Low Carb Spring Breakfasts

March 27, 2019

Whether you’re running out the door to work or have time for a leisurely meal, there’s always time for breakfast. This first meal of the day ensures you have consistent blood sugar levels throughout the day, with fewer cravings, while keeping your hunger under control.

 Low Carb Breakfasts On the Go

In a hurry? No worries! While oatmeal, cereal, a bagel or yogurt may seem like easy on-the-go options, they may be loaded with Hidden Sugars, which means they will raise your blood sugar levels after eating them, possibly leading to weight gain.

 Here’s how you can make delicious low carb swaps that are quick, convenient and sometimes even portable:

 Swap fruit-flavored yogurt for full-fat Greek yogurt with berries

 Swap packaged and sweetened oatmeal for Oatmeal with Cantaloupe and Turkey Sausage, or just the time it takes to heat that bowl of oatmeal, you can whip up an Atkins Breakfast Bowl.

 Swap a granola bar for Atkins Harvest Trail Bars or Atkins Meal Bars or you can try this low carb granola recipe.

Swap sugary smoothies for an Atkins Shake or you can whip up your own low carb Blackberry Smoothie or my Antioxidant Berry Smoothie from page 116 of my book, Eat Right, Not Less.

Swap a bagel and cream cheese for this Cheesy Bacon Cloud Muffin

 Low Carb Breakfasts Worth Lingering Over

If time is on your side, then a homemade low carb breakfast or brunch with your family is definitely in order.

 Eggs and bacon are naturally low in carbs, but here’s how you can make some delicious low carb swaps for other traditional breakfast or brunch dishes that are usually higher in carbs and sugar:

 Swap pancakes for Lemony Protein Pancakes

 Swap waffles for Fluffy Flax Waffles

 Swap quiche for Crustless Spinach Quiche or Egg-Filled Avocado with Prosciutto from page 116 of my book, Eat Right, Not Less.

 Swap breakfast pastries for low carb Apple Muffins with Cinnamon, Pecan Streusel
