DENISE’S STORY- HASS AVOCADOS
My son had been on the Ketogenic diet for over 3 years. The list of approved foods on the Ketocalculator states Hass avocados, from California or Mexico only.
I went to Raley’s supermarket and purchased Hass avocados, like I have so many times before, and Alec starts having seizures right away. I can’t figure out why. Meanwhile I’m still feeding him the Hass avocados until I have one avocado left which I notice has a little sticker on it. In VERY TINY print it says it’s from CHILE! I just assumed these were from California – the ones I had purchased the week before were.
The difference, the ones from Chile taste more like fruit and do not have that fat, buttery taste. I believe they are higher in carbs.
It just shows, we’ve always gotta be on our game! It may be a funny story to tell now but it wasn’t funny at the time!
