There are at times you eat bagels and go out and it feels like you have not eaten after a couple of hours. Truth is, not all types of breakfast have equal capacity for providing an energizing breakfast. In 2009, the “British Journal of Nutrition” came to discover that volunteers who were given a high-protein breakfast felt more energetic and enthusiastic than those who ate a high-carbohydrate meal.
Taking this protein breakfast especially after doing your early morning workout is essential for your body because the amino acid in protein aid in muscles recovery and growth. We recommend that you go for a nourishing morning protein diet; here are a few tips to try:
1. Egg It On
According to Harvard School of Public Health, iron, choline, and Vitamin B are enveloped in an egg and the reasonable intake of its yolk does not contribute to the development of heart disease. It was also said that the cholesterol in egg yolks does not have much impact on cholesterol levels. Consuming a breakfast made of eggs also helps in the weight loss progress.
2. Delight in Dairy
Dairy with low-fat provides a nourishing diet that is easy to get on the go. Low-fat has some important elements such as potassium, calcium, and vitamin D. Try the part-skim ricotta cheese that delivers 14 grams of protein per 1/2 cup, cottage cheese that has 12 grams of protein per half 1/2 cup, or plain Greek yogurt that contains 17 g per 6-ounce serving. Eat these with toast or fruit, or stir into hot cereal.
3. Get Nutty
Nut intake can add 4 to 6 g of to your protein breakfast whether they’re sprinkled over cereal or eaten out of hand. But this depends on the type of nuts you consume. There are higher protein nuts like cashews, pistachios, and almond which are great tasty options.
A good idea is nut butter over bagel and toast toppers, such as cream cheese, butter, and jelly because of its protein content – this combination will render at least 7 g per 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or almond butter. One can also derive Vitamin B and heart-health benefits from nuts.
In 2013, the “British Journal of Nutrition” found that the consumption of peanut butter at breakfast helps to maintain sugar levels reasonably better than the consumption of a high-carbohydrate lunch.
