1. A handy pressure cooker

Chefman 9-In-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker

Since the keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet, you’ll be eating a lot of meat. One of the easiest and quickest ways to cook meat is to use a pressure cooker. This Chefman Pressure Cooker prepared dishes up to 70% faster so you spend less time in the kitchen. It’s also great for making keto-approved soup and homemade yogurt!

2. Pressure cooker accessories

As amazing as a pressure cooker is, some pressure cooker accessories can make creating keto meals even easier. And if the meals are easy to make, you’re more likely to stay on track!

Cruciferous veggies like kale, broccoli, and cauliflower are especially low-carb. A pressure cooker steamer is easily to use and keeps your veggies away from the boiling water. Eggs are also a very versatile keto-approved food, and this pressure cooker egg rack holds up to 9 eggs! And of course, ketogenic diet staples – meat and poultry! This pressure cooker roast rack elevates food for an even cook, and grease and fat easily drain away from the food while cooking.

3. Keto egg-ssentials

As we mentioned, meat is a keto diet staple, but so are eggs! But we have to admit, eating eggs everyday can get a bit boring sometimes. We love this Microwave Eggs ‘N Muffin Breakfast Pan because you can literally whip up breakfast in minutes! Keep things interesting by wrapping the egg in your favourite sliced deli meat instead of an english muffin, top with some keto ketchup, and you’ve got a delicious breakfast!

4. Meal prep containers

Half the battle of sticking to the keto diet is meal planning. Since most keto approved foods take time to cook, preparing meals and snacks in advance will definitely help keep you on track towards your goal. These Clip It containers are made of borosilicate glass which means they’re freezer, microwave, and dishwasher safe, and will not absorb odours or flavours.

5. Storage containers

Easy Lock Containers

Just because you’re on the keto diet doesn’t mean you can’t have great snacks! Beef jerky, cold cuts, and nuts are all great snacks. Make sure you’re keeping them at their freshest with an airtight container like these ones.

6. Your shakes’ new best friend

Juiceman Express Blender and Juicer

If you’ve perused the keto diet aisles of your local grocery store lately, you’ve probably noticed a ton of keto friendly protein shakes, powders, supplements, and more. Sometimes these powders don’t have the smoothest textures, but it’s nothing a quick blend shouldn’t be able to fix. A great blender will make you look forward to those protein shakes!

7. Veggie noodles every day

Spiralizers make it so easy to replace carbs with vegetables. Everything from zucchini, carrots or cucumbers to apples and sweet potatoes will make achieving your wellness goals even easier. We love this recipe for Zucchini Bolognese – to make it more keto-friendly, just swap the rice for extra zucchini and consider swapping in chicken or turkey for ground beef.
