53 Cool Low Carb Keto Recipes for Hot Weather; Recipes to keep you eating delicious, healthy food while keeping cool!
None of these 53 Cool Low Carb Keto Recipes for Hot Weather require running the oven or standing over the stove for long periods. Some may use some short cooking times with a skillet on the stove but they are in their own section so if you don’t want those, avoid them.
It is hot outside! The idea here is to keep cool!
Grilling requires standing out in the heat so for this post about keeping cool, I didn’t include any of those recipes either. If you want great grill recipes, see 57 Low Carb & Keto Grill Recipes.
None of those! We are not turning on the oven for this post; too hot! If you want great casserole recipes, see 61 Low Carb & Keto Casseroles.
There are no long cook times in this post. Some quick cooking recipes are included, as they don’t heat up the kitchen too much.
Crock pot/Slow Cooker/Instapot:
These are great for hot days. If you have a garage you can safely put it in to cook, that keeps the heat out of the kitchen too. I have done that many times. I especially like to make something that will cook enough for a few meals, which allows for zero cooking the next day(s).
Often, it is easy to make what I call a nibble platter. It is quick to assemble, easy to pack if needed, and simple to eat if you need to keep moving. Here are some examples of nibble platters or nibble containers if they are to go.
Lunchmeat, leftover meat, pepperoni; roll lunchmeat around cheese slices or string cheese, Egg Salad, Tuna Salad or Chicken Salad, Lettuce, bell peppers, celery, cherry tomato, cucumbers for dipping into Ranch Dressing or Guacamole, String cheese, Babybel, or Laughing Cow cheese, avocado, celery or cucumber with cream cheese and everything but the bagel seasoning, pickles, olives, hard boiled eggs, Deviled Eggs, Red Beet Eggs or Pickled Green Beans, nuts (not too many), berries (not too many); the combinations are endless for a variety of cool meals that are quick and easy to assemble and enjoyable and satisfying to eat.
Hard Boiled Eggs are great for nibble platters and there are plenty of ways to make them more exciting; See 10 Low Carb & Keto Recipes for Hard Boiled Eggs.
Deviled Eggs are also great for nibble platters or for any cold side! See 21 Low Carb & Keto Deviled Egg Recipes.
