Low carb and keto buffet ideas

Low carb and keto buffet ideas

A generous and relaxed buffet is the perfect thing when you’re entertaining. The food can be prepared ahead of time and most guests will appreciate being able to pick and choose a plate full of personal favorites.

When planning a buffet, it’s a good idea to pick dishes that compliment each other but with a diversity so there’s something for everyone. It’s a great idea to have vegetarian, dairy-free and nut-free options.

A simple, yet elegant, option that require very little cooking is putting together a cheese platter with some seed crackers on the side, butter, cold cuts, fresh herbs, olives and vegetables with dips.

If you want to finish with a dessert or sweet treat, we recommend a few pieces of good quality dark chocolate with a high percentage of cocoa solids or filling a beautiful plate with fresh berries and mint served with home made whipped cream.

And for drinks? Fill up your best pitchers with flavored water or iced tea. They are great thirst quenchers and can serve as beautiful table decorations at the same time. Check out our visual guides to learn more about carbs in different beverages.

Pies are great buffet items. Make up a few batches of the crust and let you imagination do the work when it comes to filling them. If you’re looking for a vegetarian alternative we suggest our avocado pie, it’s delicious.
