Looking for some better breakfast ideas lately? Of course we’ve all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but yet sometimes it’s still easy to not seek out the most nutritional foods in the morning. That’s why I thought I would share my favorite healthy, yet delicious breakfast ideas with you! These protein-packed finds will leave you satisfied and give you energy to begin your day.

Yummm who doesn’t love pancakes? I know when pancakes come to mind most of us think of sugary cakes drenched in syrup. Protein pancakes are a healthy alternative though! I love to use Kodiak Cakes or Birch Benders protein pancake mixes! They both taste amazing and have about 15 grams of protein per serving. I usually top mine off with a bit of peanut butter and granola as well.
Ezekiel English Muffin with Almond Butter
These are my favorite go-to quick breakfast. Food for Life Ezekiel English Muffins are made of sprouted grains, so they contain no flour. These sprouted grains cause a natural change that allows the protein and carbohydrates to be assimilated by the body more efficiently. One of these muffins has 8 grams of protein in it, and when topped off with Justin’s Honey Almond Butter (my fave), this adds another 6 grams of protein.
Greek Yogurt Toast
When I first heard about the yogurt toast trend, I was a little bit unsure. After making it for the first time though, this is definitely a must-try. I personally use the Food for Life Ezekiel sprouted whole grain bread (yes, I’m obsessed). As for yogurt, a nutritionist recommended Dannon Oikos Triple Zero yogurt to me, and that’s all I have bought since! It’s nonfat, has no artificial sweeteners, and 15 grams of protein (per single serving container). Yogurt toast can be as simple as this, or you can drizzle some almond/peanut butter on top, or even a bit of granola!
This is also an amazing foodie trend right now! If you are an oatmeal person, I would definitely suggest overnight oats. These are perfect to mix up and put in the fridge the night before a busy day. I like to use some greek yogurt and Quest protein powder in mine to really make them filling! You can learn how to make overnight oats in my post here.
