5 Simple Protein-Packed Breakfast Options

Breakfast, granola, and fruit.

We talk a lot about the power of protein — and how important it is to eat a protein-rich breakfast.


But how do you make sure you’re getting a high-protein breakfast, exactly? What does that even look like?


It can get confusing…


Especially when most of us are used to eating toast or cereal for breakfast.


I’ve put together a quick list of 5 breakfasts that pack at least 20 grams of protein for you.


But first, here are two reasons a protein-rich breakfast matters: 

●   Adding more protein to your diet helps boost your metabolism and reduce hunger during the day.

●    Eating a healthy breakfast can lay the groundwork for better choices throughout the day.


NOTE: These high-protein breakfasts can also become a healthy lunch or dinner!
