These are the Top 5 Ketogenic Superfoods essential for a well formulated ketogenic diet.
The King of the Keto Superfoods!
Full of healthy fats, vitamins and fibre. Avocados are high in potassium, which makes them great for replenishing your electrolytes!
Did you know that you can’t absorb all the goodness from the whites of the eggs without eating the yolk? Eggs are high in protein and rich in selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper. They also taste great with avocado!
A common mistake made by people first trying the ketogenic diet is that they don’t eat enough fibre. Be sure to consume plenty of leafy greens such as: Spinach, Kale, Broccoli, Chard, Bok Choi, Cabbage, Celery, Watercress, Lettuce, Courgettes and Spring Onion.
The Queen of the Healthy Fats!
MCT stands for ‘Medium Chain Triglycerides’ which are chains of healthy fatty acids. MCTs are perfect for ketosis because the body quickly converts them into ketones. The amazing characteristic of concentrated MCT Oils, such as Capric and Caprylic acid (C8 Oil), is that they are not stored as body fat, your body uses them for fuel!
Great for cooking as it doesn’t go toxic at high temperatures. Wonderful for making delicious Bulletproof or Fat Coffee a la Dave Asprey!
