This keto fast food list is a great guide for those just starting a keto diet who are used to frequently consuming fast food. This list will give you a bunch of keto fast food breakfast ideas, keto fast food lunch ideas, and keto fast food dinner ideas.
Following a keto diet can be hard, and even harder if you’re traveling, forget to pack your lunch for work, or if you’re super busy and need to grab a quick bite to eat on-the-go. Many people wonder if they can eat fast food on the keto diet. And the answer is yes!
While it’s not the best option for foods to eat on a keto diet, fast food can be a great alternative if you otherwise would not be able to stick to the diet. This keto friendly fast food list will help you navigate restaurants and find the best keto fast food options for you. This list will help you maintain a ketogenic diet while eating out.
What Are Some Keto Fast Food Breakfast Ideas?
Many people struggle with what to eat for breakfast on a keto diet. A lot of people eat breakfast in their car on their way to work or running errands in the morning.
One super easy keto fast food option is to order a breakfast sandwich without the biscuit, muffin or croissant. This could look like a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit minus the biscuit.
What Are Some Keto Fast Food Lunch and Dinner Ideas?
Keto lunch and dinner options thankfully are a lot more vast than breakfast. A few keto fast food lunch options include:
- Salads with grilled chicken or steak
- Protein bowls minus the rice and beans
- Burgers without the buns or wrapped in lettuce
- Making a sandwich into a salad, lettuce wrap, or cold cuts wrap
What Are Good Restaurants for Low Carb Eating?
You can pretty much adapt any menu to fit a low carb lifestyle. Below are several fast food restaurants that have the lowest carb food options to fit your keto diet.
