Wake up and put some fat in your belly! The most beautiful part of a ketogenic lifestyle is that you get to focus on healthy fats, and without fear that it will make you pack on pounds. Really... the mindset shift from fear of fats to outright focus on them is still kind of mind-boggling, even if you've been eating keto for months or years.
And what's a more healthy fat than avocado? Pretty much nothing. There are so many reasons to start your day with an avocado, and this keto breakfast (or anytime) smoothie recipe offers a creamy and delightful start to your fat-fueled day.
