3 Protein Packed Breakfasts To Kickstart Your Day

To get the full fat-burning benefits of a high-protein breakfast, you should always aim for at least 20 grams of protein. If you hit the range of 30–39 grams, that’s even better for slimming your waistline.

A 7-oz. serving of Greek yogurt has you covered all the way (20 grams). You can also pair two large eggs (13 grams) with 1 oz of your favorite cheese (about 6 grams) and a slice of whole-wheat bread (3 grams). Here are a few of my preferred high-protein breakfasts:

1. The Brilliant: Smoked Salmon on Whole-Grain Toast

When you’re in a massive hurry, nothing beats the combination of speed and flavor of whole-grain toast with smoked salmon. Even better, there are endless ways to customize it depending on your mood. To get your SoCal vibe on, add a few slices of smashed avocado.

Salmon is packed with Omega-3 fatty acids, which are perfect for keeping you alert, happy and energized during the day. They take amazing care of your brain and heart while helping you burn calories.

Pop a slice or two of whole-grain bread into the toaster, then layer on delicious cream cheese or cottage cheese. Top each slice with 1 oz of salmon and your favorite microgreens. Personally, I love alfalfa sprouts, chopped chives and a sprinkle of lemon.

2. The Exotic: Turkish Fried Eggs

Eggs are one of the best sources of protein for breakfast, so you’re probably going to be including them at the breakfast table often. How can you give them a spectacular twist that gets you excited every morning? Try transforming fried eggs or omelets with exotic inspirations.

For Turkish eggs, start by sauteing garlic, spinach, red onions and chopped chili peppers in olive oil. As soon as the onions start to caramelize, pop in two or three eggs and cook to your liking. Serve this colorful combination and top with a generous portion of Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of salt and lemon juice.

3. The Fun: Quinoa With Almonds and Bananas

This one’s for all you moms out there. It’s super easy to make and extremely popular with kids. That means no fighting and no drama in the morning, which is honestly a blessing when there’s not much time before the school bus arrives.

Quinoa is a nutritious millennial grain that’s a breeze to cook. It’s like eating a bunch of jelly-filled pearls, so little kids have a blast. The chopped bananas and almonds add a nice touch of sweetness and crunch to the mix, making this breakfast favorite irresistible for small taste buds. Finish it off with some 1% milk or soy milk for nutritious and delicious creaminess.

  7. All these sound GREAT and I hope to try everyone of them but first I think I’ll be trying the smoked salmon but instead of just plain wheat toast I’ll be using Ezekial bread. I’ve been eating it lately and it’s working out great. I love meat so this will be a healthy meat to put on my toast.

    Thank you for sharing and I’ll be looking for more suggestions.
