Keto Guide to Sit Down Dining: Applebee’s

Tuesday, Oct 15, 2019 | Uncategorized

At Applebee’s, you’re going to want to skip the appetizers. Even their wings at a bit high in carbs (10g), which is fine, if you want to make them your main course.

The Caesar, Green Goddess Wedge and House salads are all keto-friendly. Of course, you’ll want to skip the croutons. You can also add grilled chicken for no extra carbs.

Your dressing choice is where things can go downhill quickly. No matter which dressing you choose, ask for it on the side. Keep in mind, most of Applebee’s main course salads weigh in at a whopping 1000 calories or more. YIKES.
