You might have landed here looking for dinner ideas that are keto friendly. Maybe you are looking to drop some of that lasting baby weight. Or maybe you’ve found it harder and harder to shed the extra weight as you get older.
Maybe you are just looking to reduce the amount of carbs, grains, and sugars in your family’s diet and increase healthy fats and proteins.
Making dinner can be a battle in any family, and I don’t know many moms who love to play the short order cook and make multiple meals at dinnertime. Here are 11 keto dinner recipes that even your kids will love! They are healthy and filling and don’t contain processed ingredients!

Instant Pot Pork Chops
I love using my Instant Pot. And since we raise our own pigs for meat, we always have a lot of pork hanging around!
These Instant Pot Pork Chops are SOOO easy. The instant pot keeps them from getting dried out and keeps the flavors in.
Great meal to have ready in a short time for busy moms!

Instant Pot Keto Chili
Chili is a family favorite around my house. And we have a favorite bean-filled non, keto recipe. But if you are trying to follow a keto diet- try this Texas chili version!
It’s spicy- so you may want to tone down the chilies a little if you are feeding it to little ones, but other than that this is a great keto version of a family favorite.
Crustless Low Carb Taco Pie
Tacos are another kid favorite. But if you want to skip the tortillas, opt for this crustless taco pie instead!
Full of the taco flavor that families love- and plenty of cheese for good measure- it’s sure to be a family favorite.
