Do carrots count as a Keto food?
On the keto diet, carrots can be a little debatable. They provide very few carbs but a lot of great taste, so I decided to include them in the dish. The dish calls for half of a large carrot, which contains 3.5 grams of total carbohydrates. For me, that makes sense, but it might not be for you. That’s all right.
If carrots are allowed on your ketogenic diet, include them to enhance the flavor of the traditional chicken pot pie. It’s fine if carrots don’t fit into your ketogenic diet. Without them, this meal is still quite tasty!
