The 3 Best High Protein Breakfasts for Women
High protein breakfasts that don't add another hour to your morning routine. A dream, right? Wrong. We've spent a lot of time hacking our lives, and our breakfasts, to get the most well-rounded meals with the most protein possible. So much so, we might even add a second breakfast to the schedule to reward ourselves.
There are a few ways to know how much protein a woman needs in her everyday life, like this article shows, but an easy way is 1 gram for every pound of body weight. How do we start every day on the right foot, though? It's so easy to have a coffee and a bagel on the go, but is it the best option? Can we make it better? Of course we can, and some don't even involve cooking!
Easy High Protein Breakfasts
- PRTCL Cottage Cheese with Almond Butter: Use a fork to whip 1 cup of cottage cheese until smooth, add 1 scoop PRTCL ESSENTIAL in any flavor, stir until blended. Add 2 tbsp of almond butter, mix and top with fruit. Enjoy! (Protein: 55g)
- PRTCL Chicken Sausage Quiche: Whip up the PRTCL protein pie crust, first! Then whisk 6 eggs. Add 2 scoops of PRTCL unflavored ESSENTIAL protein to 2 cups whole milk and stir until dissolved. Add whole milk & protein to eggs and whisk until combined. Add 1 cup shredded cheese. Pour mixture into pie crust. Add chopped up chicken sausage and any chopped vegetables you'd like. Bake for 45 minutes at 350*. (1/4 of the quiche = 49g protein)
- Bacon, Eggs, & Protein Coffee: 3 strips of turkey bacon, 2 hard boiled eggs, and a PRTCL protein coffee. (Protein: 49g) Both the bacon and eggs can be cooked on Sunday and eaten throughout the week!
These breakfasts are not only high in protein, which is so important, but also high in Omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to be crucial to a woman's health. Studies have shown that these fatty acids are key in preventing certain types of cancers in women, as well as promoting healthy pregnancies, and increasing heart health!
The best part about these recipes is that they can all be made ahead of time and eaten over a few days! No extra time added to your morning routine and meals that everyone in your family will love to eat!
