Breakfast gets snubbed A LOT.
It’s like we’re too busy for breakfast sometimes. Which, of course, is silly, because breakfast is never too busy for us.
It’s true. Breakfast wants us to eat it. I swear when I look down at a plate of perfectly cooked eggs that they silently plead, “Eat me.” And who am I to say no?
Unfortunately, most of us have been taught that breakfast equals sugary cereal or some sort of refined carb with a cup of coffee. Even if you are into whole foods, it doesn’t mean that you’re eating the right kinds of things for breakfast. Well, hang onto that cup of coffee, and lets flesh out that breakfast a little bit, because one of the best ways to start your day is with a protein packed breakfast.
I know. I used to be the guy who always had cereal for breakfast. Maybe on the odd day it would be toast or toast with an egg on top, but after I read Tim Ferriss’s great book, The 4 Hour Body, I started experimenting with the idea of a breakfast that was high in protein and included veggies and slow-carbs like beans, lentils, yams, and the like. I was amazed by how much more energy I had in the morning and how much longer I could go in the morning without being hungry. I used to have to eat every 2 hours. Now it’s around 3 hours. That’s big for me.
I love breakfast. I look forward to it everyday now. No joke. And I want you to feel the same. With that in mind, I present to you 5 high protein breakfasts ideas that will make you leap out of bed and jumpstart your day.
P.S. You should try and eat breakfast within 45-60 minutes of waking up. Okay, now go eat!
So what breakfast dish makes you jump out of bed ready to start your day? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
