Since the farmers’ markets are full of fresh summer vegetables, we wanted to share our favorite vegetable recipes. Veggies are important sources of fiber and minerals, and if you’re following a ketogenic diet for diabetes reversal or other reasons, they can be great vehicles for fat and salt.

Here are some of our favorite low-carb vegetables to get on your next grocery shopping trip:

  • Asparagus
  • Avocado
  • Berries (strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, blackberry)
  • Beans (green, yellow, wax)
  • Bok choy
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Eggplant
  • Garlic
  • Green beans
  • Greens (mustard, collard)
  • Kale
  • Lemons and limes
  • Lettuce (Romaine, arugula, spring mix, iceberg, endive, escarole)
  • Mushrooms
  • Onions
  • Peppers (green, red, orange/yellow)
  • Snow peas
  • Spaghetti squash
  • Tomatoes
  • Zucchini/summer squash

Pro tip: Fresh and frozen vegetables are equally healthy, so pick some of these up from the freezer aisle so you’ll always have veggie options on hand.

Below are a few of our favorite low-carb vegetable recipes that the whole family will enjoy.

*Because nutritional ketosis can lead to rapid decreases in blood sugar and blood pressure, Virta strongly recommends getting medical supervision before making any dietary changes if you are on medications for blood sugar or blood pressure. A physician can help you safely reduce your medications so that they don’t drive your blood sugar or blood pressure too low. Hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) and hypotensive (low blood pressure) episodes can be very dangerous.
