What Are Some High Fiber Keto Foods?

There are many nutrients you need to focus on while you are eating a ketogenic diet, and one of them is fiber. You might not have paid much attention to your fiber intake before, but it is really important to eat plenty of high fiber keto foods.

Without bread, grains, and legumes, you don’t have a lot of sources for fiber, which helps keep you regular. Here are some ways to get more fiber while on the keto diet.

Eat Your Greens

This is one of the most popular ways to get your fiber when you are on the keto diet. If you aren’t getting enough fiber due to eliminating beans, legumes, and whole grains, then vegetables are your best option. Many green veggies have an ample amount of fiber, especially your dark, leafy greens. These are more nutrient-dense in general than other lettuce, like iceberg, so try to eat spinach or kale before iceberg and other lighter lettuces.

Other veggies with a good amount of fiber include brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage.

Not a big veggie fan? Try cooking them down and pureeing them. “Hide” them in your burgers, meatloaf or casseroles.

Try Avocado

If you like avocado and can get it fresh in your area, definitely pick some up. Avocados are one of the best things you can eat while on keto. It is high in healthy fats, easy to add to any meal, contains potassium, and has a lot of fiber. A medium avocado is about 13 total carbs, but since that amount has 10 grams of fiber, it makes it only 3 net carbs. This is hard to beat with other veggies.

Don’t Forget About Flaxseeds

While many nuts and seeds have a small amount of fiber, none of them have as much as flaxseeds. Most of the carbohydrates in flaxseeds are not usable, so a serving is often considered no carbs or very little. However, for every tablespoon of ground flaxseeds, you are getting 2 grams of fiber. It might not seem like much, but it is easy to add to your low-carb smoothies, salads, and even soup if you make a keto-friendly version, making this a great option.

Fruit Can Be Your Fiber Friend

If you can fit it into your daily carb allotment, coconut meat has almost as much fiber as avocados. Don’t forget about berries as well. You can’t have many but strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries, and blackberries can add a little fiber too.

Summary

In the end, every little bit counts!! These high fiber keto foods are staples to be eating regularly to well….keep you regular!
