A vegetarian diet is followed by more than 18% of the world's population. If you're one of them, here are some low-carb plant-based food options.
Low-carbohydrate dairy products with no added sugar like milk, greek yoghurt, paneer/cottage cheese, buttermilk, butter and ghee are high in protein and fat.
Watermelon, strawberry, plums, cantaloupe, avocado, honeydew, peach, and pineapple are examples of low-carb fruits.
Low-carb and high-fiber vegetables include bell pepper, broccoli, mushrooms, asparagus, tomato, spinach, cucumber, cauliflower, and lettuce. They're perfect for low-carb diets.
Beans are a healthful food that contains some carbohydrates. It can be tough to incorporate them into a low-carb diet, but they are always an excellent choice for a 100g -150 g per day carbohydrates diet.
Nuts and Seeds
Nuts and seeds are abundant in protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but are low in carbs. As a result, a low carb diet consisting of chia seeds, hazelnuts, and walnuts is ideal.
A limited quantity of fat should be included in a low-carb, healthful diet. Virgin and cold-pressed olive oil, avocado oil, ghee, mustard oil, unsalted butter, virgin coconut oil, nuts, and seeds are all good sources of healthful fats.
