5 No-Fuss High-Protein Breakfast Recipes

5 No-Fuss High-Protein Breakfast Recipes

Whip up these easy brekkie recipes for a protein-packed morning meal.

Even if you don’t subscribe to the notion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, most will at least accept it’s pretty damn important – especially when their stomach starts growling aggressively from hunger during that mid-morning catch-up with the boss. Unfortunately it’s also a meal that’s hard to give the attention it deserves, because spending a lot of time making breakfast generally means either cutting into your sleep, or being late for work which, funnily enough, your boss wants a catch-up about.

All of which makes these five quick, easy and tasty recipes from Instagram’s finest no-fuss foodie The Food Grinder an absolute godsend. Each contains a hefty portion of protein so they’re ideal fodder for a post-workout meal – if you’re up early enough to fit in a workout before breakfast, that is.

The upsides of this delicious breakfast are obvious. Salmon provides protein and omega 3 fatty acids, asparagus is loaded with vitamins and minerals, and eggs is eggs. The downside is equally clear – you’ll never want a normal fried egg again.

  3. Microwave for 2 mins
  4. Take out and mix in one scoop of whey & a spoon of peanut butter

It’s not a particularly healthy breakfast, but it is healthier than getting a McMuffin from your local Golden Arches, and going home-made is more satisfying to boot.

  2. Mushrooms
  3. 4 Eggs
  4. Crumbled Feta
  5. Chives
  6. Bake for 20ish mins

Healthy No-Fuss Fry-Up

  1. Mushroom
  2. Spinach
  3. Tomato
  4. Halloumi
  5. 1 Egg

Swap out the bacon and sausage for halloumi and spinach and the traditional fry-up takes on a new, somewhat healthier look. And halloumi is the best breakfast food anyway.

I recently explored Health Logics’ collection of no-fuss high-protein breakfast recipes, and they’ve been a game-changer for my mornings! One standout was the easy protein pancakes, which I made using Kodiak Cakes mix (https://kodiakcakes.com). They were delicious and kept me full until lunch. Thanks for sharing these simple yet nutritious breakfast ideas!
