Do you miss eating fruit on a ketogenic diet?

Most fruit is loaded with more than enough sugar to kick you out of the Keto Zone.

But there are some low carb fruits that can be eaten in moderation. Keto friendly fruits included, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, and pomegranate. 

Small amounts of pomegranate don’t have enough sugar to significantly impact your blood glucose. Additionally, if pomegranate is eaten with high fiber foods this slows down the release of sugar in to the blood stream.

That is why this Keto Zone chicken pomegranate salad works so well for low-carb diets!

This recipe has tons of fiber, protein, and healthy fat. With 1/2 cup of pomegranate divided between 4 salads, you end up with only about 5 grams of net carbs per serving!
