Step 1: Pop 4 slices of crusty artisan bread in the toaster, or on the middle rack of an oven set at 350 degrees F, until crisp and golden brown.

If you're counting calories, you should know that a 10-ounce avocado has about 369 of them, as well as 37 grams of fat. However, the average avocado serving size&mdash5 ounces&mdashis half that. What's more, roughly 84 percent of the total fat count is "good" (i.e., unsaturated) oil. And some more good news: Avocados are also low in sodium, have no cholesterol, and provide substantial amounts of potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, vitamins A and C, and niacin.

To Pit: Halve a washed avocado lengthwise using a chef's knife to cut all the way into the flesh until it touches the pit. Twist halves to separate. Strike the pit with a sharp chef's knife to "grab" it. Rotate to loosen and release the pit from the fruit.

To Peel: If flesh is firm, peel skin with fingers if not, scoop out whole with a large spoon and slice or chop.

To Cut: When looks count (as they do in salads and garnishes), slice the fruit vertically, in its skin, then horizontally to create perfect cubes. Scoop out with a spoon. For perfect slices, peel away skin and cut with a thin knife.

To Mash: For guacamole and other chunky-style avocado dips, use a fork to mash avocado cubes and to incorporate any remaining ingredients.

Tip: Inhibit "brown-out" by spritzing with lemon juice, then refrigerate in an airtight container.

What Kind of Avocado Do I Need?

For this recipe, you will need a perfectly ripe avocado. One that is too hard will not mash as well, and you won’t get the same great soft consistency as you would with a softer avocado.

You also don’t want one that is starting to brown as that means the avocado is going bad and shouldn’t be eaten.

When picking out your avocados at the store you will want to choose one that is soft to the touch when squeezed, but does not already have bruises or indents.

5 Reasons to Eat Avocados on Keto

Americans are obsessed with avocados. And while this may seem like another trendy superfood craze, this fruit’s glory is the real deal[*].

Here are just five reasons why avocados deserve all the attention they’re getting:

1. Avocados Are Nutritional Powerhouses

They’re packed with 19 vitamins and minerals and healthy monounsaturated fats.

There’s almost no better food when you’re in keto than avocados, as the macro breakdown for one California avocado shows they have[*]:

  • 227 calories
  • 2.67g of protein
  • 21g of fat
  • 11.75g of carbs
  • 9g of fiber
  • 2.75g of net carbs

So, for less than 3g of net carbs, you’ll be adding over 20g of healthy fats to help your body kick-start and maintain ketosis.

Healthy fats in avocados also make it easier for your body to absorb nutrients from the foods you eat — especially fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K.

2. Avocados are Excellent for Your Heart and Gut

Half the participants in one study significantly lowered their total cholesterol simply by adding avocados to their diet[*].

Three-fourths of those participants also lost weight or stayed the same, even with the increased calories and fat from avocados in their macros.

And thanks to all the fiber in just half of one avocado, study participants reported more regular bowel movements, too.

3. Avocados Help Support Weight Management

Some clinical studies show that consuming half an avocado per day may decrease overall hunger and help you feel satiated sooner and longer[*].

This may help you eat fewer calories over the course of the day so it’s easier for your body to create a deficit for weight loss.

The monounsaturated fatty acids found in avocados may also help prevent dangerous abdominal fat and help lower the risks of complications from diabetes[*].

4. Avocados May Help Protect Against Cancer

Phytochemicals in avocados have been studied for their anti-carcinogenic properties, which combat oxidative stress and may prevent the development of cancer.

Avocados are rich in phytochemicals such as terpenoids, carotenoids, phenols, and glutathione.

While more research is needed, there’s evidence to suggest that avocados may be able to decrease your risks of developing throat and mouth cancer.

Data shows the higher your intake of foods with glutathione, the lower your risks for developing those cancers[*].

5. Avocados May Prevent Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome includes the cluster of conditions including heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.

Scientists discovered that when people ate avocados, they also[*]:

  • Consumed more vegetables, which increased their intake of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.
  • Had a lower intake of added sugars.
  • Ate a better diet overall.

Eating avocados was enough for study participants to reduce their weight, waist circumference, and BMI, all of which helped lower their risks for metabolic syndrome.

Now it’s easy to see why you should make avocados a staple in your keto diet.

But if you’re wondering how to do that beyond adding avocado slices to your favorite low-carb dishes, you can use these 40 keto recipes for inspiration.

One of the easiest ways to sneak in more avocados, especially if you don’t care for their taste, is by mixing them into low-carb smoothies.
