Even though many typical breakfast items are off the table, figuring out what to eat for breakfast doesn’t have to be difficult. These keto and low-carb breakfast ideas will save you from blankly staring into the refrigerator in the mornings.
I never put much thought into how carb-heavy breakfast is until I cut out carbs and had to find something keto-friendly to eat. The morning meal brings with it pastries, cereals, and oatmeals that you can’t eat. But don’t fear – there are many alternative breakfasts to try.
See below for our favorite low-carb breakfasts. Each of these breakfast ideas can be eaten on a low-carb or keto diet, so dig in.
