Are you on Keto and missing your favorite fast food?
You try to stay away from fast food restaurants on the Keto diet, but it’s almost impossible to avoid it completely. Whether it’s because you’re traveling or just had a crazy day and don’t have the energy to make dinner, fast food is convenient and easy.
It can be overwhelming to try to think of Keto fast food options—buns and fries are definitely not keto-friendly. And when you need the convenience of fast food, the last thing you want to do is try to research what you can and can’t eat.
Don’t worry, though, because there are lots of ways to eat keto while eating fast food. Today I’m going to share my favorite keto fast food options from restaurants that you’ve probably stepped foot in at least somewhat recently!
Hint: For any salads, always nix the croutons or other crunchy additions. Plus, ranch dressing is your safest bet for low carb.
20 Keto Fast Food Options
Note: Some of these options may not be enough to fill you up if you’re really hungry, so you might need to order a double portion. Or order a basic side salad if you have a few extra carbs for the day.
