Getting enough protein is very important if you’d like to make the most out of the investment you are putting in at the gym each week. For most female trainees, 100 grams is the minimum amount of protein you should ingest daily. By starting your day with 20-30 grams, you can be well on your way to your daily goal!
Today we are sharing a few of our favorite high protein breakfasts!
Oatmeal with protein powder | Cook your oatmeal fully, then add a ½-1 scoop of protein powder and some milk (of your choice) until the consistency is to your preference. You may want to reheat the oatmeal for 30-60 seconds to reach your desired temperature. Try adding berries for a boost of fiber and vitamin C!
Greek Yogurt | Greek yogurt is our preferred yogurt at Fitbliss because it has significantly higher protein content than regular yogurt. There are many brands available at the grocery store. Some of our favorites are Chobani and Oikos! Pick one with 12-15g of protein per serving. Adding berries is a great option here too!
Egg Sandwich | There are 101 ways to make a high protein breakfast sandwich based on your preferences and dietary needs, but a go-to at Fitbliss is 1-2 whole eggs, 1-2 servings of egg whites and a slice of thin-sliced cheese on whole-grain toast or English muffin spread lightly with olive oil mayo and butter. You can add bacon, turkey sausage, tomato or avocado to add some extra flavor.
Coach Lynndsey’s Egg Muffins | These are an awesome high protein breakfast option if you’re into meal prep! You can make them ahead of time and just warm them up in the morning on your way out the door. Here’s the recipe.
Protein Shake | Protein shakes are another meal that you can completely tailor to your preferences and macros! In a time crunch or saving your macros for later in the day? Use 1-1 ½ cups of cashew milk and 1 scoop of your favorite protein powder for a quick, creamy, protein-packed breakfast! Want to get even more creative with it? One of our Fitbliss favorites is to add ½ banana, 1-2 tbsp. of peanut butter, a scoop of protein powder, and 1 – 1 ½ cups of liquid (milk, water, cashew, or almond milk) to a blender and mix with ice!
If breakfast isn’t your thing, that’s okay! Just be sure to spread out your protein throughout the day so that you can be sure to hit your macronutrient goals!
