If you’re a breakfast person you know how important it is to start the day with the energy you need to be productive and think clearly. But finding the time to actually make a meal and sit down to eat it can be tricky. That’s why having a week’s worth of grab-and-go breakfasts on hand can be so valuable.

And while there are plenty of easy options out there — granola bars, muffins, yogurt cups, bananas — many of them are full of carbs. If you’re trying to reduce your carbs for whatever reason, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice a portable breakfast. That’s why we’ve rounded up our tastiest low-carb options which are also super hearty, so your stomach won’t be growling mid-morning.
