For me, breakfast on the low-carb, high-fat diet can get monotonous. A lot of people have asked for examples of different foods I typically eat for breakfast, and what I do when I don't have a lot of time in the morning. When I know that I won't have very much time in the morning, I make these dishes at night and simply reheat them in the morning! So, here are five of my favorite breakfasts that I like to eat on the low carb, high fat diet!
5 Simple Breakfast Ideas
Baked Avocado Egg
Need: 2 avocados, 4 fresh eggs, 1/8 teaspoon of pepper, optional add-in 1 tablespoon of chopped chives, bacon crumbled. Baking dishes for avocados to fit in.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 425, slice avocados in half, take out the pit, and scoop out about 2 tablespoons of avocado from the center to allow the egg to fit properly. Place the avocados in a small baking dish so they fit snug. Crack an egg into each avocado half. Place the avocado eggs into the oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove them from the oven and season them with salt, pepper, chives, or whatever you'd like.
Baked Ham Egg Cup
Need: Eggs, tam or turkey, optional add-ins bacon, peppers, cheese, onions. Muffin tray, coconut oil.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 400, grease muffin tray with coconut oil by smearing it in each cup compartment, fit 1-2 slices of ham in each compartment, mix the ingredients together in a bowl, pour ingredients into each muffin compartment lined with ham. Bake for 15 minutes or until eggs are done.
Need: Eggs, optional add-ins: avocado, bacon, cheese, onion, green peppers, ground beef, turkey. Muffin tray, coconut oil.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 400. Mix the ingredients you chose together in a bowl. Smear coconut oil in each muffin compartment. Pour the mixture into the muffin tray. Bake for 15 minutes or until the eggs are done.
Avocado Egg Salad
Need: 6 hard boiled eggs, 2 avocados peeled and pitted, 1 tablespoon yellow mustard, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 cup chopped onion, 3 tablespoons chopped pickles, salt and pepper. Mixing bowl, fork.
Instructions: Peel and slice up hard boiled eggs, mash eggs with a fork in a mixing bowl. Add the onion, avocado, pickle, mustard, and mayonnaise. After you mash enough to a good consistency, salt and pepper the dish for taste.
Bulletproof Coffee Protein Shake
Need: 1 1/2 cup ice, 1 cup cold coffee, 1 scoop chocolate or vanilla protein powder, 1 tablespoon liquid coconut oil or MCT oil, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (liquid), optional add-ins blueberries, strawberries, raspberries. Blender.
Instructions: In a blender, put together the ice, coffee, and liquid coconut oil (preferably MCT oil if you have it), and heavy whipping cream. Blend these ingredients first. This mixture should become completely puree, almost the consistency of a milkshake. Now, add the protein powder and your optional berries. Blend and serve!
These recipes do not have to be limited to only breakfast. They are great appetizers and can be made for any occasion!
