Avocados are my favourite keto-friendly superfood! I usually have an avocado every day - either as part of a complete meal or simple snack with just a pinch of salt. You're going to love this salad, it's so tasty, so simple and only takes a few minutes to prepare. Additionally, this recipe is suitable for the fat fast.

Including avocado in your diet is the best way to boost your electrolyte intake without taking supplements. Avocados are very high in fibre and very low in net carbs.

An average avocado has less than 4 grams of net carbs, is very high in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and contains 50% of your daily potassium. As you may know, sodium, magnesium and potassium are essential electrolytes and will help you beat "keto-flu". If you need to boost your electrolytes, here are even more recipes with avocados.

Easy Hard-Boiled Eggs

If you use hard-boiled eggs, here's how to cook them. Fill a small saucepan with water up to three quarters. Add a good pinch of salt. This will prevent the eggs from cracking. Bring to a boil. Using a spoon or hand, dip each egg in and out of the boiling water (be careful not to get burnt!). This will prevent the egg from cracking, as the temperature change won't be so dramatic. To get the eggs hard-boiled, you need round 10 minutes. When done, remove from the heat and place in a bowl filled with cold water.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Love avocados! The funny thing is that I started eating them after discovering keto. Can't believe I've been avoiding avocados for so long! Have you tried adding some cheese? Do you think feta may work?

Hi Liz, yes I think you can add some feta. I quite often have avocado, tomato & feta salad with some fresh basil and olive oil 😊
