Whether you're doing the school run, dashing for a meeting, or just plain running out of time, it's great to be able to have a grab-and-go breakfast. Because if you don't, the chances increase of you having to settle for a high carb option instead, or being so hungry by lunchtime you are desperate for stodgy carbs.

For me, an “on the go” breakfast is something portable, relatively mess-free, and doesn't need cutlery. I've split things up into three main sections – items that you can buy which is perfect for busy weeks. Next are breakfast recipes to make in advance, then either reheat (if necessary) or enjoy cold. These recipes obviously require a little more planning, but then, that's often the way when you follow a low carb diet! And finally, a quick section on what to order at the drive-thru!

Low Carb Breakfast At The Drive-Thru

Sometimes fast food is the only option, so here are some ideas of what to order. 

  • McDonald's: Any of the biscuits, griddles, and muffins are OK – as long as you cancel the bun! An English muffin from McDonald's contains 27g carbs and a McGriddle is 40g! Shown below: Sausage & Egg McMuffin (no muffin), Bacon, Egg & Cheese McGriddle (no griddle, extra bacon)
