I have been asked several times already what I always have in my kitchen, what is my standard shopping list. I decided to share with you the products that are my must-haves every day. I will not describe the benefits them all as it can be found anywhere, however I would like to show you how I use them. My shopping list will be divided into a couple of blog posts and today we will start with fruits and vegetables. Just keep in mind that it is my standard shopping list, of course, sometimes I buy additional items as well, it depends on my needs. I am curious if my shopping list is similar to yours. Leave your must-haves in the comments.
What kind of fruits and vegetables are on my healthy keto shopping list?
In this blog post we will talk only about fruits and vegetables. In the following posts you can learn more about rest of my items. Each of the list will include my own recipes with the selected items. I hope it will help you a lot!
I don’t eat too many fruits, so my list of these products is pretty small. I reduce the sugar in my diet to a minimum so fruits are not on my daily base list.
Avocado is my number one and it joins me with most of my meals. It is a great source of healthy fat, minerals and vitamins. It just has really good nutrients and it is a dense food.
