4 High-Protein Breakfast Options | Take Back Breakfast

There’s a reason why people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But that doesn’t stop many of us from not giving it the attention it deserves.

When you’re running late and there’s no time to prepare a proper breakfast, a banana and a slice of toast will have to do. It’s nutritious, but where’s the protein?

If you want to see gym gains, you need to eat enough protein at every meal of the day. Protein is also the most satiating of the macronutrients. A high-protein breakfast is also going to keep you feeling fuller for longer than a breakfast low in protein.

Don’t just take my word for it. Everyone’s favourite nutritionist, Richie Kirwan, agrees we’re leaving protein on the table when it comes to breakfast. He discussed it in his video explaining the best times to take protein. See for yourself:

This Spring, we’ve made it our mission to remind people of the importance of breakfast. No more rushing out on an empty stomach. It’s time to take back breakfast with some convenient, delicious and nutritious options.

 

Cookies and Cream Shake Brekkie Shake

First up, we’ve got a classic breakfast beverage that will satisfy your sweet tooth and hit your protein goals.

A shake is a simple and satisfying way to get your day off to a strong start. All you need to do is throw in the ingredients, blend it up and be out the door in less than 10mins. 25g of protein and only 260 calories including the cheeky Oreos.

Protein Pancake Mix

Sunday morning isn’t complete without a hearty stack of pancakes with all the toppings. But they’re a weekend treat for a reason. Delicious, but hard work to make.

Protein Pancake Mix fixes that problem. A ready-to-go blend of high-quality protein with fast and slow-digesting carbs, it’s the perfect choice for a filling breakfast.

Simply mix with water, pour into a pan, fry until golden brown, and add your favourite toppings. For me, you can’t go wrong with chocolate spread and sugar-free maple syrup.

Perfect Protein Oats
