High Protein Breakfast Ideas

Food

Breakfast, bRUNch, french toast, breakfast burritos, cereal… hands down my favorite meal yet there is all this hype about skipping the goodness and waiting until lunch, it’s less than stellar second half. I’m not knocking fasting, it’s helped thousands of people lose weight, reverse insulin resistance, and combat health issues.

The downside, if you’re dealing with hormonal imbalances, hand raised high, you could be compromising the very goal you’re trying to achieve, feelin’ good and lookin good.

If you’re a breakfast fan and you need to support that body, here are so great breakfast ideas, all with at least 15 grams of protein to help keep you full & your insulin levels cruisin’.
