To add to my previous post...
More High Fat Foods!
What’s high in protein and fat, with a powerful antioxidant to match? Salmon! This is yet another food that’s good for maintaining keto and good health. Fatty fish like salmon are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which provide multiple benefits. They may be useful for addressing inflammatory-related conditions like rheumatoid arthritis  and Ulcerative Colitis. Salmon also contains astaxanthin, a type of antioxidant from the carotenoid family that’s been studied for its affects towards protection against sunburn, wrinkles, and skin health. Astaxanthin may also support the immune system.Most people supplement with astaxanthin, but why not go straight to the source? You’ll be getting protein and omega-3 fats along with all the antioxidant benefits.
The spokesman of vegetables ought to be Broccoli. For starters, it’s a good source of fiber, helping to prevent constipation (which many have come to associate with keto). A single cup is chock-full of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, K, and Folate, Chromium, Phosphorous, Manganese, Choline, Potassium, Copper, and small amounts Zinc, Iron, Calcium, Selenium, and Magnesium.(Phew!) Broccoli also contains sulforaphane, a type of anti-inflammatory compound known for supporting detoxification, longevity, preventing cancer and diabetes, brain health, and having anti-microbial properties.  I’d say those are plenty of reasons to eat your veggies!
Fruit, although very healthy, is limited on keto since it contains enough sugar and carbs to prevent ketosis. The exception is berries, which contain fairly low amounts of sugar and net carbs (that’s the total amount of carbs you get after subtracting fiber). In moderation, they fit in a ketogenic diet.
Each berry has a “super power” of its own:
Blackberries contain the lowest net carbs, followed closely behind by Raspberries.
Blueberries have enough antioxidants to write an entire book on.
Strawberries provide as much, if not more, Vitamin C than an orange.
Cranberries– in whole food, un-dried or liquid form- may help to reduce urinary tract infections.
