Whole30 Breakfast Ideas (With and Without Eggs)

You’re all about Whole30, but you need breakfast inspiration! We understand. Let us break down Whole30 brekky for you:

  • Eggs. The standard go-to breakfast for most Whole30-ers. That is, until you’re egged out.
  • Grain-free Oatmeal. You can find grain-free oatmeal at some higher-end grocery stores and online (our favorite is Wildway Vegan Granola). It’s basically a bunch of chopped up nuts you can pour almond milk over for a makeshift cereal.
  • Smoothies. Some folks decide to go the smoothy route for breakfast when they’ve had it with eggs, but we don’t really recommend this, as smoothies just won’t fill you up as well as other breakfast options.

PRO TIP: Sick of standard eggs for breakfast? There are tons of ways to make eggs a more exciting start to your day. We detail tons of fun egg recipes below, but a basic way to spice up standard eggs is to simply heat up some leftovers from last night’s dinner and add eggs to that.
