Whether you’re keto-curious or a ketone-checking pro, the slow cooker can be your BFF in getting all the healthy fats, protein, and low-carb vegetables you need. Yes, these keto Crock-Pot recipes are low in carbs, but better yet, they make enough for meal prep so you’ve got several meals throughout the week covered. And keto diet plan or not, batch-cooking is always helpful.

Although it’s different for everyone, to get your body into ketosis, you need to consume roughly fewer than 20 grams of net carbs per day. Break that out even further, into three meals a day, and you’re looking at around six to seven grams of net carbs per meal. Of course nutritional requirements can vary from person to person, so we have a range of recipes to choose from, including shredded chicken, pot roast, pork chops, and salmon. Some naturally clock in with six to seven grams of net carbs per serving (some lower!), while others are a touch higher. We’ve also included smart ingredient swaps for some recipes to help make them a more keto-friendly choice.

Here are 10 easy keto slow cooker dinners to try right now.
