Fact: Trying to wing it on the keto diet is...not a great idea.
Just to refresh your memory, the keto diet specifies that you should get 60 to 75 percent of your calories from fat, 15 to 30 percent of your calories from protein, and just 5 to 10 percent from carbs.
While, yes, the high-fat, low-carb diet seems totally doable at first (load up on avocados and cheese, skip the pasta), it's not necessarily the easiest diet to stick to—thanks largely in part to how damn time-consuming it can be.
“Since many convenience foods do not meet the guidelines of a keto diet, [you’ll need to rely on] whole, unprocessed foods and homemade options," says Erin Palinski-Wade, R.D., author of 2 Day Diabetes Diet.
Yep, she said homemade—that's where meal-prepping (a.k.a., cooking once and eating the same meal two or three times) comes into play. It will almost certainly make the keto diet a hell of a lot easier.
“When you meal prep, [you can see] what keto meals and snacks you can create without having to eat impulsively and make choices that could be off-plan,” says Palinski-Wade. “Planning in advance helps you keep the right keto foods on hand, so you can have satisfying options no matter where you go.”
Still, finding all the good meal-prep worthy recipes on your own could be daunting (especially if you're a keto beginner). So start with these recipes for keto breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks to get you going. (Transforming your fridge? That's another thing entirely...use this grocery list to pull off a fridge makeover like the one below.)
