Whether it’s your first whole30 or fifth whole30, you’ve probably thought: well if there is no gluten, grains, soy, dairy, or sugar… what CAN I eat for breakfast?! That’s why I rounded up these Whole30 Breakfast Recipes for you!
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 8 AM sometimes, judge me.) but these healthy whole30 breakfast recipes are great if that’s not your style.

Whole30 Recipe Resources:
Whole30 Breakfast: Healthy Quiche
- Preheat oven to 450. Grease a glass pie plate by spraying with olive or coconut oil.
- Grate potatoes. Squeeze as much liquid out of potatoes with a paper towel or dish towel. In a bowl, toss grated potatoes with 1 tablespoon flaxseed cooking oil.
- Press the potatoes into the pie plate to form a crust. Bake the crust in the oven for 20 minutes or until edges start to brown.
- While crust is baking, whisk together eggs + almond milk. Chop vegetables + stir into egg mixture with seasonings.
- Once crust has cooked, pour egg/veggie mixture into the crust + return to the oven for an additional 20 minutes.
- Allow quiche to cool for 10 minutes + serve.
- vegetables – You can use any vegetable you like! I used a mix of tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, peppers, and onions – but anything would go great in this! You need about a cup and a half of vegetables in total (except for spinach) to fit well in an 8 inch shallow pie plate.
- milk – I used almond milk in this recipe to keep it paleo/whole30 but if you don’t follow those diets you can use regular milk
- cheese– Cheese is not part of Whole30/paleo – but if you’re not following those diets I highly recommend adding in goat cheese or parmesan to this. It adds so much flavor!
