What Do You Eat For Breakfast When Banting?
During the week we love simple breakfasts. I’m 100% fine with scrambled eggs or fried eggs and either bacon or sausage for breakfast every day. But on the weekends we like getting a little fancier.
Preparing a banting breakfast is no different than preparing any other banting meal. Simply focus on your macros, then fill in those macros with nutrient-dense foods.
#1: Pick Your Protein
Virtually any Green List protein source works well for breakfast. But if low carb breakfasts are still new to you (meaning you are used to cereal and toast with fruit juice), you might want to stick to those foods commonly associated with breakfast. This includes eggs, bacon, sausage patties, mincemeat, and salmon.
#2: Include a Healthy Fat
This may already be in your protein. For example, bacon and eggs have fat in them. But if your protein source is “lean”, add some fat in the form of butter, cream (in coffee or tea), or cheese.
#3: (If desired) Add Banting Green List Vegetables or Fruits
While eating veggies for breakfast might be a new concept for you, know that it’s important to get these important micronutrients throughout the day, rather than just at lunch and dinner. As you’ll see below, there are many delicious ways to add veggies to a banting breakfast.
