What can I eat for a whole30 breakfast?

The whole30 diet is a 30-day elimination diet centered around whole foods. That means you have to forego sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, and dairy. The idea is that by living without ultra-processed ingredients, you’ll lose weight, increase your energy levels, and have a better relationship with food. 

So, in place of those processed ingredients, you’re encouraged to eat whole fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, fish, eggs, and healthy fats like avocados and nuts. 

Breakfast staples

Eggs are the perfect whole30-friendly breakfast choice. They’re high in antioxidants, vitamin A, and protein. Plus, they take well to seasonings and complement whatever you serve them with. 

  • Egg wraps– Made with just eggs, a little water, and seasonings of your choice, these soft and versatile egg wraps work great in place of bread in sandwiches or as the ultimate breakfast wrap. 
  • Over easy eggs– Nothing’s more satisfying than a gooey egg yolk, and this recipe explains how to guarantee the perfect over easy egg every time. If you prefer your eggs over medium or over hard, we have you covered. 
  • Sous vide egg bites– Skip the gruyere, and you’ll still get perfectly fluffy, flavorful egg bites. Way better (and cheaper) than Starbucks!
  • Air fryer turkey bacon– I don’t think I could love a diet that makes you stop eating bacon. Luckily, this crispy, savory turkey bacon is whole30-approved. 
  • Air fryer smashed potatoes– On days when your potato craving is unmatched, whip up these crispy, crunchy smashed potatoes. Oven instructions included.

Here are some of our favorite whole30-approved breakfast recipes designed to sneak in those extra veggies. 

  • Sweet potato tots– Made with sweet potato and zucchini, you’d never be able to guess these sweet and savory baked tater tots are whole30-friendly.
  • Zucchini fritters– Make use of those extra zucchini and effortlessly turn them into crispy fritters. Perfect on the side with eggs or in a breakfast egg wrap.
  • Keto avocado toast– Who doesn’t love avocado toast? Luckily, you can enjoy this trending breakfast with a few simple swaps and homemade keto bread. Bonus points if you top it with a poached egg. 
  • Grilled sweet potatoes– Crispy on the outside and buttery on the inside, these grilled sweet potatoes make the perfect side dish. Stovetop instructions included!

Whole30 sweet treats for breakfast

  • Cranberry energy bites– Sometimes, I don’t have time for a sit-down breakfast. That’s where these energy bites come in. They’re easy to make ahead, taste great, and you can eat them on the go.
  • Larabars– If you love Larabars, you’ll love this easy copycat recipe. Aside from the base recipe, the cherry pie, peanut butter cookie, and cashew cookie flavors are all whole30-approved. 
  • Keto chia pudding– Skip the sweetener in place of mashed bananas or chopped dates, and you have delicious, whole30-approved chia pudding. Make it the night before for an even more convenient recipe.

Smoothies and breakfast drinks

  • Almond milk latte– I don’t know if I could survive the whole30 diet if coffee wasn’t allowed. Thankfully, it is, and you can make fun drinks like this almond milk latte. 
  • Whole30 smoothie– Smoothies are a lifesaver when I’m short on time. This whole30-friendly smoothie uses just 4 ingredients and is endlessly customizable. 
  • Almond milk smoothie– Thick, creamy, and decadent, this almond milk smoothie is naturally sweetened and comes together in minutes. 
  • Breakfast smoothie– Made with creamy almond butter, bananas, milk of your choice, and a dash of cinnamon, this delicious smoothie tastes just like a milkshake.
