Low Carb Breakfast

Switching to a new diet will have less of a negative impact on you if you include low carb breakfast options in your plans. Some of the foods you have counted on for breakfast aren't available anymore, like waffles, bagels, cereals and bread. But other foods can still be used for healthy breakfast plans. 

When you are setting up your new diet plan, keep in mind the foods that are the lowest in carbohydrates. You'll focus on fibers, fats and proteins in your new, low-carb diet. Eggs are an obvious breakfast choice on your low-carb diet, but you can prepare them in many different ways, so it won't seem like that's all you're making for breakfast.

Eggs are wholesome and nutritious, and a perfect match for bacon or sausage. You might also include eggs with cheese in an open faced sandwich, among your breakfast options. Mashing boiled eggs, sprinkling with salt or pepper and sliding onto whole grain bread makes a great breakfast.

Yogurt can help to finish off any breakfast meal you choose. Whether you prefer plain or the type flavored with natural fruits, you can add flax seed, nuts or frozen berries to create a great breakfast. Add in low carb cereals – they are out there – for an extra tasty breakfast treat.

Fruits are common low carb breakfast options, and you can add foods to fruits to make them more interesting. Including grapes, bananas, oranges or apples will add extra flavor and texture to your morning meal. Cottage cheese with fruit is a tasty treat, too. Cantaloupe is low in carbs, and a terrific source of vitamins, calcium and protein. There's nothing like a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice at the end of your breakfast.

You'll enjoy preparing almond blueberry pie for breakfast, and even those in your family who aren't on a diet will help you polish it off. It's a delicious low carb breakfast option. Start out with one quarter cup of fresh blueberries and 1/3 a cup of almond meal and one egg. Begin by whisking the egg and add in your almond meal and a couple tablespoons of water. Place it in your microwave for around 45 seconds, then just add your blueberries and natural flavorings and microwave the “pie” for another minute. It's so tasty you won't even know it's a diet food.

For something that's different than your everyday meals, try a low carb breakfast burrito. Sometimes you crave something different, and this will fill the bill. Make your scrambled eggs first, and then add jalapeno peppers.  You can also try including some low carb rice. Place this in a tortilla that is low in carbs, and add salsa and cheese for a unique low carb breakfast option.  Or perhaps try something a bit more mild like cauliflower biscuits.

Are you in a hurry? How about a strawberry smoothie for breakfast. Use one cup of skimmed milk and a cup of fresh strawberries, and one tbsp of soy flour. Blend these ingredients together in your blender for a minute or so. You may want to add sweetener, too. This is one of the quickest low carb breakfast options for those days when you're on the go.
