5 Keto-Friendly Vegetables You Should Eat More Of

The keto diet is filled with bacon, cheese, lard, and other high-fat foods, but keto followers aren’t restricted to processed foods.

Here are some keto-friendly veggies that can help you feel less guilty after that bacon binge:


Net Carbs – 2 grams

One serving of arugula (about four cups) has just 20 calories, as well as a strong supply of vitamins A and C, and folic acid and calcium. If you like a peppery flavour in your greens, this keto veggie is for you.


Net Carbs – 2 grams

An asparagus serving has the same net calories and grams as arugula, and loaded with folic acid, too. It also has vitamins A and C. In fact, the only difference between them is asparagus’ high fiber content, and taste.

Bell Peppers

Net Carbs – 4 grams

Bell peppers are considered a staple for those on low-carb diets, and for good reason: Medium bell peppers have 25 calories, and a whopping 190% of your daily vitamin C requirement.

Brussels Sprouts

Net Carbs – 3 grams

Broccoli’s equally unpopular cousin, Brussels sprouts boast robust nutrition: One serving have a strong 40 calories, 2 grams of protein, and more vitamin C than you need in a day. Plus, they have anti-cancer, heart health, and anti-inflammatory benefits.
