The DOs And DON’Ts of Ketogenic Grilling (+ What Most People Don’t Know About BBQ Sauces)
There’s nothing better than a fun BBQ party with your friends and family, but what on Earth can you throw in the grill that is Keto-friendly?
The answer is; almost anything you were barbecuing before you started your Keto diet! Meats, chicken and fish are great ingredients for the grill. There are also plenty of vegetables that are Keto and that make amazing, grilled side dishes.
Still, there are a few things you probably hadn’t even thought of that can ruin your Ketogenic diet.
1. Never Buy Marinated Meat Unless You Know What’s In It
Yes, marinated meats are super convenient for BBQ’s if you’re short on time. But most of them are hiding a dirty secret - at least if you’re looking at them from a Keto perspective.
Most marinades include a great amount of sugar or honey, and possibly thickening agents that aren’t Keto-friendly. That’s why you should always buy fresh meat instead and then make your own marinade. It’s easier than you think!
What you need for a Keto-friendly marinade:
Mix together the ingredients and marinate your choice of meat overnight in the refrigerator.
Bonus Tip! Did you know you can use some of these Keto salad dressing recipes as marinades? The vinaigrettes work great - give it a try next time you want to grill some chicken breasts!
2. Your BBQ Sauce And Hot Sauce May Not Be Keto! ?
Just like marinades, store-bought BBQ sauces and hot sauces can include a variety of ingredients that will wreck your Keto diet.
Almost all of them include sugar so you should always check the ingredient labels carefully. Of course, if you make one of these awesome Keto BBQ Sauce Recipes, you won’t have to worry about a thing!
3. Kebabs Are The Quickest And Easiest Keto BBQ Food On The Planet
So easy, in fact, that you’re going to want to make these every other day! We’ve put together a massive list of our favorite Keto Kebabs for you to enjoy.
What I love about kebabs is that you can easily make a variety of options for your BBQ guests. And also the fact that these cook super fast compared to steaks and chicken breasts.
Serve these with your favorite Keto side dishes or a Keto salad.
4. Check Your Store-Bought BBQ Seasoning
Spice mixes and seasonings are really common these days, but beware - they may not be Ketogenic. Some of them may contain hidden gluten or sugar, so it’s best to double check before using them.
Don’t forget they are basically just different kinds of spices combined - it’s easy to create your own spice mixes at home. You can make different combinations for chicken, beef, or fish, and you’ll know all the ingredients are Keto.
