Summer is coming up and that means it’s time for picnics and BBQ’s! I think one of the things many people struggle with on keto is finding some good side dishes to serve your friends and family. Most ‘regular’ side dishes contain a high amount of carbs (like rice), so we’ll need to find something that’s vegetable based but equally delicious. 

Looking around the internet, I found a few favs and now it’s time to compile a list of great keto side dishes that will curb your cravings and bring your BBQ up to a 11!
