If you’ve ever done Whole30, you know that breakfasts can be a challenge, since traditional a.m. fare like pancakes, oatmeal, grain bowls, and avocado toast are off the menu. Luckily, Whole30 has become so popular that there are tons of recipes out there to help you through. We found 5 breakfast options so satisfying and delicious, you’ll love them any time, whether you’re following Whole30 or not.
A salad for breakfast? For sure, especially when it’s topped with an egg and garnished with berries and sweet potato. You’ll get lots of healthy fats from the avocado, protein from the egg, and fiber from the sweet potatoes. The creamy cilantro dressing adds texture to tie it all together and provide even more satiety.
This hearty, banana almond chia pudding will give your brain a jump-start. Coconut milk makes it super rich and creamy, and sliced toasted almonds on top add crunch.
3. Banana Bread Pancakes from Tastes Lovely
OK, so technically you aren’t supposed to have pancakes on Whole 30. We gave these a pass since they’re made with banana, eggs and cinnamon — and that’s it. They’re quick and easy, especially when topped with almond butter (which adds extra protein and good fats, too). Bonus: They’re paleo-friendly, too.
This hearty frittata means you don’t have to decide between sweet and savory. Protein- and choline-rich eggs and a healthy portion of spinach and scallions make it a complete meal in one. Bonus: Leftovers make a tasty lunch or dinner.
Sausage and hash browns are a classic for breakfast — and when you make it into an egg bake and use sausage without additives, it’s Whole30-approved, too. Since this recipe was created by two dietitians, you know it’s balanced with plenty of vegetables.
