Low-carb diets can induce ketosis and to stay in ketosis we need to decrease consumption of foods which contain carbs, like one of our favorite breakfasts for example, an oatmeal.
Although when we are on low carb diet, among many meals we say goodbye to oatmeal, there are low-carb breakfast meal that doesn’t use eggs, for example something called n’oatmeal which is ideal replacement and taste good as well.
So, in the mornings, when a bowl of oatmeal is what your body craves for, prepare a portion of this low carb noatmeal (no oatmeal). Recipe in this article is based on chia seeds which are very low in carbs and on other hand, are very healthy and rich in healthy fats. Flax seed can also be used but chia is better, but for that, in some other article.
