Keeping up with fitness and clean, healthy eating can be a challenge. These low-carb, high protein breakfast ideas are perfect. Striving to limit carbs, calories, and boredom with limited options can cause people to get tired of the same old foods and lead them back to unhealthy habits. It is important to incorporate variety and change in our diets to ensure we don’t become stagnant. Our bodies may prefer healthy eating, but they also crave variety and flavor. Replacing ingredients with healthier options is an easy, simple way to do this. These healthy low carb breakfast recipes are easy to prepare, especially on busy mornings, plus they are loaded with protein.

Low Carb Breakfast Recipes

1. Eggs and Vegetables

Eggs and vegetables cooked in coconut oil are a wonderful breakfast, and it will keep you full for a long time. Fry the eggs to your desired consistency, toss the vegetables in to sauté for just a minute, add some seasoning, and enjoy. 

2. Skillet-Baked Eggs With Spinach and Yogurt

Skillet-baked eggs with spinach and yogurt is an excellent, easy-to-make breakfast that is full of nutrients to kick-start your day. Baking is a fantastic way to cook meals, because you do not introduce any additional oils or fats. Pre-heat the oven to 300 °F. Combine yogurt, garlic and a pinch of salt in a bowl and set aside. Melt a little coconut oil in a skillet over low heat. Add spinach, leek, scallion, lemon juice, and salt, and sauté occasionally stirring. Remove skillet from the heat and crack several eggs into the veggie mixture, keeping yolks intact as much as possible. Bake for 10-15 minutes and top with yogurt mixture before serving. 

3. Creamy Shake

Who doesn’t love a creamy shake? But who loves all those carbs and calories? This avocado green tea shake is your perfect low carb breakfast idea solution. It is rich and creamy, and easy to make. Whisk together 1 teaspoon of matcha powder and 1 tablespoon of hot water, and set to the side. In a blender, combine half of an avocado, a ½ cup of Greek yogurt, 1 ¼ cups of almond milk, protein powder, and a sweetener like honey, agave, or stevia. Blend, add the tea mixture and serve!
