As chiropractors, we’re always looking for ways to enhance our energy in order to be able to serve powerfully and share knowledge from experience with our clients. Starting the day with vegetables, healthy fats, adequate protein and minimal carbs is a great way to get good nutrition and build a foundation for stable energy throughout the day.
This recipe is our go-to morning meal while we’ve been enjoying our keto cleanse/diet. This recipe is easy to make and super tasty! We prioritize simplicity and nutrition when it comes to meal preparation which is one reason why this is a top breakfast choice in our home.
As we’ve been sharing, Dr. Rob and I are really enjoying our recent keto diet. We’re learning so much which we’ll share more about soon. What we’re learning is mostly through the feeling in our body and through the use of our nutrient calculator. Because we’re burning mostly fat instead of carbohydrate, we’re not experiencing any fluctuations in our energy level. We’ve been feeling strong and steady throughout the day without that low in the afternoon or that nappy feeling that can come after eating a meal. We’re really loving these gains and it’s making us think about what we can do to maintain this new energized state when we shift back towards a more vegetarian diet (and away from keto). Regardless, we fully expect this breakfast to remain a staple meal for our start to the day.
At 12 grams of net carbohydrates per serving, this meal, although still low in carbohydrates, is on the high end for carbohydrates in a keto meal. Our goal for keto is generally around 30 grams of net carbs per day, so we are definitely mindful of that for the rest of the day after we eat this meal!
