A salad is an option that you can always consider for any meal or even as a supporting dish to any meal.
Frankly speaking, I had no idea that there is something called as keto salad recipes that exist until I came across some random post on google about keto salads. I was unaware of the idea that salads can be given a ketogenic form and people have done that. But that’s great, you get some more eating options.
That being said, it is not just the basic tomato and cucumber salad, it generally contains ingredients that are rich in healthy fats. That is what gives the salads a ketogenic form or makes it keto complaint. Keto diet is a high-fat low carb diet if by any chance you don’t know. So you can definitely include some low carb vegetables as they are a part of the keto food list.
You can eat salads along with any other meals when it is not a get on with the cooking day for you or when you simply feel like eating something simple for lunch or dinner. So basically it means that you can eat salads anytime.
So, whether you want to eat salads as the entire meal or are considering it as a side option, these delicious, green, as well as healthy recipes, are the ones, you won’t regret trying out.
