16 Keto Crock-Pot Recipes for Easy Low-Carb Meals

We all love set-it-and-forget-it recipes and these keto crock pot recipes will keep your meal prep plans in place!

One of the biggest challenges on the keto diet (or most diets, for that matter) is finding new recipe ideas that you won't get bored with. And many of us, of course, lack the motivation to keep on going with meal prep because of time and energy success. But a slow cooker makes it easier to set yourself up for success. And if you're following a keto diet, you might wonder what, beyond meat and veggies, you can put in that slow cooker day after day, without repeats.

Sure, with a keto diet you can eat all the bacon you want, drink the Bulletproof coffee, and consume so much cheese. None of these things present you with obvious choices that spark ideas for simple meals when following a fairly strict diet plan, beyond the idea of wrapping everything in bacon.

Whether you're new to keto or just need some inspiration, we've got you covered with this easy meal plan guide!

What to Eat (and Not to Eat) on the Keto Diet:

The keto diet is by definition a low-carb diet, and as such, you'll need to exclude and/or limit certain foods. Keto eating has some rules. There are a few items that are not permitted on the keto.

The foods to avoid on keto are:

  • alcohol
  • grains
  • sugars and sweets
  • processed foods
  • high-carb fruits (such as bananas, for example)
  • factory farmed fish & pork
  • refined oils and fats
  • milk

These 16 keto Crock-Pot recipes will have your high-fat, low-carb meal ready for you when you get home from a long day at work.
