Easy Keto Meal Prep Tips
Chicken Skillet –
This meal and Wednesday’s soup both use cooked, shredded chicken, so the first step for meal prepping would be to either cook and shred chicken or shred two rotisseries from the store. Cooked chicken can be stored 3-4 days in the fridge or up to 6 months in the freezer.
This skillet is perfect for meal prepping 1-3 days ahead of time! You can cook the entire dish, store in the fridge, then simply put back in a skillet, cover, and reheat. Stir occasionally to make sure it is warmed evenly. You could also reheat this in the oven, microwave, or even a slow cooker if you wanted.
I would not freeze this dish as the cheese will likely change texture.
Steak Skillet –
This dish can be cooked and stored in the fridge up to 3 days, but I prefer cooking the steak fresh so it doesn’t get overcooked. If you want, you can sauté the vegetables up to 2 days before you want to serve this and store them in the fridge. When ready to serve, heat up a pan, saute your beef with the marinade, then toss the vegetables back in and melt the cheese for a quick 5-10 minute dinner!
You could freeze this cooked dish up to 4 months, but skip the cheese. Thaw the meat and vegetables, warm them up in a skillet, then melt the cheese over the top for an easy meal prep keto dinner.
This soup can be made up to four days ahead of time and stored in the fridge. Stir and reheat by the bowl in the microwave or in a pot on the stove. I wouldn’t recommend freezing this soup because of all the dairy, but it is possible if you follow the directions in the post.
You can easily make the sauce in this recipe ahead of time, making this a ridiculously quick meal! Because you use cooked shrimp, all you have to do is reheat the sauce and toss in the shrimp to coat. You could make the sauce up to a week ahead of time and store in the fridge in an air-tight container. You could also freeze the sauce up to three months. If the sauce separates during freezing, just add a pat of butter to a skillet over medium low heat, add the sauce, and stir until it becomes smooth again.
You could make multiple batches of this sauce and use it with cooked chicken, beef, pork, or enjoy it over zoodles for an easy, quick meal.
I don’t recommend making these ravioli ahead of time, but you can make the filling ahead of time and store it in the fridge up to four days in the fridge! Then when ready to serve, just toast your cheese, spoon your filling, and fold for delicious keto ravioli. These get hard as they cool, so it’s best to serve fresh.
