Are mixed vegetables keto-friendly?
Yes, most mixed vegetables can be included in a ketogenic diet as they are low in carbs. A typical 1-cup serving of mixed frozen vegetables (such as corn, peas, green beans, and carrots) contains about 18 grams of carbohydrates, 6 grams of which are dietary fiber, thus yielding about 12 grams of net carbs. For comparison, a ketogenic diet typically limits total carbohydrate intake to 20-50 grams per day. However, it's crucial to monitor portion sizes as eating high amounts can increase carb intake and potentially disrupt ketosis.
