If you’re trying the ketogenic lifestyle, you may be a little bored with what you’ve been doing and looking for some new keto diet lunch ideas.
The Epoch team all enjoys the keto diet and intermittent fasting, which is why we wanted to create a keto series here on the blog.
Here are 18 mouth-watering keto diet lunch recipes!
Fun Keto Salad Twists
I call these salad “twists” because they’re a fun twist on how you would normally eat these things on a regular diet.
Extremely quick and easy to make last-minute or have on hand, these keto diet lunch ideas are perfect for on-the-go.
Caesar Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps
This is an egg salad upgrade. There are also a bunch of upgraded deviled egg recipes to check out if you’re looking for some keto side ideas.
There are only a few basic ingredients in this recipe, so it’s easy to adapt however you like best. I tend to love simple recipes the most, though.
If pickles aren’t your thing, you can always swap them out for cucumbers.
Delicious Keto Sandwich Ideas
I have a feeling these sandwich ideas will have you wondering why you ever used regular bread in the first place.
90-Second Bread that Actually Tastes Good!
Yes, this actually only takes 90 seconds to make. AND it’s in a mug, people. Gotta see it to believe it.
This recipe was recommended by one of our own – Austin, and can be used for a wide variety of sandwiches. We’d love to know what your creativity comes up with!
Almond Butter Bunless Bacon Burger
Get a rundown on cholesterol along with this bomb-sounding burger recipe.
Zucchini is giving cauliflower a run for its money in keto land, from what I hear. A special feature of this recipe is a quick video showing exactly how easy this grilled cheese is to make, and boy does it make me want to eat one right now.
Keto Pizza Recipes
Pizza is my jam. There’s never been a time I wasn’t very happy to eat pizza, and I don’t anticipate that ever changing.
I’m quite pleased there are good pizza solutions for the keto diet.
Keto Cauliflower Pizza Muffins
Having various types of muffins on hand for lunch-on-the-go just makes sense. There are all sorts of ideas all over Pinterest, most of which I imagine could be frozen.
These keto-friendly pizza muffins look like an especially great option – super simple with ingredients you probably already have.
How amazing is pizza that’s ready in 5 minutes? I’d say very.
The key is a psyllium husk crust, which actually looks like a pancake when you first make it, so I’m betting you could adapt the technique for breakfast as well.
Here are 9 other keto pizza recipes also worth checking out from the same site.
I can’t say I ever would have thought of doing this, but it seems like it could be good. I can’t help but feel like I would end up wanting a crust, though.
Perhaps it would pair nicely with these garlic cauliflower breadsticks.
All-American Keto Diet Lunch Ideas
These spins on some of the all-American favorites will curb your cravings.
I think there’s a good chance I might like this better than regular mac and cheese.
I’ve always loved corndogs, so I think this is a brilliant spin on them.
Oven-Baked Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders
What’s better than chicken tenders? Probably bacon-wrapped chicken tenders.
Mexican Keto Lunches
Mexican adapts really well to the keto diet, in my opinion. Mmmm, so delicious!
5 Layer Mexican Dip Bowls You Can Eat with a Fork
If you’re one of those people who loads the chip up so much you don’t leave much dip for the rest of us, you’re sure to be pleased with this recipe.
Fried cheese is… just so amazing. Keto is my favorite diet because CHEESE.
Mexican Pizza on a Cheddar Cheese Crust
Pass the guac and sour cream, please!
Asian Keto Lunches
Asian is a little harder to keto-adapt, but many people are pretty happy with cauliflower rice.
Truth be told, you can get used to (and learn to actually really enjoy) almost anything. These recipes look delicious without a big leap in acquired taste, however!
I love that zoodles have become so popular and you can find lots of recipes with them, because they’re just so good for you!
“Bowls” are another of those so easy, but so wonderfully versatile, styles of eating that just makes sense to me.
Our whole family loves sushi (really basic sushi), so it’s definitely not something we’re willing to give up on a ketogenic diet. And with this great recipe, we don’t have to.
