They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but if your morning plate is filled with bagels and doughnuts? Not so much. High-calorie, high-sugar options like that won’t give you energy for long and leave you hungry before lunch. Fruits and veggies are great for nutrients, but you really need protein to fill you up and keep you full longer. These healthy options are protein-packed and come recommended by dietitians, so you know they’re good for you.
Fried Egg and Guacamole Breakfast Salad - This egg and avocado breakfast has 18 grams of protein to keep you running until lunch, plus you’re getting your leafy greens in early.
Blueberry Power Muffin - Most muffins are really just sugar-loaded cupcakes, but these are packed with 14-grams of protein and lots of fiber to keep you full, plus plenty of tasty blueberries.
High Protein Pomegranate and Clementine Yogurt Bowl - Avoid the sugar bomb of flavored yogurt and start with a plain yogurt and add fresh fruit to enhance the flavor and texture. This mix made with Greek yogurt has 20 grams of protein and fiber-rich fruits so your tummy won’t be rumbling.
Lean Egg White Steak and Feta Frittata - Make this large dish ahead then slice and serve as needed. The egg whites, steak, and feta pack a powerful protein punch to kick off your day and keep you satisfied.
Scrambled Turmeric Tofu with Mushrooms and Greens - You don’t need meat to have a protein-rich breakfast, this savory scramble fills you up with 14 grams of protein and clocks in at just 152 calories.
