We already mentioned that a high protein breakfast is a way better and healthier alternative to eating just carbs in the morning. Higher amounts of protein consumed in the morning can help in curbing hunger later during the day which can aid the fat loss process. Here are 3 healthy ways you can add around 30 grams of protein to your breakfast.
1. The good old omelette
Cook an omelette from two whole eggs plus three egg whites (23 g of protein). Add about 80 grams of mozzarella (7 g of protein). Add some fresh spinach, onions and tomatoes to the mix. Total protein = 30 g. If you need some additional carbs you can eat a whole grain piece of toast or a couple of them.
2. High Protein strawberry smoothie
Put a scoop of vanilla whey concentrate in a blender (21 g of protein). Add a handful of strawberries, 250 ml of almond milk (1g of protein) and 2 spoons of almond butter (8 g of protein). Alternatively you can use peanut butter instead of almond butter. Blend on high speed to get a smooth mixture. Total protein = 30 g
3. Chia Pudding
Put 2 tablespoons of chia seeds (6 g of protein) in a blender. Add a cup of unsweetened almond milk (1 g of protein). Finally, add a scoop of vanilla whey concentrate (21 g of protein) . Blend all ingredients until smooth, put the mixture in a jar and leave it in the fridge for 3-4 hours. Total protein = 27g
