Breakfast. The word literally means the act of “breaking the fast” of the night by giving your body the fuel it needs to rev itself up for the day. Unfortunately, many people choose to skip breakfast altogether or will consume something inadequate, such as a cup of coffee or a single bagel.

Because it sets the tone for your day, eating breakfast may be the single most important thing you do to avoid irritability, low performance and depression. Low-carb breakfasts and low-carb diets are especially important for those who are trying to lose weight or who are bodybuilding, since they do not cause weight gain and can help prevent lost muscle mass.

Top 50 Low-Carb Breakfast Recipes to Start Your Day

Skip directly to the appropriate section:

Sweet Breakfast Recipes

A “sweet” low-carb low-sugar breakfast simply means a meal with a relatively sweet taste to it. The fact that a meal is sweet doesn’t always mean that it is high in carbs. Stevia and Swerve are two examples of low-carb sweeteners, as are whole foods such as coconut and berries.

A recent study shows that consuming a small amount of dessert at breakfast may help reduce food cravings later in the day. Combined with a high-quality protein such as eggs, a relatively sweet breakfast will give you the foundation you need to ensure a continued sense of well-being throughout the day. Remember that eating breakfast can help prevent weight gain, since your body will not enter into “starvation mode” from lack of food.

Peppermint Patty Protein Shake

If you’re looking for a quick and easy low-carb breakfast on the go option, check out this clever protein shake idea. Cottage cheese gives it a rich consistency, while peppermint extract gives it a flavor boost. The use of stevia in this recipe as a sugar alternative helps keep the carb count low.

Salty Breakfast Ideas

Both sweet and salty (or savory) foods stimulate the appetite. Think of your body as having two separate satiety sensors, one for sweet foods and one for salty. If you fill up on something sweet, you may be unable to consume any more of that particular food. However, if you start on something salty, you may be surprised at how much you can eat. Some people struggle with alternate cravings for the sweet and the salty. Eating a substantial salty breakfast with sufficient protein can help balance these intense cravings while giving your body the nutrition it needs. Something sweet later on in the day may help eliminate food cravings.
