Can I have BBQ on Keto?
I remember when I first started eating low carb. I was lost, thinking that I would never be able to eat the "normal" foods I used to love again.
I think most people assume the same thing. After all, if you check the labels of most store-bought popular BBQ sauces, rubs, etc, you will see they contain a ton of carbs. Why is that? Well, for the most part, they include some type of sugar.
That will load you up on carbs without eating much of anything!
Then there are the traditional sides that come with a BBQ. Potato salad, macaroni salad, corn on the cob, apple pie, and the list goes on. All of them have a big red NO next to them on any list of keto foods.
So I knew I had to get inventive, rework old recipes into new, fresh low carb dishes, and then of course hit up all of my favorite low carb and keto bloggers too!
If you have cherished recipes from before just be bold and rewrite them with keto-friendly ingredients. My BBQ rubs, and sauces were an easy fix.
Then I took the side dishes the entire family loves and requests and swapped a few things around to make them just as tasty. In fact my non-keto family and friends constantly request things like my Deviled Egg Cauliflower Salad, Dill Pickle Coleslaw, Loaded Broccoli Salad, and Mixed Berry Salad.
I don't have a ton of low carb desserts yet, but I grabbed several that look and sound amazing from fellow bloggers. I can't wait to give them a try!
