Being on a diet usually means taking the time to prepare most meals yourself–and it can even mean long hours spent working over the stove or waiting for a dish to cook in the oven. As a result, many people do not stick to the diet they chose because it is not convenient for them. The good news is that the keto way of eating offers a lot of flexibility when it comes to food prep. No-cook keto meals are simple to make even on the busiest schedule.

If you need a meal in a pinch, here are a few no-cook recipes for every meal that will have your tastebuds singing with minimal effort. 

No-Cook Keto Breakfast

Breakfast is often cited as being the most important meal of the day, so start your day off right with a quick and nutritious breakfast. To really save time–and drop pounds more quickly–consider an intermittent fasting regimen that has you skip breakfast, such as 18:6. 

For an easy, filling meal, yogurt is a great option because it packs a protein punch. To that end, you will love this protein-packed keto yogurt recipe because it has 30 grams of protein to just 3 grams of net carbs. Plus, you can flavor it with your favorite protein powder.

Our strawberry keto yogurt is another popular recipe with minimal prep. For a yogurt recipe, it has surprisingly few carbs at just 7 grams–an excellent choice if you want to indulge a little. 

If you want something a little different from yogurt, here are some other no-cook ideas for breakfast:

If you prefer something more portable, there are plenty of keto-friendly smoothies that you can put in the blender and take on the go. Keep in mind that because smoothies are typically made with fresh fruit, they tend to be higher in overall carb count. Make sure you plan out your macros for the day before whipping up a smoothie. 

A few of our favorites include:

There are tons of hearty meals that will leave you feeling satisfied without the need to bust your macros for the day. Quick and easy to prepare, these meals will keep you fueled for a busy day.

Seafood enthusiasts can rejoice because many of the no-cook meals found here are heavy on the seafood, making use of canned tuna, pre-cooked shrimp, and canned or smoked salmon. For keto enthusiasts looking for a light meal with a lot of flavor, here are some of our favorites that will have you wanting seconds:
