School lunch ham with Cheese keto and low carb

Diced Ham with Cheese

Super simple and satisfies just about any kid!  You can really use any leftover meat from dinner the night before!  If we make a cauliflower/broccoli casserole with (like this one), we'll just pull a little off to the side for lunches.  You can do this with steak, pork, or anything else you're making!  I usually dice it up so my little kids can eat it easier, but you can leave larger pieces too!

Chicken Salad on 90 Second Bread

My Pressure Cooker/Ninja Foodi (this one) is definitely a go-to when I'm making lunches for the week.  After I cook up eggs, I might also do a batch of chicken (instructions here) that I can shred or dice for a dinner casserole or for chicken salad for lunch.  When I can make meat for multiple meals at once...I'm a happy guy!  Check out our Chicken Salad recipe here: Chicken Salad
