18 Keto-friendly meals from Wendy's
Are you looking for keto-friendly meals that you can easily pick up on your way home from work, school, or any other aspect of your busy life? Me too! And since I’m always looking for a quick way to get out of making dinner, I wanted to help you do the same!
Check out these delicious keto foods from Wendy’s.
My faves: Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad, Parmesan Caesar Chicken Salad and Lettuce-wrapped Junior Bacon Cheese Burgers
Of course, salads are going to be the easiest menu item to get a good low-carb option. Or so you’d think... With a couple of Wendy’s salads you need to be careful because the fruits and dressings in them are loaded with sugar. That’s not to say they aren’t healthy, but if you’re trying to keep your carb count low, here are the best salads to eat from Wendy’s.
The macro counts for these salads are for a full salad, so if you just get the half salad (which is plenty filling in my opinion) then you can just half the macros.
Southwest Avocado Chicken Salad
Macros: Total Carbs - 10 net g, Fat - 41g, Protein - 43g
Parmesan Caesar Chicken Salad
Macros: Total Carbs - 7 net g, Fat - 35g, Protein - 51g
Spicy Buffalo Chicken Salad
(Ask for grilled chicken!)
Macros: Total Carbs - 9 net g, Fat - 43g, Protein - 35g
Caesar Side Salad (without croutons)
Macros: Total Carbs - 4 net g, Fat - 18g, Protein - 11g
Garden Side Salad (without croutons)
Macros: Total Carbs - 4 net g, Fat - 18g, Protein - 7g
Okay, I’m sorry in advance for the pictures of the carb-loaded buns that we all crave, but the burgers are still super good without them. I promise! Here are the burgers that are the most keto-friendly.
Make sure to order these bunless or lettuce-wrapped. And if you want the sauce that comes with them, ask for it on the side or they’ll leave it off.
Disclaimer: Macros for burgers are based on the smallest variation of each type. Macros for burgers and sandwiches are rough estimates, not exact measurements.
S’Awesome Bacon Cheeseburger (and Double, and Triple!)
Macros: 10 net g carbs, 40 g fat, 30 g protein
Dave’s Single (and Double, and Triple!)
Macros: 10 net g carbs, 34 g fat, 29 g protein
Son of a Baconator (and the OG Baconator)
Macros: 8 net g carbs, 40 g fat, 30 g protein
Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger
Macros: 2 net g carbs, 23 g fat, 15 g protein
Jr. Cheeseburger Deluxe

Again, you’ll need to order bunless or lettuce-wrapped on these, but they’re still pretty yummy.
Grilled Avocado BLT
Macros: 7 net g carbs, 31 g fat, 41 g protein
Grilled Chicken Sandwich
Macros: 8 net g carbs, 10 g fat, 30 g protein
Grilled Asiago Ranch Club

When you order these items, be sure to order them without the biscuit or croissant. Don’t just order “a sausage patty and egg” though or you may get charged extra. Weird, I know.
Order the actual item, and just ask for no bun/biscuit/croissant.
Sausage, Egg & Cheese Biscuit (sans biscuit)
Macros: 4 net g carbs, 36 g fat, 17 g protein
Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit (sans biscuit)
Macros: 3 net g carbs, 19 g fat, 13 g protein
Sausage Biscuit (again, sans biscuit)
Macros: 3 net g carbs, 25 g fat, 9 g protein
Sorry, this heading is a cruel joke...there are no keto-friendly desserts at Wendy’s.
Umm, water is keto-friendly.
Technically, diet sodas won’t kick you out of ketosis and I’m a diet soda drinker for sure. So if you want to indulge in a soft drink, go diet. Just don’t get the sugary syrup flavors that Wendy’s has at their soda fountains.
