Meal prepping.

A few weeks ago my husband and I started the ketogenic diet but became very lazy this past week, so we’re hopping back on the keto bandwagon today.  I have a couple of quick and easy recipes/meals to share with you that I prepped last night which will last us the next 3 days.  The first one is bacon wrapped scrambled egg bites.  This recipe is very simple and only calls for a few ingredients.

What you need..
Muffin tin
8 large eggs
Bacon of your choice (about 6-8 slices)
Shredded cheese
Garlic salt and pepper to taste
Splash of milk
Tomato and green onion (you can use whatever veggies you’d like)
Nonstick spray

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray your muffin tin with nonstick spray.
Begin placing bacon strips around the holes in the muffin tin.  I found it was easier to cut the strips in half and have them overlap slightly so they fit correctly.
Scramble the 8 large eggs, milk, garlic salt, and pepper together.  Pour the mixture into the tins with the bacon.
Add the chopped up green onion and tomato.  Sprinkle the tops with shredded cheese and place in the oven.
Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove and let cool to room temperature.  Wrap tin with foil and place in the refrigerator.

You’re finished product will look something like this.

My husband and I eat 2 of these each for breakfast in the morning.  My muffin tin made 12 of the bacon wrapped scrambled egg bites which leaves us with 3 days of breakfast.  All you have to do is heat for 20 seconds in the microwave in the morning.

I also prepped our lunches for the next 3 days last night.  We’re having grilled chicken salad.  All you need is your favorite lettuce and salad toppings!  Place them into storage containers and grab and go.

I used a mixture of romaine lettuce and baby lettuce.  I topped the salads with cucumber, zucchini, carrots, hard boiled egg, cheese, grilled chicken, tomato, and green onion.

    1. I’ve lost 13lbs so far! 🙂 That’s with no exercise. It was really hard for me to start the keto diet and stick with it because you can’t eat carbs or starches and I absolutely love fruit and bread. Now that I’ve been doing it a little while, it’s gotten easier. As long as you have a meal plan, it’s not so bad. There are a lot of alternatives I’ve found for things like bread and mashed potatoes. I’m going to try to post recipes every day to help people out because I know how hard it was for us to get started. It definitely works though! The only thing I can’t and won’t give up while on the diet is my carmel vanilla coffee creamer.

  1. The Keto diet with long term use will damage your body, particularly the liver. My niece is on a ketogenic diet due to her genetic illness and while it slows the progression of her illness, the doctor said the Keto diet will eventually cause damage to her body and could lead to her death. Obviously, a very slow death but it’s something to think about when doing the diet.
    There is something similar to this diet called the carbohydrate addicts diet where you limit your carbs to less than 4 grams with 2 meals, and then one meal you can have normal carbs. It’s a pretty good eating plan also. Good luck.

    1. I’m sorry I am just not responding, I’ve been very busy lately and haven’t had a chance to update my blog. Anyways, thank you for your concern! I have thoroughly researched the keto diet and know the repercussions. We do not follow the keto diet to the T. We’re just doing very low carbs 🙂
