For many people breakfast is the main meal of the day, so it should be healthy and nourishing. The most popular breakfast meals are porridge, flakes and eggs. Keeping keto diet is not a reason to reduce the habits. Here are the three traditional morning meals that can be had as keto breakfast.
Almond porridge keto recipe
One of the best options is of course porridge. As it is not only the most popular breakfast, but also the healthiest. A good portion of low-carb porridge for breakfast is even better than its usual high-carb option. Keto porridge is very easy to prepare. In addition, you can change the proportions and ingredients, cook your own ways to create variations for each day.
If you like spicy tastes do not spare cinnamon and cardamom, nutmeg and ginger are also suits well.
For lovers of something crispy adding a mixture of seeds and nuts is good. Of course, do not forget to choose nuts that contain the least amount of carbohydrates. For example, we recommend protein-rich hemp seeds.
If you like fruit for keto breakfast, you can choose the least sweet or just add them in a small amount to taste.
There are many ways to adapt the regular morning porridge for keto diet, you can see some of them here. People come up to it with different ingredients and proportions. And the recipe below is the way to make keto breakfast porridge most creamy and fat.
When cooking keto dishes in the first place it is worth remembering the amount of carbohydrates, and the second fat. To increase the amount of fat in low-carb porridge, you can add butter, coconut or peanut butter. In addition, the porridge can be served with greek or keto yogurt or even sour cream. Simple almond porridge with low carbs will never be boring because there are many ways to diversify the recipe that have been described above. If you want to sweeten a little, use fibrous low-carb syrups or sweetener.
