Keto Meatballs and Bok Choy

Louise Hendon | January 27

Yeah, meatballs are a great choice for any Keto meal – they can be served as a dinner, lunch or breakfast. They’re super quick and easy to make and can be refrigerated and reheated the next day. If you plan on preparing a really big batch, you can freeze the mixture and use it in the weeks to come. 

But what do you do with leftovers?  Here’s a super simple recipe to help you add more variety to your dinners.

And if you don’t have bok choy readily available…use green beans or swiss chards (they’ll have a similar cook time to the bok choy).

And if you don’t have leftover meatballs, don’t worry, I’ve included a simple recipe for them too!  Remember how great these are to make in bulk and store for when you need a quick meal. Or check out this list of 36 Keto meatball recipes here.
