Health Benefits of Keto Breakfast Tacos

Packed With Protein

Unlike traditional breakfast tacos, which come with a hefty dose of carbohydrates from the tortillas, these keto breakfast tacos are low-carb and rich in fat and protein.

In addition to its satiating effect, protein is a crucial nutrient for weight management. It helps preserve your muscle mass (the most metabolically active tissue in your body) and has a high thermic effect — which means you burn more calories when you breakdown and absorb protein than you do any other macronutrient.

These tacos come packed with 23 grams of protein per taco coming from eggs, cheese, and bacon[*].

Rich In Omega-9s

You likely get enough omega-6 fatty acids in your diet, but getting omega-3s and omega-9s can be a bit more challenging.

Avocados are an excellent source of omega-9 monounsaturated fatty acids. This type of fat is considered essential because your body doesn’t make it on its own — which is why many people supplement with omega-9.

In addition to rounding out the fatty acid profile of your diet, research shows that omega-9s are anti-inflammatory as they help to modulate your immune response so that it works for you, not against you[*].
