5 Easy Post Workout Breakfast Ideas

When it comes to breakfast, many of us get into the routine of grabbing a piece of toast running out the door, opt for a takeaway croissant with our morning coffee, or even skip it all together. But what are these choices doing for our health, how long do these options really keep us full for, and what could we be doing better, no matter how much time we have?

Research has found that a high protein breakfast jumpstarts your metabolism and thus, helps you burn more calories throughout the day, supports weight management and benefits muscle health. The reasons why? Protein takes longer to digest than traditional carb heavy foods, and in-turn, this will keep you feeling fuller for longer and more likely reach our goals. When we start our morning in a healthy way, we’re more inclined to make health choices throughout the day.

If you have ever tried a high protein ‘low carb’ diet, you’ll know it’s not always easy to reach your daily protein goal for the day. Therefore, we have put together a list of our tried and tested protein packed breakfast ideas that we know you’ll love and will help you start your day on the right foot.
