Meal Prep. If you ask any of my friends, they will tell you I am the Queen of meal prepping. Even more so since I started a keto diet. The only thing that’s changed now is that I keto meal prep. I cut the carbs and upped the fat to make low carb meal prep an easy success!
Keto Meal Prep Made Easy
Today I’m going to be sharing with you my secrets to meal prep success!
We’re talking everything from easy keto recipes, bulk meal prepping, my favorite kitchen appliances that make meal prepping easy, and even down to the containers I store my meal prepped food in!
Or if you’ve been doing keto for a while and just need a little help meal planning, we’ve got you covered! We now offer Keto Meal Plans and you can try a week for free! We also have a free keto meal planning facebook group that we’d love for you to join!
First let’s talk about the easiest ways to meal prep.
Meal Prep Techniques
Instant Pot Meal Prep
The Instant Pot and other pressure cookers are a great way to meal prep on a keto diet. Pressure cookers allow you to cook meals quicker than slow cookers, and they also allow you to make tough meat super tender! We love the Instant Pot so much that we actually made two keto instant pot ebooks.
Some of our favorite keto instant pot recipes to meal prep are:
- Keto Crack Chicken
- Low Carb Chili
- Garlic Broccoli Mash
- Mississippi Pot Roast
- Fall Off the Bone Beef Ribs
- Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Cream Sauce
If you love these keto pressure cooker recipes, then you sure join our Keto Instant Pot Facebook Group!
Slow Cooker Meal Prep
Slow Cookers and Crockpots are also good cooking methods for meal prep. You can prep a bunch of meals into gallon bags on the weekend and then dump them in the crockpot in the morning before work. Then you get to come home to a delicious cooked hot meal.
These are some of our favorite meals that can be prepped in a slow cooker:
Food Processor Meal Prep
Believe it or not, I do a lot of keto meal prep using my food processor! Cauliflower rice is a thousand times easier to make with a food processor than by hand-grating. It’s also a whole lot cheaper than buying either fresh or frozen cauliflower rice.
The only thing that is a pain is the clean up! But it’s a small price to pay for the convenience of using a food processor. You can also use a food processor to chop nuts, grate zucchini, make nut butter, and so much more!
Other Ways to Keto Meal Prep:
- Keto Sheet Pan Meals
- Dutch Ovens are great for low carb casseroles
- Muffin Trays for egg cups, fat bombs, and of course keto muffins
- Vitamix for smoothies and soups
Easy Keto Foods for Low Carb Meal Prep Include:
If you’re a huge fan of chicken, we wrote an entire post devoted to keto chicken meal prep that you should check out! We also have an ebook for keto freezer friendly family meals, which is perfect for meal prepping!
Once you have prepped all of your glorious keto meals, now it’s time to pack them up! I’m all about the glass containers. I tossed all of my plastic containers a few years ago and I’ve never gone back! Below are a few of my favorite glass storage containers.
- Divide glass storage containers (great for meals!)
- Medium glass storage containers (great for keto pizza and low carb casseroles)
- Small glass storage containers (great for chopped veggies, nuts and fruit)
