Keto Chinese Food: The Top 17 Menu Items – Greatist

Crushing the keto lifestyle? It doesn’t mean you need to give up your fave foods. While you can’t chow down on chow mein, there are still tons of tasty keto-friendly Chinese food options.

Here’s how you can slay the Chinese buffet while you stay keto.

This iconic dish is made with stir-fried beef, broccoli, and brown sauce. The sauce tends to have less sugar than its thicker counterparts, but you can still ask for light sauce or get the sauce on the side.

FYI: Some restaurants marinate the beef in a cornstarch slurry. This makes the meat more tender but can also add more carbs to the mix.

This stir-fry is full of fab flavors. It features eggs, veggies, and the meat of your choice. Just ask for the main dish without starchy sides like rice or noodles.

You can also rock a semi-homemade vibe by pouring the stir-fry over zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice. You won’t even miss the noods.

Baked salmon packs a powerful punch of protein and is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins. It’s usually seasoned with traditional Chinese spices. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top and you’re in for a real treat.
