Is Cabbage Keto Friendly?

Cabbage is a nutrient dense vegetable that is packed with Vitamin C and tons of fiber! It is also keto friendly with just 2 net carbs per serving.

This recipe, however, has a bit more carbs than that, so while it can fit into your keto diet, you want to be sure and not overdo it. This recipe makes 8 servings and each serving has 6 net carbs.

To clarify, the prep time on this recipe is just 20 minutes, but the recipe does need to bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Perfect doesn’t happen instantly, but patience pays off!

What Other Veggies Can You Eat on Keto?

There is some confusion as to what veggies are good to eat on keto, but don’t worry friends. There are a lot of vegetables that you can eat while sticking to your keto diet.

The following list includes just some of the healthy vegetables that you can incorporate into your eating plan to ensure that you are getting lots of vitamins, nutrients and fiber.

  • Lettuce
  • Asparagus
  • Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Zucchini
  • Cauliflower
  • Broccoli

Tips for Making Keto Cabbage Au Gratin

Check Your Bacon for Sneaky Carbs

With this recipe, you use bacon as a garnish to this recipe. While it may not seem like much, you still need to be mindful of this sneaky carb possibility.

As always, when preparing a keto recipe that includes bacon, be sure to double check the sugar/carb count in your bacon. You’d be surprised by how many carbs you sometimes find in bacon.

I happen to raise my own pigs so I don't have that problem!

Eat it Up

You can store these leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days, but I don’t recommend eating them after that. The texture will just be all wrong.

Use Fresh Cabbage

I always try to use produce that is as fresh as possible and this recipe is no different. This recipe turns out much better when your cabbage is fresh. You can shop your local grocery store produce department or better yet, grow your own!

Keep in mind next gardening season that cabbage is a great vegetable to grow in your own garden.
