    Slices of cold meat and cheese
    home made very low carb meusli
    or bought low carb muesli
    slices of home made frittata
    yoghurt and berries
    leftovers from night before
    coffee and cream (this can be a meal in itself, esp bulletproof coffee (recipe on Google)
    sausages cooked the day before and reheated
    or just skip breakfast - that idea that you MUST eat something as the most important meal of the day or else the sky will fall on your head is just a myth

    I make a 6 egg frittata with mushrooms, spring onion bacon or chorizo and a sprinkle of cheese - cut it into 6 lasts 3 days in the fridge - can be eaten cold orvzapped in the microwave- just grab and go - I also have leftovers from dinner or I LOVE above ground cooked cold veggies with a drizzle of olive oil - my favourite are brussel sprouts or green beans

    It does not take long to cook bacon and eggs, or a omelette up.

    Keep going with low carb - before long you’ll be happy without food all morning

    In the meantime
    - chopped avocado or
    - handful of nuts or
    - hard boiled egg or
    - sliced cold chicken
    - pâté

    How about a lunch wrap made the night before? No rule saying you can’t have a sandwich for bfast! Roll up tight, don’t cut, and it’s right in your hand for the whole commute?

    I make a batch of these https://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/keto-egg-muffins and take them to work, if travelling etc. I've even taken them on a walk (when it was cool - I'm not sure how they'd cope with the temps we had in the summer!). You can add all sorts of things to them and they last well in the fridge.

    Just made me think.
    I start the day with coffee, butter and cream which is a meal in itself.

    However there is another thread about home made chocolate truffles which are big, yummy, and 3.9 grams of carbs each. Loads of fat and even a little protein. I am now thinking of them as especially attractive fat bombs.

    The rule breaker's breakfast could therefore be a variant on bullet proof coffee and a couple of home made chocolate truffles. Fat loading, very filling, and not really any bad stuff.

    Who needs breakfast cereals, anyway?
