Keto/Low Carb Meal Plan Week 2

· · · ·

After asking both my Easy Keto/Low Carb Recipe Page and my Keto/Low Carb Challenge Group on Facebook if posting my meal plan this week would be helpful and getting such a positive response, I got right to work. As I have mentioned before, I am not a super structured person so if you are looking for something organized; I am not your girl. However, if you are looking for simple and family-friendly meal ideas, I can help. I know it is so easy to get overwhelmed when beginning to follow a Keto or Low Carb lifestyle; however, it doesn’t have to be. I always cook extra, so I have enough leftovers to cover lunch. I don’t always eat breakfast, but usually, try to keep bacon already prepared in the fridge, so I have something to grab if I don’t have time to cook. If you are just getting started meal prepping and aren’t sure where to start, check out 5 Easy Keto/Low Carb Meal Prep Ideas. Whether you are following a ketogenic diet or low carb you can modify the meal plan to best fit your needs. For example, if you are low carb, you’ll want to leave off the bulletproof coffee and some of the added fats.

You can access all of my Keto/Low Carb Recipes in my Keto/Low Carb Recipe Index or follow me on Pinterest for fabulous Keto/Low Carb Recipe Ideas. If you are just getting started following a keto diet and would like more information, there are tons of fantastic resources. Amazon has several great books you may want to check out here.

 

Monday

Breakfast – Bulletproof coffee and the ham, egg, and cheese off of a biscuit (my inlaws are in town and brought the kids and me breakfast this morning I ate meat, egg, and cheese out of the biscuit and gave the baby the biscuit.)

Lunch – leftover hamburger patty, grilled zucchini, and pickles

Dinner – Keto Chicken Pot Pie

Tuesday

Breakfast – Tuesday is our homeschool group day that I attend with my kids. Since it is a busy morning, I typically drink a cup of coffee and eat 3 to 4 slices of bacon on the way out the door.

Lunch – Tomorow is our last day of homeschool group for this school year, and we are celebrating with pizza. I love that it isn’t a big deal for me to eat the toppings off of the pizza. I don’t have to pack a sad lunch and watch everyone else pizza.

Dinner – Keto Pot Roast in the Crock-Pot (Instant Pot Instructions here)
I plan on throwing all the ingredients in my Crock-Pot before heading out to homeschool group.

Wednesday

Breakfast – Bulletproof Coffee
If I get hungry, I have Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins in the fridge, and possibly bacon left over from the day before if my kids don’t eat it all.

Lunch – leftovers (either Chicken Pot Pie or Pot Roast)

Dinner – We eat out on Wednesday night so that we can get to church on time

Thursday

Breakfast – Bulletproof Coffee

Lunch – Hot Ham & Cheese Unwich Casserole

Dinner – I will either work on creating a new recipe or we will have Taco Thursday using my daughter’s recipe for The Very Best Taco Meat it will depend on how my day goes. If we go the Taco route, my hubby and I will eat ours on a bed of lettuce, and we will crumble baked cheese on top. (You can follow this recipe for cheese crackers.) I know you can make taco shells out of baked cheese, but this is so much easier, and it tastes exactly the same.

Friday

Breakfast – Bulletproof Coffee

Lunch – We will finish off leftovers from the Chicken Pot Pie, Keto Pot Roast, and the Hot Ham & Cheese Unwich Casserole. My goal is to cook and eat all of the food I buy each week so that by Sunday my fridge is empty.

Dinner – We have a super busy afternoon planned so I will either order takeout from Chili’s (the hubs and I eat their chicken fajitas without tortillas and a side salad), or I’ll pick up pizza and eat the toppings off of it. If I pick up pizza, I’ll throw together a nice garden salad so we can get our veggies.

Saturday

Late Breakfast – Bacon, eggs, and Sausage Ball Puffs or Keto French Toast (family recipe here or individual recipe here for the French Toast)

Lunch – I doubt I will get hungry, but if I do then I’ll eat leftovers from dinner Thursday night. (either the new recipe or taco meat)

Dinner – Weather permitting I think I’ll grill some hamburgers and eat a bunless burger with Brussels Sprouts cooked with Bacon
