If you’re having trouble balancing your life between work, school, family, friends, and trying to eat healthy, you’re not alone. That’s definitely a common issue facing tons of others on keto, including myself. However, these 16 keto dinner recipes will be extremely helpful in helping you cut down on cooking time, while still allowing you to enjoy a good home-cooked keto meal!
I know that balancing life can be hard… being a healthy and responsible adult isn’t fun ALL the time, and sometimes almost impossible. However, nothing is impossible if divided into small parts, right?
One part of life is eating, and if you’re like me, you want to eat good, wholesome keto food that will help your body stay healthy. I can help with this because I’ve found some great super easy keto recipes that I think you’ll absolutely love! These recipes are ketogenic, paleo, and take less than an hour to prepare. That way, you’re spending more time catching up on quality time with the family, work, or just straight chillin’ on the couch after a hard day.
Now, are you ready to score some serious keto points with these quick and easy keto dinners? Ready, set, go!
Yes, a classic home cooked recipe, keto style! To make these super speedy, just use romaine lettuce instead of the keto buns. Remember to stock up lots of napkins!
Talk about easy… done in 15 minutes including prep time! The great thing about stir-fries is that they also don’t require a lot of dishes. Less time doing dishes means more time doing what I want to do, so keto on with this ridiculously easy keto stir fry!
And we have another fast one! This shrimp salad is another great option for a throw-together dinner that takes less than 20 minutes to get ready. I absolutely love this recipe and hope you do, too.
Now, this is a great 30-minute recipe that you can customize based on your personal preference. Just choose your favorite meat and low-carb veggies to add a little personal flair. Also, butter/ghee can be replaced with avocado oil to be dairy-free.
Salmon is such a great keto protein! Awesome health benefits, and it tastes delicious. Simple with a side of steamed broccoli and cauliflower, this will definitely be a family favorite from now on.
Of course, this roundup would not be complete without a keto breakfast dinner. With this recipe, you can spend more time eating and enjoying the food rather than preparing it. Also, butter/ghee can be replaced with avocado oil to be dairy-free.
I know what you’re thinking… meatballs? Seriously? Well, if you want to speed things up, I would suggest skipping the meatball-forming part of this recipe, and just toss the bacon and ground chicken into the skillet. All the great taste without all the mess and time forming balls of chicken meat, keto win-win!
These sound awesome, right? Coconut and chicken make a great quick keto combo! A new family favorite in the making.
Speaking of coconut, here’s another great coconut keto recipe but with steak! It’s hard to go wrong when it comes to a good steak for dinner.
Craving some tacos? These keto tacos are great for a quick throw-together meal for the whole family or with a bunch of friends. ¡Qué deliciosa!
When you’re in a rush, the best recipes seem to be ones that involve tossing everything into a bowl. And that’s just what this keto recipe does! For dairy-free, you can use dairy-free cheese and replace the sour cream with extra guacamole.
Salmon is one of those super awesome healthy meals that are great for ketogenic living, and it won’t take you very long to make either. Less than 30 minutes and you’ve got a great meal to enjoy! For dairy-free, you can add extra mayo to replace the sour cream.
In less than 30 minutes, a scrumptious meal awaits you! Everything’s better with bacon, right? Well, if that’s the case, then this keto meal is definitely a winner.
Forego the stress from planning a fancy, time-consuming meal, and instead, you can prepare this incredibly easy meal and still impress your family and friends. They will all gasp and admire your elegant cooking skills, thinking you probably slaved in the kitchen for hours. If only they knew. For dairy-free, the butter can be replaced with butter flavored coconut oil and the whipping cream can be replaced with coconut cream.
These flavorful beef wraps are a great keto dinner idea because they taste delicious and they take less than half an hour to get ready. Enjoy!
Nothing says quick and simple like chicken nuggets! The great thing is that these are healthy and low-carb… no mystery meat and your family will thank you. Or you can enjoy chowing down on them without sharing with anyone, your choice!
