What can I eat for breakfast on a ketogenic diet?
By virtue of definition, you should always opt for foods that are low in carbs, high in (healthy) fat and contain moderate amounts of protein.
Some excellent examples include:
- Healthy Meats
- Seafood such as salmon, sardines, tuna, shrimp
- Leafy Greens and Vegetables
- Dairy such as cheese, butter and heavy cream.
- Nuts and Seeds such as almonds, peanuts, chia seeds, walnuts
- Healthy oils
Keep on reading for all the different easy keto breakfast recipes and ideas you can create with those items.
What can I eat for breakfast on keto Besides eggs?
Eggs are definitely a very popular option for ketosis because of their versatility but as you’ll see in the list below, there are other egg-free options you can incorporate into your keto breakfast.
The most important thing is making sure whatever option you choose continues to meet the criteria for ketosis.
Can you eat oatmeal on a keto diet?
The simple answer is No.
Unfortunately oatmeal is a grain and it contains a lot of carbs which is definitely something you want to avoid on a keto diet.
Good news is just because you’re on a ketogenic diet doesn’t mean you need to completely give up your favorite comfort food.
There are low-carb oatmeal alternatives you can try which are just as tasty and nutrient-rich as the oatmeal themselves.
The substitutes are often referred to as “noatmeal” and usually a mix of keto-friendly options such as chia seeds, hemp seeds, flaxseed, almond flour and almond milk.
I’ve included a few options in the list below (See: Easy Keto Breakfast Ideas – Cereal & Oatmeal)
How do I get started on the keto diet?
This question assumes this is your first time on a keto diet or at the early stages of your transition to ketosis.
If that’s the case then the best place to start is with the definition of what the Keto diet is.
A ketogenic (keto) diet is a low carb, low to moderate protein, and high fat diet that can help you lose weight more effectively by burning fat.
This happens in a state called ketosis where your body transitions to burn fat for energy instead of carbohydrates.
To get started on the keto diet you need to focus on eating the right foods (low carb foods) and the right amount of those foods.
You also need to be aware that the transition into ketosis isn’t the same for every individual.
For some it could be a few days for others it could be several weeks but here a few tips to help you get there faster:
– Limit your carb intake as much as possible
– Limit your protein intake as well (low carb doesn’t mean high protein)
– Eat high quality fatty foods
– Take intermittent fasting periods
– Exercise regularly (or more)
That’s just a very brief summary on what the keto diet is all about and if you’re looking to get started, what better way to do so than with some easy keto breakfast recipes.
