Guide to a Successful Vegetarian Keto Diet

No meat? No problem. Because the keto diet is mainly made up of fats, you can be more creative about how you hit your protein macros. A successful vegetarian keto diet can be incredibly easy, depending on your flexibility.

While there are nutritional benefits associated with eating red meats and poultry in moderation, you can certainly still live a ketogenic lifestyle without them. In fact, looking at the bigger picture, the keto diet and vegetarian diet are more sustainable ways of dieting because they rely less on eating massive quantities of meat. Here’s what you can do:

1. Eggs (Ovo-Vegetarian)

Something like this green omelet is a perfect breakfast for a vegetarian keto diet!

2. Pile on some cheese
