I’d love some other ideas for a quick and portable breakfast with protein.

I would love some more ideas for my breakfast as I am just having cereal. If you could also give me some ingredients for that please.

If you like egg, then my favourite are egg “muffins”.

Add protein (Eg. cooked chicken sausages, bacon , tofu, or ham) to each section of a 12 piece muffin tin. Add chopped veg of choice (eg. Zucchini, mushrooms & sundried tomatoes). Baked at approx 400 for 8-10 mins (times vary depending on what you use so check regularly).
Meanwhile beat and season 8 eggs. Pour egg mixture equally over protein and veg. Add cheese if you like. Bake for another 8-10 minutes. Can be batched and frozen for later. Even tastes good microwaved!

I really like the smart protein bars from PhD nutrition. No prep needed, they taste delicious, are low in sugar and very high in protein.

Hard boiled eggs are great! You can make them ahead of time and you even peel them ahead of time. Also a peanut butter almond milk or regular milk smoothie is fast and portable.

You could do smoothies. Delicious. ADD some protein powder to it and boom. Could also male scrambled eggs, boiled eggs or other with you packed as a meal. Great to bring up the energy

I use a ninja blender every morning to make a shake. In the shake is 1 banana, maybe a quarter cup or so of frozen blueberries, 3-4 whole frozen strawberries, 1 scoop of chocolate vegan protein powder, 1 scoop of dry oats, a spoonful of peanut butter, and some frozen spinach. All of that jam packed into one blended cup of deliciousness in the morning will get you just right!

On the go peanut butter and banana toast is one of my favorites on busy weekdays. Or, for those allergic to nuts, seed butters work just the same.

I scramble an egg and put it in a mug and eat in the car on the way to work/school… keeps me from being hungry for at least 3-4 hours. You can also take it in takeout containers and put condiments/toppings in. Yogurt is also a good option with some fruit for sweetness and vitamins and peanut butter for protein. Some mornings if I’m feeling lazy I’ll have wheat toast w peanut butter (or almond butter) and banana with a drizzle of honey if I want something sweet ☺️ Avocado toast with tomatoes (or carrots for an extra crunch) with a fried egg on top is also super yummy and keeps you full for hours. You could also do a smoothie with protein powder (go on Pinterest for some yummy recipes).

If you're not a vegetarian, you could make ham, egg, and cheese breakfast in a muffin tin and take them with you or you could make your own protein-packed granola bars made with peanut butter, almonds, raisins, etc.

A protein smoothie. Add a banana, a scoop of peanut butter, and your favorite, all natural, chocolate protein powder. I use almond milk as my liquid but you could also use water. And if you want alittle extra substance add in Greek yogurt. Blend it up and go!

Eggs and tuna. they're really good sources of protein, and are easy enough to prepare. sometimes i also have some bone broth alongside those two, just to warm me up.

Sunshine Q.
I highly recommend smoothies or protein shakes. Smoothies are very nutritious and have great benefits. They also taste great! Protein shakes are high in protein and come in several different flavors, so they are delicious! You can take both of these ideas anywhere, because they are beverages. You can also find more ideas online and in recipe books.

Healthier Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Breakfast Bars

Ingredients:
• 1 cup rolled oats (uncooked)
• 1/4 cup flour (can use wheat flour or sub with almond, coconut or GF blend flour)
• 1/2 tsp cinnamon
• 1/4 tsp baking powder
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 2 tbsp coconut oil
• 2 eggs
• 1/4 cup maple syrup
• 1/4 cup peanut butter (crunchy or creamy)
• 1/2 tsp vanilla
• 1/3 cup chocolate chip

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line a 8×8 pan with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the coconut oil by putting it in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Beat in the eggs. Add in the maple syrup, peanut butter and vanilla. Mix until combined.

4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the chocolate chips. Spread the mixture into the pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool before cutting into bars. Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 3-5 days.

Tip: when mixing coconut oil and eggs, try and make the eggs room temperature first so that the cold eggs don’t solidify the coconut oil again!

Egg bites work great for me! If you have the budget you can buy them at Starbucks. If not Costco sells some by the brand Three Bridges. Keep in the fridge until needed-microwave for one minute and BAM! 20g protein, 1 gram sugar on the go. And if one minute is still to much a grab and go protien bar is a good fall back.

Joy S.
Overnight oats in a small jar is great for this. Combine oats, milk of choice, protein powder, fruits of choice, but butter of choice, and any other desired toppings in a small jar. Store in the fridge overnight. You can also microwave it in the morning if you prefer a warm meal.

Lily Z.
If you can prep the night before nothing is quicker in the morning than grabbing overnight oats out of the fridge and taking it with you. You can customize the flavors and add whey powder for extra protein!

Stefanie T.
I love making oatmeal, blueberry, almond, honey bowls, but you could always put some milk in it and make it into a yummy smoothie. I also love smoothies, and after I workout usually put protein powder in mine and put it in the fridge so it's easy to grab.

Don’t confine what you eat in the morning to typical breakfast foods! I eat turkey sandwiches or leftovers a lot for breakfast 🙂

I am a big fan of soft boiling eggs. You can do this the night before or in the morning and it only takes about 7 minutes and it’s a great source of protein! Put about an inch of water in a pot, let come to a boil, place eggs in the pot and cover with lid. Set timer for 6 minutes and 30 seconds and then they are done! They will have a runny yolk so add more time if you don’t like that 🙂

Hey there! Some great ideas for quick breakfasts with lots of protein in them are overnight oats and Jimmy Dean’s Quick Scramblers ! For overnight oats, you simply take a 1/2 cup of regular rolled oats or steel cut oats ( my favorite). You then add a scoop of protein powder, then a 1/2 cup of regular milk, almond milk, etc, then you mix and put in the fridge overnight !! You can top them with peanut butter for extra protein, and some fresh fruit! The Jimmy Dean scramblers are pretty easy to find. They’re usually at Walmart and Kroger. Hope this helped !!

"Kind" brand granola bars… they make a breakfast granola bar with maybe 8g of protein. There are at least 2-3 flavors I've seen. They are good. They are dense.

Maybe hard boiled eggs… that are made in advance are another option.
