When you’ve had a long day of work, or find yourself exhausted at the end of the day from taking care of your family, sometimes all you want to do is go out for dinner or pick up the phone and order take-out. But when you’re following the Keto-diet, that might feel like a daunting task. How do you know if a restaurant offers Keto-friendly options?
If you live in the Cache Valley area of Utah, we’ve got you covered! We’ve put together a list of six restaurants that offer Keto-friendly menu items, so whether you live in the area or have plans to travel through, check out these great spots!

Additional tips for eating out while on the Keto-diet:
- Browse the menus in advance
- Stick to high protein, low carb/sugar options
- Ask for substitutions. Eyeing up a burger on the menu? Ask for lettuce instead of the bun. Or ask if you can substitute cooked greens or a salad instead of potatoes or fries.
Remember, when you’re following the Keto diet you can still enjoy a night out at a restaurant or a night-in with take-out, all it takes is a little pre-planning. Hopefully this list gives you a head start!
