Quick and low carb breakfast solutions.

Are your mornings a rush? Breakfast doesn’t have to take a backseat, especially if you have a stash of grab-and-go low carb delights at your fingertips. Plan and prep ahead, and you can start your day full and fueled.

Quick, Delicious Energizing Options for Busy Mornings

Whether you’re hungry for eggs, oats or a delicious low carb alternative to a breakfast pastry, we have fiber- and protein-rich options.  

Atkins Blueberry Soft-Baked Energy Bar

If you’re short on time but craving a sweet treat minus a ton of carbs and sugar you might find in a breakfast pastry or donut, you can savor this soft-baked energy bar with your coffee or tea (or during your morning commute). It has more fiber than a bowl of oatmeal, four grams of Net Carbs, 15 grams of protein and one gram of sugar. Take your pick from blueberry or vanilla macadamia nut.

Low Carb and Keto Egg Bites

From the flavors of the Mediterranean to broccolini and bacon or spinach and goat cheese, egg bites can be a fast and delicious breakfast. You can customize your egg bites recipe with your choice of veggies, protein, cheese, spices, and herbs. Eat your egg bites while warm or refrigerate them for up to five days and warm them in the microwave when ready.

Overnight Oats

Add chia seeds or hemp hearts to your overnight oats for a low carb, fiber-rich option, while protein powder or Atkins Shakes give your overnight oats a flavorful protein boost. Simply prepare the night before and refrigerate for at least four hours.
