Batch Cooking In Keto
Keto works like magic when it is done properly. Your body has to have specific nutrients in a specific balance to stay in ketosis.
You life is probably not neat and in a little box. There will be times you are in a rush. If you don’t have the right food handy when you need it, you are much more likely to grab something. That something you grab may not be Keto balanced.
Batch cooking is one way to turn your kitchen into a keto friendly, stress free zone. Instead of wondering what to make, if you feel like making it, etc., you have fully prepared dishes or even whole meals at your fingertips.
There is no way to tell you how much easier that makes your Keto life.
Before you grab your shopping cart, make sure you plan the meals, especially if you are going to freeze them. Keep these things in mind.
Which Foods Can you Freeze For Batch Cooking in Keto
You can freeze pretty much everything on the keto diet. Maybe cream cheese doesn’t do so well. But meats, cheese, eggs, and vegetables are fine.
How long does each food stay safe?
Veggies will last for months, up to 7 or 8. Soups, casseroles, stews, things that are blended and cooked will be safe for around 3 months. Most meats and seafood can be frozen for up to 3 months.
Make Sure To Label
Label each meal you put in the freezer. Put the ingredients, and the date you froze it. This is so you can eat the oldest first, and keep the food rotation first. Magic marker is good, or you can use painters tape so you can write on the tape and not the bag.
Freeze the Food In Meal Sized Portions
It’s not good for food to be unfrozen, then refrozen if you don’t eat it all. Try to put the food in to packages in the size you will eat in one meal. This way you only defrost it once…when you eat it.
Think About Buying a Vacuum Bag Sealer
Vacuum sealing your food helps prevent freezer burn. There are a few on the market, Foodsaver is probably the most well known.
Get microwave safe bags for extra convenience credit.
Batch cooking in keto is to make your life easy.
The easier you make it on yourself, the more likely you are to succeed. If you can grab a fully cooked meal, it will keep you from grabbing a snack that may not be up to your keto standards.
Willpower is like a muscle, it gets tired if overused. Keep willpower out of it. Have delicious meals at your fingertips. Your keto journey will be so much smoother.
