5 Protein-packed breakfasts

5 Protein-packed breakfasts

One thing I’ve learned on my health and fitness journey is to not fear protein, rather I need to embrace it! Protein is the building block of bones, muscles, skin and more. I’ve found that when I eat more protein I am satiated longer and feel full with less food. Protein in my first meal is so important. It boosts my metabolism and curbs hunger levels for the day. Ever feel starving an hour after you eat breakfast? Yeah, me too. Then I started adding protein and that hour turned into three!

As a girl who works out 6 days a week, I know my muscles break down as I train and they need to repair. Protein repairs and strengthens your muscles. Eating clean protein has helped me lose body fat and tone my muscles rather than bulk them. I love using bone broth protein in many of my recipes because it also contains collagen which strengthens my hair, skin and nails and helps with gut health. Moral of the story, eat protein.
