RECIPE: Easy Quick Healthy Protein Packed Breakfasts

Breakfast sometimes gets lost between remembering to take your pill, spilling coffee on your shirt and rushing off to work.

But you should EAT BREAKFAST.  Preferably within 30 minutes of waking, to boost metabolism.  It’s important to get protein and a fruit and/or vegetable down the food tube too!

Some of these breakfast suggestions are lightening fast, all are less than 5 min. So make it happen.

Quick Cold high protein Breakfast:  plain greek yogurt (I like Fage, Chobani, NOT Dannon or Yo plait products which use loads of additives and milk from cows injected with growth hormones); 5-10 walnuts, blueberries mixed together; green tea

Quick Cold high protein breakfast: smoothie: 1/2 cup almond milk, frozen organic berry mix, 1 cup plain greek yogurt, small squirt of honey to taste

Quick Warm high protein breakfast: organic frozen waffle, 2 tsp of almond butter, 10 cherries; hot tea

Cold high protein breakfast: almond milk, organic granola and nut cereal, 1/4 cantaloupe; green tea

Warm high protein breakfast: 2 organic eggs (yolks included) spinach, swiss cheese, tomatoes, onion, mushroom omelet; glass of almond milk


(you can substitute any organic fruits and or vegetables based on season and preference)
