My Keto Adventure Avocado

May 14, 2018

Avocado is one of the highly recommended fruits in a keto diet as it has very little carbohydrate and rich in monosaturated fats and potassium. I have never been an avocado fan even though it is looks creamy, I thought it just tasted bland. Recently I have added it to my diet but just found other ways to eat it. As a child, I remember my mother sprinkled a little bit of salt on it before eating avocado, I have tried that out and I guess it works well.

I am struggling in knowing the avocado that has not gone back, I was adviced to check for the one that is brownish green and not hard or too mushy. If it is not ripe (looks green), store in a brown paper to help it ripen. Another I have learnt is that if you eat half of the avocado, you can the store the rest in the fridge but sprinkle lemon juice on it to prevent browning and then wrap cling film around it.

Now I am liking avocado and here are some ways I eat this superfood. I eat it with groundnuts, bacon, bell peppers, chicken, black pepper, cheese and the list can go on. So if you happen to be like me who just has to start eating avocado for health reasons then try to add colour and more excitement to it like adding it to your salad.
