Tips For Lazy Keto Meal Prep

To save the most time, try these tips when you make lazy keto meals:

  • Use Prepared Ingredients – Get pre-chopped veggies, shredded chicken, pre-shredded cheeses, and prepared sauces like ranch dressing for maximum time savings. (Or, make them ahead yourself!)
  • Choose Simple Recipes – Pick easy, all-in-one meals or pair very simple mains with basic sides.
  • Double Recipes, Then Freeze For Later – Freezing leftovers makes lazy keto diet meals come together even faster the second time around.
  • Lazy Doesn’t Always Mean “Dirty”Dirty keto and lazy keto are not always the same thing. You can restrict your carbohydrates, make super simple meals, and eat clean foods at the same time.
  • Try Intermittent Fasting – Fasting means fewer meals to plan, and it has many benefits when paired with a lazy keto lifestyle. If this is too hard or doesn’t work with your schedule, you could also just do coffee with cream (or bulletproof coffee) for breakfast.
