High Fat Keto Snacks

Avocados

Anyone who has been on a keto diet for a while understands the need for high-fat foods. Foods high in fat are vital because they are satiating, giving you longer stretches of time without the feeling of being hungry. However, not all fats are created equally. Food filled with saturated and/or trans fats seem to be everywhere, but the best types of food are high in monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, and omega-3 fatty acids. These are “healthy fats” which not only satisfy hunger, but have been known to improve cholesterol levels which lowers the risk of heart disease.

The high-fat holy grail of keto snacking comes in the form of the all-natural avocado. This native to Mexico mega fruit is not only high in monounsaturated fat (almost 20 grams in a single avocado) but is also chock-full of vitamins and minerals such as potassium, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, and folate – just to name a few.

Why They’re Great:

– High in healthy fats

– Full of vitamins & minerals

– Low-carb
