Eating out on the Keto Diet
"Lets go out to eat" I used to dread those words when I was on a traditional diet. Of course I wanted to go, but didn't want to deal with temptation, needed to go somewhere with "healthy options" or would be the weirdo asking how everything is prepared, ugh. Definitely didn't want to be the one to whip out my tupperware mid meal to eat my home cooked bland broccoli & chicken. Thankfully with the KETO diet this is a thing of the past! It is so easy to find Keto friendly options at restaurants. Let me give you a few tips, then tell you what I order at some of my favorite places!
My Favorite Fast Food Options
Love me some In-N-Out Burger! There are 2 things I typically order there. A Double Double with cheese "Protein Style" Which means wrapped in Letttuce no bun
or I also order the "Flying Dutchman" which is actually on their secret menu. It is double patty with cheese and grilled onions, no bun or lettuce but very delicious.
My other "go to" fast food spot is The Habit. They have delicious burgers and also offer a lettuce wrap option. I typically order the Charburger with cheese, add bacon & Avocado and wrapped in lettuce. I also love their grilled chicken salad with ranch dress, add avocado.
One of my favorite things to order at a restaurants is the Wedge Salad. Its on the menu at most steakhouses and American Style restaurants. It's Iceburg lettuce, Blue cheese dressing, Bacon and blue cheese crumbles. An excellent high fat low carb choice.
A nice steak with veggies is always a great option. Typically at a steakhouse they are prepared in butter which is perfect for leto and Delicious!
Chicken Ceasar Salad is a staple that can be found on almost any restaurant menu! Hold the croutons and you have yourself a perfectly delicious Keto Meal.
Breakfast is probably the easiest meal to eat out when on Keto. Of course eggs and bacon is a staple. But I also love an egg omelette with cheese and avocado & If you love Eggs Benedict, order it but remove the english muffin.
