Our favorite Instant Pot keto recipes include keto chili, Chicken Taco Soup, and Jalapeño Popper Soup. Just follow the instructions carefully and use the appropriate cooking times and settings for each recipe.

One-Skillet Wonders

Another great way to make quick and easy keto dinners is using one-skillet recipes. These dishes are perfect for busy weeknights when you don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen. Plus, they’re easy to clean up since you only have one pan to wash.

We love one-skillet keto recipes! Some of our favorites include Keto Cheesy Mexican Chicken, Low-Carb Chicken Pot Pie, and Keto Beef and Broccoli Stir-fry. Just be sure to use a non-stick skillet and watch the heat to avoid burning your food.

Keto Meal Planning and Prep

When following a Keto diet, meal planning and prep are crucial. Not only does it help you stay on track with your macros, but it also saves time and ensures that you always have a healthy meal ready to go.

Batch Cooking and Storage

Batch cooking is one of the best ways to make meal prep quick and easy. This involves cooking large portions of your favorite Keto recipes and storing them for later use. This way, you can have a healthy meal ready in just a few minutes.

To do this, start by selecting a few quick Keto meals that you enjoy and that fit your macros. Prepare all the necessary ingredients and cook them in large batches. Once cooked, divide them into individual portions and store them in the fridge or freezer.

When ready to eat, reheat your prepared ingredients and enjoy a healthy meal in minutes. Additionally, this is a great way to ensure you always have a Keto appetizer or snack.

To make things even easier, consider investing in some meal prep containers. These containers are perfect for storing your prepared meals, making it easy to grab and go when you’re in a hurry.

Meal planning and prep can be helpful when following a low-carb or Keto diet. By batch cooking and storing your prepared ingredients, you can save time and ensure you always have a healthy meal ready.

    1. Jayne, I have checked both of my newsletter lists and your email address isn’t on either one of them. I don’t know what email you are receiving since you aren’t on any of my lists, but if someone else is sending you emails from a different blog there should be an unsubscribe button at the bottom of every email that you can click.

  2. Hi Kasey! Have you ever considered putting together a recipe book for people like me who prefer to have a physical copy to hold and turn pages rather than an online copy? I think it would be a real hit. I’d be your first customer!

    1. Shelly, thanks so much for your kind words. In this season on life, I’m not sure it is something I could tackle. Perhaps in the future. 🙂

    2. Totally understandable! Something to really think about, but in the meantime, I’ll continue following your wonderful recipes and Keto on!

    1. Yes, you can but will need to use 4x as much almond flour. I always use coconut flour because my oldest daughter has a severe nut allergy.

  3. Hello Kasey, my wife and I are both retired and grew up eating anything we liked, steak, fried foods of all kinds, pasta, potatoes (baked, fried, mashed, scalloped etc.), pizza, pancakes, etc. We are now 3 weeks into trying Keto. Since retirement I do most of the cooking and that consisted mostly of comfort foods. I stumbled across one of your recipes, Spaghetti squash lasagna. I have never eaten spaghetti squash in my life, let alone cook it. But I have always been a gambler, so I gave it a try and voila, we loved it. I have since made the blueberry chaffles, the cheese garlic chaffles, the low carb keto bread and we have been pleasantly surprised with each and everyone. I will be trying many more. Thank you so much for the recipes.

  4. I thought I saw a recipe for Pork Chops done in the crockpot, but I can’t find it anywhere. Is there such a recipe? Would really appreciate getting it if it exists.

    1. Hi! I included information in the blog post about preparing the pork chops in a crock pot and then making the sauce in a skillet when they are done. For your convenience, I’ve included the direct link below. Make sure to look for the heading titled “Can You Make Keto Pork Chops in the Slow Cooker?” You’ll find the details there. Hope this helps.
