Breakfast ideas that are high protein but NOT savory?

SpringcurlSpringcurl Posts: 8,002Registered Users
I can't do savory in the morning. My ideal breakfast is like coffee/muffin or cereal. However I know these aren't really healthy and I think I need more protein.

Any ideas for breakfast that's healthy, proteiny, but NOT savory like eggs or fake meat (I'm a vegetarian)?

    What about a high protein cereal? I think Kashi is the one I'm thinking of, they make one that they advertise as having as much protein as an egg.

    Or Greek yogurt with fruit and granola.

    Greek yogurt?
    Steel-cut oats with peanut butter and nuts?
    Cottage cheese?
    Ooh, breakfast quinoa porridge!

    Nuts? I generally eat a handful of almonds, a banana, and some OJ.

    You could always just do a protein-packed smoothie, too.

    I do a smoothie that has whey powder, banana, frozen berries, honey and milk. It has 20+ g of protein.

    This is what I have most mornings. I use plain Greek yogurt and I sprinkle 3 tablespoons of Bear Naked fruit and nut granola on it:

    Thats exactly my breakfast some mornings too :)

    I also love a hard boiled egg on ezekial toast with a little mayo and lettuce and tomato. Sprinkled with red pepper of course.

    That green smoothie with peanut butter, yogurt, bananas, and spinach sounded really good too.

    I do this too, but I add 1tbsp LSA and 2tbsp oat bran, plus a little extra milk, plus sweetener and vanilla, depending on what fruit I'm using.

    I like an oatmeal custard now and then.

    1. Beat one egg and add 1 tsp vanilla. Set aside.

    2. Cook 1/2 cup Old-Fashioned oats in 1 cup of milk on the stove. Just as it starts to boil, add the beaten egg plus vanilla. Stir frequently and somewhat vigorously for one minute.

    3. Pour in bowl and allow to cool for a minute or so. Add whatever toppings you like. Enjoy.

    This is REALLY good with fresh blueberries.

    This sounds GOOD...I think I'll try this Saturday morning. Do you have to temper the egg when you add it to prevent it from clumping?

    I like Kashi Go Lean Crunch - Honey Almond and Flax variety. It does claim to have as much protein as an egg, plus plenty of fiber.

    Some of the ideas above sound yummy!
    2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

    Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

    HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

    You know, I've never done that. I just add it real slow and be sure to stir it it REALLY well.

    But tempering may not be a bad idea!

    Steel cut oats all the way for me....love love love them. I make them like this:

    1 c. steel cut oats
    2 c. water
    1/3 to 1/2 c. almond milk
    3 T. splenda
    2 T. brown sugar
    2 T. milled flax seed
    1 T. wheat germ
    applesauce cup
    cinnamon
    vanilla extract
    salt

    Of course, whatever sweetener you use is to your personal taste, as well as the amount. I cook this in my rice cooker, which I adore, and it makes enough for hubs and I to have for breakfast for several days. I like to add dried cranberries to finish.

    Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,
    Used to worry 'bout rich and skinny, 'til I wound up poor and fat,
    Nowadays I kind of worry where my mind's been at,
    Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that. (Delbert McClinton - I Used to Worry from Never Been Rocked Enough)
