining a high fat intake, you can enter a state of ketosis without breaking the bank. Determine what works best for your budget and goals.
