A low-carb tomato/marinara sauce is essential in every kitchen.
Tomato is a fruit, Tomatoes are Keto friendly
It’s still not common knowledge that a tomato is actually a fruit. I still have Indians constantly telling me a tomato is not Keto friendly. The truth is, a tomato is absolutely fine on the Keto diet. However it is best used in moderation. This is the main reason I implore people to read up, learn more and be better aware of what is acceptable on Keto. In fact I’ve even done a Keto 101 series where I demystify the question’What food can I eat on the Keto diet’. Just watch it here. Having said that, 100 grams of tomato has about 3.9grams of carbs from which about 1.2grams of it is fiber. So even if you look at it as a ball park figure, it’s about 2.7grams of carbs per 100 grams of the fruit. I’m pretty sure you can find space for that i your 20grams of carbs in a day. Anyway, enjoy and eat without fear.
