4 Avocado Recipes You Need In Your Keto Diet

4 Avocado Recipes You Need In Your Keto Diet

One of the most important lessons to learn on the keto diet is to befriend the almighty avocado. Rich in fiber, copper, folate, potassium, magnesium, and heart-healthy fats, avocados are one of the best keto-approved foods. Not only do they net 2 carbohydrates per 100 grams, they are also low in in saturated fats and don’t contain sodium or cholesterol.

 

Let us not forget that avocados are great sources of monounsaturated fats, which are the healthiest fats that are often found in olive oil and nuts. People on the keto diet tend to eat foods that don’t contain a lot of fiber. There are about 13 grams of fiber in one avocado, helping to move food through the digestive system. The potassium content in avocados is also beneficial for controlling blood pressure.

 

When you look at the amount of nutrients in an avocado, you can consider it a macro-friendly multivitamin. Avocados may seem off-putting to a lot of people, but consuming at least one a day is essential for improving overall nutrition on the keto diet. Plus, their flavor is mild and can be masked by other flavors. In some of the following recipes, you can’t even taste the avocado!
