Keto and Low Carb at Panera Bread. Yes I know what you are thinking. What Can I order that is Keto and Low Carb at Panera Bread? I am here to help you with that! You do not have to skip going to Panera Bread just because you are eating keto or eating low carb!
Hopefully with this list of Keto and Low Carb options at Panera Bread you find it easier to order a menu item that you will enjoy, that still fits in your nutritional goals for the day. Panera offers some pretty good options that don’t take much extra work when you are ordering Keto at Panera or Low carb at Panera.
Keto and Low Carb at Panera Bread
Sticking to your Keto and Low Carb at Panera bread is not as hard as it sounds like it is going to be. There are plenty of low carb choices at Panera Bread and plenty of Keto choices at Panera Bread.
Just like with any fast food dining, I don’t suggest making it your normal diet. Panera unlike many fast food places has a lot of fresh food options that are healthy with out having to take much away from the foods that you enjoyed before eating keto or low carb.
Normally I carry Keto Snacks with me, but to be honest I don’t always want to eat the snacks that I have with me. There are also times that running around with the kids, that I forget my snacks. And sometimes I just want to enjoy a meal I don’t have to cook. So being aware of my options at different restaurants is important to me. You can see the full list of Keto and Low Carb restaurant guides at the end of this blog post.
The biggest tip I have for you is to skip the breads, rolls, bagels, cookies and soups. If you are wanting soup, skip their soups and make some Keto Broccoli Cheddar Soup at home. It tastes just like Panera’s but is perfectly keto friendly.

You can enjoy several breakfast options while sticking to keto and low carb when you are at Panera Bread. When you are ordering a breakfast sandwich at Panera bread, just ask for it with no bread. It is super simple!
Since you are taking the bread away from the sandwich, you will end up with a tasty breakfast bowl! I suggest doubling the eggs when you are ordering to make your meal more filling.

Eating lunch and dinner is fairly easy, even though you might expect it not to be. Ditching the bread when ordering a sandwich is the quickest way to ditch the high amount of carbs. There are somethings that you will want to totally avoid, like the soup I said before. Not just the soup in a bread bowl, but all the soups. The carb count on all the Panera Bread soups is high.
