These are a few of my easy to make, delicious to eat, higher protein breakfast combos:
Breakfast Burrito: Black beans + scrambled egg (or scrambled tofu), wrapped up in a whole grain tortilla with diced tomatoes, leafy greens and spicy salsa.
Morning Power Bowl: a scoop of cottage cheese topped with a hard-cooked egg, grape tomato halves, avocado, a big squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of hemp hearts.
Peanut Butter Smoothie: Plain Greek yogurt, natural peanut butter, kefir and a frozen banana whirled together make a frosty breakfast to enjoy on the drive to work.
When it comes to getting enough protein at breakfast on busy mornings, a little preparation helps you fuel up with ease. I’ll make a couple of servings of protein-packed overnight oats and keep them in the fridge. That can mean I’ve got a breakfast ready to go when my traffic app seems to suggest I don’t have any time at all.
