There are a lot of Keto products available to the American and Canadian market, but being based in Sydney, I don’t always have the same options. Apart from the usual meats, eggs, deli and veggies, I thought it would be a good idea to help out my fellow Aussie Ketoers find keto-friendly food that would be easy to find in Coles, Woolies, IGA and Aldi. Here is part 1 of what I think would be a long list:
- Baker’s Life 85% Lower Carb Bread (only found in Aldi) – 5g of TOTAL carbs for two slices. Tastes like bread, not cardboard. 13g of fat, and higher protein at 24g. 248 calories, if you can fit it in your macros and calories, I say go for it.
- Slendier Kojac pasta (spaghetti, fettucini, rice, noodles and lasagna variants) – These pasta substitutes have 10 calories per 100g, and can be found in Woolies, Coles and IGA. Zero fat, zero protein, 6g of TOTAL carbs. Not really great on macros, but much better than real pasta. And if you are craving pasta or rice, this is an option.
- No Sugar Dark Chocolate by WellNaturally – I’ve seen these in Coles and Woolies, and is probably one of the best chocolate options I’ve had. It is sweetened with Stevia and Erythritol, it’s really good and comes in a variety of flavours, my personal favourite being Acai. Per 13g of chocolate, it has 59 calories, 5.3g of fat, 1.4g of carb and zero protein.
- Peter’s No Sugar Added Ice Cream (Vanilla and Salted Caramel Variant) – Can be found in both Woolies and Coles. Per 50g gives you 61 calories, 1g fat, 3g protein and 4g carbs. This actually tastes like ice cream. It has less carbs than the more famous Halo Top, and is half the price too.
