With research continuing to support keto’s potential health benefits—especially when it comes to metabolic and cognitive function—it’s no wonder the trendy diet seems here to stay.
But eating 70 percent of your calories from fat—and doing it in a healthy way—is no simple task. At its worst, a keto diet is loaded with bacon and all but devoid of veggies. “Many people following keto today consume meals high in processed meats that have been linked to disease and processed dairy that much of the population is intolerant to,” says Roseanne Schnell, C.D.N., dietitian for The Vitamin Shoppe.
That’s why she put together a keto meal plan that’s chock-full of the good stuff, including low-carb vegetables, vitamins, minerals, fiber, omega-3s, and plenty of greens—in addition to all of the healthy fats you could ever want. Adjust the portion sizes to meet your needs, and you’re good to go!
