Fuel Your Day with Nutritious, High Protein Breakfast Recipes

High protein breakfast - Eggs

Table of Contents

Many common breakfast foods are refined carb-heavy (cereals, toast, bagels) or high in saturated fat (bacon and eggs).

While these can be part of a balanced diet, I highly recommend focusing on getting more protein at breakfast.

Starting your day with a high protein breakfast will allow you to power through until lunch without mid-morning snack attacks, which is especially helpful if trying to lose weight or build muscle.

However, it’s easy to get stuck in a breakfast rut.

Eating the same few things every day can get boring over time. Explore new morning options that provide a mix of lean protein, complex carbs, healthy fats and fibre.

Nutritionist-recommended choices like smoothies, egg dishes and yoghurt/kefir bowls make balanced, nourishing breakfasts to start your day strong. Here’s some breakfast inspo to get you started!

High Protein Breakfast Smoothies

Blend up a smoothie using Greek yoghurt or Kefir for protein, frozen fruit for fibre and texture, greens for vitamins and minerals, and nut butter or chia seeds for healthy fats.

Some tasty combinations include:

  • Coconut milk, Blueberries, Puslin unflavoured vegan protein powder, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, banana, oats
  • Blueberries, almond milk, almond butter, chia seeds, blueberries, 1/2 avocado, collagen
  • Pineapple, kiwi, coconut water, 1/2 avocado, spinach, coconut oil
  • Smoothies provide a hearty dose of nutrition to keep you full until lunch.

High Protein Breakfast Bowls Are Endlessly Customisable

Build a breakfast bowl starting with a base of Greek yoghurt, then pile on your favourite mix of proteins, fruits, veggies and superfoods. Get creative with toppings like:

  • Fresh or frozen fruit like berries, apples or pears
  • Nuts and seeds for crunch and healthy fats
  • Nut butters for plant-based protein
  • Chia seeds, flaxseeds, hemp hearts for omega-3s
  • Cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla for flavour

With so many possible combinations, you’ll never get bored with high protein breakfast bowls!

Eggs Are a Timeless, High Protein Breakfast Staple

It’s easy to see why eggs are a breakfast favourite – they’re inexpensive, packed with protein and versatile.

Whip up a veggie-loaded omelette or frittata, or bake up egg muffin cups for on-the-go breakfasts.

Add spinach, bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, or any veggie you love.

For a Mexican twist, make huevos rancheros with sunny-side up eggs served over corn tortillas, black beans, salsa, avocado and cotija cheese.

However you prepare them, eggs and veggies provide staying power to start your day right.

Final Tips for Breakfast Success

Prep some components ahead – cook hardboiled eggs, portion out smoothie ingredients, cut fruit, etc. so you have a healthy, high protein breakfast that is ready to grab.

Opt for whole food sources of protein like eggs, Greek yoghurt, nut butters and nuts. They provide more nutrition than processed options.

Pair your protein with fibre from fruit, veggies and whole grains to stay fuller longer.

With a little planning, you can build nutritious breakfasts that set you up for health and wellness success.
