Surprise! 35 Keto Ingredients You Can Totally Grill


Can I grill this? It’s a question we ask ourselves in the grocery store time after time, and when you’re eating a low-carb diet, with its emphasis on whole foods and simple ingredients, the answer is almost always yes.

You don’t need us to tell you to grill steaks and chops, and we don’t want you to stop. But while you’ve got the coals fired up, why not try some of these other unusual and awesome very low-carb ingredients? From avocado to lamb shanks, we’ve got you covered:
