Broccoli, Spinach, Kale and other low carb leafy green vegetables are also keto vegetarian protein sources.

These can be enjoyed in your favourite low carb recipe. I often keep it simple and enjoy a plate full of spinach topped with a homemade salad dressing.

5. Protein Powder

If you feel that you won’t consume sufficient protein in a day from natural keto vegetarian protein sources, then try and find the lowest carb protein powder to supplement.

You could add protein powder to a smoothie, low carb yoghurt or just shake it with a portion of almond milk.

So, as you can tell – there are plenty of low carb keto vegetarian protein sources that are not only nutritious, but delicious too.
