Eating out on keto: Is it possible? 

The ketogenic diet stands out in a world largely dominated by carbs, and it can be challenging to follow, particularly if you are new to the lifestyle. One of the issues you will likely encounter is choosing fast food options that meet keto requirements. To help you out, we’ve rounded up keto fast food options at some of the most popular fast food restaurants. The best part? They’re all delicious! 

Finding keto-friendly fast food

Finding keto-friendly fast food can be tricky, but sometimes all it takes is a substitution here or there to turn a carb-heavy meal into one that fits right in with the requirements of the keto diet and lifestyle. Keto diets are low in carbs, high in healthy fats, and contain a moderate amount of protein. Many quick keto meals are bunless burgers, which every restaurant or fast food joint will be happy to serve you. To reduce the amount of carbs, forego the fries and opt for low-carb sides, like a salad. 

Keto fast food breakfast 

There’s a morning rush and you’re on a strict keto diet — but there’s no time to toss together a meal. No problem, since many fast food chains offer keto-friendly options for breakfast!

1. Mini Skillet from Taco Bell 

Exclude potatoes from this dish and you’re good to go. It’s made with nacho cheese, pico de gallo, eggs, steak, guacamole, and bacon. Order the dish as a “low carbohydrate mini skillet, no potatoes.” It won’t break the bank, either.

2. Bunless Sausage McMuffin with Eggs from McDonald’s

This quick keto meal is made with sausage, egg, and Canadian bacon and is served sans bun. Ask for a “low-carb bunless sausage McMuffin with egg”.

3. Egg and Chicken Breakfast from Carl’s Jr.

This meal has everything that makes a good breakfast: chicken, eggs, pico de gallo, and melted cheese. It contains just 1 net carb and 420 calories. Place the order as “egg and steak breakfast burrito, low carb.”​

Keto desserts to feed your sweet tooth 

Perhaps the best part about the keto diet is that the desserts are delicious, easy to prepare, and, most importantly, nutritious .

Here are three mouthwatering keto desserts that will satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth.

1. Keto sheet cake glazed with avocado chocolate frosting

Keto cakes aren’t as dense as normal cakes are, and this one is especially light and fluffy. To keep it keto-friendly, the sugary frosting is replaced with an equally delicious avocado-based chocolate one. Each serving of the dessert contains just 4 net carbs.

2. Chocolate and coconut cake

Chocolate and coconut cake

This gluten-free and keto-friendly cake is made with coconut butter and cinnamon and ranks high on the list of keto desserts to buy or make at home since each serving contains 2 net carbs.

3. Flourless chocolate cake

Who knew you could have chocolate without feeling guilty? Ghee and eggs add a rich texture to this cake, and you can even add chili powder to give it a little spice. This low-carb cake contains 3 net carbs per serving.

4. Chocolate chip cookies

You can’t go wrong with chocolate — and these ones are given a health boost with collagen peptides. These cookies ring in 5 net carbs per serving.

5. Keto-friendly sugar cookies

Replacing traditional white sugar with glycemic sweetener and white flour with coconut and almond flours makes these cookies acceptable for those following the ketogenic lifestyle. You can even ice the cookies with a keto-friendly frosting! Despite what you might think, each serving contains a single net carb.

It turns out that you can maintain your keto diet while also enjoying a bite of fast food from time to time. The key is doing your research and ordering correctly. You’ll find that almost every restaurant is able to accommodate your dietary needs — all you need to do is ask!
