21 High-Protein Breakfasts to Start Your Day

21 High-Protein Breakfasts to Start Your Day

We’re constantly told about the importance of eating breakfast as it’s known to boost metabolism, decrease our risk of certain diseases, and provide us with our energy needs for the day. However, those benefits may not be coming through if you’re consuming foods that hold little to no nutritional value.

The most recent evidence is emphasizing that it’s what we eat for breakfast that actually matters. Foods that contain protein have been scientifically proven to affect the gastrointestinal hormones that target the brain to adjust our appetite and satiety. In an experiment conducted at the University of Missouri, participants were shown to have increased satiety throughout the entire day and were less likely to snack on fatty foods.

It’s also been acknowledged to be good for the brain. So besides consuming protein just for your post-workout gains, use it to ace your next midterm. To kick-start your day, check out these high protein breakfasts:
