The Best Simple Keto Breakfast Recipe – Eggs and Spinach
The Usual Morning Routine
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Every night when you go to bed, you swear that you’re going to get up early to feed yourself properly. But what happens when the alarm goes off? You think, “Ugh, it can’t be 6:30 already,” and hit the snooze button.
Even if you actually manage to get out of bed, there’s still a lot that gets in the way. Either you’ve not checked the time and spent too long practising the work presentation you have to present in exactly 2 and a half hours, or the kids have done something silly, like squirted toothpaste on their school uniforms. Or just feel so groggy, you genuinely can’t be bothered.
Well, The Keto Cookbook is not here to load you with excuses, but instead come to the ultimate rescue! We’ve developed the best simple keto breakfast recipe that is not only quick and tasty, but is full of the fats and vitamins needed to keep you going to lunchtime. It will even keep revving up your metabolism without you even noticing!
Convinced? Let’s take a look.
This recipe contains only 7 ingredients that are so easy to prepare, you could almost make this dish with your eyes closed (but please do not try this!). The main ingredients in this are eggs and spinach, which do wonders to your body. Eggs contain good levels of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc and iron. A lot of cereal is fortified with these sorts of ingredients, but trust us, it’s better to get your vitamins and minerals from healthier food sources.
Like eggs, spinach also contains iron, but also vitamins A, B2, C and K and magnesium, manganese, folate, calcium and potassium. Phew! That was a long list! These vitamins and minerals are so important to keep our body functioning properly and can really help prevent some diseases that are developed later in life.
In our opinion, just eggs and spinach is a bit of a plain meal. So we’ve ramped up the flavor with garlic, onion and if you’re brave, some red chilli powder! Those flavors are definitely worth getting up for in the morning!
This breakfast recipe is the ultimate meal if you’re a keto fan like us. This is because it contains only 1 gram of net carbs, which also makes it wonderful for those following a similar Atkins style diet. There’s also no sugar! Yes, you heard us right, NO sugar! Which means it’s also great for those watching their sugar content. Finally, it only comes in at 481 calories, whilst packing in a massive 20 grams of protein and 43 grams of fat! If you’re a new reader, you may have panicked at the word “fat”, but trust us, these are healthy fats. These are essential for maintaining muscle and protecting your heart.
So, now there’s really no need to panic about making a simple keto breakfast in the morning. Just follow this recipe and you’ll always be good to go!
In a pan, melt 2 tablespoons of your butter, and add in your Garlic, Onion Salt, Chilli Powder, Salt and your Spinach. Stir the spinach around in the butter until it is wilted.
In a separate pan, melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and crack in your eggs. You want to fry them for about 4 minutes until they are white and solid. Then you flip the egg over so the yolk is facing down, and fry for a further minute. Don't fry too long or you will lose your nice runny yoke.
There you have it! Serve your eggs up on a plate next to your tasty wilted spinach. A super easy keto breakfast that you can throw together in less than 10 minutes. Add some bacon on the side if you want to boost your fat and protein.
