Bonus Breakfast: Keto Pumpkin Muffins
These delicious Keto Pumpkin Muffins are only 5 net carbs each and are the PERFECT way to celebrate the first full week of fall! These reheat wonderfully (and are delicious at room temperature), so you can enjoy them all week long.
Monday: Keto Lasagna Skillet
This one-pan Keto Lasagna Skillet is a fantastic way to start the week! Ready in 30 minutes without the usual layering work involved in a lasagna. It makes 6 servings at 4.3 net carbs each and reheats wonderfully for lunch!
Tuesday: Keto Lobster Bisque
Wow, look at you, fancy! Yes, this impressive Keto Lobster Bisque is ready in 30 minutes and easy enough for a weeknight! This keto soup recipes makes 6 servings at 7.5 net carbs each. If you prefer to use crab instead of lobster, that’s fine, too!
Wednesday: Chicken Chimichanga
These Chicken Chimichangas can be fried, baked, or air fried and can be ready in as little as 15 minutes. This makes 6 large chimichangas at 6.6 net carbs each, so you have a little room in your carb count for toppings. You could save a few carbs and make these using the Keto Zucchini Tortillas, but you might lose out on a little bit of that crispiness.
Thursday: Cajun Pork Chops with Fried Cabbage
Another one-pan dish this week to get us through! These Cajun Pork Chops have great spice and finish cooking in the same pan with the cabbage, ensuring a tender, delicious dinner everyone will love! This serves 4 and has 3.7 net carbs per serving.
Friday: Chicken Piccata & Cheesy Roasted Asparagus
This new Chicken Piccata cooks quickly and is super flavorful! This makes 6 chicken breast halves at only 2.6 net carbs each. That even includes the delicious white wine sauce!
This Cheesy Roasted Asparagus is so satisfying and is so covered in cheese that even picky eaters should be able to manage! It makes four servings, 2.5 net carbs each. If you’re having a light meal of one chicken breast half and one serving of asparagus, that comes to a meal of 5.1 net carbs total! If you’re hungrier and need piece of chicken, that’s still under 8 net carbs!
Keto Meal Prep Tips:
Pumpkin Muffins –
These can be cooked on your prep day, then stored in an air-tight container up to 4 days. The best way to keep them fresh and not soggy, line your container with paper towels AND add a paper towel on top of the muffins. If these towels start to get very damp, change them out after a few days.
You can also freeze these! The best way is to wrap each keto muffin in a paper towel, then double wrap in plastic wrap. Once all muffins are individually wrapped, store them all in a freezer bag. To thaw, leave out on the counter (preferably with the plastic unwrapped so it doesn’t get super sticky, but it’ll taste great either way). To reheat, warm in the oven or microwave.
Lasagna Skillet –
This dish could be cooked entirely on your prep day (within 2-3 days of serving), stored in the fridge, then reheated by baking at 350 degrees until warmed throughout (about 10-15 minutes). Cover if the top begins to look too brown.
f you want to save time but not cook the entire thing ahead of time, you could cook the lasagna base (everything before the cream cheese mixture is added) and refrigerate for 2-3 days. Then reheat the lasagna base, add the cream cheese mixture, and bake according to directions when ready to serve.
Lobster Bisque –
You could make this soup completely up to 2-3 days before serving, then reheat it on the stove, stirring occasionally for even heating. While you’re waiting for the soup to cool for storage, you can go ahead and blend it as well.
If you want the lobster super fresh but still want to meal prep, make the soup base up to 4 days ahead of time without the garlic butter lobster. While the soup base is reheating, cook the lobster, then add.
I wouldn’t recommend making this entirely before serving because the crispy shell is such a great part of the dish. Instead, you can prep this ahead of time by cooking chicken (or shredding a rotisserie), then mixing up the creamy filling. You could form the chimichangas a few hours ahead of time if you needed these ready in under 10 minutes!
Pork Chops –
This one pan dish could be cooked a couple days ahead, but you may want to store them separately to keep the best textures. To reheat, place the cabbage in the skillet, top it with the pork, cover, and heat on medium low until warmed throughout. You could put a tablespoon or so of water in the pan to make sure nothing dries out, too!
I wouldn’t make this dish ahead of time because it’s simply SO good when it’s cooked fresh. Instead, save time by slicing the chicken, pounding it thin, and breading it. This can stay covered in the fridge (in a single layer OR with wax paper between layers) up to 2 days if your chicken is fresh.
If you’re prepping these more than 2 days in advance, place the uncooked breaded chicken on a plate and freeze for 2 hours. Once frozen, transfer to a freezer bag. Cook from frozen (just add a bit of time to cook completely through). I would also roast the asparagus fresh (but you could trim the veggie and shred the cheese 1-2 days ahead).
