This is a staple in my daily routine. I add it to my coffee and it makes for a super creamy and delicious energy boost.

Beef Jerky

Beef jerky is a fantastic keto-friendly snack option, especially when you’re on the go! Unfortunately, most of the beef jerky options sold in regular grocery stores and gas stations are made with questionable ingredients and tons of added fillers and sugar. Keto Carne Beef Jerky is made with simple ingredients, has 0 carbs/0 sugar, and tastes awesome! Follow the link and use the code “KILLINITKETO” for 10% off your order!

Keto Electrolytes

Electrolyte balance is one of the MOST critical, yet often overlooked, components of a successful and enjoyable ketogenic diet experience. Lower carb diets are diuretic in nature, meaning the kidneys shift from retaining water, and sodium, to flushing them. This excretion of excess fluid is normal but not completely harmless, as it also removes many of the electrolytes – or minerals – present in our bodies. These electrolytes are necessary to enable many of the body’s biological processes, including proper function of the heart, muscles, nerves, and even sleep. Perfect Keto’s Electrolytes provide a precise 4:2:1:1 ratio of sodium to potassium to calcium and magnesium to help support normal, healthy biological functions all delivered in portable, convenient, easy-to-swallow capsules.

Organic Unsweetened Ketchup

Ketchup is definitely one of the most popular condiments in the US. However, most people don’t realize that ordinary ketchup is full of chemicals and TONS of added sugar. Primal Kitchen created a delicious, keto-friendly alternative to traditional ketchup that is even tastier in my opinion. Click the link and use the code “KILLINITKETO” for 10% OFF!

Not Your Average Pork Rinds

Throw those questionable gas station pork rinds out the window and check out Bacon Heir’s Pork Clouds to experience the real, healthy version of a Chicharrón (fried pork skin). These are a perfect example of a keto alternative snack that I enjoy on a daily basis because they are so versatile. Enjoy them as a snack alone or with a yummy dip, crumble on top of your salad for a nice crunch, or make “Pork Rind Nachos” when you’re craving that comfort food..the possibilities are endless. Follow the link to check out the various flavors (I love them all) and use the code “KILLINITKETO” for 10% off your order!

Cheese Crisps

Cheese crisps are by far one of my favorite foods. They are the perfect keto alternative when you’re looking for something crunchy, salty, and extremely satisfying. Bunker Hill makes the BEST cheese crisps I have tasted thus far. They are made from high quality cheese and come in several flavors. My favorite flavors are Buffalo and Chili Lime but they are all sooo good.

Bone Broth

Bone broth is a staple in my diet! It’s jam packed with essential nutrients and an amazing source of collagen, also known as the “glue that holds your body together.” Bone broth provides a concentration of nutrients that help improve gut, skin, and joint health, immune function, sleep quality and much more. Homemade bone broth is the best but sometimes it’s nice to have a grab-n-go option. Kettle & Fire make their broth from the highest quality ingredients like 100% organic vegetables and grass-fed, organic and pasture-raised cattle. Plus, it’s delicious!

Keto Collagen Protein Powder

I use this stuff in everything, literally! The chocolate flavor is amazing in shakes and desserts and the unflavored version is perfect for thickening sauces, soups, and homemade dressings. The possibilities are endless and the health benefits that collagen provides for your body are amazing. Use the code “killinitketo” for $10 off!

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

This pizza crust is an amazing alternative to traditional, carb-heavy pizza dough. I love making my own keto pizza but sometimes you just want someone else to do it for you! This crust is super yummy, completely keto-friendly, gluten/grain free and made with healthy, simple ingredients. Store in the freezer for a quick pizza whenever the urge hits.

Keto Panko Bread Crumbs

Struggling to find a breadcrumb alternative? Not anymore! These flaky, crispy, panko “bread crumbs” are the perfect keto alternative. With 0 carbs, they can be used to substitute bread crumbs in any recipe. Perfect for making chicken nuggets or fish sticks, used as a binder in meatloaf or dough recipes and so much more.

Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce & Ketchup

US Wellness Meats

Since 2000, the family farms of US Wellness Meats have been producing the highest quality grass-fed and pasture-raised meats and other products. Their meat is tender and tasty, but it doesn’t have all the excess junk of animals fed with grain in confinement. It’s packed with nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin E, and CLA – and free of all the pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics that are found in most grain-fed beef. They deliver right to your front door too.

Syrup (Sugar-Free)

Keto waffles and pancakes are my favorite weekend brunch recipes. I love developing new versions and playing around with different keto-friendly ingredients. However, the one thing that I’ve missed is definitely a good quality, sugar-free syrup to go along with them. ChocZero syrups are the best alternative to regular maple syrup that I’ve found. They’re thick, rich, and made with monk fruit extract instead of sugar alcohols. These syrups also don’t have a laundry list of chemically ingredients like many of the other sugar-free syrups out there. Check out their delicious flavors and use the code KILLINITKETO for a 10% discount.

Healthy Oils & Nut Butters

These grab-n-go, individually packed nut butters and healthy oils are a life saver when I’m traveling or just looking for a satisfying, delicious snack. They are all non-GMO, Paleo and keto-friendly as well as vegan/vegetarian and peanut-free! This company is truly dedicated to making high quality, healthy options for everyone. Follow the link or use the code “killinitketo” for a 20% discount.

Baking Mixes

When I was growing up, I used to make a boxed brownie or cake mix almost every week! When I started my keto lifestyle and became aware of the actual ingredients in these boxed mixes, I was so disappointed. Not only are they overflowing with sugar and carbs, but they also contain many unhealthy fillers, additives, preservatives and so many other unnecessary ingredients. Good Dee’s baking mixes are an incredible alternative when you’re looking for a quick and easy keto-friendly brownie, muffin, cookie or cake mix. Follow the link or use the code “KILLINITKETO15” for a 15% discount and check out the delicious varieties available!

Keto Bars

I’m always getting questions regarding protein bars and which ones are okay for a ketogenic lifestyle. Unfortunately, most of the bars out there are packed with tons of carbs, unhealthy fillers and additives, and frankly just don’t taste that great. These keto bars are a great alternative and one of the few that I recommend. They’re extremely low in total carbs (only 2 grams per bar) and have no fillers, preservatives or “bulking” agents. These bars are perfect grab-n-go snacks and small enough to satisfy a sweet tooth perfectly without adding a ton of calories or extra junk to your diet. Check them out and use the code “killinitketo” for 10% off.

Miracle Noodles & Rice

Miracle Noodles and Rice are a great alternative when you’re looking for a keto-friendly option to replace traditional pasta or rice. I use them in a variety of recipes and they have never kicked me out of ketosis! Made from the Konjac plant, Miracle Noodle and Miracle Rice are 97% water and 3% soluble fiber – called glucomannan. They’re super filling and have very minimal calories/carbs due to the large water content. Rinse well before cooking! Use the code “KILLINITKETO” at checkout for 10% OFF!

Ghee

I’ve recently switched to using ghee in a lot of my cooking and in my morning coffee instead of butter. It has a very high smoke point, super creamy and packed with nutrients. KetoGeek makes an amazing, high-quality ghee that is delicious! It’s made in small batches from 100% organic, grass-fed and pasture raised cows and has a nutty flavor that I love. Try it out for yourself and use the code “killinitketo” at checkout for a 20% discount.

Keto Fat Packs

These “Fat Packs” are delicious and extremely versatile. I use them to make keto ice cream, milkshakes and other keto desserts or just add a few spoonfuls to my morning coffee sometimes. They’re super tasty and an easy snack if you’re on the go. Cave Fat Packs only have 3 ingredients: organic coconut milk powder, organic stevia and salt. Follow the link and use the code “killinitketo” at checkout for a 10% discount!

Mayonnaise

The best mayo I’ve ever had. Seriously, this stuff is AMAZING! It’s made with 100% avocado oil and the flavors are out of this world. The classic mayo is delicious on its own but the Chipotle Lime and Garlic Aioli are on a whole other level! Click the link and use the code “KILLINITKETO” for 10% OFF at checkout!

Beef Sticks

Beef sticks are a fantastic on-the-go keto snack but sometimes it’s hard to find a beef stick that isn’t filled with a ton of unnecessary ingredients. Tomer Kosher makes beef sticks that are made with 100% chuck beef, no artificial flavors or fillers, and are 100% kosher. Try out their variety pack to see what flavor you like best and use the code “KILLINITKETO” for 30% off at checkout!

Energy Pods

Energy pods are a great alternative when you’re craving fudge, icing or just looking for an occasional sweet treat. These are made with grass-fed ghee, locally sourced organic cocoa from California, premier dutch chocolate and a few other keto-friendly yummy ingredients. The chocolate pod reminds me of Duncan Hines chocolate frosting – so good! Click the image or enter “killinitketo” at checkout for 20% off.

Avocado Oil

This is my go-to oil for cooking. Unlike some other avocado oil’s on the market, this one is cold-pressed and centrifuge extracted so it can withstand high heat cooking without fear of oxidizing. It’s great for broiling, sautéing, baking, barbecuing or stir-frying. It has a naturally buttery, slightly nutty taste which makes it yummy on anything! Use the code “killinitketo” for 10% off!

Greens Powder

I’m a strong believer in getting the majority of your vitamins and minerals from whole foods sources. However, with the processing and soil-deficiencies we are facing these days, many of the nutrients are lost in even the freshest vegetables and other whole foods before they even get to our plate. I’m also not a proponent of multivitamins as I feel the majority of the ones on the market are a waste of money. Enter: Greens Powder. I’ve tried tons of greens powders in the past and they all made me gag. I can honestly say that this is the first one that I actually enjoy drinking! If you’re interested in trying it out, follow the link and enter “killinitketo” for $10 off.

Keto Granola

Granola, cereal and cookies are definitely some of the top foods I missed after adopting a keto lifestyle. I used to have a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats for dessert almost every night as a kid (basically pure sugar in a bowl). So, when I came across the Keto Baking Co and their homemade keto cookie granola, you know I had to test it out…and it did not disappoint! Their Snickerdoodle and PB&J granolas are freaking DELICIOUS!! Yes, it deserves all caps because they are one of the best keto treats I have ever had. Check them out and use the code “killinitketo” for a 10% discount.

Ultima Replenisher

Electrolytes are a HUGE part of determining how you feel throughout the day, especially if you are following a low-carb, keto lifestyle. Ultima is one of my favorite electrolyte powders because it has super clean ingredients, zero calories, zero sugar, and made with plant-based colors & flavors. Plus, all the flavors are delicious! Try out the sample pack to find your favorite (mine are cherry pomegranate and raspberry). Follow the link and enter the promo code “ULTIMA15” for 15% off your order!

Keto Cookies

These are great for an occasional keto-friendly treat. Peanut butter is my favorite flavor but the chocolate chip, snickerdoodle and double chocolate are bomb as well. I keep mine in the freezer for when I’m craving a little cookie action. Follow the link and use the code “KILLINITKETO” for 10% OFF.

Legendary Nut Butters

I’m a sucker for nut butters and Legendary Foods has come up with some amazing flavored nut butters that are out of this world! They’re keto-friendly, delicious and will satisfy any craving. My favorite is the Peanut Butter Cup flavor because it tastes exactly like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, minus the sugar! Some other flavors include Blueberry Cinnamon Bun, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Apple Pie and Pecan Pie. Check them out and use the code “killinitketo” for a 10% discount on all products.

Matcha Latte

Matcha is my go-to afternoon pick-me-up. This product contains the highest possible grade of organic ceremonial matcha artisanally grown in Japan. Its antioxidant profile, along with its moderate caffeine level, give you a sustained boost of energy and focus, without the crash. Added bonus: it’s made with MCT powder! I mix it with a cup of warm water or drink it cold – it’s great either way. Try it out and use the code “killinitketo” for $10 off.

Croutons

I love eating big salads and sometimes I crave that extra crunch that’s hard to get from anything other than croutons. Obviously traditional croutons are not keto but these right here are an amazing alternative. They’re gluten-free, grain-free and made with superfoods like almonds, coconut, flaxseeds, and chia seeds. Follow the link and enter the code KILLINITKETO10 for 10% off at checkout.

Nut Butter Packs

I’m a huge fan of having accessible, on-the-go keto-friendly options so that I never fall into the trap of being unprepared. Nut butters are a great way to get a healthy dose of fat and minimal carbs whether it’s for a pre-workout boost, quick snack or nighttime treat. These individual squeeze pouches are also packed with high quality Collagen protein to help support your joints, skin, bones, etc. Check out these tasty nut butters and use the code “killinitketo” for 10% off.

Keto Hot Cocoa & Mushroom Elixirs

If you’re looking for an amazing alternative to coffee or something that will give you an even better boost, you definitely should try out the Four Sigmatic superfood mushroom blends.

Keto Cappuccino & Shakes

Sometimes it’s nice to have an on-the-go version of a keto coffee or shake that I can just throw in my bag for those hectic days. The Keto Cappuccino, Vanilla Cake Batter, and Dutch Chocolate flavors are super tasty and a great option if you’re on the go. Follow the link to try out some free samples.

Steviva

Making keto-friendly baked goods and desserts is something I love to experiment with. I believe that you can transform ANY sugary dessert into a keto treat by just swapping out a few ingredients. I love using Steviva products when I’m baking because they are non-GMO, 100% organic, pesticide free, petrochemical free and have an extensive system in place for ensuring the highest possible standards for quality control. The products I love include SteviaSweet, Steviva Blend, Erysweet and Monksweet. Use the code “killinitketo” for 10% off!

Wraps

These wraps are a great option for when you have an occasional craving for a quesadilla, breakfast burrito or just a traditional turkey lunch wrap. They are made with healthy, grain/gluten-free ingredients and store very well in the freezer. I love using them for a quick, individual pizza or cutting them into small triangles and baking until crisp to use as pita chips. Use the code “KILLINITKETO10” for a 10% discount.

Zevia – Stevia Sweetened “Soda”

Great alternative when you’re craving a soda and looking to curb a sweet tooth. Zevia has zero calories, zero sugar, and no artificial sweeteners. The cream soda and black cherry are my favorite flavors. Follow the link to learn more and try a sample pack of various flavors.
