Savory breakfasts keep sweet cravings under control all day long

This protein heavy savory meal is good any time of day, not just for breakfast. I prefer savory breakfasts and this certainly fits the bill. Do you love a savory breakfast too? I find if I start the day with something sweet I crave more sweet tasting things all day long.

Starting the day off with a savory breakfast can be a game-changer when it comes to controlling sweet cravings. By opting for savory food in the morning, you set yourself up for success in managing your desire for sweets throughout the day.

When we consume sweet foods early in the morning, it can trigger a cycle of cravings that lasts all day. The initial rush of sugar can lead to a spike in blood sugar levels, followed by a crash, leaving us craving more sugar to regain that energy boost. This rollercoaster effect can make it difficult to resist sweet treats later on.

Having a keto or carnivore lifestyle has likely taught you this already!

On the other hand, a savory breakfast provides a more balanced start to the day. Foods like eggs, vegetables and proteins offer a combination of protein, fiber, and healthy fats that help to stabilize blood sugar levels and keep you feeling satisfied for longer. This can help to curb those mid-morning sugar cravings and prevent the need for constant snacking on sugary foods.

Whether you're following a carnivore or keto diet, this high protein porridge is a delicious and convenient way to start your day. With its rich and creamy texture, it's hard to believe that it's also low in carbs and high in protein. Plus, you can customize it to suit your taste preferences by adding your favorite toppings such as nuts, seeds, or berries as your macros allow.
