Keto Grocery List #2: For the Pescatarians ($10.57 per day)

ketogenic grocery list low carb meals for pescatarians

Staying keto is relatively easy if you’re open to eating a lot of animal products.

It’s hard when you not only restrict carbs in your diet, but also fat- and protein-rich staples such as meat.

And if you’re pescatarian?

Even harder.

Luckily for pescatarians, there are a ton of great keto-friendly meals out there!

We’ve broken down the carb counts for a week’s worth of pescatarian meals below, and added in cost per item and per meal, so you can easily modulate this diet for your needs.

Use these lists as the starting point to set up your pantry for success.

We hope you enjoy…

THE KETO FIRE MEAL PLAN FOR PESCATARIANS

To add to our first article on keto-friendly meal plans for meat eaters, we’re ratcheting up the restrictions a notch. Pescatarians easily hit their protein and fat goals to better their life.

This meal plan is largely designed for preparing ahead of time in relatively quick cooking sessions. Most meals are easily prepared in 20-30 minutes and can be stored.

In order to keep an eye on costs (time and financial), we’ve made this plan fairly repetitive. This makes the best use of your time as you prepare one meal for re-use.

It’s also more cost-effective, since buying a ton of different types of fish and cheese gets pricey pretty quickly.

We assume that you already have basic spices and oils in your home. If you’d like to add things like MCT Oil to your meals, be sure to get some.

This meal plan comes out to $74, or $10.57 per day.

The most expensive meal is just $4 per serving, and the carbiest we go is 11.6 grams of carbs in a meal.

THE MEALS

All of these meals are relatively easy and quick. Basic instructions are next to each meal. If you don’t know how to cook green beans, you can always use Google. But really, just pan fry them in butter until you like their consistency – the butter will ensure you get enough fat, and also make everything taste delicious.
