FAQs About Low Carb Breakfasts
We're about to jump into all the yummy recipes, but first, let me answer a few questions you might have about these keto breakfast ideas.
Are there keto breakfast options with no eggs?
I'm a busy mother and, just like you, I get kinda tired of always eating eggs on a low-carb diet. So, I created a new low-carb diet breakfast routine. Instead of cereal and toast, I grab grain-free granola, unsweetened yoghurt, bacon, and keto green smoothies. Variety is the spice of life, after all!
Besides eggs, you can eat meat, vegetables, and nuts for breakfast. In this list, I have a bunch of ideas that take you beyond just eggs for the most important meal of the day.
Is breakfast important?
The saying "breakfast is the most important meal of the day" is not actually nutritional advice, but instead, a marketing slogan. Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and fellow 7th Day Adventist James Caleb Jackson invented this slogan to help sell their breakfast cereals in 1917.
Many regard breakfast to be the most important meal of the day yet are filling up on grains, sugar, and ultra-processed convenience snacks. Watch this video to see if your household looks like this one. You’ll be surprised.
And to learn why you should avoid grains, watch this video. Because if you learn what is wrong with cereals, you will learn what is wrong with modern food production. Learn the 5 whole-grain myths (number 3 always makes me giggle). No one should start their day with grains, it's what they use to fatten cattle.
But for many, never eating breakfast ever again has become part of their intermittent fasting lifestyle. But when you do want to eat breakfast, you need some quick and easy options.
How can I store my weekly keto breakfast meals?
As you probably have guessed by now, I'm a huge fan of meal prepping! Many people meal prep for lunch and dinner, but leave breakfast to chance. The way things are in my own household, breakfast is the most hectic meal of the day - so it's crucial that I'm prepped and ready!
I actually have an entire post written about meal prep containers... that are easy, safe and convenient. It's the perfect place to start when you are looking for ideas for storing your low-carb breakfast.
