4 Low-Carb Breakfast Options For Optimal Health & Weight
If you are looking to better your health, lose weight, reduce cravings and improve your energy during
the day, then this post is for you!
If your current breakfast consists of cereal, bagel, croissant or muffin, then there is work to be done. We
recommend starting your day with minimal carbs and instead focusing on quality fats and proteins.
Focusing on these foods helps stabilize your blood sugar levels and not only makes you fuller but helps
prevent the afternoon energy slump and is a great way to kick-start your weight loss efforts.
In this video, Dr. Inna Lokshin, ND shares 4 low-carb breakfast options to start your day right!
All these suggestions are keto friendly! In fact, if you are really good with your diet already and are
looking to take it to the next level and perhaps lose more weight, you should consider fasting in the
mornings altogether. Read this blog post about the benefits of Intermittent Fasting if this is something
you want to explore!
So here are 4 options to consider:
- Eggs- eat them in any shape or form; boiled, scrambled, sunny-side-up, as a frittata or omelet.
Make sure to add vegetables and possibly slices of organic turkey breast or smoked salmon for a
delicious and nutritious meal.
- Yogurt- chose full-fat but unsweetened (with no added flavors) Greek Yogurt or Kefir. If you are
sensitive to dairy or prefer to avoid it, opt for coconut yogurt. Top it up with no more than half
a cup of berries and other superfoods such as 2 tablespoons of flaxseed or hemp seeds, coconut
shreds, pumpkin seeds, nuts or nut butter.
- Chia seed pudding – if you like your oatmeal, this is a low carb option that is not only high on
fiber but is also a great source of omega-3’s. Chia seeds expand so we recommend combining 1
cup coconut or almond milk, 3 tablespoon chia seeds, ¼ tsp vanilla extract and leave in a glass
bowl overnight (or at least 4 hours). Feel free to garnish with berries!
- Shake- chose either an organic New Zealand whey protein or vegan protein with no more than
10g of net carbs per scoop. Add ½ cup of frozen or fresh berries, 2 tablespoons of flaxseed or
hemp seeds, a handful of spinach and 1 tablespoon of almond butter. Use unsweetened coconut
or almond milk as the base, blend and drink right away.
