    I have to give a shout out to Zoes Mediterranean chain! Their cauliflower rice is so tasty, also they will substitute anything for anything. their online menu is easy to customize for keto options. Go Zoes!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the suggestion, Sarah! We’ll have to check it out!

  3. Ken

    My husband and I are finally returning to Keto after we gave up during the quarantine. I have been back for 2 weeks, and I wish I found your site earlier! I love it. Thanks for all this great information! You are making this process a lot easier than I thought it would be!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We are so glad you are here! Let us know if you have any questions, Ken!

    How would I ask for a keto Pumpkin Spice Latte?

    • natjasmom

      … at Starbucks 😊

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi there! Unfortunately Starbucks is not currently able to make a keto-friendly version of this drink. However you can make your own at home with this fun recipe ❤ Hope this helps!

      • natjasmom

        Ok thank you!

        • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

          You’re so very welcome 🥰

    Can you add PDQ restaurant?

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I’ll pass along your recommendation to the team! In the meantime, you can order the Grilled Chicken sandwich minus the bun and no honey mustard sauce. You can even ask them for extra lettuce to wrap it in. You can also have the PDQ salad w/grilled chicken, minus carrots and no honey mustard dressing. You’ll be safer asking for the blue cheese dressing. These suggestions would not be considered strict keto, and have a little more sugar than I would like to recommend.

  6. J.P.

    Any recommendations for Whataburger?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey there! Thanks for the request! I have passed that along to the team! In the meantime it seems that you can customize your order from Whataburger to have your burger made without the bun or any other non keto items you’d like left out of your order. Hoping that is helpful! 💖🙌
