Hi, Friends! The last week or so I’ve had several people ask me about breakfast. Breakfast is often the last thing you think about when it comes to meal prep which is unfortunate because it leaves you scrambling the most important meal of the day. I ended up emailing them each five breakfast ideas, but then I thought to myself, if they have these questions then other people probably do it.Remember breakfast IS the MOST IMPORTANT meal of the day, but having it isn’t as important as having the right food. If you eat sugar and caffeine for breakfast, you will set yourself up for energy crashes and sugar cravings all day. If you focus on high protein and healthy fat-rich meals, you’ll set yourself up for steady energy and steady hunger levels throughout the day.
So, I thought I’d round up my top SUPER easy breakfast recommendations. Things you can have ready and run out the door with. (See the full-length tutorial on Youtube!)
5 Ingredient Healthy Egg Muffins
You literally mix these up and bake for 20 minutes; then you have little quiches ready to eat every day for breakfast. Protein comes from the eggs; healthy fat comes from the egg and high-quality cheese. Plus you get a dose of nutrients in the form of broccoli. Pair with a piece of fruit (if you need a carb)!
PS you can easily swap out the veggie in this recipe, you could use shredded zucchini, cauliflower, or bell peppers instead!
One of my favorite breakfast options of all time are these turkey bacon ranch bowls. I eat them for all meals including breakfast. Here is the deal, you don’t want to swap regular bacon in this meal though because there isn’t enough protein in bacon (it’s mostly fat.) Since this is a one-shot sheet pan meal, it’s easy to prep! If you don’t like turkey bacon, you could sub breakfast chicken sausage or pork sausage (pre-made) just to warm up and eat with your meals.
You’ve probably heard of overnight night oats, and maybe you’ve even tried a recipe. Here is what I will tell you if you haven’t tried them yet, go for it! If you have tried them and maybe you didn’t like them, try a different recipe. You may prefer them with a different base. Watch the video and check out four ways to make high protein overnight oats!
Some of you are like, “chia what?” You’ve already started humming the chia pet theme song.
Some of you are like, oh ya, yes chia pudding I forgot about that!
The rest of you are scrolling past because you don’t like anything with tapioca pudding or caviar like consistency.
Chia seeds add a TON of fiber and healthy fat to your breakfast, which sets you up for better blood sugar control throughout the day. Pair that with the protein found in Greek yogurt and you’re in business with a breakfast that is sure to keep you super full and taste like dessert! Try this chocolate coconut high protein chia pudding!
