The Best Ketogenic-Friendly Superfood Recipes

The ketogenic diet, which took off in popularity in 2017, involves consuming foods that prompt your body to enter what is called “ketosis,” a state of being that makes it easier to burn fat and, in turn, lose weight. Some of the most common foods consumed as part of the ketogenic diet include natural fats like butters and oils, meat, fish and seafood, eggs, cheese, certain vegetables, and some berries. In addition to eating these foods, individuals following a ketogenic diet should avoid sugary, processed foods, grains and starches, most fruit, beans and legumes, root vegetables, and alcohol.

Besides weight loss, there are several health benefits of the ketogenic diet. For example, many people choose to follow a ketogenic diet for increased mental focus, diabetes support, reduced acne, and gut health. That being said, it’s always a good idea to consult a physician or nutritionist before adapting any new lifestyle changes such as a diet.

For those interested in the ketogenic diet, it can sometimes be a bit intimidating to whip up brand new recipes. Therefore, we’ve collected some ketogenic-friendly superfood recipes to make the process a bit easier. Check them out below and start cooking, superfoodies!
