Keto Turkey Club Sandwich

Enjoy the classic flavors of a Turkey Club Sandwich without the carbs! This Keto Turkey Club has less than 5 net carbs per serving and is great for a low carb lunch!

What is a Turkey Club Sandwich?

A Turkey Club is a beloved sandwich that is a staple at pretty much any sandwich joint. This classic combination of deli turkey, crisp bacon, sliced cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise is hard to beat. Most often, you see a turkey club on toasted white bread, piled high with all the fixings and sliced into four triangles.

For this recipe, I’m serving up a club sandwich on low carb chaffles instead of traditional white bread. That makes this Turkey Club low carb, grain free and gluten free.

Ingredients for a Turkey Club

As always, this is a quick overview of the ingredients you will need for this recipe. To get the complete recipe just keep scrolling.

  • Deli Turkey: shaved, thinly sliced or thick slices will work. Use your favorite variety such as oven roasted, buffalo or cajun turkey.
  • Bacon: cooked, crisp bacon.
  • Lettuce: romaine, iceberg or Bibb lettuce works in this recipe.
  • Tomato: your favorite variety.
  • Mayonnaise: preferably Hellmann’s.
  • Chaffles: this is a keto waffle, that is an excellent low carb, gluten free bread substitute.

Tips for the best Keto Club Sandwich

  • Be sure your chaffles are cooked to a crisp consistency so they are able to hold all of the ingredients
  • Use fresh tomatoes and lettuce, so they are nice and ripe for the best flavor
  • If you prefer, you can add salt or pepper to your keto club sandwich
  • Be sure to drain your bacon after cooking

BEST KETO TIPS EVER:

No fruit, unless it’s berries in moderation…
No wheat
No sugar
No grains
No pasta
No potatoes
No rice
No beans
No starches
No milk as it’s loaded with sugar. ( unsweetened almond milk is recommended.)
HWC (Heavy whipping cream) is good in coffee or whatever you would like to use it for.
Meat, cheese, eggs, vegetable, nuts, and healthy fats. It’s simple. Stick to that, and you should be ok!
Focus on avoiding unmodified/processed or altered foods as you never know what’s in them.
Vegetables that should be avoided are…
Sweet potatoes
Corn
Peas
Potatoes
Carrots – can be used in moderation, just don’t go over board. They are full of starches and not recommended.
Make sure to drink half your body weight In oz of water as well if you aren’t getting the adequate amount of water it can be bad for your kidneys! This applies for all forms of keto.
Do not forget your electrolytes, they are needed daily.
A good form of electrolytes is:
Powerade zero
Pickle juice
Pink Himalayan salt added to your food
Strict keto – counts all macros, do not eat processed foods.
Lazy keto – doesn’t track all macros, still eats processed foods, as long as they are on plan
Macros are a break down of the calories you intake for the day. Which should be…
5% carbs
20% protein
75% fat
Carb manager is a great app to track macros
Carbs are a limit – try not to go over your carb limit.
Fat is a lever – you don’t have to meet your fat macro, it’s simply there to help you get full.
Protein is a goal- try your best to reach your protein goal, but try not to go over. Excessive amounts of protein can cause you to stall in weight loss.
Anything other than this food group selection would be considered low carb. Also, if you are in ketosis, and eat outside of this food group not only could it take you out of ketosis, but it could spike your blood sugar! Which can make you sick.
Hope this helps. 😊

• Beef- Ground beef, Steak, Ribs, and Roasts

Dressings/Condiments/Fats

• G. Hughes brand sugar free BBQ sauce
• Yellow/Spicy Brown Mustard
• Soy sauce
• Hot sauce
Liquids: Use as base for sauces/soups

• Pepperoni
• Slim Jims/jerky (watch carbs)
• Homemade cheese its/ tortilla chips
• Cheese
• Pork rinds (0 carbs, very versatile. Can be used)
I also do intermittent fasting (after month 1) – I personally prefer the 16:8 method. I eat from 11 am until 7 pm. From 7 om until 11 am the next day, I have nothing but water. I also randomly throw in 24, 48 or 72 hour fasts every few months.
You will find you are not hungry once you are in ketosis.
Signs of being in ketosis: THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE!
– Bad headache after 1st week – known as keto flu (see electrolyte suggestions above to get rid of it)
– Metal taste or bad taste in mouth
– Body odor that is stronger than normal
