A full plate of bacon is the immediate thought I have when thinking of keto breakfast. On the keto diet your morning fuel is sponsored by fat. There are keto options for bagels, pancakes, muffins, or anything else you crave. The keto diet is not a diet you will feel deprived on.

KETO ON-THE-GO

Keto is one of the easiest diets to follow on the go. You could easily order a keto breakfast sandwich through the drive-thru or while sitting at the diner, here’s how.

EASY KETO BREAKFAST SANDWICH

Simply use two sausage pates as a bun and place the eggs between.

Another easy option is the classic bacon and eggs for breakfast.

EATING KETO BREAKFAST OUT

A diner near my home features a Red Hot Chili Peppers-inspired omelet that is perfect for keto. It’s called the Dream of Californication, you’ll find it as a California-style omelet at most diners/ restaurants for breakfast. Here’s the recipe for you to make at home. In the United States, California is where the most avocados are grown. They even have their own avocado parade. This is where the name comes from. Avocados are packed with potassium, magnesium, and healthy fats. You could even make guacamole to put on your eggs.
