2 weeks of quick keto breakfast recipes (based on my Instagram page)

Through the first stage of my keto diet I was having a soup for I would say 90% of my breakfasts, and during winter time it was a really great Idea, Especially on wet and windy Scottish mornings, it’s perfect idea to have something warming and energizing before you go to work or at work if you have a breakfast break. But when spring and summer came my body asked me for something lighter and more colourful. I have to say I’m not the biggest fan of omelettes, I’d rather like a simple fried or scrambled eggs with some kind of side salad. I fell in love with this set up – eggs and veggies – and for some people it might be boring, but I know that there’s a lot of people on keto diet who also likes this set. So I decided that I will gather some of my breakfast recipes in one post. If you are at the beginning of your ketogenic journey and you’re still a bit confused how to organize your meal plan ending up with bacon and eggs on your every breakfast, here I come with two weeks of keto breakfast recipes. They are not only quick, easy and simple to make, but also delicious. Colourful and appetizing will change your boring keto breakfast in a real feast.

How to make a quick breakfast? – organization is the key

I always keep my key ingredients on hand and in the same places, so in the morning with one eye still closed I can grab them quickly and prepare a meal. Pumpkin and sunflower seeds in a glass jars, preventing from spilling them all over the kitchen counter trying to open the foil packaging. Ingredients in the fridge always on the same shelf, in the same places, so I don’t need to dig in the fridge looking for them. Spices in my drawer always in the same order. I know it might sound stupid, but it makes everything much faster if all your stuff is always in the same place. And let’s be honest, if you’re working, every minute in the morning is precious.

How to make it even faster?

Dedicate one evening to prepare your veggies in advance. Grab couple of airtight containers or glass jars and dice or slice your veggies. It’s the best to keep each vegetable in separate container to keep them fresh. Tear some salad leaves, put to airtight container and when you need it just grab a handful and half of your salad is ready. This way you can have almost all the ingredients ready, just to toss them on the frying pan or pop into salad. You can keep your veggies this way 3-4 days in the fridge. You can also dice some ham or bacon and mushrooms. Because mushrooms have quite short term for consumption I almost always slice them, pack them in zip bags and keep in the freezer. If I want to use them in an omelette or scrambled eggs it literally takes 3 minutes on the frying pan to make them ready. The only veg I don’t prepare in advance is avocado, but takes like 30 seconds to prepare. Also I use beetroots which are not recommended on keto, at least not at the beginning. I use them because I really like their taste, but you can easily swap them with some bell peppers for example.

Tools.

Good quality, non stick frying pan tailored to your needs. Bigger if you make a breakfast for family, smaller if you make it just for yourself, so you won’t waste the time waiting for it to heat. Good frying pan will save you time and nerves. There’s nothing worse in the morning, than an omelette stuck into the pan, you need to scrape of it. And if we speak about scraping. If you get a good frying pan, stock up with a non-scratching wooden, bamboo or other spatula or a spoon, so you keep your pan in a good shape for a long time. If you have these two, the only left is your favourite plate, so you make your breakfast experience even more pleasant and you’re ready to go. Also airtight small or medium size glass or plastic containers will help you to keep all the ingredients fresh and prevent them from drying.

OK, now when you know how to organize your breakfast set up, it’s time for ingredients.
