Okay! Let’s talk breakfast! In our house we have two young boys with never-ending appetites! So… they seem to want breakfast every single morning – keto has not changed that in them. My husband and I stopped wanting breakfast every morning a long time ago. We usually tend to fast through breakfast. While I have been pregnant I have been a little more hungry than usual in the morning, but nothing a couple sausage links or cup of BPC won’t fix… I still don’t want a full plate of bacon and eggs or anything else like that. If you or your household is anything like mine, making a full, hot breakfast for the kids every single morning is just not ideal. So, browse this post and find all the recipes I have blogged or linked up. I keep batches of multiple options in the freezer at all times so that I can just heat up what the boys ask for in the morning. If your kids are older, they can even heat theirs up themselves in the morning. Just because all that easy, processed junk is out of our houses, that does not mean convenience has to be completely out the window… you just have to do a little prep once in awhile!

French Toast Sticks! These came to me after remembering how something my oldest loved back in the non-keto days from a fast food chain. So easy for a quick, easy breakfast! Also perfect from the freezer!
Keto Pancake Sandwiches! If you ever loved drive-thru breakfast sandwiches, these are awesome. I keep all the separate pieces frozen in bags then pull out whats needed for one when they are requested and just heat it up and assemble. If hubby is hungry in the morning this is a great one to put in a piece of foil after heated and toss on top of his lunch box for him to grab on the way out the door.
Bacon and Eggs… I mean this is an old standard. We buy the 3lbs of thick sliced bacon from costco, cut each pack in 1/2 (so we get 4 days of bacon per 3lbs) and bake. I place the bacon on a well greased, foil lined baking sheet and bake at 425 until desired doneness. For our eggs, I only scramble… just beat the eggs and add in some heavy whipping cream – cook on medium until fluffy. This seems like something you can’t do ahead, but leave it to me to figure that one out too. Buy THESE awesome meal prep containers – undercook your bacon and eggs. Portion some of both into the containers and freeze – remove the bacon when you heat up the eggs – the bacon only needs about 30 seconds in the microwave to unfreeze.
These are some great ideas to really get you started! I will come back and add more as I cook / bake and photograph them!
