Keto Lunch Ideas! 30 Low Carb Recipes That’ll Make You Look Forward to Lunch Again


Everyone would probably agree that the hardest meal to plan is lunch. That especially becomes a problem if you’re on a diet and cannot just go to the local café to grab something delicious.

When you’re on the ketogenic diet, it becomes even more difficult! Counting your macros and making sure you’re staying below your net carb intake becomes harder when you cannot control the meals you eat.

So, that’s where a little bit of meal prepping can come in handy!

Today I’m sharing 30 easy keto lunch recipes for work. All these meals are keto-friendly, easy to pack and will stay good for a couple of days. These are good quality meal prep containers that you can use to pack them up.

1. Taco Salad with Ground Beef

There is nothing more delicious than a salad, especially the one that contains a little bit of meat. It’s easy to make and pack for lunch.

So that’s definitely the dish you can go for when you have little to no time to prep for work lunches. This taco salad contains beef, lettuce, and cheddar cheese.

A little bit of taco seasoning as well as sour cream beautifully finishes it up and makes it delicious. Also, since it’s a salad, you have a lot of freedom with adjusting the recipe to your likings.

If you’re not a fan of cheddar cheese, you can always try something different and see whether you like it or not.

2. Chicken Cucumber Avocado Salad

Now I know there are a lot of chicken lovers out there. I’m one of them too!

This chicken salad is easy to make and since it contains avocado, it comes with a lot of healthy fats that are so essential for keto. What I love about this lunch idea is that you can completely remove chicken out of the picture.

If you have one of those days when you just don’t want to eat meat for lunch, eat this salad without the chicken. It’ll taste just as amazing and you’ll be getting your fats.

However, do realize that chicken is the source of protein here, which is essential to building muscle and burning off those calories.

3. Deli Snack Box

This little snack box idea is for those who have absolutely no time to prep for lunch. You still need to eat!

For it, you’ll need to get some smoked meats of your choice and just quickly cut them. Then, mix up the cheese you like as well as the keto friendly veggies.

Feel free to add a few cherry tomatoes or pickles to get a few more flavors into your lunch. The example recipe contains crackers. So, if you want to cut down a few more grams of carbs, simply pass on those crackers.

Here are low carb crackers with nuts that you could try instead too. These are delicious!

4. Cauliflower Fried Rice

An absolutely perfect keto lunch for those who work long hours! You can make a bunch of it, meal prep it and have filling lunches for the rest of the week.

Also, it only takes around 30 minutes to make it. So, if you’re meal prepping for work, you can easily get one week’s meal prep done in an hour or so.

That’s how you save time! Also, since there is no rice, you don’t really need to wait 20 minutes for it to cook!

So, I definitely recommend this one if you’re a fan of cauliflower and fancy such easy meals! However, don’t eat too much of it, otherwise, you’ll get over your daily net carb limit.

5. Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps

These definitely taste as good as they look. If you’re one of those people who crave for greens all the time, this is a pretty good lunch recipe.

It’s actually even good for kids because you can trick them into eating a little bit more of greens without feeling like they’re eating ‘’grass’’.

Also, if you struggle with digestion and feel like you’re bloated all the time, this lunch is great. It has a whopping 14g of fiber!

11. ‘’Just Like the Real Thing’’ Lasagna

Italians are genius, and nobody can tell me I’m wrong when it comes to food. However, Italian foods are very high in carbs and don’t go well with the keto diet at all.

However, it doesn’t mean we should completely forget it! This recipe tells you exactly that.

While it’ll take you a little bit of time to make the lasagna it’s totally going to be worth it! Also, it’s very easy to package it and bring to work. If anything, offer it to your friends because it indeed is just like the real thing.
