The secret to succeeding on your keto or low carb lifestyle comes down to planning and making sure you have all the right tools, food and recipes on hand.

Start by investing in quality food storage containers. Ditch the questionable and stained plastic dishes that have been lingering in your drawer, as well as any mis-matched lids. Look for containers that work well in the fridge or freezer, oven or microwave, and, of course, dishwasher. 

You can make any meal into easy and delicious keto and low carb leftovers by cooking a few extra servings and then pre-portioning your extra meals in your storage containers, so they are easy to transport (if necessary), re-heat and eat. 

Make-ahead meal prep gets even easier when you cook or prep large quantities of different food groups so you can incorporate them into various make-ahead keto and low carb recipes during the week. Roast multiple servings of chicken breasts or thighs, pork chops, steak, fish or tofu; steam, sauté or roast veggies and prep other raw veggies. Prepare a few batches of chicken, egg or tuna salad. You can use all these ingredients in salads, stir-fries, scrambles, soups, bowls or wraps, which is especially convenient when you don’t have a lot of time to spend cooking during the week. 

Check out these new make-ahead keto and low carb recipes, which feature the same base protein and sauce recipe—ground turkey infused with the flavors of curry and ginger and a spicy peanut sauce. These make-ahead recipes do double-duty as either lunch or dinner and give your leftovers an international flair.
