20 high protein breakfasts that will keep you full and satisfied until lunch.
I love breakfast. Many of you know by now that I start most mornings with a smoothie, but there are a ton of delicious filling ways to start your day! I enjoy trying new ways to make the classic pancakes, waffles, and eggs, and my kids enjoy helping me eat them. If you’re feeling like you’re in a bit of a rut when it comes to breakfast recipes, I’ve compiled 20 of my favorite high protein breakfasts to help you out.
Why High Protein in the Morning?
Keeps you full. Protein helps you to feel full for longer, so that you can last until your next meal without being hungry again in 10 minutes.
Helps you lose weight. Because it helps to curb your hunger, eating high protein/low calorie meals is a great way to help you lose weight while still feeling satisfied.
Keeps you alert. Full of amino acids, protein helps your brain function at its highest level.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is a high-protein breakfast good for weight loss?
Yes! As I’ve mentioned before, high protein/low-calorie is a great way to lose weight.
How many grams of protein should I aim to have in my breakfast?
If you’re having balanced meals and snacks throughout the day, you should strive to have between 10-13 grams of protein in your breakfast.
Which breakfast foods are high in protein?
Eggs are incredibly high in protein, as is Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and turkey sausage. But adding flaxseed meal, protein powder, or other nutrition additives can up the protein of your meals.
