Plan a little something different for your next date: a relaxing picnic at a beautiful location. There’s something about dining al fresco—the open air, the refreshing breeze, the freedom of being out of doors. Add delicious food and hello! You’re living your best life, whether you’re on a mountaintop or at your local park. With some pre-planning, your next date can be a picnic date—refreshing, memorable, and even keto-friendly.
Pack Hearty Keto Sandwiches for Your Picnic Date
Here at Inked Bread, we are major fans of the sandwich, obviously, and we launched our Inked Keto Bread to open a whole world of good sandwich bread for all our keto peeps. With a foundation of soft, delicious keto bread, the sky’s the limit. Gather your favorite keto-compliant meats, cheeses, and condiments to build your perfect picnic sandwiches. This Cuban Chaffle Sandwich recipe looks re-he-heally good if you need some inspiration. Not wanting to pack meaty sandwiches on your picnic? Try this Keto Veggie and Cheese Sandwich. It’s all the goodness, none of the meat.
Sandwich Alternatives for Your Picnic Date
For some tasty and filling picnic food options that aren’t sandwiches, the Pickle Sub “Sandwiches” with Turkey + Cheddar and the Cucumber “Subs” are both great options. Even if you do pack a stash of Inked Bread sandwiches, these sandwich alternatives are a delicious addition to your picnic menu.
Keto-Inspired Picnic Side Items
To compliment your keto sandwiches and other main courses, whip up some Keto Antipasto Salad or Zucchini Noodle Pasta Salad. Both are keto-compliant (but always check the individual ingredients you’re using for the sneaky sugars!). Or, pack Keto Pimento Cheese with keto crackers or toasted Inked Keto Bread for a cheesy, savory side dish.
Keto-Friendly Picnic Desserts
What’s a picnic menu without the perfect picnic dessert—cookies! Easy to make ahead and easy to eat while dining al fresco, keto cookies are the cherry on top of your keto picnic date. We found three recipes that look SO good: Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies, Keto No-Bake Peanut Butter Cookies, and Keto No-Bake Cookies. You’ll probably need to make all three in advance to test out which one you want to take on your picnic—wink wink.
Now you have everything you need to prepare a keto picnic date for you and that special someone. Of course, pack your bevvies of choice, too. If you share your amazing keto picnic featuring Inked Keto Bread on the socials, tag us at #thatsmybread!
