Simple Keto Breakfast Ideas in 2019

If you like the keto diet, and want some simple keto breakfast ideas, you’ve come to the right place. People want simple! But first, be sure that you are focusing on high-fat, moderate protein and very few carbohydrates. Your macronutrients should be comprised of roughly 75% fat, 20% protein and 5% carbs.

When you eat breakfast, you should be eliminating any form of bread like toast, muffins or breakfast sandwiches etc. Then include a fatty protein source like bacon, pulled pork or salmon. Finally, add in fats such as cream cheese, avocado or grass-fed butter whenever you can. To help you decide on what you can eat, we have provided some ideas below.

Ingredients:

  • avocado (halved and the stone removed)
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter
  • large free range eggs
  • rashers (bacon, cut into small pieces)
  • 1 pinch salt (and black pepper)

Directions:

  1. Start off by scooping out most of the avocado flesh, leaving about ½ inch around the avocado.
  2. Place a large saucepan on a low heat and add in the butter. Whilst the butter is melting, crack the eggs into a jug and beat them, adding a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Add the bacon to one side of the pan and let them fry for a couple of minutes on their own. Then add the eggs to the other side of the pan and stir regularly as they scramble. The eggs and bacon should both be done 5 minutes after the eggs are added to the pan. If you find you eggs are done a little before the bacon, remove the scrambled eggs from the pan and place in a bowl.
  4. Mix the bacon pieces and scrambled eggs together in a bowl, then spoon into the avocado bowls and get to eatin’!

  5. Thank you for all these amazing breakfast recipe. I have one recipe that is similar to you but require little effort is my avocado toast. All I did was take the seed out and crack an egg in that gap, sprinkle a little salt and pepper and toast it for 10-15 mins. Who la, amazing breakfast and it tastes so good. I usually cook it when I am doing my makeup before going to work. Your recipe looks better though, I love my bacon. Will give it a shot tomorrow 🙂

  8. I have been on the keto diet for almost 2 years now. What a change it has made in my life. The hardest part is keeping the food interesting enough to keep my taste buds happy. I have tried most of these recipies and they are terrific. I have not tried the breakfast shake. It’s always great to stumble across something new. I will be giving this a try after my next trip to the grocery store.
