There are several staple food items for a keto diet that you ought to have on hand. A few of these include:
Eggs: Can be used in quiches, omelets, low-carb pizza crust, hard-boiled as a snack, and many more. If you like eggs, you have a great chance of success on Keto diet.
Spinach and romaine: Have plenty of green veggies on hand for a quick salad when hunger pangs hit.
