Answer: Butternut squash is not keto, as it's too high in carbs.
Each serving of butternut squash (1 cup, cubes) contains 13.6 g of net carbs. Unfortunately, that's a bit too high to be appropriate for the keto diet.
For a lower carb squash, consider a nice zucchini. With only 2.6 g of net carbs per serving, zucchini offers a lower-starch squash alternative to butternut squash.
Spaghetti squash is another great keto-friendly squash, which is why you often find it as an ingredient in keto pasta dishes. At only 5.5 g of net carbs, it's a great way to simulate the taste of delicious pasta without packing on pasta-level carbs.
