Make ahead – Meal prep

22606-20882402_1773555416005836_9112368232737913274_n

Sometime the key to success with keto is having something to grab when you need it. Meal prepping and ready to go foods can help.

I don’t personally pre-make my meals (lots of people do though) I don’t know what I want to eat an hour from now, let alone a week from now. Mostly I prep the ingredients so they are ready when I need them.

❄️ = Easy to freeze

  • I boil a batch of eggs for deviled eggs, egg salad, to be sliced on salads or just to eat by themselves.
  • ❄️ I bake or fry a pound or 2 of bacon, it goes on sandwiches, on vegetables, or with breakfast.
  • ❄️ I make bagels or breads for sandwiches and toast.
  • ❄️ Batches of cookies or fat bombs thrown in the freezer can help a sweet tooth on a moments notice.
  • Chia pudding can be breakfast or dessert, I almost always have a container made.
  • I pre-cut vegetables to be eaten with dips or thrown in a salad.
  • ❄️ If I make soup, I will make a bigger batch so I can freeze it in serving size portions to take to work or even give a friend to try.
  • ❄️ Pancakes or waffles can be made and frozen for future use.

  • ❄️ Muffins can make a snack, breakfast or even dessert.
  • ❄️ Even meatballs or sausage balls can be made ahead to add to “pasta” or a veggie plate.
  • “Potato” salad can be added to lunch or dinner as an easy side dish if it’s pre-made.
  • ❄️ Omelette muffins can be made ahead for breakfast.
  • I also keep deli meats, sliced cheese and cream cheese for roll-ups and sandwiches.
  • Frozen or fresh riced cauliflower can make meal time faster and easier (I avoid the premashed though, it tends to have non-keto ingredients)
  • Sometime I portion out things like nuts and seeds so I can grab a serving, portions can get away from you if you aren’t prepared.

I have all the sizes of ziplock bags to help portion out my foods.

I use disposable condiment cups to make and take things with me, too.

Besides all the little things I do to be ready for meals, number one is I make extra dinner so I can have it for lunches.
