Entertain with Keto-Friendly Food

By on January 30, 2020

Keto is no longer an unknown word or an unfamiliar diet, but how would you entertain with Keto-friendly food? Those who do not understand the diet think it’s all about high-fat and eating only bacon and eggs. Of course, it’s much more than that! Keto is a low-carb diet that reduces blood sugar, lowers blood pressure and supports weight loss. There are many more options for food choices than just bacon and eggs. 

Whether you are entertaining for the Superbowl, a group of friends for an afternoon tea or a dinner party, we have some Keto-friendly food ideas for you.

3 Hors D’oeuvre Keto-Friendly Foods to Serve:

  1. Taco Bites These taco bites are easy to make with only 4 ingredients! They freeze well and super easy reheat – they’re even delicious straight out the microwave! With only 70 calories, 5 grams of fat, 4 grams of protein and less than 1 gram of carbs, what’s not to love about them? 

  2. Jalapeno Poppers Creamy and deliciously crispy, these jalapeno poppers are a crowd pleaser! Prepare them ahead of time and bake for 30 minutes before serving – your guests will be delighted they came over. 

  3. Cheesy Stuffed Pesto MeatballsIf only these cheesy stuffed pesto meatballs wrapped in bacon weren’t as good as they sound because once you’ve had one, you’ll want more! Thankfully, they are a whopping low 0.5 grams of carbs, so eating two or three more won’t hurt, right? 

The wonderful thing about finger foods is that you can prepare and even make most of them ahead of time. They are easy to serve with cocktail napkins, mini side plates, cocktail sticks and or simply eat using fingers… hence the name “finger food”.

3  Keto-Friendly Main Dishes to Serve Around the Table:

  1. Lamb Kabobs Tender Greek lamb skewered meat served with salad – refreshingly different and absolutely delicious. While lamb may not be everyone’s first choice, we encourage you to give it a try. If you’re just not sure, you can always swap out the lamb for pork, beef or chicken. 

  2. Lemon Chicken Serve this flavorful lemon chicken with low-carb angel hair pasta and you have a comfort-food dish as well as a Keto-friendly meal. This dish will take you 30 minutes or less to prepare and serve with each serving comprising of as little as 3 grams of carbs! 

  3. Baked Salmon This scrumptious cranberry-orange butter salmon will have your tastebuds in heaven with a zero carb count! A recipe so easy yet it will impress every dinner guest at the table.

Every main dish is made even more wonderful when paired with the right wine, champagne or even sparkling water. Put on some light background music, display flowers or light candles, and most importantly – smile! Enjoy the time with friends and make memories.
