Healthy, High Protein & Portable Breakfasts Your Clients Will Love

Breakfast. The most important meal of the day! As you know, your clients have no issues getting their fill of carbs at breakfast. Between things like oatmeal, toast, muffins and breakfast bars - there is no shortage of carb-loaded breakfasts.

But what about protein?

So many of our clients wait until dinner to consume a solid source of protein. But eating protein in the morning can help our clients feel full throughout the day, eliminate cravings and ultimately help keep the weight off, which is likely one of the reasons they were looking to work with you in the first place.

The difficulty is that protein seems harder to incorporate, transport and often less desirable than it's yummy sister, carbohydrate. So today we are counting down our top 5 delicious, portable, high protein breakfasts that we know your clients will love to make and eat!

This is our favorite tip when asking our clients to get in more protein. Try thinking outside the breakfast food box! Your client might think this one looks more like a lunch or dinner salad, but have them add a fried egg and they’ve got themselves breakfast!

PS: The kale and broccolini in this dish alone contain 23 grams of protein! Never underestimate your plant-based protein sources.

#5. Spinach & Goat Cheese Omelette

32 grams of protein per serving

Our favourite omelette of all time. It takes 10 minutes for your client to cook and between the eggs, spinach and goat cheese, this breakfast packs a mean punch of protein. Suggest that your clients fry it up, slide it into a container and re-heat with a side of salsa when they’re ready to eat.
