Are you looking for easy and delicious lunch recipes to take to work? Look no further. Check out these 10 keto lunch for work recipes.

Sometimes it can be difficult to keep up with a diet, especially when we can’t find restaurants that fit into our diet in the area where we work. This can be even harder when we are on a ketogenic diet, as not many restaurants focus specifically on this type of diet. 

One way we can overcome this dilemma is by cooking at home and taking lunch to work. This has two main advantages: you save money and stay within your diet plan.

Due to the risk of spills, taking lunch with you to work can be challenging; however, with the right containers and the right recipes, it’s the best way to ensure a successful diet.

Preparation

First and foremost, you need quality containers that don’t crack or leak, that are BPA-free, and that are microwavable.

Also, you might need a spiralizer to quickly and easily cut your veggies.

For the cooking process, you may have three options:

  1. If you have the time, prepare your lunch in the morning.
  2. If you don’t have time in the morning but have some time in the evening, prepare your lunch for the day ahead.
  3. Prepare your lunches in bulk. For instance, prepare all your lunches on Sunday and put them in the freezer.

Things you might need:

Now that you know what you need to prepare your lunches, check out these 10 recipes that will help you maintain your keto diet.

1 – Caesar Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps

For egg fans, this is the perfect combination of eggs and a Caesar salad. Add Parmesan cheese for a great high-fat lunch.

My recommendation is to wrap all the ingredients in the lettuce leaves only when you are going to eat it. That way, you can keep the lettuce crisp.

2 – Keto Egg Roll in a Bowl

You might not have a bowl at work, but you can still eat a lunch that has “in a bowl” in its name. Your container can do a pretty good job of replacing a bowl. The idea here is to have fun and delicious meals even if you have to transport or eat them in a container.

This recipe gives an Asian touch to the keto mode.

6 – Low-Carb Pork & Egg Pie

A pie with a crispy keto crust?

Yes! And it also tastes amazing.

A pie is one of those foods that we can fill with leftovers and whatever we have in the pantry. However, because we’re talking about keto, we have to be sure we don’t fill our pie with carbs.

This recipe is a very good example of a keto pie full of flavor and low in carbs: only around 6 grams.

It has pork, bacon, cheese, cream cheese, and so many other great foods.
