But figuring out what to eat when you wake up can be a challenge (especially if you’re a toast lover!). With oats, many fruits, and even some yogurt out of the running, the options can feel kind of limited.

Below, you’ll find some of the most delicious, simple, and innovative ways to do breakfast while living keto (the healthy way).
