Finding the time to eat healthy is one of the biggest challenges. Is there anyone who isn't busy these days? I think I speak for everyone when I say that time is precious and none of us wants to spend hours and hours in the kitchen.

I'm no exception. The last few years have been full of exciting new projects but it has also been the busiest two years of my life. I published three new keto cookbooks and for several months we have been working on some major KetoDiet App improvements — I think you will love them.

On most days I like simple low-carb meals with minimum clean up that can be prepared in one skillet, one tray or one pot.

This is how I make my go-to keto all-day-breakfast skillet. With just a few ingredients, this is the ideal option when you need a quick and nutritious meal low in carbs. All in just 20 minutes!

How To Build the Perfect Breakfast Skillet

In this recipe I used sausage, cauliflower and kale, plus aromatics, spices and healthy fats. You can make easy swaps to fit your keto lifestyle and utilize ingredients you have on hand.

  • Instead of kale, try spinach, collards or beet greens.
  • Instead of cauli-rice, try diced or spiralized zucchini or riced/chopped broccoli.
  • Instead of sausage, add some cooked chicken or chorizo.
  • For an extra protein boost, add eggs fried in ghee or avocado oil.
  • For a boost of healthy fats, add 1-2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.
  • For vegetarian keto, swap the sausage with egg, grilled halloumi cheese, or crumbled feta.
  • For a vegan keto option, swap the sausages with sliced avocado, and the ghee with olive oil or coconut oil.
  • For an extra digestive aid (especially if you suffer from GERD), add some Pink Sauerkraut or Classic Sauerkraut at the end of the cooking process.
  • Feel free to use any fresh or dried herbs and spices.
  • For extra flavor you can add some Sriracha (you can make your own Fermented Sriracha Sauce), keto-friendly ketchup (here's how to make your own sugar-free ketchup) or mustard (here's how to make your own mustard).

It's really easy to modify any meal I post on the KetoDiet blog directly in the KetoDiet App! You can do that in Custom Meals by tapping on the "clone" icon. You can then remove, add or adjust any ingredients.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Thank you so much! Your blog has been my number one resource ever since I started following keto. I just LOVE this recipe and all the options for topping. I'm thinking of swapping some of the cauliflower with bell peppers and adding some chopped tomatoes and eggs. Mmmm shakshuka!!

That's fantastic I can't wait for the 50 new recipes! Woot! Woot! You rock Martina!
