QUICK KETO MEAL RECIPES
Dairy-Free Cream of Chicken Soup
This recipe is super tasty and super good for you. The Beef Gelatin heals and restores while being super versatile in how you use it. Gotta love easy keto!
Chipotle Lime Shrimp and Zucchini Noodles
No time to waste! Believe it or not, you can throw this keto recipe together in under 30 minutes. This means more time to go places, see people, or just relaxing with your friends and family… score!
Easy Keto Thai Skillet Chicken
This keto meal gets bonus points for using just one dish for easy and fast cleanup. If you don’t have much time to cook, you certainly don’t have much time to clean! Even if you do have time, who wants to clean lots of dishes really?
Simple. This recipe has FOUR keto ingredients people. You can’t get much simpler than that for a meal. Lining the dish with a baking sheet will aid in the post-meal cleanup, too!
Chipotle Lime Roasted Broccoli & Cauliflower
Tired of meat, but want to stay keto, low-carb, and high-fat? Taste these veggies, and you won’t be able to stop! This can double as a fun snack since it’s so unbelievably easy.
Good ol’ egg salad…with bacon. Bacon makes everything better, but this egg salad is already great without it. It’s also very budget-friendly and makes quite a bit, so it’s perfect for potlucks and large gatherings (woohoo!).
Whether you’re rushing to whip something up last minute or just not feeling like putting lots of time into preparing food, this meal is just what you may need. Definitely worth keeping on your keto meal plan! Just replace the butter with coconut oil to keep it non-dairy.
Lemongrass Chicken with Cilantro Cauliflower Rice
Fancy a little Asian cuisine? This recipe cuts down on all of the unnecessary sugar that has creeped into today’s food without sacrificing the awesomeness. This is a fantastic keto recipe, but I recommend not adding the optional molasses.
Another awesome keto Asian cuisine option! The sesame seed oil is the not-so-secret ingredient that makes this dish truly amazing. Keto on, folks!
The Paleo Kitchen’s Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs
Let this be a warning… if you make these, they will disappear very fast. No kidding, so make sure you make enough! Serve on shaved jicama with olive oil for a complete keto meal (and also to look fancy). To stay keto-friendly, you could replace the honey with stevia.
Whoever said keto has to be super difficult? Spice it up with some buffalo wings! Great for parties…or anytime you can find an excuse to make them! I recommend replacing the butter with coconut oil to stay dairy-free.
Creamy Curry Low-Carb, Keto Noodle Bowl
Can it really be? A dish so delicious yet… healthy? Yes. And it’s keto-friendly! As a warning, don’t be surprised if you become strongly addicted to the “curry crack sauce” that makes the dish oh-so-good.
Here’s another great keto vegetarian option, but you can always add a meat patty between two of the zucchini patties to make a zucchini burger for all you meat-lovers. As a side note, I would opt for the almond flour to make it lower in carbs and more keto-friendly.
There’s a lot that you can add to this meal, but if you want to keep it quick and simple, the meatballs take less than half an hour. Quick and keto… sounds good to me!
For a quick and easy keto breakfast, try this recipe out! That way you can quickly cook, grab, and set off on your summer adventures for the day. For dairy-free options, leave off the sour cream and replace the cheddar cheese with Daiya shreds.
Okay, it’s summer. And in the summer, it’s sometimes hard to motivate yourself to actually cook. With this recipe, though, you don’t have to work in a hot kitchen. Just toss this delectable keto salad together and enjoy your summer!
Now you’re all set for a hassle-free, adventure-filled, and keto-fueled summer… ready, set, and GO!
