For those of you who haven’t fallen off your New Year’s resolution yet, or if you fumbled a bit and you’re trying to get back on track, I picked up on a savings hack at a locally owned Twin Falls fast food restaurant. If you're dieting in the keto, low-carb, or carnivore realm, check this out.

Yes, you can do Keto, low carb, or carnivore at a fast food restaurant

Food purists will tell you that if you want to diet right, there’s zero room for fast food in your plan. I suggest you let them sit on their throne of pasture-raised, all-organic, grass-fed stuff all they want. I eat clean when I can, but I'm also a realist. If you’re on a budget, or you’re just plain busy, I wouldn’t let a food snob stand in the way of your goals just because they don’t like your choice of food sources. I'm not a dietitian or a doctor, so consult them for your health plans. 

Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t keto at a fast-food restaurant

For several reasons, I avoid bread and dairy. (I love them, they don’t love me) The challenge is, I don’t always have the time to prep or cook and sometimes I just need to grab something on the go. You might not be aware, but you can order just about any component off of the McDonald’s breakfast menu a la carte. And on a couple of occasions, I’ve snagged a quick keto breakfast by ordering two round eggs and sausage patties. Usually, the total comes out to $7.76 with tax, which is just fine by me in today’s economy. Here's my receipt, and keep scrolling for a quick hack that'll really make it cheap. 

Hack that will save you a few bucks on a low-carb breakfast at a Twin Falls McDonalds.

$7.76 for breakfast isn’t bad at all, but if you want to save more, check out this hack I discovered. Instead of ordering a la carte, order a Sausage and Egg McMuffin, but hold the cheese and muffin. (Or keep the cheese if it suits you). Right now, McDonald’s is featuring a BOGO for a dollar on their breakfast sandwiches. That means the equivalent of the same order of two eggs and two patties, will total just $4.49 with tax. Congratulations, you just saved $3.27. It’s only a few bucks but if you did this every day for five days, you’d save $16.75.  You’re welcome.

All good things come to an end
