A Simple Keto Food Pyramid Demonstration.

Seafood

Fish is an extremely keto-friendly food and protein source. Salmon and other fish like it are rich in potassium, selenium, and B vitamins, but are still virtually carb-free. Some fish contain a lot of carbs, like several types of shellfish, but some contain no carbs at all like shrimp and crabs.

Not only can you consume these veggies cooked or raw, but you can also use them to replace some of your favorite higher-carb foods like pastas. 

Cheese

Cheese is nutritious and delicious; there are hundreds upon hundreds of different types of cheese available on the market and all of them are high in fat and very low in carbs, making them perfect for the keto diet.
