Add these keto-friendly spices to your pantry to make some amazing keto meals for you and your family.

Spices are a great way to improve any meal, but if you don’t have any on hand it can also make for a very disappointing meal too.

For the most part, single herb spices are keto-friendly and can be used in large amounts or even just a small amount. But, they should be a part of every keto kitchen cabinet/pantry essentials list.

Without further ado, let’s dig into the list :).

Are spice blends keto-friendly?

Depending on the blend, yes they can be very keto-friendly!

Even more so if you make them yourself and don’t rely on store-bought spice mixes.

Beware of anti-caking agents, corn starch, and other additives in pre-made seasoning mix that can add to hidden carbs.

  • Taco seasoning packets
  • Dry rub
  • Prepackaged blends from Walmart
  • Blackening seasoning

What to look for on nutrition labels?

When buying pre-made spice mixes be sure to look at the nutritional data and the carb counts on the packages.

There are many times when a seasoning might not seem like it would have carbs, but having things like cornstarch or an anti-caking agent can add unwanted carbs to the mix.

More often than not, marinades are the worst offenders when it comes to having extra total carbs due to having added sugars.

Where should you buy your seasonings and spices?

Amazon is a great place to buy seasoning and spices, but if you’re trying to kick the Amazon habit you can easily find most spices in your grocery store.

Or, if you want to get fancy, you can purchase from an online source like Thrive Market, Mountain Rose Herbs, or The Spice House

How to make your own seasonings?

You can mix and match different single herbs to create a variety of seasonings for your meals.

Most herbs have essentially zero carbs, so be careful what you add them to (like almond flour or other flours). As that is what adds any carbs you might not think about.

Place them in a jar or airtight container to store them and keep them out of the sunlight.

The best part is that you know exactly what’s in your spices if you make them yourself.
