It’s almost certain you have already heard about one of the most popular diet plans today called the keto diet. But in case you haven’t heard about it yet, this weight loss diet plan is high in protein and low on carbs. In other words, you should stay away from anything with a high amount of carbs, including pasta and bread, and instead have foods like eggs and meat.
Deciding to go on a specific diet plan is one thing. But to go keto? That is another story. In fact, going ketogenic with your diet can be at first challenging in terms of meal preparation. If you are fond of bread, cereals or oatmeal for breakfast, having this diet can be challenging. You might also ask yourself how you are going to prepare a keto-friendly breakfast.
While it is possible to prepare keto-friendly meals for breakfast, there may be times that you will get bored with the same old meals you eat every two to three days. There’s no need to worry – here are some of the many keto-friendly breakfast recipes you can try.
1. Sausage breakfast sandwich
Preparing a keto-friendly sandwich can be quite a chore if you have no idea where to start. This recipe will skip bread. Instead of using bagel or English muffin, you will use pork sausage patties as your “bread”. Sandwiched between your pieces of sausage “bread” are an egg, some veggies like tomato and spinach, hot sauce, and cheese. For a healthier option, try turkey sausage patties instead of pork, and use egg whites as your “filling.”
2. Pulled pork hash
This delectable keto-friendly recipe can help you save time in preparing breakfast. Simply take out that leftover pulled pork from last night and mix it with runny egg yolks, some kale and Brussels sprouts, onion, and other veggies of your choice. This recipe is rich in fiber and essential nutrients that can help you get going through the day.
3. Meat bagel
Similar to a sausage breakfast sandwich, this recipe will use meat as “bread”. Simply shape ground meat into a bagel or donut, cook it, and then fill it up with your filling of choice like lettuce, onions, avocado, and tomato. You can also prepare meat bagels in advance and store them in the freezer for easier preparation the next day.
4. Taco breakfast skillet
Feel like you’re having a Mexican meal with this power breakfast recipe, sans the chips or tortillas. This recipe includes ground beef, veggies, cheddar cheese, and salsa or sour cream dips. You can prepare this in advance and reheat it the next day (add the salsa or sour cream after heating a good serving for the day).
5. Kale and eggs
This yummy recipe includes kale, coconut cream, cherry tomatoes, red peppers, and mozzarella cheese (the cheesier, the better). Mix them all up, and you now have a healthy and keto-friendly breakfast that you won’t get bored eating for days!
6. Blueberry pancakes
Who says you can’t enjoy pancakes while on the keto diet? As a replacement for the usual flour, you can use almond and coconut flour to make your own keto-friendly pancakes. Add fresh blueberries (or any berry toppings of your choice) for added sweetness – just don’t overdo the berries, though!
