Lazy keto meals make life so much easier to stick to a good-for-you diet while still being able to eat some darn good food!
These delicious easy-to-make lazy keto meals cover breakfast, lunch and dinner so you won’t find yourself asking, what can I eat today?
Lazy Keto Meals
To get my hands on this amazing list of lazy keto meals, I reached out to my blogging community on Facebook.
Clearly, these food bloggers never cease to amaze me with their cooking skills and keto creativity!
In addition, because I eat lazy keto, I consider this list a treasure trove of ideas in order to keep my life happy and fulfilled!
Difference Between Keto and Lazy Keto
First, what is the difference between the keto diet vs. the lazy keto diet?
- Keto Diet:
- Strict tracking of macronutrients (calories, carbs, fat and protein)
- Lazy Keto Diet:
- You only have to track your net carbs.
However, for both keto AND lazy keto diets, your net carb intake (Total Carbs – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols) is the same.
Simply stated, the recommended net carb intake per day is between 5 to 10% of your total daily calories OR between 15 and 30 net carbs per day.
Obviously, the lazy keto pros are that you can eat processed keto foods and you don’t have to count your other macros!
Needless to say, that’s MY kind of diet!
In short, it just takes the stress out of what I can and cannot eat.
In general, I just know to stay away from the obvious starchy carbs like:
- Starchy vegetables
How Do I Create A Lazy Keto Diet?
For me, creating a lazy keto diet is as simple as eliminating the high carb foods listed above.
To be honest, that’s basically it!
Coupled with eating your protein and vegetables first before grabbing any carbs, as well as drinking a lot of water, you will be on the road to losing weight and keeping it off.
I’ve organized this list by lazy keto breakfast ideas, lunches and dinners.
Keep in mind that these are ALL easy keto recipes and quick meals.
Believe me when I tell you I’m all for easy and quick!
