There are many keto diet recipes that use sugar, maple syrup, honey, or agave nectar as a sweetener. However, you should avoid these sweeteners while following the keto diet because they will cause an increase in blood sugar.
Replacement for Sugar
Instead of using sugar or sweeteners, you can use stevia extract to sweeten foods and drinks.
Stevia is a plant-based product that is 300 times sweeter than regular sugar without the negative effects on blood sugar.
Grains and starches
The first step in the keto diet is to remove grains and starches from your diet. These include bread, pasta, breakfast cereal, rice, oatmeal, potatoes, etc. You can enjoy these foods as part of a keto diet if you want, but it will be much easier to stick with the keto diet if you avoid them altogether. For example, on a typical day during the keto diet you’ll eat eggs for breakfast instead of toast and cereal; lunch might be a salad with some meat or avocado instead of sandwiches; dinner will be a stir-fry rather than noodles.
