Despite breakfast being, hands down, the best meal of the day, it can be hard to come up with different, delicious breakfasts all week long -- let alone low-carb ones.

The trick to having tasty homemade breakfasts every morning? A little pre-planning. Depending on the recipe, this means having the ingredients chopped and stored in containers, or making a batch of the breakfast and portioning it out.

To get you started, here are seven low-carb breakfast recipes. They're colourful, filling, meal prep-friendly and packed with flavour (no cardboard-like food here, promise).

1. Pesto cauliflower rice breakfast bowls

From A Saucy Kitchen.

The key to this breakfast bowl is the low-carb, high-fibre cauliflower 'rice', which is tossed with flavoursome pesto. Top your bowl with a fried egg, avocado and baby spinach, and you're done.

Here's the recipe.

2. One-skillet spicy shakshuka with feta

From Jessica in the Kitchen.

This shakshuka starts with a rich, spicy tomato sauce, which is filled with caramelised onions, feta and red capsicum. Then it's time to poach the eggs in the flavour-packed sauce and serve. Prep a batch and re-heat for breakfast all week.
