Low carb food refers to any type of food that is relatively low in carbohydrates. A low carb diet typically restricts the intake of carbohydrates, such as sugars and starchy foods, and focuses on consuming foods that are rich in protein, healthy fats, and non-starchy vegetables. Some common examples of low carb foods include:

  • Lean meats like chicken, turkey, beef, and fish.
  • Eggs.
  • Leafy greens and non-starchy vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli, and cauliflower.
  • Nuts and seeds.
  • Healthy fats such as olive oil, avocados, and coconut oil.
  • Low carb fruits like berries.
  • Dairy products like cheese, yogurt, and butter (in moderation).
  • Legumes like chickpeas and lentils (in moderation).

It’s important to note that the specific definition of “low carb” may vary depending on individual dietary needs and health goals. Consulting with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian can help determine the most suitable low carb approach for your specific needs.

Here’s a simple recipe for keto scones that you can enjoy for breakfast:


  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated erythritol (or any keto-approved sweetener)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the cold butter to the dry ingredients and use a pastry cutter or your hands to cut it in until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
  6. Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and shape it into a round disk, about 1 inch thick.
  7. Cut the disk into 8 equal wedges. Alternatively, you can use a cookie cutter to make scones of your desired shape.
  8. Transfer the scones to the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between them.
  9. Bake for 18-22 minutes, or until the scones are golden brown on top.
  10. Allow the scones to cool for a few minutes before serving.

Enjoy your homemade keto scones for a delicious and low-carb breakfast!
