1. The comforter:
A delicious hot meal to start your day in under 15 mins? Yes please. This is the perfect breakfast or brunch to kick off your day, and can be adapted to your favourite foods or seasonal food shop. It may be low-carb but it’ll certainly keep you full with the addition of cannellini beans: a great source of fibre, B- vitamins, iron, zinc and potassium. What are you waiting for: get cracking!View Recipe
2. For the always-running-late-rs:
Blueberry and Almond Yoghurt
Running late is never a good enough excuse to miss out on a great breakfast. It’s time to throw out those sugary cereal bars, and try this easy loaded yoghurt ( it can be prepped the night before, too). This low-carb breakfast is bursting with flavour and antioxidants, with chia seeds high in omega-3 fatty acids, and topped with blueberries and almonds. Not only is it quick to grab out of the fridge, it contains ingredients proven to promote clearer thinking and good mood: perfect for a full work day!View Recipe
4. The full of fibre bowl:
Green Brekkie Bowl
Fibre loves your body, and your body loves fibre. Humans evolved to take in fibre from a wide variety of plant sources, but achieving this can be hard in a modern world. This low-carb breakfast bowl is a powerful ally. Kale, courgette, baby mushrooms and raw spinach play support to avocado and a double serving of eggs, ensuring that you get plenty of protein as well. You’ll conquer the world.View Recipe
3. For dessert lovers:
Chia Breakfast Bircher
Another one for pre-prepping, as this low-carb breakfast keeps in the fridge for up to three days! At The Fast 800 we are passionate about texture and flavour, which is why we love this recipe. Creamy, full-fat coconut milk and rolled oats will keep you fuller for longer, and the naturally intense sweetness of berries and passion fruit tastes seriously indulgent first thing in the morning. Who knew that low-carb breakfasts could taste like desserts?View Recipe
5. The weekend showstopper:
Mexican Baked Avocado & Eggs
Low-carb breakfasts can be luxurious, and this one delivers five-star plate appeal. Baked avocado and egg is delicious enough on its own – served with a fresh lime juice-based salsa, and you’re frankly showing off. One for a special breakfast in bed, served with hot coffee and a big smile.View Recipe
