Studies have found that a high protein breakfast (over 35g) can contribute to weight loss efforts by keeping you full longer and warding off food cravings later in the day.
You know that breakfast is important – you've heard it your whole life. The fact is, though, that by loading up on sugar and fat first thing in the morning most people aren't doing breakfast right.
So, to get you started, here are a few high-protein breakfast recipes.
High Protein Oatmeal
- 2 packets instant oatmeal
- 1 scoop Naked Whey protein powder
- ¼ cup walnuts, almonds, or nuts of choice
- Hot water (as needed)
Place oatmeal and whey in a bowl. Add hot water as directed or until you get the consistency you're looking for. Top with your choice of nuts.
Fast, Easy Yogurt
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup almonds
- ¼ cup blueberries (or other frozen berries)
- 1 scoop Naked protein powder (optional for added protein)
Place yogurt in a bowl and mix with protein, then top with almonds and berries.
Breakfast Bean Burrito
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup black beans
- ¼ cup onions, diced
- Pico de gallo (to taste)
- Corn tortilla
Lightly oil a pan and sauté the onions over medium-high heat until soft and lightly browned. While that's cooking, crack the eggs into a bowl and scramble with a fork.
Add the eggs to the pan with the onions and mix them further as they cook. Add the beans. Once the eggs are cooked and the ingredients are combined, spoon the mixture into the tortilla. Top with the pico de gallo and wrap closed.
