I remember biking to Wendy’s all the time when I was a kid. I would always order two double cheeseburgers, a frosty, and a soda! Good old days.
Even though that was in the past, that doesn’t mean I stopped eating at Wendy’s. Luckily, I’m still am able to enjoy Wendy’s while still keeping it keto.
If you follow these simple guidelines below, you’ll be ordering keto at Wendy’s in no time.
First, make sure to cut off all bread, fries, and desserts. These contain high carbs and sugar, which will spike your blood sugar levels and knock you out of ketosis. As long as you have this down, most other options are free game. Just don’t overdo the portions on some items.
Wendy’s offers three low carb fresh-made salads. It’s best to order these salads with the lowest carb dressing and always skip the croutons. You can find the low carb dressings on the menu below.
If you’re craving some chicken nuggets, feel free to order either the 4 or 6 piece. The only low carb dipping sauce to choose from is the buttermilk ranch, but it goes perfectly with these nuggets.
Any type of burger is going to be low carb as long as you remove the bun. I listed all of the sandwich components with how many carbs they contain so you can easily build your keto burger!
Check out the easy to access low carb menu below!
Enjoy your Keto Meal!
