The Not-So-Secret Superfood
Those of us on the ketogenic diet love our fats. Of course, we always strive to include the healthiest fats in our diet, so it’s no surprise one of the smartest fat fuels has been incorporated in this recipe.
The avocado, along with its buttery and nutty flavor and creamy texture, boasts many nutritional highlights. One of them is that it is a low-carb friendly plant food with an abundance of 20 different vitamins and minerals. The nutrient-dense avocado helps increase the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients, like Vitamin A, which is involved in immune, vision, and cellular functions.
Additionally, avocados are low in saturated fats and high in monounsaturated fatty acids. The majority of fat in avocados is oleic acid, which contributes to a reduction in blood sugar spikes, reduced risks of many diseases, and aids in weight loss.
Other Avocado Benefits:
- High amount of fiber
- Regulates blood sugar
- Helps fight free radicals
- Does not contain any cholesterol or sodium
- High potassium content (more than a banana)
- Promotes gut health
- Promotes eye health
