Make a Keto Diet Meal Plan and Menu
Having a meal plan makes a keto diet so much easier, no matter if you’re a beginner or have already been eating low-carb for a while.
Many people start cooking from scratch for the first time when they initially begin a ketogenic diet. Having a place to store your favorite recipes and keep track of when to make them is a huge help, so you don’t have to learn a new skill and balance a new schedule simultaneously.
Furthermore, tracking keto macros proves way more complicated when you can’t remember what you ate three days ago and still need to log your numbers.
If you’re a keto veteran, meal planning is grease to your well-oiled machine. You know what works, so keep doing it! Plan ahead, learn about meal prep recipes, and dial in your routine for maximum results.
We all have enough thoughts in our brains, so help yourself out by transferring some of them to paper. The path forward is easier to walk with a quick reference point printed out in front of you.
Why do You Need a Keto Meal Planner?
Dietary changes often mean we have to rewire our brains and work hard to improve our daily habits. Keeping notes on recipes you like, ingredients you need, and when to prepare meals goes a long way towards establishing healthy habits long-term.
If you’re anything like me, stress brings out your worst qualities. And it will do the same for your meal plan. As soon as life introduces tension, the weaknesses in our planning become painfully apparent!
Plus, with a meal plan, you will also:
- Learn portion control
- Save money
- Avoid wasting food
- Save time
Do yourself a favor and think ahead, so you don’t wait until the last minute to shop, prep, or cook. Stop blowing your (macro and financial) budget by eating out and learn to cook at home, from scratch with healthy low-carb ingredients.
It’s amazing how much your life can change for the better once you have a solid plan under your feet.

Here are step-by-step directions so you can start using the blank keto meal planner and fill it in today!
- Print as many copies of each page as you want. I recommend starting with at least 2 per design.
- Store the papers in a dedicated meal planning binder or folder. They will also fit nicely on a home wall organizer.
- Fill the meal plan with all your favorite printable keto recipes. All of my recipes have print-friendly cards. Print yours and keep it in the same meal prep binder for easy access. Every recipe has the serving size and complete macros too!
- Customize your weekly keto menu for any season or month of the year. Use this template anywhere in the world!
If you’re into saving paper, consider laminating the pages or using plastic page protectors. Then, fill out each sheet with a fine tip dry erase marker. Finally, wipe clean whenever you want to start fresh.
Once you fill your new planner, continue strategizing with other healthy meal prep ideas from my friend Lisa.
