A solid Whole30 breakfast is all about getting back to the basics and filling yourself with a balanced, wholesome meal before your day kicks into high gear. While the program does not allow yogurt or cereal and milk, breakfast favorites like eggs, along with fruits and vegetables, are easy foods to lean on.

Here are 21 of our favorite breakfast recipes that fit in the 30 days of Whole30.

Hearty Eggs

It’s hard to go wrong with eggs for breakfast — they’re a classic for good reason. How you enjoy them is up to you, whether they’re simply scrambled, poached, or made ahead in a veggie-filled frittata.

Meat and Potatoes

If you’re craving something extra hearty, you can’t go wrong with making meat and potatoes the center of your morning plate.

Non-Traditional Breakfasts

Since Whole30 cuts a handful of ingredients that qualify as classic breakfast foods (like yogurt and oatmeal), reaching beyond them to things like baked sweet potatoes filled with veggies, hearty salads, and comforting soups helps keep things interesting.

A Note on Smoothies

While not a favorite of the plan, as the founders believe that liquid sugar (even from fruit) can set you up for cravings and energy slumps throughout the day, smoothies are technically compliant and can make good breakfasts if you fill them with good things that keep your energy steady, like leafy greens or fiber and protein-rich nuts and chia seeds.
