Carrot taco shells are low-carb, healthy, keto, baked taco shells made with only 5 ingredients and coming at 3.3 grams of net carbs per shell!
Plus, they are gluten-free and grain-free.
Carrots often have a bad reputation because they are seen as very high in carbs and sugar. However, 100 grams of carrots only contain 6.8 g net carbs per 100g and 4.7 grams of sugar.
Let’s compare this to a keto-approved fruit like blueberry. Blueberries contain 10 grams of sugar and 11.6 gram of net carbs.
Do you see what I mean now? Even if most keto vegetable lists say that carrots are NOT keto-approved, they are still lower in carbs than blueberries!
So yes, carrots will probably keep you out of ketosis if you eat too many! However, one of these shells contains only 3.3 grams of net carbs, and if you manage to fit them into your 25-gram net carbs daily macro, you will be all fine!
For example, serve 1 of these shells with ground beef or chicken, lettuce, and aioli, and you will get around 4 grams of net carbs for a fulfilling dinner.
Also, keep in mind that to compare, 100 grams of sweet potatoes has 17 grams of net carbs! So yes, having too many carrots is not keto, but some are fine on a low-carb diet.
