When following the keto diet, some people may be afraid of consuming lots of meat, cheese, and eggs.

However, the nutritionist noted that there are many more options for those who are slimmer, as well as for vegans and vegetarians.

He said, “These foods are high in fat and protein, which are the backbone of the keto diet, but there are plant-based options for eaters whether they’re vegetarian or vegan.

“Plant-based options for ketosis include vegan full-fat dairy products (coconut yogurt, vegan butter, cashew cheese, vegan cream cheese), vegan proteins like soy products (tofu, soy milk, and tempeh), and nut butters like peanut, cashew, almond, and sunflower.
