 and not ideal for weight loss. Fortunately, you can still enjoy the things you love when you make healthier ingredient swaps! Here’s what you’ll need to make keto/low carb waffles:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 50g egg whites
  • 200g canned or cooked chicken breast
  • 50g raw spinach
  • 5g cinnamon
  • 2g sea salt

Begin by measuring out your ingredients. Mix all your ingredients in a large bowl and blend until smooth. Pour your waffle mix on to a hot waffle iron, ensuring the spread is even before closing the lid. These waffles may take longer to cook than traditional waffles, so be sure to keep an eye on them while you experiment with the cook time.

Keto Breakfast Muffins

Muffins are a breakfast classic and are easily customizable to fit your tastes! Whether you prefer a savory egg-meat-veggie muffin or a sweet blueberry muffin, breakfast muffins are a no-brainer if you need to get out the door in the morning. However, traditional muffins are not keto-friendly. Fortunately, Your Lean Life has the perfect keto breakfast muffin recipe:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 100g egg whites
  • 100g riced cauliflower

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees and measuring out your ingredients. Mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Remember, this is the base mixture for your muffins; you may add ingredients of your choice (like berries, veggies, or meat), but just remember to account for these ingredients when tracking your macros. Pour the mixture evenly into your muffin pan. Once your oven is preheated, bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. These can be eaten fresh or multiply the ingredients for meal prepping!

Keto Cauliflower “Oatmeal”

Like muffins, oatmeal is a quick, easy, customizable recipe. However, traditional oats are not keto-friendly! No need to fret — Your Lean Life has a great keto cauliflower “oatmeal” recipe that you’ll love. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 100g riced cauliflower
  • 200g egg whites
  • 50g egg yolk
  • 75g unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5 drops stevia
  • 25g blueberries
  • Salt (to taste)

Begin by measuring out your ingredients. Set the stevia and blueberries to the side, and mix the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add the mixture to a pot, and at medium heat, stir frequently until the mixture comes to a slow boil. As the oatmeal cooks, it will thicken, so cook only until you have achieved the desired thickness. Add stevia and blueberries.
