While we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it can also be the most challenging. Many of us have a million things to do each morning. Between getting up and ready to head out the door for the day, packing a keto-friendly lunch, and getting the kids to school, making breakfast may be the last thing on your mind. However, skipping this important meal means missing out on an opportunity to fuel the body with nourishing fats and nutrients to get through the day.
The key to a keto-approved breakfast is to find quick options that are also filling. Here are five quick keto breakfast options that anyone can make with limited time.
#1 Bulletproof Coffee
Starting your day with a cup of bulletproof coffee alongside a hard-boiled egg is an excellent way to start your day. To make bulletproof coffee, you will need one cup of brewed coffee, two tablespoons of ghee, and one tablespoon of MCT oil. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until frothy. Enjoy right away! Bulletproof coffee helps to boost focus, helps you feel full, and can also reduce cravings for those heavy carbs. MCT oil is also an excellent source of energy. It’s the ideal way for a keto-dieter to start their day!
#2 Avocado & Eggs
Avocados and eggs are both staples of the ketogenic diet and can be enjoyed as an easy breakfast option. Make your eggs how you like them and enjoy with half of an avocado sprinkled with sea salt. This breakfast has the perfect balance of fat and protein to start your day off right.
#3 Superfood Shake
Making a shake in the morning is a great way to save yourself some time. Try blending together some unsweetened almond milk, half of an avocado, a scoop of collagen protein, and your favorite kind of unsweetened yogurt. This will provide your body with a good balance of fat and protein to keep you full all morning.
#4 Coconut Cream Parfait
Make yourself a filling and nutritious breakfast parfait with full-fat unsweetened coconut cream, two teaspoons of flax seeds, and ¼ cup of blueberries. You can also add a scoop of collagen protein for an added boost. This makes an excellent on the go breakfast option if you are running short on time.
#5 Riced Cauliflower with Eggs & Cheese
Cauliflower can be used in place of many different things when cutting out carbs. You can make a riced cauliflower breakfast dish that mimics hash browns and serve it with scrambled eggs and shredded cheese. This makes for a savory and filling breakfast that doesn’t take too long to make.
Don’t let your busy schedule be the reason you don’t eat breakfast. Eating breakfast is a great way to start your day off right and to give your body what it needs to support mental focus and energy, and to continue to burn fat for fuel.
