You might have heard the saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While this is true to a certain extent, we’ve been doing it all wrong. The truth is that having a protein-packed breakfast is far more efficient than a breakfast full of carbohydrates. The protein can actually suppress hormones that cause hunger. But the main question is how can you make a breakfast that is high in protein and low in carbs?
One way is to be creative and combine lots of ingredients that you would consider as being healthy. For example, instead of having a full bowl of unhealthy cereal in the morning, why not combine some bran cereal with Greek yoghurt and chopped almonds. The Greek yoghurt and the almonds will provide that added protein that’ll make your day.
French toast used to be a common item in any breakfast menu. While, this popularity has gone down a bit, you can use it to have a breakfast filled with protein. This can be done by using a slice of whole-grain bread and then using a normal egg. You can also use spices like cinnamon to add extra flavour to the French toast. The final serving can be done alongside something like plain yoghurt, something that’ll provide a lot of protein.
Omelettes have always been popular here in the UK and an egg will provide a lot of protein. However, one way to make this breakfast even tastier and healthier is to add lots of different vegetables. You can add all sorts of vegetables like mushrooms, peppers and tomatoes. If protein from a single egg isn’t good enough then why not use egg whites from 4 eggs and discard the yolks. Egg whites are the parts of the egg that provide the protein and so would significantly increase the protein content of the omelette. If you don’t know how to make eggs properly, you need to read this post.
