– Getting Started & Next Steps
Demanding diets can be a limiting factor when dining out. You may have to watch other people order from the endless options while you are held back by your vow to stick to a keto diet. Before dining out, it is vital to prepare and check the restaurant’s online menu and come up with what you will ask them to substitute or how you will avoid those carbs. Based on the blog post “How to Eat Keto at Your Favorite Restaurant,” it is clear that you can turn the regular carb filled restaurants into excellent keto restaurants if you can use little tricks to order your meal. This guide is aimed at providing with options of meals you could have at a restaurant without feeling guilty.
Going bunless is an option. It is common for people to have burgers on weekdays. Most burger joints will have meals that can suit everyone and their diet requirements. They are becoming more aware of the need for low carb meals, and they are adapting their service to this. You can swap out the bun for a lettuce wrap and add some toppings. You can add a lot of cheese and bacon. You can choose cheese sauce, mayonnaise, and mustard in favor of ketchup.
If you happen to check into a restaurant that serves meat exclusively, you have no reason to be worried. They could either serve BBQ and steak or grilled meat. These are all havens for people on keto diets. You can order a juicy charbroiled steak and increase your fat intake by topping it with butter. If you choose to go for ribs at a BBQ joint, ask for non-sugary sauces that are not high in sugar like seasonings and barbecue. Middle Eastern cuisine is a safe and convenient alternative, ordering grilled meats like kebab or lamb will be delicious.
Both baked and grilled alternatives are safe. Ask anyone, and they will tell you that you are never going to find keto-friendly dishes at an Italian restaurant due to their array of pasta and pizza. This is a baseless assumption. A chicken piccata or baked chicken with some cheese mozzarella topping will have you licking your fingers. Some veggies on the side will do instead of having some pasta or potatoes as side dishes. Alternatively, you could go with baked or seared salmon over a layer of finger licking vegetables. If not, you could try out some rich chicken caesar salad but remember to exclude the croutons.
