So you are doing the KETO diet but have no idea where to start. Fear not! We have a KETO grocery list to get you going. We are sharing a PDF of KETO food ideas and helping your shopping trip go off without a hitch!

Ultimate KETO Grocery List

Let’s get started grocery shopping and fill you pantry, fridge and freezer full of KETO friendly foods. We have come up with a huge list of things for you to choose from for your next shopping excursion. BONUS: If you are like me, I am ALL ABOUT having things just delivered to the house. There are certain KETO foods that I just have shipped to my front door. You’ll see those noted down below as well.

I organized my KETO grocery list by how you shop. I just think it’s so much easier this way. So when you are in the meat department, this is what you will find.

Meat on KETO

Let’s face it – meat is the base of the KETO diet. On your grocery shopping list, meats are a plenty. We usually purchase 5-6 different meats to snack on and to use in meals.

The biggest thing to check is sugar contents. While you maybe thinking SUGAR IN MEAT? Yes, in hot dogs and certain lunch meats, there can be potential for hidden carbs and sugar. We don’t want sugar in our meat. Just check the label. Limit your processed meats when all possible.
