High Protein Breakfast Ideas


Do you aim for 30g of protein with breakfast? If not, today is a great day to start! Why do you want a high-protein breakfast? Proteins are the building blocks of life because every cell in our body requires them. It's used to build, repair, strengthen, and maintain our bodies. There are 20 amino acids that make up protein, and our bodies can make 11 of them, requiring that the other 9 come from a food source, however, not all protein sources contain all the necessary amino acids needed to form a complete protein.


COMPLETE PROTEIN FOOD SOURCES:

  • Milk (also yogurt, cheese, cottage cheese, and whey/casein protein powder)

  • Poultry

  • Fish

  • Beef

  • Eggs

  • Quinoa

  • Buckwheat

  • Tofu & Edamame


Starting your morning off with a high-protein meal will not only jumpstart your metabolism but also set the tone for the rest of your day by giving you tons of energy and satiety for hours to come. Keep the protein trend going throughout the rest of the day with your meals and watch just how your body starts to change over time (more energy, less fat, better recovery, feeling fuller longer!)


HERE ARE SOME GREAT HIGH-PROTEIN BREAKFASTS TO GET YOU STARTED:


  1. Egg White Omelet with Veggies and Plain Greek Yogurt

  2. Cottage Cheese & Fruit Bowl

  3. Protein Smoothie (check out our blog for recipes!)

  4. Protein Pancakes + Egg Whites or All-Natural Chicken or Turkey Sausage
