You may have heard of the Keto Diet and how amazing it is for weight loss. You may have also thought to yourself something like, “I’ll never be able to follow that. I won’t be able to eat anything I like.” Well, if that’s the case, that’s where you’re wrong. I’ll prove it to you by providing you with what may be the hardest of all meals to prepare when on a diet: lunch. I’m going to provide you with various packable Keto lunch ideas so that you can stay on track all day long.


If you’re reading this, chances are you know that the Keto Diet is more or less a low-carb diet that focuses on eating mostly fats, but also proteins. Lunchtime can be the most difficult time to stay low-carb because of how much energy your body starts craving in the middle of the day. Thankfully, this list will help you to ensure that you pack yourself a lunch that’s both Keto-friendly and energy-boosting!

1. Caprese Salad in a Jar

Here we have the easiest packable Keto lunch idea ever! All you have to do is find some jars, buy just five low-carb ingredients, place the ingredients into the jars, and store them in the fridge. Yes, that’s right, while you’re preparing this lunch, you’re also packing it up for the next day. It’s genius!

2. Keto Buffalo Chicken Tenders

Who doesn’t love a good chicken tender lunch? I know I do–especially when they’re BUFFALO chicken tenders, and especially when they’re KETO! This packable lunch can be thrown into plastic sandwich bags or Tupperware to bring along for lunch. You can go right ahead and pack some up for you and your kids because they’re sure to love this lunch idea by Lexi’s Clean Kitchen, too!

3. Cashew Chicken

Cashews are a great way to fuel your body on the Keto-diet since nuts are recommended as a source of fat, and therefore, energy when on the diet. Another great aspect of this recipe by Six Sisters Stuff is that it yields not one, but four servings. In just 30 minutes, you can have yourself a great Keto lunch for four whole days! Just divide the food into four different containers, throw them in the fridge, and grab one a day before rushing out the door in the morning.

4. Italian Sausage and Peppers

Well Plated developed this Keto-friendly recipe that is just 8 grams of carbohydrates per serving, and tastes so good that you’ll forget you’re not eating any of those beloved carbs everyone is always obsessing over. You’ll be too busy fueling up on its 19 grams of fat, which will turn into energy, that you won’t even think about those carbs!

5. Spinach and Feta Lettuce Wrap

This SkinnyMs recipe is the perfect idea for a packable Keto lunch because it’s super easy to make and has only 7 grams of carbohydrates per serving. You have no idea how delicious a lettuce wrap can be until you’ve tried this one!

6. Low-Carb Cauliflower Rice with Sumac

Laa Loosh really put the “carb” in “low-carb” with this recipe! It tastes so much like normal rice, that you’ll forget you’re actually eating vegetables for lunch. Welcome to the beautiful world of the Keto diet, where lunches are filling, healthy, and packable, and your mind, heart, and tummy are all satisfied.

7. Stuffed Bell Pepper Pizzas

I bet you thought that you’d have to miss out on the pizza lunches everyone chips in on at work during lunchtime. Luckily, SkinnyMs has a lower carb version of that classic pizza lunch: our Stuffed Bell Pepper Pizzas. Once again, we have a packable Keto lunch idea that will have everyone around you jealous during lunch break. These pizzas fit perfectly into most containers and will keep you full until dinnertime!

Now that you have enough packable Keto lunch ideas to get you through a whole week, it’s just up to you to get cooking! You won’t be disappointed, trust me. The Keto Diet works.
