Peanuts On Keto?
We get asked about peanut butter often. Can you consume it on a keto diet? I've been told it's a legume so it's no no - is that true? Well, I think when it comes to any food you are considering consuming you need to look at the food as a whole, including the macros of the food.
While high in fat and moderate in protein, the carbs can add up on all nut butters. They are caloric-ly dense and easy to consume in surplus! For those reasons they might be best to stay away from, however, they are totally fine to consume on a keto diet and in moderation!
