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! 🙂

To Eat Cold
Lettuce wraps; mayo, mustard, lunchmeat, cheese or a BLT
Or sometimes it is simpler to wrap the lettuce into the lunchmeat!
This picture has what I call lazy deviled eggs; just cut hard boiled eggs in half and add a squirt of mayo and mustard; quick and easy!
Celery, peppers, cucumbers, radishes, pork rinds to dip into Guacamole.
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
Egg Salad, Tuna Salad or Chicken Salad
Lettuce, peppers, celery, cherry tomato, cucumbers for dipping into Ranch Dressing
String cheese, Babybel, Laughing Cow cheese
Mixed nuts (not too many), avocado,
Hard Boiled Eggs, Deviled Eggs, Red Beet Eggs or Pickled Green Beans
Lunchmeat and cheese roll ups, mixed nuts and red beet egg.
The “sandwich is just cheddar cheese slices with mayo, mustard and lunchmeat inside. And lazy deviled eggs again. I often eat these!
More lazy deviled eggs and bacon with cream cheese. (If you haven’t tried that, put it on your must try list!)
Black olives, pecans, provolone cheese, pickle, hard boiled eggs, broccoli and ranch
Hard boiled egg, lettuce and bell pepper with olive oil and white wine vinegar on the side, cheese, pickle and tuna with mayonnaise

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