Sticking to any eating plan has its obstacles—and that goes double for one as strict at Whole30. (Seriously, no quinoa?) The fear of veering off course can often lead to eating the same thing over and over (and over) again. Not only is that going to make it less likely for you to stick with it, but your body needs variety to thrive.

Baby step number one: Give your AM meal a makeover. You don’t have to eat scrambled eggs every day just to stick with it. Instead of focusing on what you can’t eat when planning your Whole30 breakfasts, think about all of the delicious and filling ingredients like eggs, fruit, and veggies that you can eat. You can still have pancakes, muffins, and breakfast cake as long as you’re armed with the right recipes. Rounded up here are eight creative and fun ones to get you started.
