What is a Typical Breakfast on the Keto Diet?
On the keto diet, eggs are a favorite breakfast ingredient because of their versatility and nutritional values. A single egg contains 5 grams of fat, 6 grams of protein, and only 1 gram carbohydrates making eggs an ideal food for a ketogenic meal. You’ll find most keto breakfast recipes involve eggs, meat, and vegetables prepared in a number of ways, including frittatas, omelets, egg cups, and more.
While eggs are a delicious source of protein, B Vitamins, and filling fat, it’s easy to grow tired of them when your keto meal plan seems to revolve around eating them every morning (and sometimes every evening). It is possible to diversify your menu and enjoy keto breakfasts without eggs.
