Cottage cheese for breakfast

What if you want something else than eggs for breakfast? Before LCHF I had bread, oatmeal or muesli for breakfast, never eggs. It's easy to get bored with eggs so I will try to keep my egg intake rather low... Good breakfasts can be based on cottage cheese, avocado or high fat yogurt (low fat yogurt contains lots of carbs), sausage or ham with cheese.

Today I had an egg-free breakfast: 50 g salami, 80 g cottage cheese, 1 tbsp creme fraiche, 2 tbsp of desiccated coconut, 1 tbsp of psyllium seeds. Kcal: 390 and 3 g carbs. Quite a lot of kcal for breakfast but I will have a late lunch so I need more energy in the morning.

I mixed the coconut and psyllium seeds with the cheese and added some creme fraiche to raise the fat content. It is kind of like muesli. Other things to add are sunflower seeds, flaked almond, line seeds or low carb nuts like Brazil nuts. Or - now that summer is approaching - some fresh berries. Use your imagination! All of this food contains carbs and most are high in energy so eat in moderation.
