This week’s Easy Keto Meal Plan includes 5 EASY low-carb meals plus a keto-friendly meal prep breakfast! This guide is complete with net carb counts and a printable shopping list.
Each week I’m trying to help take the stress out of a keto diet by giving you FIVE keto dinners plus some bonus meal prep recipe that helps keep you on track! This week every meal is either ready in 20-35 minutes or it cooks all day in the slow cooker while you do your thing!
When you click through to each individual recipe, it’ll take you to the full, detailed, step-by-step instructions. This includes a printable recipe card that includes nutrition information! At the bottom of this post, you’ll find a printable meal plan (with space to fill in your own needs & weekend plans) as well as an organized grocery list to help make things even easier.
At the bottom of the post, I include meal prep tips for each recipe in case you like to do most of your cooking during the weekend or before meal times. Even if you can’t prepare everything in advance, it sure makes the evenings go smoother when part of dinner is already done!
So sit back and relax! No need to stress about what to cook. I’m taking care of keto dinner plans!
Breakfast: Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze
These Strawberry Pancakes are SO good and super easy to meal prep! You can make a large batch and freeze or store them in the fridge if you’ll get through them all this week. Each pancake is 2.3 net carbs (including a teaspoon of delicious glaze!), so a big stack of 3 pancakes would still come in under 7 net carbs!

Keto Meal Prep Tips:
For many people, meal prepping on the weekend helps the week go much smoother! Here are some tips in case you’d like to spend a little time prepping your meals and spending less time cooking during the week!
If you are using the slow cooker method for the chili, go ahead and put all ingredients (except cream, cream cheese, and shredded cheese) in the slow cooker (or a bowl/plastic bag) the night before. and leave it in the fridge. In the morning, just plug it in (or dump the container in the slow cooker) and walk away! You could even measure out your heavy cream, cream cheese, and shredded cheese, put those in a covered bowl, and they’ll be ready to add once you get home and remove the cooked chicken!
You can make the pizza stuffing up to 3 days before serving! Cook your Italian sausage and mix it with the marinara, pepperoni, and half the cheese. A day before serving, you can prep the peppers by cutting and de-seeding. Just store in a bag or covered container, then fill with the sausage mixture and top with cheese when ready to cook!
This dish could be cooked entirely, then reheated and served up to 3 days later. Store covered in the fridge, then cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees F until warmed throughout (about 10 minutes). Alternatively, you could cook the chicken and veggies on your prep day and store those in the fridge, then make your cheese sauce and finish on Wednesday!
You could make the cheeseburger filling up to four days before serving. Store covered in the fridge, then fill zucchini boats and bake on Thursday. Zucchini boats can be cut and hollowed out up to one day beforehand and stored in a bag or closed container in the fridge.
You could make the sauce up to one week before cooking, just store in a tight jar in the fridge. Broccoli and peppers could be chopped 1-2 days before cooking as well. I wouldn’t recommend cooking the shrimp until ready to serve to make sure they don’t end up overcooked.
