Reboot Your Breakfast With Protein
Updated: Nov 5
Carb-driven breakfasts, day in and day out?
Enough of the madness! Instead of focusing on getting something into your belly, look to protein and healthy fats. It's easy to load up on carbohydrates like bagels, croissants, and cereals for breakfast but protein is a key factor in satiety and keeping your blood sugar stable for longer periods of time.
Stable blood sugar levels contribute to stable mood as well.
Here are some top sources of protein that sound appealing in the morning:
7 oz plain Greek yogurt 20 grams protein
½ cup cottage cheese, low-fat 14 grams protein
2 oz turkey sausage 14 grams protein
2 large eggs 13 grams protein
3 Tbsp hemp seeds 10 grams protein
1 cup quinoa 8 grams protein
½ cup black beans 8 grams protein
2 tablespoons peanut butter 8 grams protein
1 oz smoked salmon 5 grams protein
½ cup oats 5 grams protein
1 scoop of whey protein isolate (in a smoothie or oatmeal) 23 grams protein
