Creamy yoghurt cheese balls, or labneh, coated in crunchy and spicy dukkah make a delicious vegetarian keto option to round out these meal prep bowls. Make sure you have a batch of keto cheese balls ready as it will take an additional 2 to 3 days to make these marinated labneh balls.

The cauliflower rice and vegetables can be made ahead so that once the veggies are cooked and the bowls assembled, you can simply grab one to go for four days worth of quick and easy packable lunches for the next four days.

These easy keto meal prep bowls can even be made dairy-free and vegan by using this recipe, or you can use low-carb meatballs like these — the options for your healthy low-carb lunchboxes are endless!
