Eating Out Keto-Friendly

No need to avoid eating out at restaurants while on a keto diet. Restaurants typically have a few options for you to choose from, some with a few modifications and wise choices.

Here are a few that I have found to be helpful:

Choose grilled or baked instead of fried. Choose blackened shrimp instead of battered and fried. Choose miso soup instead of french onion or broccoli cheddar. Choose club soda with lime instead of a regular soft drink. Choose stevia instead of regular sugar. Choose charcuterie board instead of nachos (avoid crackers and jams). Choose shrimp cocktail instead of tacos. Choose omelet with cheese instead of pancakes or waffles. Soooo… plenty of options that make great keto sense!

Be wary of sharer platters! Don’t get caught eating all of the carbs because the other person has the protein. Best to order specifically for your needs.

Accommodating dietary needs such as gluten-free, shellfish or peanut allergies is part of a good restaurant’s repertoire. During these unprecedented times, many menus are online. Preview and be prepared before you arrive. Restaurant staff are prepared to answer questions about nutritional content and provide alternatives for you.

Your Server will accommodate your requests. Don’t be “that guy” who is the difficult patron. After all, if you enjoy the food, you may become a regular!

So, I have six nieces and nephews in the restaurant business and have two close friends that own local restaurants. Just from their personal POV, special requests are common and are readily accommodated as much as possible for all patrons.

So eat out and enjoy!

Until next time!
