Protein Power – Breakfasts
Breakfast is indeed the most important meal of the day. Not only does it get your motor revving for the day’s activities, but it also helps your body to recover from the previous night’s sleep. For folks who are engaged in a regular exercise regimen, this is especially true.
When you go to sleep at night your body utilizes its stores of proteins and other resources to repair your muscles, tendons, and ligaments that were used for that day’s activities. Therefore, it’s crucial that you re-supply its backup stores of nutrients, especially protein.
We’d like to share some healthy, high protein breakfast options that will tip the scales in your favor.
Today’s busy world places an emphasis on quick and convenient breakfast options that you can grab on the go. In this regard, you can turn your average breakfast wrap into a high protein sandwich that can keep your tummy full throughout the entire morning.
Some good options are chicken or smoked salmon with lettuce, tomatoes, and sliced carrots; turkey or ham with eggs and cream cheese; or just load the entire wrap up with scrambled eggs along with cubed potatoes and tomatoes.
The great thing about breakfast wraps is that you can prepare them the night before and quickly heat them for breakfast.
High Protein Toast
One of the types of foods that is quickly gaining popularity is high protein loaves of bread. You can find many options for high protein loaves of bread at your local supermarket if you look carefully.
These dense, grainy loaves of bread are perfect for slicing and toasting, and then adding your favorite spreads. We recommend peanut butter and banana slices, or feta cheese with tomato or cucumbers (or both!), for a high protein breakfast that will sustain you throughout the morning.
There’s typically a massive 18 to 24 grams of protein per 2 slices of the higher protein loaves.
Eggs on Toast
As far as superfoods go, it’s tough to surpass eggs. There’s a whopping 16 grams of high-quality protein per serving of 2 eggs. Eggs also contain 11 other essential vitamins and minerals.
Whether you prefer your eggs hard-boiled with a touch of salt and pepper, poached, or scrambled, eggs are great for your health and will keep your stomach full until lunchtime.
Try adding some fresh guacamole for additional flavor and nutrients.
Breakfast smoothies are yet another great grab-and-go option that can be prepared in advance, and they’re relatively easy to prepare. Simply pair Greek yogurt with some low-fat or 2% milk (or high protein milk) with some peanut butter and rolled oats, and you can enjoy 12 to 20 grams of protein per smoothie, depending on their size.
Or you can try mixing water or milk with your favorite protein powder (and mix in some peanut butter and rolled oats) for a belly-filling breakfast smoothie that weighs anywhere from 25 to 50 grams of protein, depending on the protein powder used.
