Do you allow sugar, grains or legumes in your keto-friendly meals?

Given the very low carbohydrate nature of a ketogenic diet, legumes and grains don’t easily fit within the framework. All of our keto-friendly meals center around non-starchy veggies, healthy fats & quality proteins. While we don’t sweat a little added sugar here or there, our keto-friendly meals & snacks will never have more than a very small amount. 

Here at Snap, we’re not big fans of non-caloric sweeteners, even the natural ones (we’re looking at you Stevia, Erythritol, etc), so we prefer to use very small amounts of the real stuff (coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup). Especially when you’re first starting a keto diet, it’s important to let your palate adjust and not simply replace the sweet taste of sugar with the sweet taste of non-caloric sweeteners, especially since they’re quite processed and can raise blood sugar.
