Let’s face it; getting started on any diet is not always easy. However, one diet that people often get overwhelmed by is the keto diet. This low-carb, high-fat diet is one of the most popular choices among dieters and people looking to change their lifestyle, like myself. Picking out the right foods can be difficult for beginners, so I decided to share some brands that make harder choices a little easier.

Sola is a brand that makes low carb foods for people on the keto diet and people who have to watch carbs because of diabetes issues. Sola provides products with easy to follow macros, and most of these products are gluten-free. You can find these products at some grocery stores and shopping online.

One product that I recently tried is the different flavors of granola. This granola not only tastes amazing, but it is good for you and can curb the sugar cravings. Another good thing about this sweet treat is that you will stay in ketosis if you follow the serving sizes. There are several flavors to choose from, or you can try them all as I did. Either way, you will love them and the health benefits they provide.

A popular product that Sola has is their bread. There are several to choose from depending on what you prefer. One thing that people may not like about the bread is that the slices are small, but they are delicious no matter the size. I have also tried all the kinds of bread they have, and I am always stocked up. Even though the bread is not gluten-free, it is still keto-friendly.

Bolthouse Farms

This is a brand I was surprised to find keto products with. Bolthouse Farms usually makes protein and health drinks high in carbs and sugar, so it was surprising to see that they have keto drinks available now. This protein keto drink that I found at a local grocery store is the opposite of what you usually find on the shelves.

This keto-friendly and delicious drink comes in two flavors, coconut, and dark chocolate, and contains MCT oil. The ingredients in this drink are just what keto lovers look for, and the taste is better than you might expect. The label of this amazing drink has all the information needed for a keto beginner and can help track your macros.

This has become my morning go-to drink and the perfect breakfast when I am in a hurry and on the go. This drink is sweetened with stevia and only contains 1 gram of sugar. With only 3 grams of net carbs per bottle, this is definitely a product to add to your daily routine as well. If you are getting started on keto, look for this brand in your local grocery stores.

Quest is a popular brand for people on the keto diet. They have a variety of products that fit everyone’s low carb needs. Macros are available on each package, and it makes it easy to keep track of for beginners. This is another product I found in my local grocery store, so it is available at most locations.

From cookies to protein chips, this brand has your snack needs covered. The chips come in two flavors, nacho cheese and ranch, which are popular choices for many people. The cookies that offer have various flavors, so there is something for everyone, and beginners have many options. These products are great and keto-friendly. Remember, follow serving sizes to ensure that you stay in ketosis.

I have tried both flavors of the chips, and they are great. I have tried several of the cookies and have no complaints so far. I wanted to see where these products could be found, and I was surprised to see that you can find some of these at convenient stores. This made me happy because now there are snacks for keto lovers at most stops when traveling and locally.

Skinny Girl

Everyone who has been on a low-carb and keto diet has heard of Skinny Girl. This brand makes products ranging from salad dressing to low carb wine. As one of my favorite products, I can say that this brand has it all for keto dieters. If you are a beginner, you will be pleased and relieved that you can find this brand nearly everywhere.

Typically, people on keto may not look at products that say fat-free. When it comes to salad dressing, this is my choice when I compare it to other options. Skinny Girl has something for everyone, even wine for those who can’t go without it but don’t want the guilt. You cannot go wrong with these products if you check the nutrition facts and follow serving sizes.

I use this brand often, and I have never had a product I did not like. I am careful about which products I use because some may be low-carb but not necessarily keto. Even though it is a safe option, always check the nutrition facts before purchasing products from this brand.


If you are a beginner on the keto diet, you may feel overwhelmed and frustrated when finding the right foods and brands. Always remember that you should follow serving sizes to keep your macros right and check nutrition facts. These brands are a good start for beginners, and I have talked to many people who have had success. Keto is more than a diet; it is a lifestyle change.
