A superior way to do breakfast is eating unprocessed foods in the morning that provide healthy, complete proteins and slow-digesting carbohydrates. Getting enough protein during the day — which the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health defines as 7 grams of protein for every 20 pounds of body weight — will curb your hunger hormones and keep you feeling fuller longer.
To make it easier for you to commit to healthy, satisfying, protein-filled breakfasts throughout the week, we've provided seven recipes that contain at least 13 grams of protein per serving. From breakfast tacos to sweet potato protein hash, these breakfasts are as irresistible as they are healthful and satisfying.
