Check out this collection of amazing weight loss recipes for breakfast. Nutritionists say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And, partly, it is true. What you eat for breakfast can determine your appetite and food behavior during the day.
Especially, it can be crucial for women with PCOS and insulin resistance. I mentioned in my post “PCOS weight loss diet plan” that it’s better to avoid carbs for breakfast if you want to keep your insulin levels under control and to lose weight effectively. Therefore, traditional morning meals such as cereals or pancakes can be not the best options for you.
In this post, I’ll share weight loss recipes for breakfast meals that are full of protein, low in carbs and very delicious. Give them a try and let me know which one is your favorite!
Burritos and other types of wraps usually are the perfect options for those who take breakfast with them to work/study. They are very convenient and you can put a lot of different ingredients inside. This recipe includes eggs, cheese, avocado, bacon and yummy homemade sauce.
The author suggests using low-carb tortillas which is a brilliant idea! I personally prefer such tortillas because they contain way less carbs than traditional ones but you can hardly tell because the taste and texture remain the same. Just make sure that you’ve tried different brands and find the one that you really enjoy!

Avocado & black bean eggs
This comfort food is perfect for a cozy autumn breakfast. You can cook everything in one pan and enjoy a simple warm meal that contains all the necessary nutrients you need to start your day right. Black beans provide you with complex carbs and protein while eggs and avocado give enough healthy fats that are important for keeping your diet balanced.

Peanut butter chia pudding
Chia pudding is my favorite sweet treat because it’s incredibly healthy but at the same time so delicious. It feels like a real dessert!
One of the best things about chia pudding is that you can make it the night before and enjoy this amazing breakfast in the morning without spending any time on cooking. Chia pudding is perfect for meal prep!
This recipe includes creamy peanut butter and flavourful berry jelly. Such a lovely combo! As one serving contains 151 calories only, you can easily eat 2 or 3 portions without any quilt.

Goat’s cheese, pea & bean frittata
Delicious tender frittata can become your new favorite! This recipe is very easy-to-make as you’ll probably find all the ingredients in your fridge. You just need frozen peas and beans (I always keep a similar green veggie mix in my freezer), eggs (another staple food for those who want to lose weight), goat’s cheese or feta, and milk. That’s all!

Low-Carb Tuna Shakshuka
Shakshuka is an amazing comfy meal that is originally low-carb and low-calorie. But this recipe uses tuna to make it even more filling and to increase the amount of protein. I love adding tuna to almost everything! It’s convenient, always delicious and contains around 30g protein per can.

Baked Cheesy Omelet
Another recipe that you can use for meal prep as it’s so easy to bake this omelet, cut it into squares and store in a tight glass container to use for later.
The recipe includes eggs, a little bit of flour, cheese, cottage cheese (which may sound odd, but this actually creates a fluffy tender texture for your omelet), ham and seasonings. You are more than welcome to experiment with adding extra frozen or fresh vegetables, substituting ham for salmon or vegan sausages, trying different cheese and spices.

Hummus, tomato and feta toast
Maybe having toast for breakfast doesn’t sound like a low-carb option. But hey, everything should be in balance, right?! Besides, you can always opt for low-calorie high-protein bread. I buy such bread from Aldi and it tastes so good!
Hummus and feta provide additional protein to your breakfast and make it taste incredible! So give this recipe a try!

For those people who can’t imagine their lives without sweet breakfast, this recipe can be the perfect fit! Enjoy these gorgeous muffins with a cup of coffee in the morning to make yourself ready for the day ahead.
To make this recipe really low-carb and healthy you need blanched almond flour. That’s the only ingredient that may be a little bit tricky to find but it’s so worth it. All other products are widely available: milk, eggs, berries, coconut oil and sweetener of your choice.
