Printable Carnivore Diet Meal Planner

Plan your carnivore meal prep for the week with a visual map of where you’re going. With this in hand, you’ll never be caught unprepared. With a proper plan, your fridge, freezer, and pantry will always have the foods you need and be ready to go.

I made THREE easy to use planning templates:

  • Menu for the Week
  • Easy Meal Ideas
  • Shopping List

These sheets can be used anywhere in the world, for any season, and in any month of the year!

There’s nothing worse than getting super hungry only to realize you have no idea what to cook.

It’s these moments when we are most tested and get tempted to eat off plan because it’s easy and convent. Hopefully, these sheets will keep you on track!

Carnivore Meal Prep Tips

Meal prep is a unique art. It takes determination, forethought, and a pinch of creativity.

Here are some carnivore diet meal prep tips that I’ve learned after following this WOE for 3+ years.

  1. Always keep staples stocked. For me, this means tallow in the pantry and ground beef in the freezer. Knowing these foods are on hand as backup gives me a safety net in case my original plan falls through.
  2. Pick 3 meal combinations for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and rotate those through the week. This is the central theme in our Carnivore Diet Meal Prep Lessons we share with community members in our private support forum. Having a variety of meals you know you like, can afford, and are easy to make keeps the day-to-day meal prep simple.
  3. Double up whenever possible. Double batch a recipe as much as you can. Storing leftovers in the fridge for the next meal or freezing portions for later minimizes the amount of hands-on time you need to spend in the kitchen actively cooking. 

If you’re starting, it can be a rocky road, but you’ll soon figure out what you like and how you like it.
