Memorial Day is a time to celebrate our country’s independence and also for many people, it means the unofficial start of summer. Memorial Day weekend is an opportunity to get together with friends and family and what better way to celebrate than by enjoying some good food – especially if that food can be enjoyed guilt-free?
The following keto Memorial Day menu celebrates both the holiday and your lifestyle:
Recipe #1: Bunless Carmelized Onion Bacon Cheeseburger with Keto Approved Secret Sauce
You won’t be depriving yourself of anything with this burger! And the sauce seals the deal!
Recipe #2: Keto BBQ Grilled Chicken
Tangy sweet barbecued chicken is one of our summer staples – it’s a crowd pleaser, super easy to cook and a nice change from burgers.
Recipe #3: Grilled Halloumi Bruschetta
Bruschetta is the ultimate summer nosh – fresh tomatoes, on top of typically toast is a flavorful delight. So while planning this weekend’s BBQ, I really wanted to serve bruschetta as an appetizer that everyone could enjoy – a delicious sub is grilled halloumi!
Recipe #4: Low Carb Guacamole
This simple, 5-minute, low carb guacamole is terrific with bell pepper and zucchini slices, or throw some Cut Da Carb flatbread in the air fryer for keto tortilla chips. Yum!
Recipe #5: Keto Coleslaw
Coleslaw is a BBQ necessity, and the cabbage in coleslaw not only packs great nutrients but is low carb at just 2 grams of net carbs per CUP of shredded cabbage and combined with a high quality, high fat dressing or mayonnaise, it’s the perfect accompaniment for any keto barbecue.
Recipe #6: Deviled Eggs
Who doesn’t love deviled eggs? While I love this spicy “bloody mary” deviled egg recipe, for traditional BBQs, I go for a more muted version – though I kick it up a bit with avocado to make these keto deviled eggs extra creamy!
Recipe #7: Jicama French Fries
I decided to jump on the jicama band wagon and see how they stack up against potatoes as a burger side. The results = Delicious! It’s all about the seasoning – but jicama has a very potato-like texture (minus the carbs) and with some manipulating, turned out great.
Recipe #8: Lime Margaritas
Any keto barbecue wouldn’t be complete without keto cocktails. We have a few on here, however this Lime Margarita is a classic that goes with any outdoor barbecue.
Recipe #9: Triple Berry Tart
This festive tart is both deliciously low carb and features raspberries and blueberries for a red-white-and-blue themed dessert.
