McDonald’s keto options span their breakfast and lunch/dinner menus, and we know what it’s like to be craving some food from the golden arches. Thank goodness they have many options for you!
#1 McDonald’s Keto Option – Quarter Pounder w/ Cheese
Firstly, the juicy, savory quarter pounder with cheese is one of our favorites at McDonald’s. Not only will it fill you up, but the flavor is amazing. Of course, be sure to ask for it sans bun!
Pro Tip: Make it a double if you’re feeling extra hungry!
#2 McDonald’s Keto Option – Sausage, Egg & Cheese McMuffin
Secondly, with only 4g net carbs (without the muffin) the Sausage, Egg & Cheese is a great way to start your day. This protein packed breakfast sandwich is a surefire way to start your morning right.
#3 McDonald’s Keto Option – Pico Guacamole with Artisan Grilled Chicken Sandwich
For a little more flavor, give the pico guacamole with artisan grilled chicken sandwich a try (without the bun, of course). This sandwich has the extra added punch of guacamole, and the leptin from the avocado will leave you feeling full for hours. This is one of our new favorites!
#4 McDonald’s Keto Option – Bacon McDouble
For a classic low-carb option, order yourself a bacon McDouble with no bun and no ketchup. Instead of the ketchup, substitute some mayo and mustard. The Bacon McDouble is a quick and easy way to get your McDonald’s fix without worrying about extra carbs.
#5 McDonald’s Keto Option – Side Salad
If you’re being dragged along to a McDonald’s outing and you’re not too hungry, we recommend ordering the side salad. This dish is great for a snack or a quick fix if you need some greens in your life. Be sure to avoid the croutons!
Pro Tip: Check out the McDonald’s website nutrition calculator to play around with add-on options.
#6 McDonald’s Keto Option – Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit
Another fantastic breakfast option at McDonald’s is the Bacon, Egg & Cheese biscuit. While we’ll miss eating the biscuit, the savory bacon and eggs make up for the loss. Add the picante sauce packet (1g carb) to spice up your morning!
Pro Tip: Order yourself a black coffee — iced or hot — on the side to complete your low-carb meal.
#7 McDonald’s Keto Option – Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad
One of the healthiest options at McDonald’s is the bacon ranch grilled chicken salad. This salad boasts 40g of protein and will leave you feeling refreshed and full. Be sure to ask for it with no tomatoes.
#8 McDonald’s Keto Option – Unsweetened Iced Tea
If you just need a quick trip through the drive-thru for a refreshing drink, stop by for some of McDonald’s unsweetened iced tea. Because it’s especially great in the summer months, this option can round out any of your meals.
