Starting the day with a satisfying breakfast is essential. When on a keto diet, a lot of the regular breakfast foods like cereal and toast become “no-go zones.” But don’t stress, there are heaps of tasty carb-free options that you can enjoy. One of our favorites is this maple pecan cottage cheese bowl.
This dish is full of goodness. The pecans are full of protein and important vitamins and minerals like calcium, potassium, and magnesium. They are also a great source of healthy fats and fiber, which will help you stay full in between meals. The other star ingredient of this dish is cottage cheese, which is protein-rich and is also a good source of calcium. Combined, these two superfoods are a great combo to eat in the morning and will set you up for the day ahead.
To give this dish some sweetness without the need for refined sugar, add some low-carb maple syrup. You can also add a pinch of lemon zest if you want to add some citrus to the dish.
