Followers of the ketogenic diet likely experience vivid daydreams in which lust-worthy, carb-heavy dishes are suddenly concocted entirely by healthy fats that are compliant with the plan. This is because the buzzy diet calls for limiting your carb intake to 30 grams a day or less, thus nixing many of your bread-y favorites. (Bye, pizza! Bye, non-cauliflower pasta!) But if you’re meal-prepping for the week ahead, there’s a totally genius way to add a satisfying crunch to your protein of choice without forfeiting your keto-status.

The brilliant keto-compliant hack created by Redditor (and keto-wizard) u/daphnia_dubia calls for crushing Whisps Cheese Crisps bread crumbs—which contain just 1 gram of carbohydrates, 10 to 13 grams of protein, and 11 grams of fat per serving—into tiny bits that easily adhere to your a slab of protein. “I love Whisps, but I do not love wasting all of the crumbs at the bottom, so I have been using them in various ways,” the Redditor writes.

Whisps Cheese Crisps currently come in five delish flavors: Asiago and pepper jack, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, BBQ bacon cheddar, tomato basil, and variety cheese.

Better yet, the topping currently comes in five delish flavors: Asiago and pepper jack, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, BBQ bacon cheddar, tomato basil, and variety cheese. So if you tire of Italian-inspired chicken breast, you can easily make the switch to Southern-style.

Besides patting the crumbs onto meat, the user also suggests adding them to casseroles as a “binder of sorts” than can add some much-needed texture to your oven-baked veggies. TBH, the Whisps are so versatile, that you could probably use them in a whole a host of other ways to add them to keto-adhering menu, too. Blackberry Whisp cobbler, anyone?

(Day)dreams do come true.
