5 High-Protein Breakfast Ideas for Busy Mornings

| 2/21/2019 12:17:00 PM

There's a reason breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day. Breakfast is what gets you out of the bed in the morning. People often disregard this crucial meal because they're in a rush to get to work or school. Getting a healthy dose of all the most important nutrients is an important thing when you're trying to get ready for the rest of the day. You can't function on an empty stomach. This means you're going to need a lot of protein with your meal. The good news is that there is no shortage of delicious protein-filled recipes for that early morning rush.

1. Go Heavy on the Eggs

Bacon and eggs have long been staples of the ideal breakfast. Not only can they cure a hangover, but they also provide you with lots of protein. Unfortunately, bacon has its own set of unhealthy disadvantages that you might want to avoid. Luckily, eggs are still king when it comes to breakfast foods

Eggs really never go out of style. There are thousands of recipes out there that make this simple ingredient interesting and tasty. Egg-in-the-hole grilled cheese is a phenomenal choice for breakfast food. Make a hole in a piece of toast, stick an egg in it, and cook it along with your grilled cheese. It’s a wonderful way to get a tasty breakfast while also getting quite a bit of the necessary nutrients you need. If you prefer going without the cheese, the egg will give you all the protein you need, just make sure to cook a couple of them to compensate.

2. Add Some Feta Cheese on Top

Feta cheese really is a miraculous kind of food. Unlike other ingredients, it can go well with just about anything. This delicious piece of food from Greece is pretty healthy considering that it’s a kind of cheese. Relatively recently, people have been incorporating it into everything. Women adore it because it doesn’t contain the same kind of fat as other types of cheese. You aren’t limited to exclusively using it for breakfast, but it is recommended for the meal.

Since you’ve already headed down the path of healthy food, might as well go all the way. Something like asparagus would go well with a nice dose of feta cheese. Throw some feta on a piece of toast and sandwich some asparagus between them. Put it in the oven for about ten minutes and you have yourself a wonderful and deliciously healthy meal.
