Time-Saving Tips for Keto Chicken Recipes
One of the most difficult things about eating keto is all the prep work. Convenient foods are loaded with carbs. It seems like it takes more time to cook low-carb recipes.
But if you use some of these time-saving tips, you will be less likely to cheat and more likely to stick to your plan and stay in ketosis.
1. Menu Plan
The time you spend at the beginning of the week planning your meals will pay off. You will spend less time during the week feeling overwhelmed at the thought of coming up with dinner ideas.
If you don’t enjoy menu-planning – ask us! We can even create a custom meal plan for you.
2. Do a Meal Prep Day
Chop up all your veggies and prep all your meat on one day. This way you can make dinner in a lot less time.
Take this meal prep one step further and put the ingredients in a bag together. Then, you can store it in the fridge until you cook it, or keep it in the freezer.
3. Use Leftovers in Other Meals
Finally, be creative with leftovers. Make the salsa chicken one day. Then the next day make taco salad out of it.
If you can make multiple meals out of cooking meat once, you are saving tons of time already.
