Is Broccoli Keto-Friendly?

The rule of thumb for a Keto diet is to bypass any veggies that grow under ground. You also want to avoid veggies with high starch content. But, eating veggies with a higher carb count is permissible in some diets if the fiber count is higher. The fiber pretty much makes the carbs null and void. Therefore, broccoli is one of those permissible veggies. Here is a list of other veggies you can eat in moderation on the Keto-diet:

  • Asparagus
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Green Beans
  • Kale
  • Peppers
  • Spinach
  • Olives
  • Zucchini
  • Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Swiss chard
  • Tomatoes (technically a fruit)

  1. Hi! I’m new to Instant Pot (but I’ve got a lot of experience with a crockpot slowcooker). What size Instant Pot is this recipe for? Mine is a 6qt, but I know they come in 8qt as well. With my crockpot I’d fill it right up, but I worry about over-filling my IP and making a broccoli cheese bomb in my kitchen :p

    Thank you!!

  2. Is there a printable version of this recipe? It sounds delicious, but I can’t read it because of all the ads!
