5 Keto Breakfast Ideas that AREN'T Bacon & Eggs - Thomas DeLauer

1) Bulletproof Coffee + Pea Protein + Collagen

Fat Coffee

Grass-Fed Butter/Ghee:

Ghee contains butyric acid, a short-chain fatty acid - butyric acid is an essential nutrient for the digestive system because it helps maintain healthy cells throughout the GI tract, and provides energy to the cells in your large intestine

Ghee is also a rich source of the essential fat soluble vitamins: A, D, E, and K

Sustained Energy:

Blending the fat into the coffee is believed to break the fats into micelles, which bind to caffeine molecules; from there, they’re all broken down together at the pace of the slowest part of the molecule - in this case, the fats

Pea Protein

Pea protein is derived from ground yellow split peas and often from a mechanical rather than the chemical separation of soy and whey proteins - this allows the pea protein to also retain soluble fiber, which is known to provide many benefits to both cardiovascular and gastrointestinal health

Polyphenolics, in coloured seed coat types in particular, which may have antioxidant and anticarcinogenic activity, saponins which may exhibit hypocholesterolemic and anticarcinogenic activity, and galactose oligosaccharides (byproduct of pea protein production) which may exert beneficial prebiotic effects in the large intestine*


Collagen stimulates human cartilage-producing cells (chondrocytes), which has the potential to result in more cartilage tissue

Glycine is the primary amino acid in collagen, making up about 33% - glycine is that it is a precursor to glutathione - Glutathione is responsible for effective and reliable detoxification through the liver detox pathways

2) 1-2 Whole Eggs + 2-3 Additional Yolks


Selenium is also essential to the proper functioning of glutathione peroxidase - glutathione is 100% dependent on having a selenium atom at its core for proper function

In fact, selenium is what gives the enzyme its potency in preventing and cleaning up after destructive oxygen free radicals - as such, decreased selenium in the blood leads to decreased glutathione peroxidase activity


Choline is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine - specifically, choline is transported into the cell by a transporter protein in the membrane of the presynaptic neuron where it combines with acetyl CoA to synthesize the neurotransmitter acetylcholine

Acetylcholine prompts synaptogenesis, the healthy growth of synapses throughout the brain, which enhances memory encoding, and facilitates the action of all other neurotransmitters as they communicate messages


Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin D, vitamin K, vitamin B6 & B12

3) Ground Chicken or Breakfast Sausage with Coconut Oil and Sauteed Spinach + Cream Cheese or Vegan Cream Cheese (make a creamed spinach)

Coconut Oil

Lauric acid to monolaurin


Spinach has a very high content of potassium and magnesium
Also contains COQ10, which plays an important role in strengthening muscles, especially heart muscles which continuously pump blood to all parts of the body - contributes to the reduction of hypertension and relaxes blood vessels, while maintaining proper blood flow

4) Riced Cauliflower with Bacon Bits + Diced Chicken

Riced Cauliflower (1 cup contains ~5g of carbs)

Cauliflower contains several anticancer phytochemicals like sulforaphane and plant sterols such as indole-3-carbinol, which appears to function as an anti-estrogen agent

Di-indolyl-methane (DIM), a lipid-soluble compound present abundantly in Brassica group of vegetables, including cauliflower, has found to be effective as an immune modulator, antibacterial and antiviral agent

Also contains manganese, which is required for gluconeogenesis


Phosphorus is a basic building block of your DNA, as well as ATP, the energy molecule that makes muscle movement possible

Specifically, all energy production and storage are dependent on phosphorylated compounds, such as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and creatine phosphate

Nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), which are responsible for the storage and transmission of genetic information, are long chains of phosphate-containing molecules

Additionally, the phosphorus-containing molecule 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) binds to hemoglobin in red blood cells and regulates oxygen delivery to the tissues of the body

Fat Content

The fats in bacon are about 50% monounsaturated, with a large part being oleic acid, and about 40% being saturated fat, accompanied by a decent amount of cholesterol and the remaining fat being 10% polyunsaturated
