We care about the environment and about what we put into our bodies. Functional chef Gerard Viverito combines the best of both worlds with his keto-friendly crispy fried chicken recipe made with Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil and using his new favorite kitchen appliance: the air fryer.

In this colorful two-page spread published in M Magazine, a premiere lifestyle publication for California’s bay area, Chef G. shared his Low Carb Fried Chicken Sandwich recipe served in homemade buns. Chef G. is passionate about choosing sustainable ingredients and is a strong advocate for Malaysian certified sustainable palm oil, which he believes should be a part of the clean keto diet. 

Malaysian palm oil is nature’s richest source of vitamin E tocotrienols which are particularly good for heart and brain health. Chef G. has previously commented, “It also holds up well to high heat, whereas some oils can become carcinogenic if you overheat them. And because I also care deeply about our environment, I look for opportunities to use Malaysian palm oil because it is certified sustainable. I’ve been on the plantations and in the rainforests. The Malaysians take incredibly good care of their people and our planet,”

 

With clean keto, you’re eating few if any processed foods. “I’m not talking about eating exclusively organic, although that’s nice if you can afford it. Clean keto is approaching the diet from a whole-food perspective,” Chef G. has said. “By this, I mean foods that come to your kitchen or table as nature created them. Think of fruits, nuts and seeds, for example, as nature’s convenience foods.”
