Knowing what to eat for breakfast is crucial for anyone looking to lose fat.
A breakfast with the right macronutrient split can lead to indirect fat loss benefits by providing greater satiety.
It also seems to play a crucial role in maximizing performance regardless of when your workout is.
So, what I’ll do is run through 3 quick, healthy, and easy healthy breakfast recipes and go through what scenarios every high protein breakfast is ideal for.
I’m also going to do is just show you the base recipe for each meal, and show you the different ways that you can customize each of these protein breakfast recipes based on your taste preferences and daily target calories and macros.
The first high protein breakfast is none other than protein coffee + rice cakes.
The fast digesting carbs and protein and the minimal fat and fibre content in this meal makes it the ideal choice if you train early in the morning and just need something quick and easy and not too filling shortly before (~30-45 mins) your workout to help enhance your performance and recovery.
BASE CALORIES/MACROS: ~345 calories, 33g protein, 39g carbs, 2g fat
1-2 cups (250-500 mL) Black Coffee (5 calories)
1 scoop (35g) Whey Isolate Protein Powder (130 calories)
1 Sliced Banana (105 calories)
3 Rice Cakes (105 calories)
Dash of cinnamon
BASE WITH PEANUT BUTTER: ~435 calories, 37g protein, 43g carbs, 10g fat
1 tbsp (15g) peanut butter (+90 calories)
BASE WITH PB2: ~405 calories, 39g protein, 45g carbs, 4g fat
2 tbsp (13g) PB@ (+ 60 calories)
The second breakfast idea that’ll help with fat loss is the egg wrap.
This is the perfect option for a high protein, low carb breakfast for those who want to save more carbs for later on in the day and aren’t going to be training immediately after.
What you choose to top this with is totally up to you, but just do so in each of the 4 sections here.
I personally add a serving of either cheese or avocado, some seared mushrooms and peppers, and a small amount of bake
