Eating out with 'Keto'

Eating out with 'Keto'

Probably one of the things we commonly enjoy is eating out.

One might think that since you have committed to this diet you can say goodbye to dining out, fret not. 

Eating out does not need to feel like a task. 

The secret is to learn how to modify what a menu offers. 

There is always something you can eat, even if at times it means asking the waiter/waitress to modify the meal for you. 

Below are a few guides on what you can eat on your next night out. 

Trip To Mexico

  • Steak, Chicken or Shrimp Fajita on lettuce with sour cream and guacamole or sliced avocado

  • Chile Verde 
  • Chipotle salad

NOTE: Avoid tortillas and the shell for taco salad

For this menu, while it's tempting, skip the pita bread.
