I am on a low carb breakfast rampage!
Since I have been doing this ketogenic diet a low carb breakfast has taken a whole new meaning. We are very far here from the espresso and croissant breakfast of my fellow Italians…
More than ever I realize how important breakfast is in the daily scope of things, especially regarding your blood glucose levels. You can stray a bit for lunch, but really breakfast and dinner are your two pillars for building the foundation of a level and healthy blood glucose.
You will see a lot of cheese and bacon in most ketogenic, low carb breakfast recipes. As the purpose of this blog is to bring you HEALTHY food, I am trying a bit harder.
Saturated fat and weight loss
Eating a lot of saturated fat during the adaptation phase of the ketogenic diet will result in a slower rate weight loss, as your body is trying to get rid of it’s own fat.
Also do not forget that the meat of feedlot raised animals contains high levels of Omega 6’s, which raise inflammation in the body.
Wild caught salmon is a good healthy fat alternative, so are organic avocados. Of course if you can find pastured beef and pork, that is a good option too, really worth investing the extra dollar.
Here is a simple but yummy recipe for you, with an even simpler variation.
