I’m super lazy.
If you’re reading this lazy keto meal idea article, you’re probably lazy too!
Once I went on the keto diet, I looked up tons of recipes.
I even made a few of them.
But the recipes were time consuming, and I had to be careful of every gram of protein, fat, and carbs in re recipe.
I went on the ketogenic diet to stop thinking about food, but instead my time went into cooking and browsing for new recipes (which is fun, but I wanted to do other things).
Over time, I developed easy meals that satisfied my hunger and did not take a lot of time.
Keep in mind, that lazy keto does not mean “half-assing” the diet.
You still need to keep your carbs low enough to reach the state of ketosis and become a “fat burning machine”.
However, if you don’t want to consume your life with living by strict guidelines lazy keto is the perfect eating habits.
A much more “relaxed” way of dieting.
The best definition I found for eating lazy keto was from the Keto Queens. They Quote “intuitively eating a low carb, moderate protein and high fat diet without tracking macros”. I add to that definition with “ doesn’t take a lot of time”
Not tracking macros+ quick and easy= perfect lazy keto meals.
