Are Mushrooms Whole30 + Keto?

Mushrooms are one of my favorite whole30 + keto side dishes. Perfect along steak, chicken or pork. They’re earthy, umami flavor can’t be beat! They’re whole30 compliant, keto friendly, and a great source of vitamins and minerals. Make sure to always get organic mushrooms!

I love sauteeing my mushrooms in a cast iron skillet with ghee and a little garlic. It gets them perfectly caramelized and golden brown.
