1. Egg Muffins, Egg White Omelette, Boiled Eggs
Eggs, eggs , eggs! Regardless of how you like your eggs in the morning they make the perfect on the go healthy breakfast! With 78 calories and 6g of protein per egg you can pack in the protein whilst getting a good dose of healthy cholesterol and vitamins A, B-6, B-12 and D.
By combining veggies of your choice (I usually go for red pepper, onion, leek and mushrooms) 3 egg whites and one whole egg you can make an egg white omelette containing around 150 calories (recipe here)! For the imaginative why not try creating egg white muffins? Find a recipe Here. With these carbless muffins, you can add your favourite veggies and cooked meats to make delicious snacks and a great breakfast option that can be easily packed on the go. For the unimaginative why not try boiling some eggs before bed to grab on your way out in the morning!
2. Overnight Oats
We have a great protein porridge option that can be ready in minutes, but if you really are pushed for time why not try this overnight oats recipe. Overnight oats can be easily made at night, stored in a jar and refrigerated- so you can grab and go! Oats provide a great source of slow releasing energy without the sugar and by adding a scoop of impact whey protein you can get over 20g of protein first thing in the morning. Try different flavours and add fruit- My favourite is rhubarb and custard with berries or Cinnamon Danish with boiled apple.
3. Avocado on High Protein Toast
Bread is one of the first things to go when dieting but with Dr Zaks high protein bread you can get complex carbohydrates with a massive 30g of protein per 2 slices. Try mashing an avocado and adding a little bit of salt for the perfect ratio of healthy fats, protein and complex carbohydrates.
Quinoa is high in protein naturally and often regarded as a grain to be added to savoury dishes. However by cookin quinoa, mixing with milk and protein you can create a high protein breakfast! Store in Tupperware and enjoy on the go. Find the recipe here.
5. No Bake Protein Bars
Swap your high sugar breakfast biscuits and cereal bar for a homemade protein bar! By combining oats, whey protein powder, nuts, seeds and berries, with peanut butter, a little coconut oil and yogurt/milk you can make your own protein bars in minutes!
6. Protein Pancakes
Protein pancakes are super easy to make and a delicious healthy alternative to regular pancakes. To make these from scratch, combine 1 egg or two egg whites with one scoop of whey protein and baking powder. Grease your pan with coconut oil and cook on a medium heat.
7. Smoked Salmon and Low Fat cream Cheese on Rye Crisp Bread
This is usually my Sunday morning breakfast if I’m on the go. Salmon is a great source of protein as well as essential omega 3 and essential fatty acids. Grab some rye crisp breads, coat with low fat cream cheese- you can buy lacto free versions if your prefer to avoid dairy, and top with smoke salmon- delicious!
9. Protein Smoothie
There are TONS of protein smoothie options for a quick healthy on the go breakfast. If you have a nutri bullet try combining your favourite fruits and a scoop of impact whey protein in the morning. If you’re a dessert kind of person try our chocolate whey or flavours such as cookies and cream with almond milk, nut butter and a banana. If I’m looking for an immune boost I like to combine tropical nutrigreens with pinapple whey protein, coconut water and green vegetables including cucumber, kale, spinach and green pepper with lemon, lime and kiwi!
If smoothie making isn’t for you try our protein breakfast smoothie mix! all you need is milk or water.
10. Chia Pudding
Chia seeds have a series of health benefits. First of all they help pack in the protein, but they also provide minerals such as manganese, a source of phosphorus and fibre! Try this delicious chia pudding recipe, once made store in a jar in the fridge overnight and grab on your way out!
