Fat Fueled Mornings: Breakfast the Keto Way

Hey there, keto fam I'm Heather

This is What's Up Wednesday Welcome! Today, over on the blog, it's recipe day This is the favorite day for a lot of you, looking to incorporate more keto ideas your diet, into your lifestye And today I really went basic because I didn't want to overwhelm you and I want to give you some really easy things that you can incorporate into your daily life that are going to make all the difference in the world So, my two recipes are really about eggs and avocado

Those are the favorite things in my house, so I always have eggs and I always have avocados Most of you probably know that I do intermittent fasting A lot of you are still under the assumption that breakfast is the most important meal of the day I hate to break it to you but it's not And I'm living proof that it's not

For me, I usually end my eating window between 6 and 7 at night I don't eat usually until between 11 and 12 the next day I don't eat because I'm not hungry it's kind of this amazing thing that happens when you're in ketosis and you're eating the right foods, you become a fat-burner, so you're able to go longer periods of time without eating It's kind of amazing

But when you do eat, when I eat, I don't eat breakfast but I eat to break my fast I'm a very busy person like many of you I don't want to have to spend hours thinking about, "Oh, what kind of snacks can I eat during the week What can I make for lunch?" Food is fuel And I really look at food as fuel because I know what it can do for my body

I know the freedom that I get when I'm not chained to the kitchen and trying to meal plan everything I spend the majority of my time for meal planning, and prepping, and shopping for dinner And I usually eat, like I said, I'm done eating between 6 and 7 A lot of times, I will eat between 4:30 and 5:30 just because that works for me I work out of my house and my family are on really crazy schedules, so we don't really get to sit down as a family very often to eat, so they're just kind of grabbing stuff whenever they get home

So I can eat, I have the freedom to eat, whenever I want What I ideally look for when I'm breaking my fast is something that's simple, that's easy, that I don't have to think too hard about That I don't have to spend 20 or 30 minutes in the kitchen making Easy clean-up And something that's good

Obviously I'm not eating stuff that i don't like But I want to be strategic about my eating and I'm looking for something that will fuel me to dinnertime So, if I'm eating at 4:30 or 5 o'clock, but I'm breaking my fast at 11, between 11 and 12, that's a pretty big window But when I do run errands and I do a lot of things out of the house and I do coaching calls and I don't want to have to worry about what's going to happen if I've got back-to-back coaching calls and I haven't been able to eat anything That doesn't become an issue any longer

For me, when I break my fast, between 11 and 12, it is rare for me to get hungry before dinner That's kind of magical And it's freedom And it's also a reminder that when I eat the right things, I don't have blood sugar crashes, I don't have cravings, I'm not foraging 3 o'clock in the afternoon, looking in the pantry going what can I eat now? I don't have any of those things And so, my gift to you is these two recipes and I fully encourage you to get in there and try them

One of them's egg and avocado, like fry it up and throw it on an avocado, it's not hard The other one is the avocado egg salad These are not difficult things to make They are tasty Avocado doesn't really have much of a taste

It takes on whatever flavor you've got I love runny yolks over my avocado and then some garlic, or garlic powder, sometimes I add that in, or salt and pepper You can even put hot sauce on it if you wanted to My son loves hot sauce on his eggs and avocado So many different things you can do: you can throw cheese on it, whatever you want to do, it's right there

That's the basis of it, so you can get a little creative But these are things that you can incorporate into your life tomorrow And see what that does for you Instead of starting your day off with what is a typical breakfast in America, which is carbs, lots of protein You know, I do caution you on making sure that you're not eating too many eggs

Because the eggs have protein and too much protein isn't great for us either You figure out what works for you Maybe try the two eggs with a full avocado, see how that does for you and maybe, like me, I was too full with the two eggs and a whole avocado, so I backed it down to one egg and a whole avocado and that worked really well for me But I do have a little bit of protein in my fatted-up coffee, I've got collagen, which does have protein in it So that's where I caution you if you're having a bulletproof coffee with collagen, that's got protein, so just be aware that when you're breakfast, or breaking your fast, that there's protein in different things

If you're adding cheese, look to see how much protein there, as well If you're adding veggies, look to see how much protein is in those things you're adding into it I think you will find if you just use these couple of recipes to start you're day whenever you're eating breakfast or breaking your fast, instead of loading up on carbs or proteins, that you'll find that you'll be able to much longer through the day, that snacking may not be an issue for you, that you may not have the blood sugar crashes because if you're eating a typical diet in the morning, you're probably hungry again – if you eat at 7 and you're having toast and eggs or cereal or granola or oatmeal or any of the things that we've been taught are good things to eat – you're probably having some kind of blood sugar crash by 10 or 11 And you're finding that you're hungry again That's a really good indication that you're having insulin spikes, that you're using glucose when we want to use fat to burn

Big tip, right there By the way, there's going to be more of these I've got an announcement tomorrow So I really want you to stay tuned for that, it's going to be something especially for you people who have yet to really embrace the keto life or aren't even sure we're going to make it clear for you I'm going to make it clear for you In the meantime, I do want to remind everybody, today's the last day for my lowest rates for my coaching packages I have a 3 and 6 month coaching package
