High Protein Breakfast
When focusing on what your body really needs, you will have to forget about low carb versus low fat arguments. Protein is the crucial nutrient we all need in order to maintain our health, stay fit and energized – more importantly during breakfast. That’s the reason eggs are still one of the most popular source of proteins, vitamin D and choline. Choline is a nutrient that helps in curbing anxiety while boosting memory at the same time. Eggs can however be monotonous if done for too long, here are some ideas for a high protein breakfast to kick start your day:
Prepare the three-minute burrito
This recipe derives proteins from black beans instead of the usual eggs. Just add a half a cup of cooked black beans, sliced and roasted pepper, salsa and chopped cilantro to a whole wheat tortilla. Roll this up and wrap it in plastic then put it in the freezer. In the morning, take of the plastic wrapper and microwave it for only three minutes and there, you have your high protein breakfast.
Low-fat cottage cheese
Cottage cheese is one of the forgotten staples that is currently making a come-back. Paired with berries that are rich in nutrients and a little cinnamon, this can be a great source of high-protein breakfast. The protein will help burn the fat while the berries are known to have polyphenols, which prevent formation of fats as well. With 15 grams of protein to fuel through the day, the low fat cottage cheese maintains your metabolism and satisfies your hunger for hours with only 100 calories per half-cup serving. You can add a small bowl of curds served with avocado toast or oats in order to get some fiber and healthy fats that will ensure you stay strong and focused throughout the morning.
