Keto Friendly Restaurants in Knoxville

Following a ketogenic diet while living in the south can be tricky, especially while surrounded by fried foods and various types of potatoes, but thanks to the health-conscious people of Knoxville, it is possible.

One option for delicious keto food is Wise Guys Pizza Kitchen, where a thick-crust cauliflower pizza exists to give those dieting a fix for the popular comfort food. The Kingston Pike store offers the cauliflower crust at eight inches, the perfect personal size to enjoy while the family is eating their full-carb substitutes. In a world where keto folk often have to cook up their own low-carb pizzas, Wise Guys offers a much-needed break from the kitchen.

In South Knoxville, a gluten-free bakery serves up some convenient options to fit the keto lifestyle. Although Mama C’s Gluten-Free Goodies specialize in treats for those with Celiac Disease, the bakery also offers peanut-butter chocolate cookies and lemon cookies to comply with ketogenic standards. The newly-opened store on Chapman Highway also makes a killer keto pumpkin cheesecake upon request.

In numerous Knoxville locations, Salsarita’s Fresh Mexican Grill seems to exist to make life easier for keto dieters. While the option for taco shells is certainly available, those watching carb count can opt for a burrito bowl to fill full of ketogenic fillings. The process starts with a choice of meat, followed by a choice of rice and beans that must be avoided. After that, the bowl can be filled with lettuce, vegetables, cheese, tomato, and more to build the perfect combination. The best part? The Salsarita’s website will tell you the exact carb count after entering the ingredients of your burrito bowl into the nutrition calculator.

Home of the “unwich,” Jimmy John’s understands that burgers can be tasty without the unnecessary bread. That’s why the company prides itself in creating a sandwich wrapped in lettuce for low-carb dieters to enjoy. With five locations in or around the Knoxville area, including one in Cedar Bluff and Cumberland, it’s not hard to find this lettuce-wrapped delicacy when craving a quick fix. Luckily for those with complex cravings, any sandwich in the restaurant’s roster can be made “unwich-style.”

Located on Kingston Pike, Brazeiros Steakhouse may be a bit on the expensive side, but it is well-worth it to cleanse a keto palette with high quality expectations. The Brazilian experience begins with a self-serve salad bar followed by an essentially all-you-can-eat meat buffet brought directly to the table. The menu is in the diner’s control as various types of protein is brought out one-by-one and controlled by a “go” and “stop” sign on the table. Keto dieters are nothing short of carnivores, so the slew of meat is on par for the guests who must stay within a carb range.

For those who prefer to cook, Knoxville is also home to the incredible Whole Foods, a place where keto options are abundant albeit more expensive than a typical Kroger. Located on Papermill Drive, Whole Foods Market has So Delicious dairy-free ice cream, which is low carb and comes in several flavors. So Delicious also makes ice cream sandwiches and bars for those searching for something sweet. Sugar-free chocolate chips and candy bars also line the racks as well as a variety of nuts and low-carb snacks. In the nut department, Brazil Nuts offer a low-carb and high-fat fix that will fit ketogenic macros perfectly. The list of wonders at Whole Foods Market would take another article to fully explain, so it is best to explore yourself, making sure to check nutrition facts as you go.

Even though living down south is enough to make even the most hardcore dieters falter, Knoxville makes it easier than ever to stick to a successful ketogenic diet despite the temptations that surround nearby. With the abundant options for food accompanied with mass amounts of gyms, those looking to hit their goal weights will have no trouble at all, as long as their will-power permits it.
