Clean keto is a diet that revolves around whole foods with a focus on nutrition and food quality. Following a keto diet puts your body in a state of ketosis, wherein your body will be burning fat instead of carbohydrates.
High-carb and processed foods like pasta, breads, potatoes are not allowed as they will pull your body out of ketosis.
So is there a “dirty” keto diet? Sorta - this term refers to a keto diet that is more loose. While your body may be in a state of ketosis, you may not be getting all of the nutrients you need and leaving your body susceptible to illness and disease.
What kind of foods are on the clean keto diet? Think food you’d find on the outside perimeter of the grocery store. Lots of lean meats, fruits, and vegetables - as long as it’s not processed or starchy, you’re probably in the clear.
Some clean keto veggies are:
- Cauliflower (like our hummus!)
To make up for some noticeably absent veggies (RIP potatoes), these veggies can step in to take their place. Riced cauliflower and zucchini noodles make a normally carb-heavy meal lighter and keto-friendly.
Because our main ingredient is cauliflower, Naya hummuses are keto-friendly options that also taste great. Shop our selection of products to feel like you’re treating yourself!
