Before I started the keto diet, I heard a lot of people say that the diet is hard to sustain because of how expensive it is. After following the diet of a couple of weeks, my grocery bills started to skyrocket.

As I was blankly staring at my enormous grocery bills, I remember thinking “they were right, everyone who told me that keto is expensive was right.

But were they really right? Did the ketogenic diet have to burn a hole in your pocket?

I get that you’re supposed to eat a lot of protein on the keto diet, and protein-rich foods tend to be relatively expensive compared to other food. But the truth is that it doesn’t have to be.  

What you may not have known is that people spend way more money on store-bought keto snacks than natural proteins. The most obvious solution to this problem is to stop snacking altogether.

But in reality, when you are unable to keep hunger at bay, putting a hard stop to your snacking habits is easier said than done. However, there is a better way to stop snacking regularly, one that is more effective.

All you have to do is start your day with a protein-rich, high-fat meal, as it will make you feel satiated. They weren’t kidding when they said breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

On a keto diet, a good breakfast will help you go longer between meals and keep hunger at bay.

Without further delay, here are some of my favorite keto breakfast recipes to help you stick to your diet, even if you are on a budget.

1. Bacon and Eggs

What better way to start your day than with a hearty plate of bacon and eggs. This recipe is an improved version of the all-time best keto breakfasts. Step up your bacon and eggs game with this mouth-watering version and enjoy as many eggs as you need to feel satiated.
