7 Low-Carb Breakfast Recipes to Start Your Day


After a more relaxed summer schedule, it’s time to get back into the routine of things. If you tend to do more meal planning during the school year, here are seven low-carb breakfast recipes to put on your radar.

Blueberry Protein Smoothie Bowl

From Sugar-Free Mom: “What exactly is a smoothie bowl? Basically taking your traditional smoothie in a glass to another level. Instead of sipping it, you enjoy it like soup and add some delicious toppings! It’s taking your smoothie to another level, and it’s a whole lot more satisfying for a meal.”

Bacon Breakfast Enchiladas

From 24-7 Low Carb Diner: “Egg wraps stand in for the standard tortilla. A cream cheese sauce goes over the top instead of a chili based enchilada sauce. No one would stop you from adding some green chiles or jalapenos. They are far easier to make than you would suspect.”

Coconut Porridge

From Low Carb Yum: “A high fiber low-carb coconut porridge that’s easy to make on the stove top or in an electric pressure cooker. It’s a perfect hot keto cereal.”

Vanilla Ricotta Pancakes

From Sugar-Free Mom: “When all you need is just four ingredients to make a quick and easy breakfast, you never have to feel deprived on a sugar-free, low-carb diet. Simple recipes like these are what can keep you feeling satisfied and happy and ready to take on the day ahead!”

Egg Muffins

From Butter Is Not a Carb: “I was determined to make some zero carb egg muffins for breakfast that I can bring with me all week for lunch at work, too. These muffins are extremely easy to put together and have the perfect low-carb, high-fat, moderate protein macro ratio.”

Fat Head Dough Bagels

From Low Carb Yum: “If you haven’t been making your own Fat Head dough because of the almond flour, you need to give this coconut flour version a try. One advantage of coconut flour over almond flour is that you use less. A little bit of coconut flour goes a long way as it seems to expand like a sponge when absorbing the liquid.”

Glazed Donuts

From Caroline’s Keto Kitchen: “If you miss Krispy Kreme, you’re in luck. This morning I made glazed donuts that look just like the real deal, and they are light, fluffy and delicious.”

16 Slow-Cooker Dinners That Are Whole30-Approved


Ideas that are compliant and ready when you get home.

If you’ve decided to try out Whole30—a restrictive 30-day diet that eliminates all dairy, grains, soy, legumes, added sugars, and processed foods, and instead focuses on meat, fish, fruits, and veggies—then you’re probably in desperate need of recipes. Thanks to an enormous amount of online support, there’s no shortage of yummy ideas that comply with the rules.

The only catch is that in an effort to creatively work within the Whole30-limitations, many of these dishes tend to be a little complicated or overly involved. That’s fine when you have time, but not so much when you’re hungry after work and need food ASAP to keep from going into full hangry Hulk-mode.

Instead of trying to pull something together when you’re tired from a long day and don’t have the brain power, make one of these 16 Whole30-compliant slow-cooker recipes. Since these ideas were formed with Whole30 restrictions in mind, most of them are pretty meat-heavy, which means that you should expect a lot of tender fall-off-the-bone fare.

Get these recipes ready to go either ahead of time by turning them into frozen meal packs (which you can find out how to do here), or before you leave for work in the morning. When you get home, a dinner you can actually eat will be waiting for you.
