What does your power breakfast look like?

Not like this one I hope.

What’s missing in this photo? Taken about two years prior, this was my rendition of a “clean breakfast”: little did I know at the time, a breakfast like this would leave me ravenous for lunch and beyond. Without getting too nit picky about the macro count, one egg has about 7g and we should ideally be getting between 20-30g per meal. This helps stave off hunger and maintain muscle that will preserve your metabolic rate.

Ideas for protein add-ons to this breakfast!

  • Half cup of low-fat cottage cheese: 15g per half cup
  • Almonds: 6g per oz (20-24 almonds)
  • Greek plain yogurt: 20 g per 7 oz
  • Turkey sausage: depends on size of link
  • Chia seeds: 4g per 2 tbsp
  • Beans: 7-9g per half cup
  • Tofu: 10g per half cup
  • Egg white: 4g per large egg
  • Chicken breast (skinless): 27g per 3.5oz

Don’t be afraid to experiment with the above add-ons! See which ones work at keeping your tastebuds happy, your appetite satisfied, and your energy running high to get you through the morning and well into afternoon.

In good health,
