Eggs are a great keto diet choice, and you can ply yourself with fiber, vitamins, and minerals by eating an omelet with low-carb veggies. Try onions, mushrooms, garlic, spinach, bell pepper, and squash as options.
You can halve an avocado and eat it with a spoon for a quick and easy breakfast-on-the-go. Or blend it with almond milk and cocoa powder for a rich and creamy smoothie.
Pour eggs, a protein of your choice (sausage, ham, bacon), and cheese into a dish and bake for a hearty, carb-light, first-of-the-morning meal.
Add some links to your breakfast plate to pump up the protein without the carbs. Beef or turkey are both fine, but be sure your beef is grass-fed instead of grain-fed.
Greek Yogurt Parfait
Top your protein-packed plain yogurt with some keto-friendly granola and a small bit of fruit for a breakfast treat. Avoid carb-heavy fruits such as apples and bananas, and stick to a small sampling of low-carb choices such as blackberries, raspberries, and star fruit.
Macadamia Nut Pancakes
That’s right, you can eat keto and still have your short stack. The key is scrapping wheat and white flours for ground macadamia nuts or pecans. Add a few drops of vanilla extract for a hint of sweetness.
Bacon and Eggs
This breakfast classic is on the keto-approved list for traditionalists. Try turkey bacon to switch things up, or play around with your egg preparation.
A warm bowl of porridge is perfect for cool mornings. Flaxseeds are a keto-approved substitute for oats. Mix with coconut milk, cinnamon, butter, grapeseed oil, and 2 tablespoons of frozen blueberries.
Cauliflower Cheddar Hash Browns
Riced cauliflower works as a great potato substitute when making keto hash browns. Mix cauliflower with garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper, and add arrowroot starch, avocado oil, and shredded cheddar. Cook in a waffle iron or muffin tin.
Who says you have to eat breakfast foods for breakfast? Mix up your favorite leafy greens with some hard-boiled egg, turkey, ham, or bacon, shredded cheese, avocado, and a vinegar and oil mix for a crunchy, filling Cobb salad.
