I can’t help but think of the Veggie Tales song every time I read the word celery. Ignore me, let’s just get back to talking all about them carbs.

If you are looking for a ZERO CARB VEGETABLE – spinach is your veggie! That’s right, spinach has no carbs. Chow down and enjoy. 

 


Tomato

So tomatoes are one of those things that certain members of the Keto Police Squad frown upon. But in moderation, it’s all good. Especially if you are on team Keto Dirty!

Tomatoes are 5 net carbs per cup. Make sure to watch out for sneaky carbs in canned sauces containing tomatoes. 


Onions

Yes, before you freak out – this isn’t wrong. If you are a strict carb counter, you may want to watch your onion intake.

Onions have 12 net carbs per cup. 


Red Bell Peppers

Oh stuffed red bell peppers sound divine right about now. 

 

red-peppers-keto-vegetable

Red bell peppers have 6 net carbs per cup. Interesting, researching other bell peppers – here is there carb count. Green bell peppers have 4 net carbs. Yellow bell peppers have 8 net carbs.

Even crazier, this is all the same plant. Red bell peppers are the most mature pepper. The plant starts green and some ripen to a yellow and red. Fascinating!


Lettuce

Lettuce eat. Okay, stupid keto pun but had to do it.

Keep enjoying your salads! Lettuce has 1 net carb per cup, that’s it!

 


Jalapeno

I love me so heat and jalapenos are a staple in our fridge.

Jalapenos have 1 net carb per cup. That’s it, and good luck enjoying more than 1 cup!

 


Green Beans

I’ve never been a huge green bean person, but maybe I should give them another try. These keto vegetables make a great side dish. 

green-beans-keto-vegetable

Green beans have 4 net carbs per cup. 


Garlic

I am for sure no vampire. The amount of garlic this girl consumes is insane. Apologies in advance if my breath is a wee bit garlicky!

 

garlic-keto-vegetable

Eat up! Garlic has just 1 net carb per cup. 


Brussel Sprouts

There are 6 net carbs in brussel sprouts.  I would say that a typical brussel sprouts serving is around 1/2 cup, so would be 3 net carbs for half a cup serving. 

brussel-sprouts-keto-vegetables

Don’t miss our delicious Roasted Brussel Sprout Bacon Rosemary side dish. 

 


Cucumbers

This low carb vegetable is a new found love. As silly as it may sound, I just tried cucumbers for the first time a few years ago. It’s been a beautiful love story ever since. 

cucumbers-keto-vegetable

 

Cucumbers have 2 net carbs per cup. 


Cauliflower

If you haven’t eaten cauliflower are you even on the keto diet? I kid! Everyone knocks the cauliflower, but it’s healthy and can be a great low carb rice substitute.

Carrots

While on the carbier side, these orange beauties are good for you (and apparently good for your eyes.)

 

carrot-keto-vegetable-1

Cabbage

This is another keto veggie that I only recently have tried. Cabbage has so many great qualities, though I have to admit before keto I only used them on my boobs after breast feeding!

cabbage-keto-vegetable

Cabbage has 5 net carbs per cup. 


Avocado

Is it a fruit or is it a vegetable? Okay, I know in school we learned avocados are fruit but since they are used like a vegetable – I’m just going to leave this right here. 

avocados-keto-vegetable

Avocados have 3 net carbs per cup. That’s it, y’all!  If you are looking for one of my favorite keto recipes that includes an avocado, check out our Mexican Spicken -Spicy KETO Chicken recipe.


Artichokes

If I could marry artichokes, well that would just be weird. All that said, I do love artichokes and so thankful that they are on our keto vegetables list!

artichokes-keto-vegetable

Artichokes have 5 net carbs per globe. If you enjoy artichokes, but are short on time – artichoke hearts in a jar are a great way to add low carb veggies to a dish! Bonus, they last a lot longer than fresh artichokes. 


Asparagus

Looking for the perfect side low carb vegetable for steak? Meet asparagus! This keto veggie is great on the grill or roasted with garlic.
