Notes

Onions are allowed on keto diet in moderation. Especially they are totally fine with seafood. Make sure that you use middle size onion and you restrict yourself to the maximum 50 grams of carbs allowed the day of eating the soup.

Benefits of mussels

Mussels have so many health benefits, here are some of them:

  • Rich source of many minerals and vitamins, such as vitamin C, vitamin B, folate, iron, phosphorus, manganese, selenium and zinc – usually we have a lack of iron on a keto diet so it is a good recipe to get a more balanced nutrition.
  • Mussel meat is a high quality protein source – it is a great part of a heart-healthy, high-fiber diet and can offer health benefits such as aiding weight management.
  • Low in saturated fat but high in heart-healthy unsaturated fatty acid known as the omega-3 fatty acids – reduces risk of heart attack or sudden death from heart disease
