Keto Bacon Avocado Breakfast cups are perfect for starting your day off with a healthy dose of fat.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. That’s idea has been drilled into our heads for ages, but is it really the most important meal of the day? Are all meals created equal? Well, if you’re on the ketogenic diet, they should be. Created equally in the sense that you spend time planning and considering what you’re going to eat that is. Breakfast means to literally a break in fasting. While you sleep you fast from eating for (hopefully) eight or more hours, so breakfast is the meal that breaks that fast. Does that make it more important? That depends on what you’re eating for breakfast!
Breakfast is a way to kick start your day and jump start fat burning. If you eat meals that are higher in fat first thing in the morning, you are giving your body exactly what it needs to run a healthy brain, and this can lead to making better choices all day. If you’re not getting enough fat you may find your brain feeling “foggy”, and you will most likely end up grumpy. Everything we eat affects our body, so it is paramount that we are always focusing on meeting our fat goals.
It’s easy to overlook fat and focus on carbs, but those two numbers can’t work apart from each other. You can be in ketosis for months and never lose weight because without the proper fat intake your body won’t let go of a pound it will store as much fat as it can because it feels like you’re starving it of the nutrients it needs, which you are.
Let this be a reminder if you’ve made your daily carb count your focus. Fat and protein are just as important as carbs, if not more important. Your body will function at its optimum level when you’ve fueled it with fat.

Always try to choose thick cut bacon. It can be more expensive, but it’s worth it for the extra flavor and fat it brings to your dish.
How amazingly moist do these look? These breakfast cups are delicious. When baking, cut one in half to see if it’s done. The breakfast cups will seem a little wetter than muffins because they are egg based, just make sure they aren’t undercooked. If you need to leave them for 5-10 minutes, that’s fine just watch to make sure the tops don’t burn.
