Below you will find a simple and easy to follow Beginner Keto Meal Plan! This is just what you need to get started on your journey to Keto success! When in doubt, check out the tips in our how to start a ketogenic diet guide for more information.
BREAKFAST KETO MEAL PLAN
Breakfast is one of the easiest meals of the day since eggs and uncured bacon and ham are so keto friendly. I prefer scrambled eggs, but if you are in a time crunch in the mornings, you can make hard boiled eggs ahead of time and have them chilled and ready to grab each morning. I also recommend using our method of how to cook bacon in the oven to batch cook your bacon once a week. This makes breakfasts even faster to prepare, and much cleaner!
Day 1: Keto Scrambled Eggs with Uncured Ham or Bacon
Day 2: Keto Bacon Egg Cups
Day 3: Chicken Breakfast Sausage with Scrambled Eggs
Day 4: Keto Breakfast Eggs and Avocados
Day 5: Keto Bacon Egg Cups
Day 6: Paleo Avocado Egg Bake
Day 7: Chicken Breakfast Sausage with Scrambled Eggs
Lunch can be varied, or you can make the same thing every single day. This list shows some of our favorite easy lunches. Salads and lettuce cups are simple, and the unstuffed pepper soup can be made in batches ahead of time then portioned, labeled, and frozen to easily be heated on the day you want.
Day 1: Keto Avocado Tuna Salad
Day 2: Turkey Salami and Cheese Pepper Sandwich
Day 3: Grilled Chicken Salad
Day 4: Unstuffed Pepper Soup
Day 5: Avocado Chicken Egg Salad
Day 6: Mexican Chicken Lettuce Cups

DINNER KETO MEAL PLAN
Dinner time is often the hardest meal of the day to make work for the keto diet. This is mostly because your family is going to want other things outside of your keto meal plan. This list of recipes proves that you can have the same things you already cook on a regular basis with just a few minor alterations. There is no need to go out and buy expensive foods to stay on this healthy eating plan.
Day 1: Keto Crockpot Italian Beef with Green Beans Almondine
Day 2: Keto Crockpot Salsa and Cheese Chicken serve alone, with low-carb tortillas, or on a salad
Day 3: Keto Avocado Tomato Hamburger with Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
Day 4: Slow Cooker Pork Roast with Roasted Cabbage Steaks
