Each of these low carb breakfast options is rich in protein and healthy fats and should keep you feeling satisfied and energetic for hours — though some would be even healthier by choosing a less processed protein source.

Another option is to simply cook more than you need at dinner, then heat it up and eat it for breakfast the next morning.

The possibilities for healthy, low carb meals are endless, allowing you to find the right dish for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks.
