Having once been a newbie on keto myself, I know just how overwhelming starting keto and knowing what foods to eat or avoid is. And as I have been asked numerous times for a keto grocery list, I created this basics of keto grocery list for anyone needing a printable to take on your grocery shopping trips to avoid mistakes and take out the guesswork.
