Quick, Protein-Packed Breakfasts for Busy Mornings

Mornings can be pretty hectic- at least in my household with two young(ish) children. Anything I need or want to do for myself is definitely taking a back seat. If you find yourself rushing out the door trying to get to work or your kids to school and making sure you have done all the things…. then suddenly come to realize that you forgot to eat breakfast! and now you are wanting to drive thru the closest Starbucks because you are starving and in desperate need of a pick-me-up, you are not alone. Know that avoiding the Starbucks quick fix just takes a little thought and preparation. So keep reading because I’ve got your back! Today, I am going to give you a few quick, protein-packed breakfast recipes you can have ready to go so you don’t compromise your health or give in to the drive thru.

Protein-Packed Breakfasts: Your Morning Power Boost

Getting adequate amounts of protein at breakfast really does matter, especially when you’re trying to gain energy and lose weight. Planning and prioritizing your morning meal (when done correctly) gets you energized, metabolism fired-up, supports your hormones, and supports your weight loss goals. Below are a few protein packed recipes that are simple to make and great for busy mornings.

1. Breakfast Burrito

Wrap up a protein-packed blend of eggs, veggies, and your favorite toppings for a portable delight that keeps you satisfied and energized. Are you a meat eater, no problem, throw in some canadian bacon or bacon, and even chicken works too!

Breakfast burritos are a fantastic option to grab and go. They are easy to make with leftovers too! Just toss protein and veggies leftovers into a burrito, add in scrambled egg or tofu, and breakfast is served. Adding some fresh herbs will liven up your burrito, and you can even top it with fresh salsa or guacamole. Yum!

You can use any leftover veggies, but some of my personal favorites are peppers, sauted or raw onion, mushroom, broccoli and asparagus.

2. Quinoa and Fruit Smoothie Bowl

Sounds like an interesting combo, doesn’t it? Trust me, it’s delcious. All you need to do is blend your favorite nut milk with one serving of protein powder, add in cooked quinoa, and fruits. My favorite mixture is raspberry, kiwi, peaches, and pineapple. Combine chopped fruit into a bowl, stir in cooked quinoa at an appropriate ratio; you don’t want too much or too little. Drizzle with protein shake and freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice. Stir together and enjoy right away or refrigerate for future use.

Some of the best kinds of breakfasts are the ones that are ready for you when you wake up. That’s why I absolutely love this quinoa fruit salad option. You can make it the night before, open the fridge in the morning and dig right in. No cooking or waiting is involved. Perfect for those busy mornings where you’re tempted to skip breakfast!

3. Gluten-Free English Muffin Sandwich

Who doesn’t love a good bfast sammy?

Toast a whole grain English muffin, a slice of Ezekiel bread, or your favorite gluten-free bread. Spread guacamole or fresh avocado on top, top with fresh tomato, and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. (When you have some extra time in the mornings, try cooking a whole portobello cap in olive oil.) When cooked, place it inside of your English muffin to create a breakfast sandwich. You can also add guacamole to this — it’s delicious!

Don’t let busy hectics mornings compromise your health. These quick and protein-rich breakfast options are here to kickstart your day, supporting your energy, metabolism, and weight loss goals. The next time you’re tempted by the drive-thru, choose one of these health-conscious alternatives. Start your morning right – one delicious bite at a time. Here’s to a fabulous start to your day!
