Breakfast can be tricky when doing a Whole30. You can easily burn out on basic scrambled eggs, veggies and avocado. And if you’re someone like me who really doesn’t even love breakfasts… then you’re in trouble!
I often eat leftover dinners or lunches for my breakfasts (yes, that means I enjoy Paleo Turkey Chili and Healthy Crockpot Pulled Pork at 8AM sometimes, judge me.) but these healthy whole30 breakfast recipes are great if that’s not your style.
What not to eat for Whole30 Breakfast:
Since grains, gluten, dairy, soy and sugar are off limits that means no: toast, pancakes, oatmeal, muffins, and breads.
Don’t worry though, there are PLENTY of options below. I try to focus on the things we can have when doing a whole30 rather than all the things we can’t have!
Easy Whole30 Breakfast Ideas:
If you need a quick breakfast idea, you can mix and match any of the following portions for a balanced breakfast:
- Protein: Hard Boiled Eggs, Sausage, Any of the frittata’s/casseroles mentioned below
- Carbs: Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Crispy Potatoes, Sweet potato ‘toast’, Spiralized Potatoes, Baked Fries
- Veggies: Roasted Veggies, Salad, Tomato Salad,
- Healthy Fat: Olives, Avocado, Ghee, Crispy Bacon
- Drinks: We love our coffee with this Whole30 friendly half and half or homemade almond milk, sometimes we will make a Pumpkin Spice Latte or a Turmeric Ginger Latte. You can also drink cold brew, unsweetened tea, or infused water.
What makes these recipes whole30?
All of these recipes are: dairy free, gluten free, grain free, soy free, sugar free and legume free. They’re also delicious!
