The idea of breakfast probably conjures up memories of a bowl of crunchy cereal and creamy milk or sweet jam liberally spread on a fluffy croissant or bagel. Unfortunately, most breakfast foods aren’t exactly keto-friendly. Don’t mess up ketosis and your health, weight, or fitness goals! Stay on the right track and enjoy a new breakfast idea– keto style!
1. Keto Breads
Grain-based breads aren’t usually keto-friendly, but you have plenty of appetizing keto bread to choose from, so you don’t miss out! Whether you prefer cinnamon swirl bread, avocado toast, or French toast, enjoy a keto bread recipe:
Sugar-filled donuts may taste great, but they’ll put you on a sugar-high that’ll leave you crashing just a few hours later! Keep it keto-friendly with a delicious, creative donut recipe:
3. Keto Muffins!
There’s nothing quite like sinking your teeth into a soft, doughy muffin with a crispy edge and a burst of sweet flavor. Reward your hard work on a ketogenic diet with a keto-compliant muffin:
4. Crepes, Croissants, and Pastries!
Crepes, croissants, and pastries, oh my! It just wouldn’t be breakfast without flaky pastries and croissants. Delight your taste buds with a keto-friendly option:
Picture perfect pancakes drizzled with a keto-compliant syrup sounds beyond tempting, and it’s just what you deserve with your next keto breakfast idea! You might be a fan of cinnamon, pumpkin spice, or blueberry pancakes:
6. Waffles and Chaffles!
Chaffles are always on the keto menu and easy to make with just two ingredients: eggs and cheese. If you’re a waffle fan, don’t think you have to say goodbye to waffles just because you’re keto. Try these 20-minute keto Belgian waffles made with almond flour, coconut oil, coconut milk, eggs, and other tasty ingredients!
You might also like 10-minute cinnamon waffles sweetened with vanilla extract, cinnamon, and stevia! Be sure to top your waffles or chaffles with your favorite toppings like berries, nuts, and keto-approved syrups!
When food manufacturers take out the fat, they compromise on flavor, so they use sugar to make their products palatable. This is the case with countless yogurts! Stick to high-fat keto-approved yogurts, and don’t forget your favorite toppings like unsweetened dark chocolate chips and berries!
Cereal is a staple at most breakfast tables! Select keto-approved milks like high-fat and coconut milks and enjoy a low-carb cereal:
9. Eggs, Bacon, and Sausages!
The most classic keto breakfast ideas involved eggs, bacon, and sausages; and it’s definitely a keto meal when you add in the fat and protein. Satisfy your hunger with one of these eggy, meaty keto breakfast ideas:
When you’re following a ketogenic diet, you have to watch your fruit intake. Instead of apples and bananas, go for berries and lower sugar fruits. Typical fruit juices like orange juice might be off-limits, but who said you can’t sip on a refreshing keto smoothie or another low-carb beverage!
