How to make Keto Diet-Friendly Pickles at home

How to make Keto Diet-Friendly Pickles at home

A few years back I was a great Keto fan. That was the time when I was a nonvegetarian and a woman without arthritis. Yes, I am planning to write about my weight loss and health journey story again soon.

When we talk about the Keto diet, there are many misconceptions prevalent and one of them is whether homemade pickles are keto-friendly or not. Some of the keto followers believe that the lectin and hidden sugars in pickles can ruin all the hard work while some feel that the essential vitamins and minerals in the pickles are a wonderful high in a Keto diet. Being an inquisitive person even I wished to know if Pickles for Keto diet are a ‘Yay or Nay’. Let us know more about if pickles are Keto Diet-friendly or not.

My simple logic says that one can have pickles on a Keto diet if it doesn’t contain added sugar or carbohydrates in any form. Pickles can be perfectly low-carb and keto-friendly as a snack or even as a flavourful side dish during meals. The one thing that we need to be careful about choosing the readymade pickles as most of them contains added sugar which contributes to adding carbohydrates to a perfect Keto Diet and in turn ruining it.

Best Keto Diet-friendly pickles

Now the question arises about the best way to add a pickle to keto meals. I personally suggest the homemade fermented pickles. You can read about making Kimchi pickles here.

Fermented pickles are undoubtedly the healthiest one as while fermenting, the process breaks down the sugar content in the pickle. In other words, it can be concluded that the carbs from sugars reduce to a large extent while fermenting. Obviously enough, in turn, the sour taste increases and makes the homemade fermented pickle the perfect choice for a Keto diet.

Though markets are full of Keto friendly products, yet there are very few options for fermented pickles on the shelves.  That is why I suggest preparing your own Keto Diet-friendly pickles and enjoy it guilt-free.

Keto Diet-friendly Cucumber Pickle

After checking around all over the internet, I found a few very easy options which are Keto Diet-friendly. Follow these easy steps….. Believe me it a kid’s play… in fact, I am soon planning to make my grandchildren make these pickles


  • Wash and pat dry 2 cucumbers.

  • Cut them into thick vertical or round slices.

  • Place them in a glass jar or reused glass bottle.

  • Add salt to taste, few cloves of garlic, and few peppercorns.

  • Top it up with 1 cup of white vinegar.

  • Pour 1 cup of hot water on top.

  • Keep the bottle in the refrigerator for a few days and Tadaaa! the Keto-friendly cucumber pickle is ready to be relished.

  • The same process can be followed while making the other Keto Diet-friendly pickles using Cabbage, Cauliflower, Green chilies, Ginger, Red onions, or even melons.

The Keto diet often causes fluid loss in the body and in such a situation pickle consumption helps you fight the troublesome keto-flu symptoms. Anything fermented is known to keep the gut healthy along with providing antioxidants.


It is advised to eat pickles in control as an increase in sodium intake can have side effects too. So how about making your own Keto Diet-friendly pickles at home and relish them stress-free!
