Welcome to a whole new world of incredible low-carb breakfast ideas! Believe it or not, flavor, texture, speed, and portability don’t have to be sacrificed just because you’re on a low-carb diet. And we’ve got you covered with some of the best low-carb breakfast ideas out there. Hopefully, with some of these in your arsenal, your morning meals will feel a bit more doable! And versatile. And delicious. And...well, we’ll get on with it.
- Try ham and asparagus rollups with parmesan cheese to get some quick veggies in for that first meal of the day. Add chives and even a little nutmeg to spice things up.
- Creamy sausage gravy over chaffles? Yes, please. The secret? Use cream cheese and heavy whipping cream to thicken the gravy instead of traditional flour, corn starch, or xanthan gum in milk keeping it nice and low carb or keto-friendly.
- Low carb cereal—yep, it’s a thing. Think plenty of pecans, almonds, and coconut mixed with a good helping of chia and flax seeds drizzled in heavy whipping cream or your favorite low-carb milk.
- Even low-carb bagels exist! We’re serious. Just combine almond flour, a couple of eggs, cream cheese, and plenty of mozzarella with your favorite everything seasonings for a flavor-packed low-carb bagel!
- And when you’re looking for another place to use that cream cheese, whip up some quick cream cheese pancakes! Top with some heavy whipping cream and strawberries to really bring it home.
- How about low-carb breakfast pizza? Yeah, we’re serious on this one, too. You can prep a yummy riced cauliflower pizza crust filled with mozzarella and parmesan the night before and top with pepperoni and green peppers under the broiler come morning.
- Craving more veggies? How about a solid bacon, brussels sprouts, and cauliflower hash flavored with onions and garlic. And hey, toss in a few eggs if you’re feeling it today. Top with salsa and avocado for even more flavor and some healthy fats.
- Looking for a yummy no-cook low-carb breakfast? Make chia seed pudding with low-carb milk and leave it to set up overnight. Top with fresh raspberries or strawberries in the morning for a sweeter low carb breakfast idea.
- Now for those seriously rushed mornings—snag a Lean shake made with natural peanut butter for a snack with complete nutrition on the go.
All of these yummy low-carb breakfast ideas will fit seamlessly into your low-carb or keto diet! Just make sure that moderation is key. Too much of any good thing can mess with a well-balanced diet plan! Rotate some of these no egg low carb breakfasts with other higher protein, higher fat options as well.
BREAKFAST FOODS TO AVOID ON LOW CARB DIET
