"The first breakfast idea is just toast and eggs," says Soraya. "This meal takes five minutes max to make, and it can be very customized. You can have your eggs boiled, scrambled, fried. You can make it into an egg sandwich or just have the toast egg separately." Eggs are a very nutritious and filling way to get protein for breakfast, says Collingwood. "I agree that there are a ton of ways to prepare them, including adding veggies to make it an omelet and boost nutritional value. Toast can be whole grain and can actually be in the form of English Muffins or even whole grain Bagel – half or whole depending on calorie range."  She also recommends egg muffin bites "that you can make up ahead of time with veggies and eggs/egg whites and have them on hand to warm quickly for 30 seconds in the microwave when you are in a rush."


The second meal she recommends is oatmeal. "This is great because you can just pop in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute and you're good to go." She suggests either pre-made higher protein oatmeal or making it from scratch with oats and adding in some sources of protein. "Quick oats are just as nutritious as steel cut oats in terms of providing good whole grain without added sugar. You can make it with milk or added protein and calcium or add a scoop of protein powder  to boost the protein as well. Also top with berries and a few walnuts for some antioxidants and healthy fats," adds Collingwood.

Veggie Omelet

Number three is a veggie omelet. "Same thing as the first one. It takes about five minutes or less. You can add a bunch of veggies, spice, and seasonings to really customize it to your taste preferences," she says. Collingwood is also a fan. "I like to mix egg whites with one whole egg so you can have more volume and fewer calories but also get the high nutritional benefit of some of the yolk," she adds. 

Peanut Butter Banana Toast

The fourth breakfast is almond butter or peanut butter banana toast. "This is essentially one slice of bread covered with almond butter or peanut butter topped with bananas," explains Soraya. "This is a super simple meal. You don't have to cook anything, and it's protein packed and nutrient dense." Collingwood is also a fan but notes "that it is not really protein packed."  She points out that one slice of bread will have 3 grams of protein (depending on brand) and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter has 4 grams of protein but 8 grams of fat. "You can use powdered peanut butter (and reconstitute it with water) for more protein and fewer calories and fat," she suggests.

Greek Yogurt

"And number five, the one I eat every single day because it's so easy and delicious, it's a Greek yogurt," Soraya exclaims. "You want to take vanilla Greek yogurt or a flavored Greek yogurt, top it with granola, cookie crumbles, fruit, really customize it to your preferences. A great mix of protein, carbs, and it's so easy to make. You can't go wrong with this one." Collingwood also loves Greek yogurt. "I always top mine with fruit, usually berries and grapes," she says. "A sprinkle of granola also gives it a nice crunch and some more carbs."

💪🔥Body Booster: Try and incorporate protein into your breakfast. It will help keep you satiated and fuller longer throughout the day, making you less likely to grab unhealthier options.
