If you’re on the Keto diet you will need to create a Keto shopping list. 

Going shopping can be stressful all on its own, and starting a new diet or way of eating can add to that stress. Before you write your keto diet shopping list clean your cabinets out, and make a list of what you need. 

This is the first step to getting off on the right foot with keto. Having a plan in place, having the right foods and tools in your house and knowing what you need is so important! 

That’s how you’re going to be successful!

I wish I would have had this list the first few times I went shopping while changing my eating habits to follow a keto lifestyle. I hope this helps make the process less stressful.

Keto grocery List: What You Need

What Meat Can I Eat on Keto?

Keto Beef

This seems like it would be the easiest section as any meat should be good, right? Well, kind of, but not all meats are created equal. Most meats are good, just make sure you get the best quality you can afford. This is not the area you want to skimp on. Grass-fed and organic are best.

Ground Beef (the fatter the better)
Prime Rib
Roast Beef

Keto Pork

Pork Loin
Pork Chops
Pork Rinds
Lamb and Bison

Keto Poultry

Cornish Hens

Keto and Dairy

Keto and dairy can be wonderful. I love to add dairy products to my keto dishes. It add’s healthy fats but also add’s flavor and taste to every meal. Here is a list of the best Keto dairy foods. 

Keto Dairy

Like with meats, make sure you pick the highest quality grass fed and full fat options.

Sour cream
Greek Yogurt
Heavy Cream
Butter (grass-fed)

Is Olive Oil Keto?

When I first started the Keto diet I asked the question, “Is olive oil Keto?”. That’s because I do love olive oil. It’s my favourite oil option and so being able to use this as my staple oil in Keto meals is fantastic. 

Here is a list of the best oils to use on the Keto diet. 

Keto Oils

Coconut oil
Avocado oil
Olive oil
MCT oil (make sure you are getting a good quality MCT)

Keto Veggies

Veggies are great! Avoid the “bacon, bacon, bacon” mindset many keto-ers have. Adding vegetables to your meals will help keep you full for longer periods of time and will add more nutrients. Stay away from high starch veggies and you will be golden.

Green leafy veggies
Brussel Sprouts
Green Beans

Keto Fruits

Dried fruits and most fruits are off limits with keto because of the high sugar content and high carbs.


Keto Sweeteners

You’re giving up sugar, so you’ll definitely want to incorporate some sugar substitutes into your diet. But, you have to be careful because some are highly processed, while others still have a high carb count. For example, coconut sugar is a tasty option, but it’s high in fructose.

A big concern with this is blood sugar control. While honey is a better choice than actual sugar, it’s still too high in carbs and calories to use on a regular basis if you’re following a keto diet.

Monk fruit
Stevia (powder or drops)

Keto Condiments

Condiments and spices are essential to getting the tastes you want. Some condiments will even add fat to your meals. Check the labels of the spices and condiments there are lots of brands that add sugar. Make sure you are getting the no sugar added variety to keep it keto.

Yellow and Brown mustard
Sugar free ketchup
Hot sauce
Low carb salsa
Worcheshire sauce
Lemon and lime juice
Parsley (for garnish)
Garlic (fresh or powdered)
Onion Powder
Chili powder
Salt and Pepper
