50+ delicious easy keto dinner recipes for busy weeknights. Chill out friends, we’ve got this! These simple and healthy low carb dinners are sure to please the whole family.
Hey there, friend, you look busy. You ARE busy, what with work and family and other social obligations.
Seems to me that you could use a nice big collection of keto dinner ideas to streamline your hectic life. Am I right?
Of course I am. That’s why I put together this awesome list of easy keto dinners. Because you know what? I am just like you. I’m busy, and overwhelmed, and I need more easy ideas too.
Simplify your keto diet routine
We all have a knack for making things unnecessarily complicated sometimes.
Who doesn’t, right? You automatically think things are going to have more steps or require more work than they actually do. And you automatically think you have more time to do it than you really do.
But weeknight dinners need to be easy. We’re all so busy these days, none of us have the time or the inclination to spend hours in the kitchen preparing a gourmet keto meal.
Well, my friends, I wrote the book on Easy Keto Dinners (quite literally!), and I want to help you streamline the process and make things easier for you and your family.
One of the most important components of creating easy keto recipes is having the right ingredients on hand. My comprehensive list of keto pantry staples is designed to help you identify the basics.
Stock your freezer with plenty of hearty protein like ground beef and chicken thighs.
And make sure you have a good selection of fresh and frozen vegetables. Frozen cauliflower rice and pre-cut zucchini noodles are a godsend for quick keto meals.
I also recommend having eggs, cream cheese, cheese, and bacon in the fridge. And plenty of spices and herbs for flavor.
When it comes to easy keto dinner ideas, it’s important to consider the method in which the dish is being cooked. Is there a lot of prep work? Do you need to stand there stirring constantly? Or can you just dump in all the ingredients and attend to other concerns?
Don’t be fooled by overall cooking time. Prep time is a much better indicator of how easy a recipe is. Recipes that take hours in a slow cooker sometimes require much less active work than one that takes 30 minutes in a skillet.
Some of my favorite quick recipes are soups, casseroles, and stir fry.
Utilize your Instant Pot or air fryer, if you have them. They can really cut down on the time it takes to get a healthy dinner to the table.
