Easy keto breakfast ideas and must-have staples:

The name of the game when it comes to sticking with Keto is to start the day out on track, and do that by always having the right stuff on hand. As long as you have the following items in your pantry or refrigerator, you’ll never get stuck without a keto breakfast option:

  • Eggs. This is a keto no-brainer, but eggs can be cooked so many ways (even in the microwave, which isn’t as tasty, but works in a pinch).
  • Bacon. The easiest (and cleanest!) way to cook bacon is in the oven. Use a foil-lined baking sheet and cook for 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees. For crispier bacon, add an oven-safe rack to your baking sheet.
  • Avocado. Have ripe and not-yet ripe ones on hand at all times.
  • Cheese. String, sliced, melted, doesn’t matter how you do it up, cheese is your keto BFF.
  • Cold cuts. This gives you an easy meat option if you need something fast and don’t feel like cooking.
  • Keto cereal. This works in a pinch if you aren’t feeling eggs and bacon and you don’t have time to make your own keto granola.
