Whether or not you're an everyday breakfast eater, a balanced morning meal is a great way to kickstart a healthy day, and getting enough protein is an important part of that balance. "Protein is a vital component to a healthy breakfast," says Jessica Jones, M.S., R.D., C.D.E. at Food Heaven Made Easy and co-author of the 28-Day Plant-Powered Health Reboot. "Research suggests that meals balanced with protein can help with satiety." Meaning, a protein-packed breakfast can keep you healthy and full until lunch.
I'll be the first to admit that eggs are awesome—they're inexpensive, versatile, protein-packed, and so, so quick. That said, it's a little boring to eat eggs every single day of the week. If you're sick of just plain eggs, you can add them to oatmeal, use them for easy French toast, or combine them with Greek yogurt and oats (or flour) for amped-up pancakes. If you're avoiding eggs altogether, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, tofu, or chia seeds are some high-protein alternatives that make for great breakfasts. Some of these recipes are great for eating on-the-go, while others are perfect for a relaxed weekend brunch. Many you can make ahead of time, which means your mornings will be easier than ever!
