Why is avocado such an ideal ingredient in the ketogenic diet?
Avocados are not only delicious and versatile in the kitchen, but they also contain lots of healthy fats such as monounsaturated fats, and few net carbs. They do contain a lot of carbs, but most of these are fiber and won't affect your blood sugar level.
Avocados are also, exceptionally nutritious and rich in potassium and fiber. If you remove the carbs from a recipe and replace them with avocado, chances are, you will have an ideal keto recipe.
