Some of them can spike blood sugar and contain a ton of protein. For these 2 reasons, low-carb choices aren’t always the best keto friendly snacks.

FAQs on What to Eat
Is it really OK to eat cream cheese?
Yes, cream cheese is made from pasteurized milk and is a popular choice on this diet.
Is peanut butter good for keto?
Yes, you can enjoy peanut butter because it’s high in protein and healthy fats. We suggest using a 100% natural butter without added salt, sugar or oil. We also like almond butter.
Is popcorn allowed on keto?
Nope. Since popcorn is a grain, you shouldn’t have it. It’s also high in carbs. Hopefully some of the snack ideas above will you help you replace the craving.
Can you have ice cream?
You can have some ice creams though it may be difficult to find one that works.
You can also make your own using heavy whipping cream and dark cocoa. If you’re buying ice cream out, make sure to check the amount of carbs in each serving.
Can you have bananas, apples or other fruit on a ketogenic diet?
No, you will need to give up most of your fruit on this particular diet. Fruits are typically high in carbs. The only fruits you may have in moderation is berries.
