For some people, hitting their protein goal for the day is easy peasy!
For others, they aren’t sure how to get it all in.
And for those who struggle to hit their protein quota, they’re often neglecting a prime time to get a good chunk of it in …breakfast!
If you’re someone who typically only grabs a slice of toast, a bagel, or a piece of fruit for breakfast, this is likely why you’re struggling in the protein department.
While those are great carbs, there’s not much protein there.
5oz Plain Greek Yogurt – 14g
Scoop of your favorite protein powder- about 20g
*Whip together, and now you’re consuming over 30g for a simple, tasty breakfast!
This is great as a snack as well!
Oatmeal & Fruit
½ cup quick oats -about 6g
Scoop of your favorite protein powder – 20g
Add-ins like banana, berries etc…
*Mix powder in post cooking, adding extra liquid to desired consistency.
