  1. 8 High-Protein Breakfast Ideas
    A protein-packed breakfast can satisfy your appetite and help you eat healthier all day long. Here’s how to make your favorite morning meals more nutritious and more filling.

    Basic breakfast: Bowl of cereal with milk

    High-protein idea: Some cereals are loaded with protein, and some have very little. Some good options: Kashi GoLean Original, which has 13 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber per serving; bëâr *phcorner* Fit Almond Crisp, which has 7 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber; and Barbara's Bakery High Fiber Original, which has 5 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber per serving. See a list on Please or Register to view links of healthy options that contain at least 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber per serving. For even more of a boost, sprinkle an ounce of dry-roasted sunflower seeds for 5 more grams of protein as well as the anti-aging vitamin E.
    Basic breakfast: Egg and cheese on a roll
    High-protein idea: Choose a breakfast burrito with beans, or try this easy recipe from Please or Register to view links for 25 grams of protein in your morning meal from the eggs and beans. Fill a corn tortilla with two scrambled eggs, 1/4 cup diced sautéed onions, and 1/4 cup of black beans. Then top with a tablespoon of pico de gallo (or more to taste).
    Basic breakfast: Butter or jelly on toast
    High-protein idea: Swap butter for 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or almond butter, which adds about 8 grams of protein to your meal. Since processed nut butters can be sneaky sources of sugar and other unhealthy ingredients, look for a super-short ingredient list (like the nut, and maybe some salt, according to Please or Register to view links).
    Basic breakfast: Yogurt
    High-protein idea: Trade a 6 ounce nonfat yogurt for a Greek yogurt version to get in about 6 more grams of protein per serving (for a total of 14 grams). Make your breakfast even healthier by adding fiber-rich berries to naturally sweeten your meal, and sprinkle on seeds, nuts, or high-protein, high-fiber cereal to increase the amount of protein even more.
    Basic breakfast: Oatmeal made with water
    High-protein idea: Swap water for skim milk (8 grams of protein per cup) and sprinkle on some chopped nuts to help you feel full until lunch. Try this apple walnut oatmeal from Please or Register to view links: Cook 3/4 cups of dry oatmeal with 1 1/4 cup of skim milk. Add 1 chopped apple and 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts. Sprinkle with cinnamon and drizzle with honey. Total: 24 grams of protein.
    Basic breakfast: Smoothie with milk or yogurt
    High-protein idea: Swap the milk and yogurt in your smoothie for kefir, a cultured probiotic beverage (like drinkable yogurt). One cup of plain nonfat kefir contains 11 grams of protein, more than the 9 grams in one cup of nonfat plain yogurt and the 8 grams in one cup of nonfat milk.
    Basic breakfast: Homemade muffin
    High-protein idea: Try baking these High-Protein Banana Oat Muffins from Please or Register to view links, which contain 8 grams of protein per muffin. (Did we mention they are also less than 100 calories and have only one gram of fat?) It’s a much healthier alternative to bakery muffins, which can have anywhere from 300 to 500 calories per serving and are usually high in fat, sugar, and sodium. To further amp up the protein of your homemade goods, spread a split muffin with a tablespoon of peanut butter (for 4 more grams of protein) and enjoy it with a cup of fat-free milk (for 8 additional grams).
    Basic breakfast: Banana on the run
    High-protein idea: Nothing beats a banana for grab-and-go portability, but add a protein-rich dairy source, like a single-serving cup of cottage cheese, and you’ll add a whopping 28 grams of protein to your morning meal. Cottage cheese is also a good way to sneak in some calcium and vitamin A.
