Keeping up with fitness and clean, healthy eating can be a challenge. These low-carb, high protein breakfast ideas are perfect. Striving to limit carbs, calories, and boredom with limited options can cause people to get tired of the same old foods and lead them back to unhealthy habits. It is important to incorporate variety and change in our diets to ensure we don’t become stagnant. Our bodies may prefer healthy eating, but they also crave variety and flavor. Replacing ingredients with healthier options is an easy, simple way to do this. These healthy low carb breakfast recipes are easy to prepare, especially on busy mornings, plus they are loaded with protein.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. The type of breakfast you consume will have a significant impact on your activities throughout the day. To function at your best, your breakfast should be healthy and rich in protein.
Healthy breakfast choices do a lot to keep the cravings for carbs and extra calories at bay. Here are some easy healthy breakfast choices:

2. Skillet-Baked Eggs With Spinach and Yogurt
Skillet-baked eggs with spinach and yogurt is an excellent, easy-to-make breakfast that is full of nutrients to kick-start your day. Baking is a fantastic way to cook meals, because you do not introduce any additional oils or fats. Pre-heat the oven to 300 °F. Combine yogurt, garlic and a pinch of salt in a bowl and set aside. Melt a little coconut oil in a skillet over low heat. Add spinach, leek, scallion, lemon juice, and salt, and sauté occasionally stirring. Remove skillet from the heat and crack several eggs into the veggie mixture, keeping yolks intact as much as possible. Bake for 10-15 minutes and top with yogurt mixture before serving.
