Bulk up on a low carb breakfast!
Here’s a power breakfast for a power day! I’ve recently been working out more and my protein and fat consumption needs have increased as well. Instead of packing more calories into dinner at the end of the day, I decided to bulk up my breakfast and eat something I’d usually only eat at a diner – steak!
Paired with some sunny side up eggs and avocado, you get a big dose of fat and protein with a whopping 500 calories of low carb, delicious goodness. I could start any day like this! Eating this many calories right away helped fuel me through my workout and also kept me feeling full all the way to lunch. Not once did I consider a snack or felt hungry. In fact, I almost forgot to eat at lunchtime! Preparing such a hearty breakfast definitely has its benefits.
The best steak cuts for breakfast are flank, skirt and sirloin. These are tougher cuts that are great when sliced thin so they’re ideal for breakfast cooking. Simply season your steak with salt and pepper, cut it into thin strips or tips and fry them along with your eggs. It’s convenient and super quick if you need a high-calorie breakfast.
You may also want to put your keto steak and eggs inside a low carb tortilla wrap. Toss in some cheese and you have an amazing new meal. You can even throw in some low carb hot sauce to make the breakfast burrito have a spicy twist. The possibilities are endless!
Consuming a lot of red meat has always been portrayed as a bad choice. However, we are here to tell you differently. Red meat actually has a lot of health benefits. To begin, red meat, such as steak, is high in zinc which helps keep your immune system functioning properly. It has lots of vitamin B12 which will keep your red blood cells healthy. It is also packed with protein which helps grow your bones and muscles (perfect for those who are working out and trying to stay in shape!).
Eating lots of red meat may not be ideal but we aren’t saying this tasty, low carb breakfast should be your every day, go-to meal. No way! Anyway, why would you want it to be when we have so many other amazing breakfast recipes on our website for you to try? However, you definitely should give this steak and eggs a try and it would be good to have a few times a week, especially on those days when you are planning a long workout or just need a hearty breakfast to help you power through the morning.
So heat up that frying pan, get out that steak and start cooking- you are going to love having steak at breakfast (it just seems so fancy!).
