9 Simple Low-Carb Meals for Busy Weeknights

Eating Low-Carb or Keto doesn’t have to be boring or difficult. There are tons of great recipes out there for meals that are simple, delicious and filling. Here are some of my favorite easy dinners for weeknights.

Keto Spinach Stuffed Chicken

Ditch the Carbs has an amazing recipe for a basic, simple spinach stuffed chicken breast that I fall in love with every time we make. It’s a quick week night meal that the entire family will love.


One Pan Low-Carb Greek Skillet Chicken

Kalyn’s Kitchen has a ton of awesome low-carb recipes, but this has got to be one of my favorite. It’s bursting with amazing flavors, and is one of my go-to easy dinners. The family loves this one.


Crock Pot Low-Carb Tortilla Soup

There’s nothing better than throwing something into a crock pot in the morning, and coming home to a steaming, finished dinner after a long day at work. And when it tastes amazing and is low carb? Bonus! This is one of our weekly faves because it’s so easy and filling.


Low-Carb Sesame Chicken and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal

Healthy, delicous, and easy to throw together on a busy week night. I love one-pan meals, and this one is absolutely amazing. One of the hardest things for me on a low carb diet is missing Chinese food. But throw some cauliflower rice into a bowl with this, and cravings are gone! Even better, it’s not full of sugar or MSG!


Low-Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole

Bunless burgers are a staple for me on a keto diet, but sometimes you just want to mix it up a bit. This low-carb casserole is total comfort food – cheesy, gooey, delicious goodness that you can make ahead of time and throw in the oven for dinner. Even better, it has bacon. How  can you go wrong with bacon?

Easy Coq Au Vin

I love classic french recipes, but who’s got time to spend at the stove all day making some 30-step delicacy? Certainly not me. So when I stumbled across this recipe, it was love at first taste.  You can have this baby on the table in under an hour, and even better, it tastes great as a make ahead meal. Plus it looks like you spent hours slaving over a stove. Your dinner guests will be majorly impressed.


Baked Salmon with Parmesan Herb Crust

Start to finish meal in under 20 minutes? Healthy and delicious? Yes please! Salmon is a superfood, and prepared with this Parmesan herb crust, even your most picky eaters will happily devour this meal. Throw in a side salad or some steamed broccoli and you have a low-carb meal that will quickly become part of your regular rotation.


Shrimp Scampi Zoodles for Two

Shrimp Scampi Zoodles for Two, a delicious garlic shrimp and lemon dish over zucchini noodles is an EASY low-carb dish that takes less than 20 minutes! Skinny Taste has some great recipes, but there’s just something about zoodles that I love, and when paired with shrimp, it’s a match made in heaven. You may have to pick up a spiralizer like this one or this one, but it’s totally worth it. We use ours at least once a week.

Spaghetti Squash Carbonara

I will admit it, I miss pasta dreadfully. But this amazing carbonara made from spaghetti squash almost makes me forget my love of the carby pillows of goodness. Creamy, cheesy and tangy, this super-easy dish is great to make ahead and have for dinners during the week.




I hope this list helps you with some easy, healthy meal planning and shows how delicious and easy eating low-carb can be.  I know I’m always looking for great new recipes. What are some of your favorite low-carb meals?

Review: KOSE SOFTYMO Speedy Cleansing Oil
