Whole30 & Keto Chorizo Omelette

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know I was intermittent fasting for over a year and kept my eating window around 12pm-8pm. I loved it so much. It helped so much with my IBS issues, kept my blood sugar stable, and I just loved the amount of energy I had throughout the day from it.

However, I stopped fasting once I found out that I was pregnant. I needed more nutrition in my body, so I started eating within the first hour of waking up. The good news is that I now have an extra meal to get creative in the kitchen and I’ve been loving eating plenty of eggs (my favorite!) in all forms.

Whole30 & Keto Chorizo Omelette Recipe

One of the recent breakfast items that I’ve been loving is this Whole30 and keto chorizo omelette. Not only is it really easy and quick to make, you can’t beat the flavors of spicy chorizo with the creamy eggs, with bites of crunchy bell peppers in between!

Keeping It Whole30

To keep this keto chorizo omelette Whole30, you just need to read the ingredients for the chorizo before purchasing. There are so many chorizo on the market with sugar and preservatives in it. Make sure there are no sugar, nitrates, or shady ingredients in it!

Customize With Toppings

While this Whole30 & Keto Chorizo Omelette tastes so addicting and amazing on its own, I do like it better when I give it a little extra love with some yummy toppings! Here are some of my favorites:

  • salsa
  • sour cream (skip if on the Whole30)
  • avocado slices
  • hot sauce
  • cilantro or other fresh herbs
  • cheese, if you aren’t sensitive to dairy (this is probably better inside the omelette before you close it up!)
  • bacon bits

Add them all, or just your favorite ones. Hope you enjoy this quick and easy dish to start your day!

    Such a fantastic breakfast idea! I love chorizo – reminds my of my grandma and grandpa from Spain – we had it every time we visited them!
