5 Protein Packed Breakfast Options To Keep You Fuller For Longer
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and a protein packed breakfast is even better! Starting off the day with a breakfast that has at least 15 grams of protein, along with a balance of complex carbohydrates and healthy fats will work to keep you energised throughout the morning and keep you fuller for longer. Below, we share 5 protein packed breakfast ideas that you can try throughout the week.
Green smoothies are as good for you as they look and are an easy way to pack a whole heap of nutritious ingredients into the one meal. This quick five-ingredient smoothie leaves no room for excuses for a simple, protein rich breakfast. Blend together, kale or spinach leaves, frozen mango pieces, Greek yoghurt, almond milk and natural peanut butter until smooth. Swap out the mango for frozen banana pieces to change the flavour but keep the protein value high. Enjoy immediately or pop it away in the fridge for after the gym.
Eggs and Avocado Toast
This is a favourite breakfast for anyone with a love for brunch. The humble eggs and avocado on toast is so simple yet so delicious and filling! With every egg containing 6-7 grams of protein and the additional protein found in wholegrain bread, this breakfast option quickly adds up to be one of the best breakfasts. It is also a perfect example of a well-balanced, nutritious meal with a healthy dose of protein, complex carbs and healthy fats. However, be careful not to add too many additional fats from butter, oils or sauces.
Craving pancakes but don’t have the time to make the traditional kind? Whip up this quick protein pancake recipe and set yourself up right for the rest of the day.

Cake Batter Overnight Oats
It sounds too good to be true, but this delicious oats recipe comes in at 20 grams of protein per serve. Satisfying your morning hunger and your sweet tooth all at the same time. Overnight oats are a great way to ensure you’re able to eat a well-balanced, nutritious meal even if you’re short on time.
