Last week in a video I mentioned eating a quality breakfast should be the first step towards following a good nutritional plan. If time is an issue for you, which is probably the number one excuse for passing on breakfast, here are some pretty simple breakfast’s that can be put together.
Quick Protein Oatmeal: Stir ½ scoop whey protein powder into ½ cup cooked oats. Add in any of the following: ¼ cup berries, 1 tbsp natural peanut or almond butter, 1 tsp cinnamon.
Mixed Berry Shake: Combine ½ cup frozen strawberries, ½ cup frozen blackberries, ½ cup frozen blueberries, ½ cup nonfat plain yogurt, 1 scoop whey protein, 1 tbsp honey, and 1 cup of ice in a blender. Blend until smooth. You may have to add a little water, doing so 1 tbsp at a time. Stevia may be added for additional sweetness.
Breakfast Replacement Shake: Combine ½ cup frozen berries, 1 tbsp natural peanut butter or 1 tbsp coconut oil, 2 tbsp whole oats, 1 cup water or unsweetened almond milk, 1 scoop whey protein in a blender. Blend until smooth.
