Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. It is the perfect time to start your day the right way with a nutritious meal. When it comes to breakfast, I focus on a few nutrients. I usually make sure that my meal has a whole grain, is protein rich and has fiber.

Typical breakfasts that I eat are oatmeal with flax and chia seeds topped with peanut butter, Greek yogurt or on the weekends, eggs. As much as I like to switch up what I eat, I am a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast usually.
Over the weekend, I made this spinach and bell pepper egg bake for breakfast. It is high in protein with the addition of eggs, milk and cheese. This meal is filling yet quite a nutritious choice for you. It can be difficult to get your vegetables in in the morning and egg dishes are the perfect opportunity to do so.

If you prefer other vegetables in it, that's fine too! Use whatever you enjoy and have on hand.

When I eat a breakfast that is not high in protein such as cereal, I feel hungry shortly after. Getting 25-30 grams of protein for breakfast (or at least before noon) can help you to feel more full through the morning. To help get more protein, you can pair your meal with an 8-ounce glass of milk for 8 grams of protein.

Many Americans eat most of their protein for dinner but many nutrition experts recommend spacing it out through the day. When I feel more full from breakfast, I have the energy to get more done. My most productive time of the day is the morning so this is very important to me.
For a protein packed breakfast, try my spinach and bell pepper egg bake with a glass of milk!

  1. I eat oatmeal mixed with cooked quinoa and teff that I make earlier in the week. I also add a bit of Greek Yogurt, sliced banana, walnuts, chia seeds, flaxseeds and a drizzle of honey. It's enough to fuel me for a long run and hold off hunger until lunch!
