The keto diet is popular with dieters as they can eat delicious food and still lose weight. Keto recipes must be low or no carb, with the emphasis being on protein and natural fats, such as cheese or avocado. So with cereal out of the question, what can slimmers eat for breakfast on a ketogenic diet? And which of the available recipes is best for staying fuller for longer? There are, in fact, a wealth of breakfast options in this diet thanks to the fact that eggs are allowed.
And as eggs are high in protein, they will prevent hunger pangs for longer, keeping keto followers full until lunchtime.
One popular keto breakfast recipe is egg butter with smoked salmon and avocado, shared on Diet Doctor.
This meal, which serves two, contains five grams of carbs, 14 grams of fibre, 116 grams of fat and a whopping 50 grams of protein per portion.
Four eggs are hard-boiled in simmering water for eight minutes, before being placed in ice-cold water to cool.
Once cool, the eggs should be chopped finely and mixed with five ounces of room temperature butter.
This mix is then served one sliced avocado and two ounces of smoked salmon per person.
The keto diet can be very successful, with many devotees sharing their before and after transformation pictures online.
