Eggs are the most versatile foods you can use on a low carb diet. Super-food, nature’s miracle pack of nutrients, eggs are a perfect combination of vitamins and minerals that our body needs to work correctly.

How many carbs are in eggs?

According to USDA, one large egg (50g) provides minerals, vitamins, healthy fats and high-quality protein for only 0.7g carbs.

Most of this nutrients are found in the yolk, so eat the whole egg.

A large egg has less than one g of carbohydrates, so most people following a ketogenic diet don’t count the carbs in eggs.

They contain small amounts of every nutrient we need to be healthy.

All these fantastic health benefits come with eating a large egg: 77 calories with 0.7g carbs, 6 grams protein and 5 grams of healthy fats.

Vitamins and minerals in eggs

If you are bored of eating eggs the same way over and over, the keto egg salad is an excellent idea of how you can use eggs deliciously. Get those health benefits that eggs have, now.

Ingredients for the keto egg salad with avocado

I love to make a few tweaks to the classic egg salad recipe to make it healthier and filling.
Avocado gives a creamy texture and adds tons of health benefits.

  • 1 large avocado, ripe, pitted and peeled
  • 3 eggs, boiled and chopped
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 green onion sliced into thin rounds
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika powder

As you can see, I didn’t use any mayonnaise because it’s hard to find one at the supermarket that’s sugar-free, has healthy fats that are keto and doesn’t have any fillers.

If you want you can replace the sour cream with homemade mayonnaise or with avocado oil mayonnaise that is keto compliant and can be ordered on Amazon.

Sometimes I love to add fresh dill or fresh parsley to my egg salad to enhance the taste and boost the healing properties.
