When you want to have some carbs go for a fruit salad!
Fruit salads are refreshing and light on the stomach. They make even for a perfect meal if prepared properly. Even if, a lot of fruit is high sugar, we don’t need to be afraid of whole fruit in the context of a healthy diet. This fruit salad is mostly based on low carb fruit and can be enjoyed on a keto diet. It is made with berries, particularly, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and raspberries. Berries are a popular choice amongst those looking to lower their carb intake. All berries have various health benefits and they don’t all provide the same vitamins and minerals. So, by throwing all of these different berries together in a fruit salad, you end up with a colourful, delicious, hearty bowl packed with goodness and a lot of nutrients. The berries will give you a boost of energy, especially on a hot Summer day, due to the vitamins and antioxidants they contain.
