People experiencing discomfort must get off the diet and consult a doctor immediately.
People on a keto diet find it extremely hard to chose a breakfast that is high in fat and low in carbohydrates as the traditional breakfasts are mostly rich sources of carbohydrates, and in this article, let us dive in deeper, and look closer at the seven breakfast ideas that you could include as a part of your keto diet plan to burn fat and get in shape.
#1 Pancakes and Sour Cream
Pancakes are a regular breakfast, and the conventional version of the pancakes contain good amounts of carbohydrates, making them unsuitable for a ketogenic diet. However, one could prepare the pancakes using almond flour to negate the effect of carbohydrates. Almonds are a rich source of fat and protein and the batter made using almond flour is ideal for making keto pancakes.
Prepare the pancake batter by mixing almond flour with eggs, oil, salt and baking soda. Pour the batter onto a hot pan along with generous quantities of butter and let it stay on the heat until it gets into shape.
Serve one large almond four pancake along with two tablespoons of sour cream. Additionally, one could dress it up with either raspberries, strawberries or blueberries.
