One of the best sources of low-carb protein in Canada is meat. Beef, pork, chicken, and turkey are all great options that are high in protein and healthy fats. Wild game, such as venison and bison, are also good choices. These meats are not only low in carbohydrates, but they also provide a rich source of essential minerals and vitamins.

Fish and seafood, such as salmon, halibut, and shrimp, are also excellent low-carb options. They are high in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects and may reduce the risk of heart disease. Additionally, Shellfish like clams, oysters, mussels, and scallops also low-carb and rich in micronutrients.

Eggs are another great low-carb food option that is readily available in Canada. They are a good source of protein and healthy fats, and can be used in a variety of ways, such as boiled, fried, scrambled, or even made into an omelette.

Dairy products, such as cheese and butter, are also low in carbohydrates and can be enjoyed as part of a low-carb diet. Hard cheeses like cheddar and gouda are particularly good options, as they are high in fat and protein.

When it comes to vegetables, leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and broccoli are some of the best low-carb options. They are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals and are an excellent way to add bulk and nutrition to a low-carb diet. Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage also low in carbohydrates, and can be enjoyed steamed, roasted, or in stir-fries.

Nuts and seeds, such as almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds, are also great low-carb options. They are high in fat and protein, and make a great snack or addition to a salad. Berries like blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are also low in carbohydrates, high in fiber and antioxidants.

It is important to note that some popular Canadian traditional foods such as poutine, maple syrup, and Nanook (a traditional Inuit dish) are high in carbohydrates and may not be suitable for a low-carb diet.
