Finding low carb breakfast options or keto breakfast recipes doesn’t have to be complicated. If you’re like me, you want something fast, inexpensive, and easy to make. Bonus points for keto breakfast foods I can eat in my car! After losing 140 pounds on DIRTY, LAZY, KETO and keeping the weight off for six years, I’ve had plenty of time to narrow down my favorite keto breakfast ideas to a top ten list. Here goes!
My favorite DIRTY, LAZY, KETO breakfast is yogurt. Yes, it’s a bit of a carb spend, but oh so creamy and delicious! I buy whatever is on sale, making sure to pick out a plain, low carb, high-fat style that doesn’t contain sugar. I add a few zero carb sweetener packets and a dash of vanilla to my yogurt or sometimes mix a flavor packet of sugar-free lemonade for variety. Voila! Better than ice cream (well, maybe that’s a stretch…).
Next on my list is bulletproof coffee. Some people make this their entire DIRTY, LAZY, KETO breakfast, but for me, it’s just a start. I love to eat, and skipping eating actual food for breakfast isn’t an option. In fact, I don’t think I’ll even count this one in my top ten.
In the summertime, I enjoy a smoothie for breakfast. Using a bit of half and half, unsweetened dairy alternative milk or low carb yogurt as a base, I’m able to make a variety of concoctions – A few berries or handful of spinach will give it a pretty color – don’t forget the protein powder! Quest is one of my favs.
Because I’m always on the go, I’m often seen eating breakfast in my car. I like to take a plate of scrambled eggs, a cup of hard-boiled eggs, and/or a few pieces of turkey bacon or turkey sausage. I even keep a salt shaker in my car – so embarrassing!
On the weekends, when I have more time for a fancy keto breakfast, I love to whip up low carb waffles using Carbquik. Topped with butter and sugar-free Mrs. Butterworth’s syrup or Lakanto syrup? I’m in heaven. For variety, Carbquik can also be used to make biscuits, pancakes, or even muffins. All of their recipes are conveniently located on the side of the box. I must warn you, however, that Carbquik is super addictive! I limit myself to enjoying these treats as I have no self-control around baked goods.
