Staying Low-Carb During Memorial Weekend: Tips and Tricks

Memorial Weekend is a time for celebration, but it can be challenging to maintain a low-carb diet with all the tempting high-carb foods. Here are some strategies to help you enjoy the festivities without compromising your dietary goals.

Skip the Bun: Opt for bunless burgers or hot dogs. Wrap your meat in lettuce leaves or enjoy them with a fork and knife. You'll cut down on carbs while still enjoying the main event. If you're looking for something savory still, our Dough Mix will be your best friend.


Bring Your Own Desserts: Avoid the sugar-laden sweets by bringing your own low-carb treats. Make delicious desserts with our versatile baking mixes, ensuring you don't miss out on the fun. Check out all the simple and mouth-watering recipes here.

Eat Before You Go: Have a low-carb meal or snack before attending events. This will help you avoid overeating high-carb foods out of hunger.

Focus on Protein and Veggies: Load your plate with grilled meats, vegetables, and salads. Avoid starchy sides like potatoes and pasta salads, opting instead for green salads, veggie platters, or charcuterie boards.


Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water. Sometimes thirst is mistaken for hunger, leading to unnecessary snacking. Add a lime or use electrolytes to flavor it up and give you added salt for hydration. We use LMNT!

By planning ahead and making smart choices, you can enjoy a fun and delicious Memorial Weekend while staying true to your low-carb lifestyle.
