Amongst all the sugar-filled cereals on our supermarket shelves, there are the occasional good one. If you find cereal a little underwhelming or not satisfying enough, here are some easy, low carb breakfast options that don’t involve cereal! Have a look at the list below and hopefully you’ll get inspired to try a few for yourself.
Best Low Carb Breakfast Options
❤️ If you are making your own, simply pick one option from each category below:
(200ml) Water, Soy Milk, Unsweetened Almond Milk, Coconut milk, or Nut milk of choice (unsweetened)
Veggies or Fruit
Handful or 2 of mixed greens of choice, 1 x small zucchini, 1 x cup berries (fresh or frozen) 1/2 banana. You can also leave out the fruit/ veggies.
1 scoop Low Carb Flavoured or Plain Protein Powder (plant or whey) of choice.
1TB Nut butter, 1TB Nut meals, 1 TB Unsweetened plain yogurt (we recommend Chobani Plain or click here for our review on the Best Low Carb Greek yogurt) , 1TB Nuts or 1TB seeds
Sweetener of choice, Sugar Free Maple, Vanilla extract, Flavour extracts (peppermint, hazelnut etc) Dark chocolate, Coffee, cinnamon, nutmeg, coconut cream
*optional. but recommended. 🙂
Pop all into a blender or bullet and blitz!
6. Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled eggs are the best – just whip up a few, add a splash of milk and seasoning and pour them into a pan. So easy!
They’re also great to add some of your favourite veggies to – tomato, spinach, kale, avocado… Whatever takes your fancy! Add a bit of fetta or bacon as well for some extra flavour.
Easy peasy breakfast that you can make in advance. You can also pack it full of veggies for extra vitamins and minerals.
Check out our recipe for one here. Eggs are great as they just go with so much and are very good source of inexpensive, high quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat than the yolk. Eggs are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.*
4. Chia Porridge
As an alternative to oat porridge, you can try a chia porridge. Here’s Anna’s recipe
It won’t get you the exact same thing as oat porridge but a great option for someone who follows a FODMAPS diet (you might still need to adjust this recipe depending on how sensitive you are) or if you’re gluten intolerant. Pictured recipe
3. Breakfast Bars, Cookies or Muffins
These are always such an easy option for a busy week. Great grab-n-go options for those who are time poor. Simply bake up a batch on Sunday and have your week (or, 2) sorted!
We have a bunch of great recipes that will statisfy you, and keep you full all morning. Here are some of our brekkie faves: Apple Cinnamon Protein Cookie, Apple, Almond Cinnamon Muffins, Apple Berry Muffins , Almond & Apricot Coconut Cookie, Carrot Cake Breakfast Bars, Oaty Protein Bars
2. Protein Pancakes or Waffles
Pancakes don’t just have to be a weekend treat – our Protein Pancakes have only 2.5g carbs per serve!
