We’ve all heard about the wonderful benefits of following a keto diet. However, a lot of people lose their excitement when they realize that this diet requires them to make diet changes, limit a lot of the high-carbohydrate foods they habitually consume, and try out a lot of new things.
Along with that is the price that comes with it. Healthy food is expensive, right? WRONG!
Well, I’m here to solve your issues. In this article, I’ve created a budget-friendly keto meal plan for the whole week, so you don’t have to go through that headache!
I’ve already arranged the meal plans into days, so you’ll just follow through according to the day of the week you’re in! Let’s start!
Cinnamon Dolce Latte Breakfast (235 calories)
The Monday Blues is probably the worst thing to happen after a great weekend with friends, family, or even just yourself. Here, I’d propose the Cinnamon Dolce Latte Breakfast. It tastes amazing, it’s easy to make, and you can’t go wrong with it!
Low Carb Keto Pizza (202 calories/ slice)
You can still enjoy a delicious pizza and maintain ketosis! Where there’s a will, there’s a way. In fact, with this healthy Fathead Pizza recipe, you can enjoy another slice because the calories are that low, when compared to your average pizza slice at more than 280 calories.
Typically, your favorite pizza toppings are keto-friendly. But what about the crust? With this recipe, you’ll need:
- Almond flour
- Cream cheese
- Shredded Mozarella
- Psyllium husk
You can obtain the recipe here!
Keto Stew with Venison (310 calories)
There’s nothing like a hot bowl of juicy venison stew after a hectic Monday. This stew is great anytime of the year, especially when it’s cold outside! Venison can be hard to find, so you can replace it with another meat. Always be creative with your diet! If you’re on a tight budget, beef can be a lot cheaper than venison too. You can find the recipe here!

Coconut Cluster Keto Cereal (525 calories)
If you’re on the keto diet, it’s wise to avoid the cereal aisle. Heck, even if you aren’t, you should avoid it too! Cereals are known for high sugar contents and additives you and me can’t even pronounce! That doesn’t mean you’ll have to skip cereals altogether, though. With this coconut cluster cereal recipe, your Tuesday breakfasts will take you right back to your childhood!
Chicken Tacos (348 calories)
If you loved your Taco Tuesdays before you started the keto diet, I don’t see why you must stop! Normally, corn or wheat flour would be used for tortillas, which can spike your glucose levels. Now, with alternatives such as almond flour becoming readily available, you can still enjoy your favorite traditional Mexican meal with this low-carb chicken taco recipe!
Cauliflower Mac and Cheese (393 calories)
If you love having your mac and cheese for dinner, you’re bound to love this cauliflower mac and cheese recipe. Typically, mac and cheese would be filled with dairy products, and that’s enough to perk up any keto dieter’s ears. Don’t worry, the dairy products in this recipe, such as the heavy cream and cream cheese are keto-friendly!
Keto Waffles (150 calories)
If you love your warm, fluffy waffles, there’s no need to ditch them just because you’re in ketosis. With this fluffy keto waffles recipe, your Wednesday Waffles just got better! If you’re into fruits, adding some blueberries is a great way to enhance the flavor, while not spiking your glucose levels.
Curry Chicken Lettuce Wraps (554 calories)
Yesterday you had your traditional Mexican favorite. Today, it’s time for an Indian treasure- the chicken curry. If you’ve never had this before, I can guarantee you’ll be waiting for the next serving next week once you’ve completely devoured your first…you can smell the aroma from miles away! We’re adding lettuce wraps to this for the added vitamins and fiber. This calorie-dense meal will keep your going through the day.
Mushroom Bacon Skillet (213 calories)
Out of all the dinners I’ve listed, this could be the easiest to prepare! Clean-up barely takes time with this one, so I’ve allocated a lovely side dish to pair with this juicy meal below. This mushroom bacon skillet dish only takes around 10 minutes to prepare!
Balsamic Roasted Turnips (32 calories)
Your favorite roasted potatoes aren’t keto-friendly, so is the “healthier” sweet potato. What else could you replace these with? You probably didn’t guess it, but it’s turnips! When roasted, the natural sugars caramelized, creating a dish that tastes heavenly! Give these balsamic roasted turnips recipe a try!
Creamy Vanilla Chai Protein Shake (190 calories)
By this time, I think it’s safe to assume you’re getting tired of preparing meals early morning. Which is why I’m allocating this awesome creamy vanilla chai protein shake recipe into you Thursday breakfast. It tastes amazing, helps keeps your digestive tract in check for the day, and it’s convenient for the busiest of people!
Zesty Chili Lime Keto Tuna Salad (406 calories)
If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t included any seafood meals prior to this. That’s because I’m saving this bad boy as a celebration since you’re so close to finishing this long week! This zesty chili lime keto tuna salad recipe is going to give your palate a refresher and enhance your mood and productivity.
Super Simple Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice (260 calories)
If you’ve done a little bit of research on keto-friendly foods, you’ll know that white rice is a no-go. A cup of white rice can have up to 45 grams of carb that can straight away put you out of ketosis. However, there are alternatives, like riced cauliflower which tastes a lot like white rice! When you’re craving for rice, do check out this simple chicken cauliflower fried rice recipe!
Citrus Keto Green Smoothie (207 calories)
Nothing as great as waking up and realizing it’s already Friday! It’s your last day of the week at work, and you’re already planning your weekend adventures. It’s time to freshen up to this citrus keto green smoothie!
Crispy Keto Chicken Tenders (395 calories)
Chicken tenders are great for any occasion, whether you’re throwing a party for friends or enjoying your Friday lunch alone. I, however, personally love this crispy keto chicken tenders’ recipe because of how easy it is to find the ingredients!
Baked Pork Chops (423 calories)
Pork chops are an excellent source of mono and polyunsaturated fats. Not to mention, they’re downright mouth-watering delicious! Baked pork chops are also rich in zinc, which is a mineral many people neglect. This baked pork chop recipe will require a little more than an hour’s worth of preparation and cook time, though!
P.S.- Looking for the perfect keto rolls? great, for toasting, burgers, and just some plain ole’ butter? Look no further than my keto everything rolls! I love to slice my into tiny toasts, crisp them up and serve with delicious meats and cheeses! YUM – Check it out here!!
