Start Your Day Out Right With These Keto Breakfast Ideas

We all know that breakfast is an important meal to fuel your day. Getting a filling, delicious breakfast starts you out on the right foot. If you're following keto, though, you might be a little sick of bacon and eggs for breakfast.

If you're looking for keto breakfast ideas to branch out your usual morning repertoire, we've got you covered! Here are some fantastic, filling breakfast ideas that don’t seem like the typical go-to options.

Rice for Breakfast?

We're all about savory breakfast ideas. An egg-filled avocado, some sausage and egg bites, or maybe a breakfast steak. But what about getting a little unconventional? Have you ever thought of low-carb rice for breakfast?

Well, first of all, rice for breakfast isn't as "out there" as you might think. Around the world, people enjoy rice and even noodles as part of their morning meals. But of course, if you’re following a low-carb meal plan, you probably believe that rice and pasta are off the table.

But you can still enjoy your favorite comfort “carbs” with It’s Skinny! It’s Skinny Rice and Pasta allow you to enjoy all your favorite dishes with ZERO net carbs and only 9 calories per pack. What’s more? These pasta and rice alternatives are delicious!

In fact, diet expert Jorge Cruise calls It’s Skinny one of his favorite solutions for a “no break-fast breakfast,” recommending it to those following keto and intermittent fasting plans. You can have a whole bowl of It’s Skinny Pasta or It's Skinny Rice, and it won't take you out of keto or cause you to break your intermittent fast!

So if you’re looking for an enjoyable keto breakfast that’s a little outside the norm, give It’s Skinny a try. You can enjoy any of our pasta or noodle recipes for breakfast, but we find that breakfast is an especially good meal for It’s Skinny Rice.

Most people worry that a breakfast of rice or pasta would leave them feeling too full and sluggish to start the day, but the truth is that with It’s Skinny, you don’t have to worry about the carb coma. It’s Skinny is light but filling. It contains ultra-satiating glucomannan fiber, which keeps your blood sugar steady and helps you feel full all day.

There are plenty of ways to customize It’s Skinny (and we’ll get to that in a moment), but if you’re the type of person who prefers a recipe, we have some low-carb keto breakfast ideas to get your day (and your stomach) started.

  • Sausage—breakfast, chorizo, or even Italian
  • Crumbled bacon, prosciutto, or chopped ham
  • Sauteed mushrooms
  • Leftover steak
  • Chopped nuts
  • Salmon or smoked salmon
  • Tofu
  • Heavy Cream
  • Ricotta or cottage cheese

There are so many options! Adding It’s Skinny to your breakfast lineup makes your mornings fast, simple, and filling.

What’s more, there’s almost no prep time to make It's Skinny Pasta or Rice. Simply tear open the pack, rinse, and drain. Then, add your It's Skinny Rice or Pasta to the other ingredients at the end of cooking time and allow them to heat through. It takes about 2 minutes—perfect for those busy mornings when you need a hearty breakfast but also need to get out the door.

What Should I Have with My It’s Skinny Breakfast?

So, how does It’s Skinny get such impressive keto-friendly stats? Let’s introduce you to a funny little vegetable named Konjac.

Konjac is actually a root. It’s similar to a turnip, radish, or potato. By itself, it’s not much to look at, but it happens to make a perfect ingredient for low-carb, satisfying pasta. Konjac contains a fiber known as glucomannan. This fiber fills you up, keeps blood sugar steady, and passes through your body without making you gain weight.

Each package of It’s Skinny has only 9 calories and ZERO net carbs. What’s more, the texture is spot on with traditional pasta or rice. The flavor of It’s Skinny is mild and won't overpower the other ingredients in your dish. It takes on those surrounding flavors (just like pasta or rice).

We offer It’s Skinny Pasta in three varieties:

  • ·      Spaghetti
  • ·      Fettuccine
  • ·      Angel Hair

It’s Skinny Rice might be the best choice for breakfast, but we’ve never said no to noodles! You can adapt any recipe to go with any It’s Skinny products. We also offer a variety pack with Spaghetti, Angel Hair, Fettuccine, AND Rice so you can try them all.

It's Skinny is the keto-dieter's secret to success. It allows you to crush your cravings and enjoy all the comfort foods—for breakfast, lunch, and dinner—that you love without derailing your progress or shifting your body out of ketosis.

One tip for keto dieters is to avoid too much deprivation. When we focus on the foods we “can’t” have, we often start to cheat and go off track. If you want to stay successful on the keto plan, find ways to modify your favorite meals.

It’s Skinny helps you remake and update all your favorites—Thai Drunken Noodles, Spaghetti Bolognese, Shrimp Scampi, and Chicken Fettuccine. You can even use the noodles to make Deconstructed Lasagna, Chicken Noodle Soup, and much more.

It’s Skinny is the perfect way to start your day. Enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a healthy snack. When you need to eat something filling and satisfying, we’ve got you covered all day long!
