You’ve heard it said a million times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So you scarf down some oatmeal and a coffee on the way to work and BAM. You ate breakfast. You’re feeling healthier already.
Um…Not so much. Breakfast is important – this is a fact – but what you eat can have a huge effect on the rest of your day. While oatmeal is a great choice, studies show that people who consume 20-30 grams of protein for breakfast have better glucose control.
Lower glucose levels mean you’re less likely to get hungry throughout the day, and if you’re a snack monster like me, you could definitely use some lower glucose levels. By adding a serving of protein to your breakfast, you prevent carbs from spiking your blood sugar up too quickly, which means it won’t come down too quickly, so no sugar crashes! No food comas! No mid-morning slump! A high-protein breakfast sounds pretty great, doesn’t it?
….or add it to your Greek yogurt with fruit. You can even add a scoop to your bulletproof coffee if that’s your thing. Or, try one of these recipes for a high-protein breakfast that will make you excited to wake up every morning.
