How to Do Breakfast, Keto-Style

Here are a few tips that will help you ease into your day while remaining in ketosis, and make it easier for you to stick to your ketogenic diet.

Make Enough For Leftover Breakfast

Meat dish leftovers are ridiculously easy to fire up again on the stove or nuke in the microwave for a very filling breakfast or brunch.

Making a bigger batch of your favorite keto recipes also saves you money and time. Freeze them and keep eating them without having to repeat shopping and prepping.

Stews and casseroles can last a week for one person, breakfasts included!

Keeping things as simple as you can on keto prevents lapses of reaching for something “easy and quick” but non-ketogenic (and non-healthy), especially when you’re beginning keto.

Think About What You Need For the Day

The ketogenic diet has probably taught you by now that you don’t always have to eat what’s prescribed, or prescribe what you eat. Eat what you need instead, according to goals you’ve set. This is true for all meals, but especially for breakfast. Most of us have the most important parts of our day lined up in the mornings.

For example, eggs and bacon may not give you the mental acuity you need for an early meeting, or a very light breakfast bowl may not give you enough energy for the hike you planned with the family.

Plan It

Plan your meals according to your schedule for the week. Seriously, planning a menu isn’t old-fashioned or finicky. It’s smart. Taking charge of your food is taking charge of your health!

Planning helps you:

  • shop for or order ingredients from your local and organic produce/meat/dairy supplier  
  • use what’s in season  
  • prep and cook what you can beforehand and/or in bulk
  • match your meals to the demands of that day
  • look for interesting takes or tricks and techniques for your planned recipe, especially if you’re not a skilled cook
  • make your own ingredients like ghee, garlic confit, nut milks and flours, broth, etc.
  • see the trends in what you like making and eating so that you can invest in higher quality tools and appliances you need to make them (e.g., cast-iron skillet, food processor, knives, salad spinner, slow cooker, Dutch oven, spiralizer, baking pans and liners, etc.)

What and How Much Should You Be Eating For Breakfast While on Keto?

There are no rules, except eating whole food, following keto macros, and fulfilling your calorie budget each day.

Eggs are good. Cheese is good (if your gut has no disagreement with it). Complex carbs, no. Aside from being non-ketogenic, these could feel too heavy at breakfast anyway, making you feel sluggish instead of energetic.

You may notice that most keto breakfast recipes are high in fat. Because of the keto macro? Yes. But more than that, good fat from good sources happens to be great fuel! You want fuel for the day and you definitely want to prime your ketone production, so you load up on your fat macro at breakfast.

Remember to calculate your macros and eat the right amount of calories for your daily needs and goals. Whether or not you’re fasting, you must meet your required caloric and protein intake to maintain healthy function for your mind and body.

Aside from the favorite keto power fat, wham-bam-thank-you-avo toast, here’s our top keto breakfast recipes, guaranteed to be simple, delicious, satisfying, with the bonus of ketone-boosting.

To Skip or Not to Skip Breakfast on Keto?

There was a widely-covered “study” before that linked skipping breakfast to atherosclerosis, the hardening of arteries. Time, the Guardian, the Telegraph, Men’s Fitness, Science Daily all wrote about it. Cereal companies must have rejoiced at that.

But the study points out that it’s what you eat after skipping that can be problematic.[*] Most Americans who skip breakfast also have an unhealthy lifestyle. It doesn’t matter if you fast. In fact, skipping breakfast can be beneficial [*] for obese patients. It’s what you eat that matters.

Breakfast– and all the other meals for that matter– is up to every individual’s preference. Skipping or not, as long as you make healthy choices, you’re golden.

On the ketogenic diet, you track everything, not just ketone levels. Mood, alertness, any digestive upsets– all these give you so much insight on what your body likes.

Do you perform best when you’ve eaten? Or do you feel more alert when you feel lighter on your tummy? Eat accordingly!
