Since my decision to give Whole30 a trial, I have been perplexed by the lack of available breakfast options. But, that was before I checked Pinterest. Guess what? There are plenty of Whole 30 breakfast options if you enter the correct search criteria.
Up to now my breakfast has consisted of a bowl of very healthy granola, supplemented with a little fruit.
My fruit of choice is the simple banana. I speak as if the banana were a commonplace fruit, which couldn’t be further from the truth.
When you think about the banane an which part of the world it come from, you will realise this is a remarkable, tropical fruit that is anything but commonplace.
Whole 30 Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I don’t intend to forfeit this important nutritional pit-stop, just because I am trying Whole30.
This proved to me, that what we eat has a huge part to play in our health, especially when an autoimmune disease is present.
Apple Nut Whole 30 Breakfast Bowl
I have become accustomed to a healthy bowl of granola every morning. This crunchy bowl of oat goodness would be laced with soy milk.
However, the Whole 30 plan doesn’t allow soybeans and I wasn’t sure about soy milk. So, I have switched to almond milk which is delightfully agreeable.
One of the most difficult problems you will face when beginning a course of Whole30 is finding suitable alternative foods.
Breakfast recipes you want to eat
I didn’t anticipate having problems starting a Whole 30 breakfast until I realised that I couldn’t eat oats. This scuppered my usual bowl of granola.
This is an amazing breakfast selection and I immediately picked out 2 dishes that will definitely feature on my breakfast menu.
Whole30 Breakfasts to rock your morning
I am no spring chicken so anything that rocks any time of the day will be very welcome.
Some of the recipes featured in the linked posts suggest using a spiralizer, which is fine if you already have such a kitchen tool.
Thankfully, \i know that my local Aldi store sells spiralized zucchini. So, I can start using these recipes without investing in any new kitchen gadgets.
Keto + Whole30 Eggs Benedict
The very name: Eggs Benedict, conjures up mental images of creamy, succulent eggs on toast. We cannot use toast as this is not Whole30 compliant.
Natalie calls this recipe “California Eggs Benedict”. Now, I am not aware that chickens from California are any different to chickens found elsewhere in the World.
Berries & Cream Breakfast Crisp
My first thought about this berries & cream breakfast crisp recipe was that no recipe with cream could be Whole30 or Paleo compliant.
I should not have been so hasty in condemning this recipe. Crystal uses coconut cream in her delicious berry breakfast.
Whole 30 potato crust quiche
This recipe suggests more of an evening meal rather than a breakfast dish. But, that’s only because I am stuck in my ways. I feel this pin should have been in my Sweet Potato Waffle Recipes post.
I have never been a great fan of quiche but, that is probably because I have never had a truly special quiche. However, a potato crust quiche doe sound very tempting.
Beef Enchilada Breakfast Bake
I adore anything Spanish or Mexican. And this Beef Enchilada Breakfast Bake could be something worth getting out of bed for.
This dish is so simple and is easily prepped the evening before. Served with avocado slices as shown in the picture, it will be an absolutely delicious breakfast.

I offer no justification for including the above quote, other than it is very thought-provoking if you allow it to be. And it is very apt for this post.
