The Best Morning Protein

The Best Morning Protein

How many times have you quickly toasted a couple of slices of white bread in the morning to eat in the car…only to find yourself completely starving two hours later?

This time of hunger is a dangerous period for calories – you’re already in work and the snack machine is the ONLY option!

In this article we will be taking a look at the best morning protein you can consume instead of the worthless carbs – stay full until lunch time and keep well clear of those 10:30am blues…

A Great Egg-Sample (See What I Did There?)

A Great Egg-Sample

For some unknown reason, a large majority of dieters swoon and faint when I tell them I often enjoy eggs in the morning.

We all know that the ‘yellow’ or ‘yolk’ in the egg isn’t exactly great for a diet…but who sits down and eats four egg yolks for breakfast?

Not many of us!

You see, the truth of the matter is that egg yolks have very little effect on your blood cholesterol and can even HELP with weight loss issues.

There are approximately 6 grams of high-quality protein in each egg you consume – this means they are an excellent choice of food for fending off hunger pangs.

When you manage to stay full until lunchtime – you are keeping your weight loss efforts on-course!

Low-Fat Dairy Choices

Low-Fat Dairy Choices

Not really my cup of tea, but there’s no getting away from the fact that low-fat dairy is a quality source of complete protein (and it’s a great choice for those of us who are eating ‘on the go’ in the morning!).

A good friend of mine, who has seen TREMENDOUS success through her weight loss efforts, swears by Greek yogurt.

She pointed out that it is high in calcium, potassium and vitamin D, and also contains about 17 grams of protein (per approx 5 to 7 ounces).

If you are partial to a little smoothie in the morning, and you can stomach Whey Protein, you should really think about combining the two – Whey contains around 25 grams of complete protein per scoop!

We’ve all Gone Nutty!

We've all Gone Nutty!

My favorite protein choice – at any point in the day (I’m a BIG fan!)

By simply adding a small portion of nuts to your choice of breakfast, you are effectively adding around 4 to 6 grams of protein. Don’t forget – certain nuts offer much higher levels of protein than others (almonds, cashews and pistachios).

If you don’t really fancy nuts in the morning – why not try a bit of organic peanut butter?

I’ve found that a lot of dieters who don’t like nuts, actually warm to the taste of peanut butter.

Remember – ORGANIC peanut butter for dieters (not the cheaper manufactured store version!).

Certain studies have also concluded that the right kind of peanut butter, can in fact moderate blood sugar levels.

Do You Really NEED That Bacon?

Do You Really NEED That Bacon?

Bacon and sausage are lovely in the morning, in my book, there’s nothing better for breakfast!

They are decent sources of protein…but they are also pretty shitty in regards to heart disease and cancer.

So what’s the alternative?

What healthy meats can you eat for breakfast that are packed with protein?

Well you can always make your own sausages…out of meats that are more acceptable from a health point of view!

Seriously, turkey or chicken can make great sausage patties when combined with simple ingredients – onion, fennel seeds, oregano, salt and pepper seasoning…

Think outside the box, and see what comes out the other end!

Not in the mood for sausages?

No problems!

Ever heard of the rich kids eating salmon and eggs for breakfast?

This is for a reason.

Packed full of heart-healthy fats and protein – salmon is an excellent breakfast choice.

  1. Good afternoon Chris,

    Reading your article I can say that I heartily agree with a lot of things you say but differ on a few.

    I have “happy” chickens on my farm and most days have a couple of eggs for breakfast, very tasty and very healthy.
    I personally prefer Kefir made of goats milk, I also eat full-fat Greek yogurt. It depends very much what type of fat you eat as there are very healthy and also extremely unhealthy ones.
    I do not buy low-fat products at all, I splash my extra virgin olive oil on my toast, I cook with olive oil, eat coconut oil.

    I am also a fan of nuts, especially walnuts and unpeeled almonds. I fully agree with whenever possible to eat organic. Seeds like Chia, sunflower, sesame, and linseed are also on the menu.
    No peanut for me

    Bacon is not the dangerous one but if possible from a happy pig. Now and then a slice of bacon will not harm you. What is a lot worse is the man-made foods with hidden sugars and bad fats to not forget E’s of all kinds and GMO’s, the list goes on.

    Regards, Taetske.

    1. Hi there Taetske – nice to meet you!

      Please don’t worry about agreeing with me – if you have different opinions they often help the articles here evolve! 

      Not a fan of peanuts then? No problem – they’re not everyone’s cup of tea. If you get the chance, let us know what part of the world your farm is at (I love finding out the geography of my visitors!). 

      Thanks for reading and for taking the time to leave your opinion. 

  2. Good Morning Chris,

    Thank you for replying to my comment.
    It is not that I hate peanuts but think they are not the best for your health, there are better nuts. Like Macadamia for getting Omega 7. Then peanuts are not nuts but legumes.

    I live in the south of Spain where in 1981 I bought a ruin, it was a real adventure. I went green that same year after my own awful experience with Roundup. That opened my eyes to the danger of pesticides.

  3. Good Morning Chris,

    Thank you for replying to my comment.
    I am blessed as I live on a 180-year-old farm in the south of Spain. I started this adventure in 1981 and put my savings, hard physical labor and my sweat and my tears in this project. Even if I have help now at the age of 67 the whole is definitely too big. On the other hand to be able to enjoy the peace and quiet, the beautiful nature, and not being at all far away from anything is priceless.

    Regards, Taetske
