23 Mediterranean Recipes That Are on the Keto Diet

When it comes to eating healthy, it seems like everyone is raving about two diets. On one hand, you have the ketogenic (also known as the keto) diet: a fairly strict regime that is all about burning fat and losing weight by following a high-fat, low-protein, and low-carb diet. On the flip side, you have the Mediterranean Diet, which is about filling your plate with healthy whole grains, vegetables, beans, low-fat milk, nuts, fish, lean red meat, and olive oil (it's hardly a diet). The two diet plans may sound completely incompatible, but we can prove that this is not the case with these 23 Mediterranean low-carb and full-flavored keto recipes.

Healthy fats: To meet your keto fat needs, instead of butter you should use Mediterranean staples like olive oil, seeds, and nuts.
Seafood: Fish and seafood are a staple of the Mediterranean diet and a good source of protein and fat.
Vegetables: Focus on high-fiber, nutrient-dense vegetables like leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables (you know, like Brussels sprouts and broccoli).
Lean Meats: While the Mediterranean diet is typically low in red meat, you should compromise on keto by choosing lean, low-fat varieties.
Dairy Products: Eat dairy products in moderation and choose options like feta cheese, Greek yogurt, and parmesan.
