Your first meal in the morning can set the tone for the rest of your day. If you’re on the ketogenic diet, you have plenty of breakfast options from quick and easy meals to satiating baked dishes. Scroll through our keto breakfast recipes to find keto renditions of your old favorite comfort foods and breakfast pastries.
Here are five tasty keto breakfast or brunch ideas:
Keep it simple with cast iron keto steak and eggs. This dish provides you with lots of healthy fat and protein for longer-lasting energy in the morning. Top this breakfast classic with avocado slices for even more healthy fats! Cooking this meal in a cast iron pan infuses the eggs and steak with a juicy, delicious flavor. Season your steak how you see fit with seasonings like Celtic sea salt, black pepper, basil, thyme, and sage.
If you’re hankering after something light, chocolatey, and simple, you might like this keto chocolate smoothie. Throw your ingredients in a blender and voila! Alter the recipe to suit your taste buds with MCT oil, chia seeds, walnut milk, or other tasty additions of your choice. You might prefer to use a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder instead of chocolate protein powder to achieve your chocolatey flavor. If you’re a fan of a chocolate cookie crunch, why not add cocoa nibs? Keep it keto-friendly and make it a little sweeter and creamier by throwing in some berries and some avocado or coconut milk. Create your own smoothie recipe and experiment with the different flavors!
If you have a little more time to put on your chef hat and get fancy in the kitchen, try this warm and comforting keto spinach frittata. This breakfast delight is a rewarding and satiating way to start your day.
Cereal doesn’t have to be off-limits on keto. For a crunchier breakfast, you might choose a nutty keto cereal! There are different spins on keto cereal; experiment until you discover yours! You might prefer a keto cereal made with almonds and walnuts or maybe a refreshing acai bowl is more to your taste?
Many people on keto decide to fast in the morning and break the fast for lunch or an early dinner. If you’re short on time and want to unveil the benefits of intermittent fasting for your health, you might skip breakfast and break your fast later in the day.
