Are Avocados Keto? Do You Count Avocado Carbs on Keto?
Avocados are great for Keto or for most any diet for that matter. Most people on Keto that count net carbs when they are keeping track of their macros. One avocado only has 2 net carbs and is loaded with 15 grams of monounsaturated fats.
Can You Have Buffalo Chicken on Keto?
Chicken is a great source of protein. But some store-bought buffalo sauces use canola oil as a base. For that reason, it's best to use a homemade healthier version of Buffalo Wing Sauce, like in this recipe.
What Can I Add to Half an Avocado?
There are so many wonderful ways to stuff avocado halves. Some of my favorites you should try are these Taco Stuffed Avocados, Shrimp Salad Stuffed Avocados and avocados stuffed with this Keto Chicken Salad.
Tips for Buying and Storing Avocados
It has happened to all of us. We buy avocados for a particular recipe, get them home and they are either too ripe or not ripe enough. Here are some top tips that will help you when selecting avocados from the grocery store as well as some tips on storing them for maximum freshness:
- Look for avocados that have uniform texture all over. If there’re soft spots, that means they’re bruised.
- Check the firmness. If an avocado is too firm to the touch, then it hasn’t ripened. If you’re going to need them several days in advance, these may be a good choice as they ripen well sitting on the counter. If they’re super soft, they’re either too ripe or will need to be used immediately. Gently putting pressure on the fruit is all that is needed, don’t squeeze them too hard.
- If you have an avocado that has not ripened, don’t store it in the fridge. Chilling avocados halts the ripening process. Instead put it in a paper bag on the windowsill and it will help it ripen quicker.
- Once the avocado has reached the desired degree of ripeness you prefer, you can store leftovers in the fridge.
- To optimize their freshness in the fridge, sprinkle with fresh lemon juice and place in a food saver storage bag, with all the air vacuumed out. They’re usually best when used within 3 days of slicing.
- I've also stored mine in a glass of cold water in the fridge (you might have heard of this before on social media) and guess what? It really works!
Can I Freeze These Buffalo Chicken Avocados?
It is not recommended that you freeze stuffed avocados because the texture changes a good bit and they become mushy.
The buffalo chicken filling freezes really well though. Just place the leftovers in an airtight container and place in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Are Avocados Good for You?
Avocados are very nutritious! They are an awesome source of vitamins C, E, K and B6. They are also a great source of fiber, riboflavin, niacin, and magnesium. Avocados even have 60% more potassium than bananas? How awesome is that!
And because avocados contain a good bit of healthy fats, they can help you feel full longer between meals.
