If you are struggling to make a Whole30 breakfast because you cannot use eggs, then consider these ideas.


The Whole30 diet seems to rely heavily on eggs during breakfast because there are many other restrictions. However, if you are allergic to eggs or cannot use them for another reason, you still have breakfast options that are easy to make and will keep you full. Even if you can eat eggs, you may want to try these ideas to increase variety.

New Twist on Toast

Although you cannot have grains such as wheat or barley on the Whole30 diet, you can still enjoy an alternative version of toast. Sweet potato toast is a fun and healthy option that is easy to make for breakfast. You can add a variety of toppings to this type of toast and make it a complete meal.

1. Cut your sweet potatoes lengthwise to create thick slices that will not fall apart.
2. Either use a toaster oven or traditional oven to bake the slices until they are golden brown.
3. Let the sweet potato toast cool and add your toppings.
4. You can use salsa, avocado or other spreads on this toast. You can also add bacon or other meat on top.

Skillet meals are one way to eliminate eggs and still have a nourishing breakfast while you are on the Whole30 diet. The easiest skillet breakfast relies on meat such as ham or sausage mixed with vegetables. Although sweet potatoes, green bell peppers and tomatoes tend to be the most common additions to a skillet meal, you may want to try the following squash idea.

1. Use a tablespoon of coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil or other oil that is allowed on the Whole30 diet in your skillet and heat it.
2. Cut your favorite squash into small pieces and add it to the skillet.
3. Add cut vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, bell peppers or others at the same time.
4. Add your preferred, previously cooked meat such as sliced or cubed ham, bacon, sausage or chicken.
5. Use salt and additional spices like pepper, garlic or basil to taste.
6. Brown all the ingredients for four to five minutes or until ready.

Easy Breakfast Bowl

You cannot have oatmeal or cereal if you are following the Whole30 diet, but many people miss this traditional breakfast food. If you love eating your meal in a bowl, then you may want to try this idea because it is quick and easy. It combines sweet bananas with protein from nuts, so you will not feel hungry later in the day.

1. Cut a banana into small slices and add it to the bottom of the bowl.
2. Add cashews, hazelnuts or another type of nut that is allowed on the Whole30 diet.
3. Add your favorite berries such as strawberries, blueberries or blackberries.
4. Add coconut flakes as the top layer. You can also add cinnamon on top.

You are not limited to using eggs in all of your Whole30 breakfasts. You can try these ideas or experiment with other meals that will satisfy you and help you stay full until lunchtime.
