Low-carb and keto no-egg breakfasts

While eggs pack a punch when it comes to nutrition, we understand that not everyone enjoys eating them for their morning meal.

Whether you have an aversion to eggs, an allergy, or are just looking for a new way to start the day, these low-carb, keto breakfast options will make your day delicious and egg-free.

Remember that breakfast can be anything you enjoy eating, so there’s no need to restrict yourself to traditional notions of breakfast. But if you tend to have more traditional tastes, you’ll enjoy our low-carb and keto options.

Traditional no-egg breakfasts

If you’re a traditionalist, there are plenty of delicious keto or low-carb recipes waiting for you without eggs.

Smoothies, cereal, and faux porridge can be made low-carb and delicious. Just remember to add enough protein and fat to get you started and keep you going.

Simple meals like coffee with bacon, ham, sausage, or another breakfast protein are both filling and tasty. If you prepare these proteins in advance and then warm them, breakfast is even faster and requires little to no cleanup.

You can also have coffee as a meal by itself. Check out buttered coffee, keto iced coffee, or try this keto cinnamon coffee for a flavored option.

If you’re constantly on-the-go, breakfast tapas are ready when you are. You can also prepare our delicious low-carb granola for an easy grab-and-go breakfast for your family.

  1. Scientific studies now prove that compared to other diets, low-carb or keto diets are often more effective for weight loss, and for improving certain health markers.

    This has been demonstrated in several meta-analyses of high-quality studies, for example this one:

    The British Journal of Nutrition 2016: Effects of low-carbohydrate diets v. low-fat diets on body weight and cardiovascular risk factors: a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials [strong evidence] Learn more

    Here are two selected high-quality studies (RCTs) demonstrating this:

    New England Journal of Medicine 2008: Weight loss with a low-carbohydrate, mediterranean, or low-fat diet [moderate evidence]

    Annals of Internal Medicine 2014: Effects of low-carbohydrate and low-fat diets: a randomized trial [moderate evidence]
