A nutritious breakfast is the key to kickstarting your day on a positive note. It provides the energy and essential nutrients needed for optimal body function and mental clarity. For a smooth morning, be sure not to deprive yourself of the nutrients your body needs to perform throughout the day. Here are a few nutrient-rich breakfast ideas to start your day off right!
Keto Oatmeal / Grits
Oatmeal is a great breakfast option, but with almost 30 grams of carbs per serving, it doesn’t qualify as keto. If you’re missing your morning bowl of oats, Your Lean Life has you covered! Just like substituting pizza crust or rice, you can replace your oats with the versatile cauliflower. Consisting of whole eggs, egg whites, cauliflower rice, and almond milk, this dish is protein packed and is sure to keep you full. When it comes down to the seasoning, you have 2 awesome options! Your Lean Life’s keto oatmeal base is shared with the recipe for grits. If you are wanting oatmeal, just add cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar free pancake syrup of your choice. If you decide to have grits, season the base with white pepper, and top it off with crumbled bacon or shrimp for a punch of protein. Both are delicious and are great meal prep options when on the go!
A breakfast staple in many households are pancakes because of their homey and sweet flavor. Despite their comforting flavor, traditional pancakes are high in calories, fat, and sugar, yet lacking in protein and fiber. Food is fuel, so finding a breakfast that will keep you feeling full for longer periods of time is key. So if you rather not give up pancakes, fear not. Your Lean Life’s protein pancake recipe is keto-friendly and low carb. This will help you avoid snacking during the time before breakfast and lunch. Protein is crucial in repairing strained muscles and overall growth. Top them with your favorite fresh berries or sugar-free syrup.
A nutrient-rich breakfast is a crucial part of a balanced diet, and makes up a huge part of your weight-loss journey. These breakfast ideas not only taste delicious but also provide the necessary nutrients to fuel your body and mind for the day ahead of you.
