Since starting the keto diet, I've had a difficult time adjusting to my new breakfast routine. If you're like me, my breakfast consists of some variation of eggs and cheese every day, which can quickly get boring. Not that eggs are not delicious, but there are only so many variations of ways to eat them before you're sick of them. Although I did know coming into the keto diet that many people struggle with finding great alternatives to mix things up, I did not expect to have these few options for breakfast specifically.
As the most important meal of the day, breakfast is crucial to get your day started efficiently, and for those of us on keto, keeping us in ketosis with the appropriate macros. Your main goal within the keto diet is to push your body into, and staying within, ketosis.
What is Ketosis?
Ketosis occurs within your body when you push your body into prominently burning fat for energy instead of your body's traditional carbohydrates (probably including your favorite breakfast items). This is achievable by cutting down carb intake exponentially while also increasing your fat intake responsibly. Keeping your body fueled with the correct macros and foods is vital to get your body into this state of ketosis, help you get through your day energized, and hit your health and weight goals.
Where it also left me was eating eggs very often for breakfast because of how effective it was for keeping me in ketosis. They are also extremely easy to make and perfect on the go keto breakfast (in the form of boiled eggs). But I quickly have gotten sick of even the smell of eggs at this point, so what else?
In this time of doubt, with my breakfast routine, I can't help but reminisce about my old breakfast habits. I miss indulging myself with so many carbs; the bread, potatoes, cereal, and oh yes, the pancakes. These are just things we have to learn to forfeit (mostly) while looking for success on the keto diet. Of course, there are alternatives, but we all know those don't taste the same as the original thing.
Searching for the Perfect Keto Breakfast
There are thousands of keto recipes online that you can experiment with, just as I have. You'll find that most of them end up being very disappointing and not a viable replacement for the void in your heart left by your old favorites. I have dearly missed one breakfast carb-filled item—bagels, for its efficiency in being a quick, delicious, and an adaptable breakfast item.
If you were to look online for a keto bagel recipe, you'd find that most of the recipes don't turn out looking much like any bagel you have seen before. They end up more like flat, tasteless saucers that don't help satisfy any bagel craving. Similar to where I found myself with many other keto recipes online, I was now unsuccessful in satisfying my cravings of the past while still staying within ketosis.
If you wanted to start a keto diet 10 years ago, you probably would have had difficulty finding a variety for your diet, due to a lack of viable options available in mainstream supermarkets and stores. It was not as popular as it currently is, and therefore companies were not interested in tapping into such a small portion of the market. Many people would find themselves eating the same recipes repeatedly and getting sick of the repetition and lack of flavor. It would be challenging to stay focused and dedicated to a strict diet if you began to get bored with what was available to you.
