Starting the day eating healthy breakfasts without bread can help you lose weight. In Irvine, CA, many people are turning to creative options that keep you full longer yet are far healthier than their counterparts containing bread. Instead of toast, why not opt for sweet potato toast instead. Top it with homemade cashew spread and berries or spread mashed avocado and top it with an egg for the perfect healthy breakfast that keeps you full longer.
Speaking of avocados, why not use them to hold your egg?
Eggs, salt and pepper, and avocado create a delicious breakfast. Top it with bell peppers, spinach, bacon, or herbs for variety. Cut the avocado in half, remove the seed, and place in a dish. Fill each empty pit with an egg. For runny yolks, cut the avocado in half and put an egg in the center of each half. If you like your yolk firm, scramble the egg before adding. Add any toppings you desire. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 400 degrees.
Who needs toast when you have tomatoes?
Create a culinary dish your family will love that’s easy with medium-sized tomatoes, eggs, avocado oil, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Cut the tomatoes down the middle through the stem area. Scoop out the seeds and pulp. Spray the tomatoes with avocado oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper. Add other seasonings, like garlic powder, if you choose. Break the eggs into the middle of the tomato, top with Parmesan cheese, and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. It’s a delicious way to serve eggs without the need for toast.
Vegetable Frittatas can be keto-friendly and don’t require bread.
Combine eight large eggs with ¼ cup of milk or cream, salt, and pepper. Whisk them together in a bowl for the base of the frittata. In an oven-safe skillet—10″ cast iron is best, sauté your favorite veggies and meat. It takes about 2 ½ to 4 cups raw for the final 2 cups needed for the frittata. Pour the egg mixture and 2/3 cup of cheese into the pan and stir. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees until the center sets and the top is puffy.
- Make a breadless breakfast sandwich with eggs for the outside instead of a muffin. Cook the sausage and eggs in a 3 ½ inch biscuit cutter for the perfect shape. Top the sausage with guacamole for even more flavor.
- Omelets are filling and versatile. Add your favorite fillings and cheese to match your dietary and taste preferences.
- Make chia pudding. Mix ½ C milk of choice, 2-4 T chia seeds, 1 T vanilla extract, and 1 tsp honey. Stir the milk and chia seeds, let stand for 15 minutes, and add honey and vanilla. Put in a blender, then refrigerate for at least two hours. Add your favorite fruit, nut butter, or topping.
- Saute your favorite veggies and meats. Spoon the ingredients into large portabella mushroom caps with the stem and gills removed. You can omit the veggies and add an egg instead. Top with cheese. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
