It’s New Year’s Resolution time again, which (for a lot of us) means setting or recommitting to healthy eating goals. Whether you are just starting a ketogenic diet, or looking to add some variety and seasonal veggies to your meals, Whole Foods Market has got you covered! I know you guys are aware that a variety of keto-friendly foods and ingredients (scroll to the bottom of this post to check out what I buy most often), but during the month of January, participating WFM locations in the North Atlantic, Northeast, and South Regions will also feature vegan keto-friendly dishes in the prepared foods section!
One of the challenges you guys mention to me most often, and one that I also face myself, is being able to find quick meal options when you’re on the go. So, I’m sure you can imagine how excited I was to receive a call from my friends at WFM, asking if I would join forces to create some plant-based, keto-friendly options for the hot food bar.
The recipes all feature nutrient-dense, seasonal vegetables, bright flavors and plenty of fats from sources like walnuts, pecans and pumpkin seeds. I had such a blast testing out recipes in-store and hanging out with the prepared foods team members and I can’t wait for all of you to taste the delicious results!

This is fantastic except I live in Canada and Florida (where I will be tomorrow) isn’t included! Also, I am surprised you’ve listed Chao, unless Chao in the US is different than Chao in Canada which is 4g NC per slice.
Hi Sue, thank you for the kind words! If it was my choice, I’d have this promotion be everywhere, but some regions of WFM had already partnered with other people to create healthy recipes for January. Since the recipes are now in the main database though, I think there’s a possibility that they could be shared with all stores eventually. 🙂
As for the Chao, it’s definitely not an every day thing, but it’s the lowest carb dairy-free “cheese” available near me, and it’s my go-to for putting on top of burgers or for pizza.
