30 Energizing Low Carb Breakfast Ideas

30 Energizing Low Carb Breakfast Ideas

By now, it has been pounded into your head more times than you’d like to remember; breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet, many people skip this meal altogether, for reasons that range from ‘no time’ to ‘I can’t stomach food’ to ‘I don’t like breakfast’.

However, regardless of the best lame excuse you can muster, there are reasons too many to mention why you NEED to have breakfast, and there is an endless number of options for you to consider.

Just in case you don’t who why breakfast is so important, here’s a quick refresher:

  • A Healthy Breakfast Revs Up Your Metabolism – Think skipping meals will have you looking like a Greek god/goddess? Nope, research has shown that people who miss meals end up slowing down their own metabolism, hindering long term calorie burn, and hence weight loss. Consume a meal loaded with proteins, healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and fiber to kick your gears into motion!
  • You’re Less Likely to Snack On Trash – bowl of cereal? More like bowl of TRASH. Breakfast cereals are notoriously fake on nutritional value, and offer no real incentive for your body to feel satisfied. Chances are, if you eat cereal for breakfast, you will be having the munchies by 9AM.
  • You Become A More Productive Citizen – be it in school, or work, the benefits of a solid breakfast are unmistakable. You are sharp as a blade, extremely efficient in work tasks, and do not procrastinate! Your teacher or boss is likely to notice!

By now you may be thinking that it’s about right to go load up on bread and pancakes at breaky. Not at all; in fact, diets high in refined, starchy and simple sugars are actually the worst in regulating your energy levels and keep you working at peak performance.

Typical wheat free pancakes are made of almond flour, which is extremely low in sugar and carbs, but a decent source of proteins. The natural flavor of almonds means that your pancake will still taste excellent even without added sugar. You can serve with a few berries on top, but keep in mind that berries are reasonably high in sugar content.

Muffins

They’re easy and fast to prepare, so you can even make them in the evening before bed, and have breakfast waiting for you when you get up! What you get is a muffin high in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals and very low in carbs- just what you need to get up and go.
