Easy Ways to get More Protein in Your Breakfast
My eating habits changed dramatically last month when I decided to pay more attention to what types of food I was putting in my body. I learned a lot about nutrition and what types of foods work well for my system. One of the most important pieces of information that I learned was that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. If I started my day with a breakfast that was protein-rich, I didn’t feel the need to snack all day.
Did you know that you should be eating 25-30 grams of protein every morning according to many experts? I know that I wasn’t getting nearly enough. One of the best ways I have found to boost my morning protein levels is to pair my breakfast with a tall glass of milk. This is a delicious way to help reach 25-30 grams of protein and help my body feel fuller, longer.
Adding a glass of milk to your breakfast is a simple way to add protein. Each ounce of milk contains 1 gram, so if you add an eight ounce glass of milk to your breakfast routine, you are adding 8 grams of protein! You don’t have to enjoy a glass of milk by itself, you can mix a glass of milk into your favorite smoothie or a tasty overnight oats recipe that you love. My favorite way to get enough protein is to make a small batch of overnight oats, fry an egg to go on top and pair it with an 8 ounce glass of milk. Sometimes I add a little spinach if I have it in the fridge. This simple and easy breakfast meal helps to ensure that I get enough, about 25-30 grams and keep me focused and full of energy all morning long..
Turning Over a New Leaf This Year
I have dedicated this year to being healthier and finding more time for myself. One routine I have gotten into is going to the gym 2-3 times a week to run and lift a few weights. My body feels different and my endorphins are firing when I get into my running mode. I love the way it makes me feel. The second way I am being healthier is by eating better and making sure that I am only eating 3 well balanced meals. Eating enough protein in the morning is something that I will strive to do.
