With breakfast being the most important meal of the day, what we eat matters. Try these 3 easy protein packed breakfast bowls that take less than 5 minutes.
3 Protein Packed Breakfast Bowls in Under 5 Minutes
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, not everyone has time to eat breakfast. Here’s the thing, without this important meal, weight loss is hard. Breakfast helps stimulate the metabolism for the day. Skip breakfast and you run the risk of midday sugar snacking. Not only is eating breakfast important but what you eat matters too. You don’t want to just grab anything for the sake of eating. Breakfast is a time to get in some healthy fat, protein, and complex carbs to get your day started. You will definitely want to skip the sugary donuts and muffins!
But, now what? You need to eat breakfast, it needs to be healthy, but you have no time. Don’t worry. I am going to share three protein packed breakfast bowls with you. These smoothie breakfast bowls are quick, easy and packed full of protein. Why is protein such an important part of breakfast? Protein is going to help keep you full longer and help you feel satisfied quicker than a low protein option. Protein will also help you develop that lean muscle mass you’re working towards.
Here are three protein packed breakfast bowls. These will take less than five minutes and keep you full all morning.
Superfood Smoothie Bowl
A delicious and healthy way to start your day. This recipe only takes a handful of ingredients and a few minutes to throw together. Add a frozen banana, some fresh berries, protein powder, and a scoop of acai powder to a blender with some coconut milk. Blend and add to a bowl. Top with some goji berries, granola, and raisins. You now have yourself a protein rich breakfast in just under 5 minutes to start your day right! Running late? Pack this in a glass container in a lunch bag, and bring it with you to the office. No more excuses for not getting a protein rich breakfast into your morning!
Protein Packed Oats
This recipe is great if you love a morning bowl of oats but are looking for a way to spice things up. Instead of making regular old oats, try mixing in egg whites while your cooking your oats in almond milk or water. This adds a healthy dose of protein. Top with some unsweetened Greek yogurt for extra protein and creaminess, fresh berries, and granola for crunch. Top with a sliced banana and enjoy! If you struggle to find time to sit down and eat breakfast, bring this to work and re-heat. Eating breakfast just got easier with this protein-packed oatmeal recipe.
Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowl
If you’re looking for something different, try this sweet potato breakfast bowl. The trick to making this a five-minute meal is to boil a couple of sweet potatoes on food prep day. Store them in the fridge, so you have them handy to whip up this five-minute breakfast bowl. Simply add one boiled sweet potato into a bowl with some protein powder, dairy-free milk, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir to combine and top with some almonds, bananas, and raw cocoa nibs. This is a perfect recipe for the upcoming fall months and hits the spot every time. It’s almost like having sweet potato pie for breakfast.
If getting a healthy breakfast into your morning proves to be a challenge, I challenge you to try one of these recipes! Not only do they take less than five minutes to make, they are jam packed with protein and are super delicious. Don’t settle for that morning muffin, or that donut you get on the way to work. Put in an extra five minutes each morning, and your health will thank you for it!
