Everyone knows that the avocado is a must-have for anyone participating in the keto diet. Half an avocado already contains a whopping 15g of fat, which is great news for keto dieters since it is imperative to eat enough fat each day in order to reach your goals. Not only is this powerful fruit full of healthy fat, but it contains tons of vitamin E and fiber as well. Just one avocado also contains more potassium than an entire banana!
Most of the fat found in avocados is a monosaturated fatty acid called oleic acid, that studies show is responsible for reducing inflammation, and helping to fight cancer.
This simple recipe is an easy way to get in these healthy fats without all the fuss. It makes a great dip for veggies or our Parmesan Cheddar Crisps! Not a huge avocado fan? No worries! This green beauty is a great additive to smoothies to add creaminess without the flavor. You can also use avocado oil in place of other oils such as olive.
