If you’re going to a party:

Unless you’re going to a party where the host is keto, you’ll want to prepare yourself to ensure you don’t fall prey to eating “carbage.” Here’s how:

  • Ask your host if there will be keto-friendly foods there.

    If not, eat before you go so you don’t arrive hungry, and/or bring snacks and treats so you’re not deprived. 

  • Scan the party provisions for keto-friendly snacks.

    Charcuterie, cheese, crudités (think broccoli, bell pepper, and celery, not carrots), deviled eggs (sans breadcrumbs), chicken wings (without sweet sauces) are all good choices.

  • Drink keto-friendly alcoholic beverages.

    In general, clear alcohols served straight up or mixed with soda water is best. But there’s a whole world of keto cocktails. Find out more here. 

  • Watch your alcohol intake.

    Get too tipsy and you’re more likely to succumb to forbidden foods. 

If you just want treats without any tricks:

Treat yourself to awesome keto candy! There’s nothing wrong with enjoying something sweet on a ketogenic diet. The trick (and treat) is to find candy that doesn’t kick you out of ketosis. And guess what! That’s easier than you think. There are more and more quality keto candies on the market these days that are low carb and made from sweeteners that don’t easily spike glucose levels.
