Have you jumped on the keto train? If you aren’t familiar, the keto or ketogenic diet is the latest craze. It is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that is said to force your body to burn fat (rather than sugar) as it’s energy source. Thus, its menu is packed with lots of meats, nuts, and vegetables and devoid of pastas, grains, and processed foods.
Avocado is a star in the keto diet lineup. Not only do these fruits adhere to keto standards, they are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. For breakfast, lunch, or dinner, try one of these easy-to-assemble “boats.” Read on for the quick-and-easy, single-serving recipes.

Cook for 10-15 minutes or until the egg is done. Remove and sprinkle with bacon pieces. Finish with chopped parsley or chives, if desired.
