The key to whipping up a quick breakfast? Stocking your refrigerator or pantry with a variety of staple breakfast ingredients. Here are some of our favorites to have on hand at all times:
- Eggs. Whether you’re going for a classic omelet or a traditional boiled, scrambled, fried, or poached version, eggs always come in handy when it’s meal o’clock. Not only do they taste good, but they’re also one of the most versatile protein-rich foods.
- Bacon. Another basic — yet versatile — ingredient that will help to sneak in some extra fat to keep you satisfied.
- Avocado. During busy mornings, avocados can be a real time saver. Simply spoon it straight from the shell, sprinkle it with lemon juice (or your favorite spices) — and you’re good to go. You can also enjoy it with eggs, a keto plate of cold cuts, or a salmon plate.
- Cheese. It comes in all shapes and sizes, and we love all of them. Block, sliced, shredded, or cream. Feta, parmesan, cheddar, Brie, or mozzarella — just to name a few. Make some quick cheese roll-ups and enjoy cold — or incorporate cheese into your omelet or scrambled eggs.
- Cold cuts. It’s always good to have a selection of various sliced meats, such as roast beef or prosciutto, in the refrigerator so you can pick and choose depending on what you’re in the mood for.

Skipping breakfast?Forget the conventional wisdom that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Several studies contradict this thinking.1
Sometimes less is more. Skipping breakfast is a quick and easy option for many on keto — especially since cutting carbs often causes hunger to fade. Additionally, going without your morning meal is one way to practice intermittent fasting, a great tool to reduce blood sugar and jumpstart weight loss.
But it’s not for everyone. If skipping breakfast means hunger, a keto breakfast is probably a better choice for you.
