Replacing carbs with fats puts your body in a metabolic state called Ketosis, where your body starts to use fat as its main source of energy, instead of carbohydrates. A diet that allows you to eat bacon, meat, and cheese? It seems like a dream come true.

The keto diet is so effective that I wrote a whole article about how to start a keto diet to lose weight, which you can find here.

If you are already familiar with the ketogenic diet, or if you’re simply looking for the perfect dinner recipe for tonight, keep reading to see 21 keto dinner recipes that will help you lose weight fast and get in shape! Feel free to comment and share your favorite ones. Enjoy!

15-Minute Lemon Garlic Butter Steak with Zucchini Noodles

Check the recipe here.

I’d like to start this list with a very simple keto dinner that can be made in 5 minutes, which is perfect if you’re in a hurry or simply don’t feel like cooking anything fancy tonight.

It uses zucchini noodles instead of regular noodles to make for a low-carb meal, and as you may know, zoodles are much healthier and packed with vitamins and nutrients, as opposed to regular noodles.

The result is incredibly juicy and savory, guaranteed to be a success even among non-keto dieters. (Read: your kids and potential guests will love this recipe)

Chicken Thighs with Mushroom Sauce

Full recipe here

First, let me start by saying that this is THE absolute favorite at home.

Once again, it can feel kind of disheartening that your family’s favorite meal is actually so simple to make… you kind of feel bad for all those times you spent your day in the kitchen with little to no compliments at the end.

Anyway, this Chicken Thighs with Mushroom Sauce recipe is, as its name suggests, very easy to make with chicken thighs, mushroom, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese and lots of condiments—all in one skillet (for easy dishwashing afterward).

I recommend you add this recipe to your keto repertoire ASAP!

Boneless Pork Chops in Creamy Garlic Spinach Sauce

Check the recipe here.

If you love to throw some healthy vegetables with a delicious meat-based meal, this Pork Chops with Spinach Cream Sauce recipe is made for you.

I’m a huge meat & cream lover myself, so when you know heavy cream is actually very good on keto, why not take advantage of it?

The spinach is very useful to enhance the taste while still providing some essential vitamins and nutrients.

I’d also like to add that this is a great way to try and make your kids hate spinach slightly less. I doubt they’ll ever LOVE spinach, but hey, after many times eating and enjoying this recipe, they might begin to actually be OK with spinach.

Shrimp scampi is one of my favorite meals, and this one is made keto-approved by using zucchini noodles, or zoodles, which are keto-approved and healthy.

Low Carb Meatball Subs

Full recipe here

If you miss meatball subs or if you’d like something that can easily be eaten while watching a movie on a family Saturday evening, here’s a recipe everyone will love.

The cherry on the cake: you can make more and take it to work for lunch on the following day! How great is that?

It has a lot of flavors thanks to the mushrooms, the onion sauce, and the many condiments that are used.

Like other recipes above, it is quite easy to make and shouldn’t take more than 30 minutes.

It’s perfect for one person or for a couple, particularly if you want to eat healthy tonight.

Keto Shepherd’s Pie

Full recipe here

In case you’ve never eaten Shepherd’s Pie before, it’s simply a casserole made with lamb (or ground beef), vegetables and a savory gravy.

Usually, people make Shepherd’s Pie with mashed potatoes, but to make it keto this recipe uses a cauliflower mash instead (which by the way is much healthier, whether you’re on keto or not).

The good thing is this dish makes for a balanced meal that doesn’t need any sides. Eat it on its own and enjoy.

Honestly, I do miss the bread. But it’s still pretty good and satisfying.
