Eat this much – What is a healthy amount to eat?
Best tips for meal preparation. Easier and quicker than ever before.
The health benefits one can receive from the keto diet are absolutely worth the work that goes into preparing meals. Learning how to meal plan for a keto diet is fairly simple too. Though it has a fair number of restrictions, these keto meal prep ideas will show you how versatile, and yummy, this diet can be.
Vegetables like zucchini, spinach, cucumber, and asparagus are all keto staples. Take some time at the beginning of each week to make sure you have them all set for the days to come. Though if you’d rather, you can always use the zucchini to make noodles instead!
Measure out the wet and dry ingredients, refrigerating the former and storing the latter and room temperature. The bread can serve well as a base for many dishes you might want to make later in the week.
Use the ingredients list as a master copy, writing down absolutely everything you know you’re going to need for the week. After you’ve done that, go through your fridge, freezer, and pantry and cross off anything you already have. What remains is your grocery list, tailor made to ensure you only buy exactly what you need.
Whether it needs to be shredded, sliced, cubed, or something else, take care of it early on. Roast any unchopped asparagus with some cheese on top, or use it to make a no-crust pizza.
The possibilities for what can be done with eggs are seemingly endless, even with the restrictions that the keto diet places. Hard boil plenty ahead of time and you’ll be all set to make egg salad, deviled eggs, and so much more. And speaking of eggs…
Put some of those eggs and cheese together to make a frittata. Cut it into wedges and refrigerate to enjoy throughout the week. Or set the ingredients aside to make later on. It’s a fairly quick and simple recipe, after all.
There’s a misconception that any food that’s part of a ‘diet’ is bland or awful-tasting. That certainly isn’t true of the keto diet, it has many potent and savory dishes, but a little more flavor can’t hurt, right? Measure out any dry herbs and spices you’ll need, and chop up any fresh herbs to put into a food processor for an herb paste.
