You did your research. You know which foods are keto-friendly and which you should avoid.

You know how to count your macros.

You’ve even bookmarked this 7-day keto diet meal plan to get started.

The next step? Hit the grocery store.

Even after all your preparation, the first trip to the store can be a little daunting. How do you know what to buy? Will your regular grocery store have everything you need?

Below is a comprehensive, master keto diet shopping list that covers everything you may need at the store.

How to Use This Keto Shopping List

The below food list encompasses many foods that fit within the keto diet — far more than you could ever purchase in a single trip. Before hitting the grocery store, here are a few things to keep in mind.

#1: Do Not Overbuy

Resist the temptation to fill up your shopping cart to maximum capacity. Many people do this on their first keto shopping trip, which causes produce to spoil, meat to go bad and the food budget to be blown.

If you want to stock up on emergency items, purchase frozen veggies (stir-fry combos are always a great option) and meat that freezes well.

#2: Focus on the Basics

When shopping for the keto diet for the first time, many people get caught up on specialty ingredients, rather than simply sticking to the basics.

Fill your shopping cart with:

  • Fresh or frozen veggies
  • Meat
  • Vegetables
  • Eggs
  • One to two dairy items.
  • A healthy cooking fat, like avocado oil or coconut oil
  • Fresh herbs or spices for added flavor.

That’s all you need.

Don’t get too caught up in purchasing keto snacks or products that include “low carb” or “keto” on the label. Oftentimes, products like keto granola, keto tortillas or keto noodles are often just clever marketing ploys — and may have a higher carb count than you think.

If you want a safe keto-friendly snack that won’t raise your blood sugar to unhealthy levels, try Perfect Keto Bars.

#3: Select Only Items You Need

Every item below fits within a healthy ketogenic diet. Highlight items or create a second list for your next grocery trip, saving the remaining items for another time. Each section is categorized by food group, making it easy to select items at your local store.

Finally, remember to consume foods according to your macro guidelines, with the majority of calories coming from fat, some from protein and very few from carbs. Just because a food is labeled as a “keto food” doesn’t mean it should make up the bulk of your calories. Berries, for instance, are listed below but should only be consumed in moderation.

Let’s jump in.

Meat Shopping List

When selecting meat, choose the highest quality you can reasonably afford. Choose grass-fed meat, wild-caught seafood, and pasture-raised pork, chicken and eggs whenever possible.

Shop by type of meat:

Red Meat

Focus on grass-fed and organic cuts whenever possible. For the highest-quality meat, see if you can find a local farmer or butcher in the area, so you know where your meat comes from. You can choose from:

  • Beef
  • Organ meats
  • Some deli meats
  • Pork
  • Others: Bison, Lamb or Goat

Beef

Meat to Avoid

Try to avoid highly processed meats, including charcuterie, hot dogs and even some bacon and sausages. Some lunch meat is fine (Applegate is a trusted brand), but double-check the label, avoiding deli meat that contains harmful additives such as carrageenan, sodium nitrate, BHA, BHT, natural flavor or aspartame (or other sugars).

Seafood Shopping List

seafood

  • Tuna*
  • Salmon
  • Catfish

  • Halibut
  • Mackerel
  • Mahi-mahi
  • Cod

  • Oysters*
  • Mussels
  • Crab (make sure it’s the real thing — not imitation)
  • Lobster
  • Scallops
  • Shrimp

*Canned is fine; look for a no-BPA can and choose canned seafood in olive oil, rather than water, for the added healthy fats.

Poultry Shopping List

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Poultry

  • Duck
  • Chicken (leg, thigh, wings, breasts, whole or ground)
  • Quail
  • Turkey (leg, breast, whole or ground)
  • Wild game
  • Cornish hen
  • Chicken broth
  • Turkey bacon
  • Turkey sausage
  • Eggs

Dairy Shopping List 

Like meat and seafood, always choose the highest-quality dairy you can afford. Select full-fat, organic, grass-fed products whenever possible.

Remember, dairy products — while they do contain healthy fats — shouldn’t make up the bulk of your calories. Limit yourself to one or two items per shopping trip.

Dairy

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Dairy

  • Full-fat Greek yogurt
  • Heavy creams (preferably raw)
  • Kefir
  • Sour cream
  • Mayonnaise
  • Butter (grass-fed)
  • Ghee
  • Heavy whipping cream

Cheeses

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Cheeses

  • Swiss
  • Feta
  • Cheddar
  • Brie
  • Monterrey jack
  • Mozzarella
  • Colby
  • Goat cheese
  • Blue cheese
  • Cottage cheese
  • Cream cheese
  • String cheese
  • Ricotta cheese

Dairy Products to Avoid

Avoid all low-fat or reduced fat products.

Avoid certain dairy products like milk (yes, even whole milk), evaporated or condensed milks and half-and-half. These three products are usually higher in carbs or contain added sugar.

Finally, avoid added fermented products (like kefir and yogurt) with added fruit or sugar.

Oils and Fats Shopping List

Fats make up the bulk of your calories on keto, but you will only need to pick up two to three items at the grocery store. Saturated fats like coconut oil and grass-fed butter are excellent options for cooking. Oils like extra virgin oil are best reserved for cool uses, like homemade salad dressings. Nuts and seeds can be reserved for snacks only. While they provide a healthy dose of fats, they are incredibly high in carbs, which can impede weight loss.

Enjoy these healthy fats and oils on keto:

  • Oils
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Other fats

Oils

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Oils

  • Coconut oil
  • Olive oil
  • Avocado oil
  • MCT oil

Nuts and Seeds

  • Pecans
  • Pistachios
  • Walnuts
  • Sesame seeds
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Flaxseeds
  • Chia seeds
  • Peanut butter
  • Almond butter

Other fats

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Other fats

  • Cocoa butter
  • Coconut butter
  • Bacon fat
  • Duck fat

Oils and Fats to Avoid

Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils found in margarine or fast food should be avoided. Avoid seed oils in general, such as grapeseed oil, corn oil, canola oil, peanut oil and soybean oil. Finally, avoid peanuts and nuts that are very high in carbohydrates.

Vegetable Shopping List

Vegetables should fill a substantial portion of your shopping cart. Vegetables, particularly leafy greens, contain very few net carbs per serving and are packed with vitamins and minerals. Fermented vegetables like kimchi and sauerkraut are also great items to include in your cart, as they contain healthy probiotics.

Remember: Vegetables come with an expiration date. To save on your budget and prevent food waste, try not to buy more fresh produce than you can eat in 5-7 days. If you live far away from a grocery store, stock up on frozen vegetables — which are just as nutrient dense as fresh.

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Vegetables

  • Leafy greens
  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Swiss chard
  • Bok choy
  • Romaine lettuce

Fermented Vegetables

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Fermented vegetables

  • Sauerkraut (no added sugars)
  • Kimchi
  • Natto
  • Pickles
  • Salsa (sugar free)

Vegetables to Avoid

Certain vegetables, while packed with micronutrients, simply contain too many carbohydrates to be included on the keto diet. Exlude starchy vegetables like white potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnips, carrots and corn. Even some forms of squash, like summer squash, are too high in carbohydrates.

Fruit Shopping List

Fruit should be consumed in moderation on the keto diet. Enjoy one handful of berries per day as a treat, and try to purchase organic whenever possible. Avocados are the exception, which are a high-fat, low carb fruit which can be consumed in abundance.

Like vegetables, frozen berries can be purchased to prolong the shelf life of your groceries.

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Fruits

  • Avocados
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Cherries
  • Cranberries
  • Mulberries

Fruit to Avoid

Most fruit should be avoided on keto, simply due to the high-sugar, high-carb content. Apples, bananas, mangos, watermelon, pears, oranges and other fruits should be avoided. Dried fruit and fruit juice are also off-limits.

Baking Supplies Shopping List

Alternative baking flours like almond flour and coconut flour make excellent pantry staples, and are the perfect low carb alternative to regular white flour. Use these and keto-friendly sweeteners, like stevia and swerve, to make low carb, keto-friendly desserts.

Replace your former pantry items with the products listed below. Remember, try to limit your keto treats, focusing on meat, veggies and eggs instead.

Baking Items

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Baking items

  • Coconut flour
  • Almond flour
  • Coconut flakes
  • Cocoa powder
  • Sea salt
  • Baking soda
  • Vanilla

Baking Staples to Avoid

Chances are you will need to clean out your pantry before starting the keto diet. White flour, wheat flour, whole wheat flour, cornstarch and corn flour are too high in carbs to be considered keto-friendly. Finally, some gluten-free flours should also be avoided due to the carb content, including cassava flour, tapioca flour and tapioca starch.

Sweeteners Shopping List

The sweeteners you can use on keto are narrowed down below:

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Sweeteners

  • Pure stevia powder
  • Pure stevia drops
  • Monk fruit
  • Mannitol

Sweeteners to Avoid

White sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar, sugar alcohols, honey and maple syrup should also be avoided.

Condiments, Spices and Herbs Shopping List

To add flavor to dishes, stock your fridge and pantry with condiments, spices and herbs. The best condiments are typically those made at home, but there are plenty of quality products out there that are keto-friendly and made from simple ingredients. Finally, purchase fresh herbs, spices and citrus like lemon and lime juice for added flavor.

Enjoy these items for added flavor in your keto recipes:

Condiments

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Condiments

  • Yellow mustard
  • Brown mustard
  • Soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • Sugar-free ketchup
  • Mayonnaise

Spices and Herbs

  • Cilantro
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Chili powder
  • Cumin
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper

Condiments, Spices and Herbs to Avoid

When buying condiments, check the label every single time. Plenty of brands include added sugar and harmful, unnecessary additives. When buying spices avoid spice blends, as they may contain added sugar.

Drinks and Liquids Shopping List

When it comes to beverages, water will always be your safest choice. There are plenty of other options, including dairy-free alternatives, coffee, tea and sparkling water.

With certain products, like kombucha and coconut water, make sure to double-check the label to ensure they are low in sugar and carbohydrates.

The Ultimate Keto Shopping List: The Only Keto Grocery List You’ll Ever Need - Drinks and liquids

  • Water
  • Some kombucha (make sure it’s low in sugar)
  • La Croix and other sparkling waters

  • Cashew milk (unsweetened)
  • Almond milk (unsweetened)

  1. Hello! I just would like to give a huge thumbs up for the great info you have here on this post. I will be coming back to your blog for more soon.

  2. I do not see smoked Gouda or provolone in the cheese category?
    These are favorites. Are they not allowed ?

  3. Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    I do not see smoked Gouda or provolone in the cheese category?
    These are favorites. Are they not allowed

  4. Hey Annmarie, red kidney beans and sweet potatoes are higher in carbs and therefore not considered part of a keto eating plan.

  5. Hi Julie, gouda and provolone are fine! 1 oz. of provolone has about 0.6 grams of carbs and 1 oz. of smoked gouda has about 1 gram of carb.

  6. Hey Chantelle, I would avoid chewing gum because most of them (even the sugar free kind) use sugar alcohols that are not keto approved like malitol and sorbitol. Although it is a small amount, it would still be advised to avoid them. Also, a lot of people feel that the action of chewing leads your brain to think you are consuming food and if no food is coming in, it may lead to your brain thinking you are hungrier than you actually are.

  7. Cindy, cashews are too high in carbs to be considered keto. Unsweetened cashew milk has a lot less carbs because it’s mainly water so it’s okay on keto

  8. Hi,
    I was advised not to eat any fruit or berries on the keto diet, because it increases the insulin of the high levels of fruit suger. I have keeping a strict keto diet with a maximum intake 30 g of carbohydrates a day.

    Is this wrong?

  9. Please advise on tomatoes and onions. Also I love root vegetables..turnip carrots beets…are none of thes considered Keto

  10. Hi there, a quick question – as an Asian, what if i occasionally over do on carbs and/or alcohol as it’s inevitable in Asian meals sometimes.

    And together with all the fats I already intake, would any adverse effect kick in for not staying in ketosis, besides gaining weight?

    Heaps of thx for your kind advice.

    Best
    Edward

  11. Hi MH, berries are pretty low impact carbs compared to other fruits. There’s no right and wrong, you might just test how you feel and your ketone levels and find your tolerance and what works for you.

  12. Hi
    I’ve been following the keto’s for 10days now…& I feel bloated! ???? 😕

    How long before I’ll start to see results?
