4 high-protein breakfast options for a healthy morning
From healthy fats to carbs and protein, it becomes important to include them in your daily routine. Of all these nutrients, protein is the most important one.
With the growing competition and tied-up routines, it becomes more important to eat a healthy breakfast that’s rich in protein as it helps in maintaining glucose levels while keeping you full for a long.
This high-protein breakfast helps in breaking the fasting cycle and elevates energy levels.
Several studies have proven that when people consume a healthy protein-rich breakfast regularly, they also tend to have less risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Thus, we bring you 5 such high-protein combinations that can do justice to breakfast and make it a super-healthy routine.
1. Eggs + Toast
This is one of the most simple breakfast combinations that one can have for breakfast. You can either have two boiled eggs with wholegrain toast with pesto sauce on it. Or, make scrambled eggs and enjoy with a wholegrain toast topped with pesto sauce. To make the scrambled eggs, melt a small cube of butter in a frying pan over medium flame. Next, crack 2-3 eggs in a bowl and season them with salt and black pepper powder. Whisk them well and pour them into the frying pan. Swirl them until the eggs thicken and larger curds appear. You have to be extra careful while finishing off with Scrambled Eggs, as they should not be overcooked. Once done, keep it aside. Now, grab bread and toast for a minute. When done, take a toasted bread and apply pesto sauce on it very well. Apply a thick layer of the fresh Scrambled Eggs on this toast and sprinkle a little salt and black pepper powder. Enjoy it as it is.
2. Sprouts + Nuts
The ultimate combination of sprouts and nuts will provide you with enough protein for the entire day. You can make Crunchy Sprouts Salad with this combination. All you need to do is boil 1 cup of sprouts for 1-2 whistles. Once done, drain the extra water and then add to a large bowl. Add 1/2 finely chopped cucumber, 1 tbsp tomato, 2 tbsp onion, and soaked nuts like almonds and walnuts along with dry roasted peanuts and 2-3 tbsp grated coconut. Add 1/2 tsp of lemon juice in it with salt to taste and 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil. Toss gently and enjoy this protein-loaded breakfast.
3. Chia Seeds and Peanut Butter Toast
Another protein-packed breakfast option, it is one of the simplest ones for which you would need just 2-3 minutes. However, make sure that you have soaked chia seeds prior to making this toast else you will need to wait at least 30 minutes for it. Soak 1-2 tbsp of chia seeds in enough water for using them. Now, when you are ready to make this toast, take a Toasted Bread and apply peanut butter to it in generous quantity. Now, take 1 tbsp of dried and swelled chia seeds and apply over the butter-toasted bread. Enjoy it as it is or you can also enjoy it with some sliced bananas.
4. Greek Yoghurt Breakfast Bowl + Protein Shake
Take one cup of Greek Yoghurt and whisk it well. Pour this yoghurt in a large bowl and add lots of fruits like pineapple, berries, kiwi, apple and even papaya with seeds. Have a protein shake along with this power-packed breakfast bowl and this should complete your protein intake for the day.
