Can’t get enough avocados and eggs?
Both eggs and avocados are staple foods on the Keto diet.
Eggs are highly nutritious. With 77 calories, 6 grams of protein, and 5 grams of healthy fats. They are a superfood in a little shell (1).
Eggs are packed with vitamin D, E, K, B6, calcium, and zinc. Thanks to their high protein content, they are also very satisfying and good for your health.
What’s more, they are accessible and affordable. You can find them at any local grocery store for a reasonable price.
Avocados are another superfood that’s incredibly nutritious and healthy.
With more than 20 different vitamins and minerals, avocados are one of the most prized fruits in recent years.
They provide ample soluble fiber, essential amino acids, vitamin B-complex, and potassium.
They are also rich in monounsaturated fat, a healthy fat source found in olives (2).
In this simple low-carb recipe, you get to combine these two power foods. The softness of the eggs and creaminess of ripe avocado makes this a morning delight.
