List of the best vegetables to eat on low carb or keto dietSince we were young we were told eat all the veggies on our plate, otherwise we won’t get any dessert. As we aged we realized that our parents didn’t hate us, they just wanted to make us healthy and happy.

Vegetables are a great source of healthy carbohydrates, which provide you fiber and many nutrients and vitamins. The main concern of the most people is that low carb diets or keto diets bring really low fiber intake in your body, so your digestion process will be slowed.In order to get all that good fiber in your body, you have to carefully choose the veggies you eat and, so you will have a decent fiber intake to help your body work properly.

My favorite rule to follow when choosing my veggies: “If it’s a leaf or it’s green eat it!”.
