Lunch time can be challenging. Here are Hundreds of Low Carb Keto Lunch Recipes and Ideas to help make it successful.

To buy or pack?

Buying gets expensive and it is tricky to know just what you are getting when you order out but packing can be so boring. It does not have to be boring though! 🙂

Whether you eat out of a lunch bag, a cooler or a refrigerator with the option of warming your lunch, these ideas will help!

To Eat Cold

Lettuce wraps; mayo, mustard, lunchmeat, cheese or a BLT

Or sometimes it is simpler to wrap the lettuce into the lunchmeat!

Nibble platters; Often, it is easy to make what I call a nibble platter. It is quick to assemble, easy to pack 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 the meat around cheese slices or string cheese

What brand of lunch meat do you use for your lunches?

Joy

Thursday 27th of September 2018

Hi Amber, I personally do not eat a lot of lunchmeat. It just has never been my favorite. I am more of a salad or leftover girl. When I do, I like just Great Value Oven Roasted Chicken Breast. It is not the best clean Keto choice but OK for me as often as I eat it. For clean eating you want to find a natural version, one with no nitrates/nitrites added and no sugars/dextrose/molasses/honey (there are so many names for sugar!). The best thing is to read the labels and experiment to see which you like the best. Check carb counts too and get the fewest possible. I'm sorry that is not the simple answer you are probably hoping for but I hope it helps. :)
