Keto Breakfast Preparations

May 27, 2018

I spent some time putting together a few breakfasts for my Keto diet.  I think a lot of people find breakfast on this diet to be easy but I am not a huge fan of eggs so I definitely find it more challe

nging.  Part of my preparation was eggs.  I made scrambled eggs and added bacon as well as mushrooms to some of the eggs.  It ended up being two eggs per serving and approximately two slices of bacon.  When I added mushrooms, it was roughly one mushroom, sliced.  I also didn't let any of the bacon drippings go to waste.  I cooked the bacon in batches and in between each batch I did a few servings of eggs.  The mushrooms received the same treatment.  These containers are now safely in my freezer waiting for a day for me to be interested in eggs.  I will likely also have either cheddar or mozzarella cheese on hand in case I want some cheese.

 

The other breakfast I made was fake oatmeal.  Oatmeal is my normal breakfast and I eat it with cocoa powder, Ovaltine and peanut butter which makes it taste great without adding a ton of sugar.  But Keto says no oatmeal so I had to be inventive.  I looked at a few different recipes online and then made it my own.  For the base, each serving has:

 

2 Tbsp hemp seeds

1 tsp ground flax seed

1 tsp chia seeds

0.5 Tbsp ground almonds

1 Tbsp of unsweetened coconut

0.25 cup coconut milk

pinch of salt (which you can omit if you're concerned about your sodium intake)

small amount of Stevia sweetener

 

I then added some flavoring.  I made a pumpkin pie flavor with 2 Tbsp of pureed pumpkin, a few pecans and some pumpkin pie spice.  The next flavor was chocolate peanut butter raspberry.  This one had 1 Tbsp of cocoa, 1 Tbsp of peanut butter and some frozen raspberries.  Then I did a raspberry cheesecake and a raspberry chocolate cheesecake.  These ones had 0.5 Tbsp of full fat cream cheese, frozen raspberries and the chocolate one had 1 Tbsp of cocoa  powder.  All flavors were shaken and then put in the freezer.  I didn't taste as I went so I will report back in on how this turned out as far as taste and texture.

 

The next food I will be preparing are fat bombs.  I plan on doing three flavors for this one as well - cheesecake, Bounty bar, and chocolate peanut butter.  All three are classic flavor pairings in my eyes so hopefully it goes well.  I'll have more pictures soon.
