Having protein for breakfast is one of the best ways to kick the 3pm sweet tooth craving. Why? Because it sets your body up with lots of fuel from the start. While there are some really good and healthy carb breakfasts, I find it leaves me hungry a little while after. So for a past fewyears, I have opted for the basic eggs and bacon or eggs and veg for breaky. And I have to say, it keeps me going and gives me a head start with my veg intake for the day too.
Protein is essential for building muscle, so if you are planning a workout later today, or have just done one, rebuilding what you have just broken down is super important. It is also a great way to fill you up for longer, reduce your overall calorie intake (if that’s what you are after) because you won’t be looking for those naughty snacks later on.
But I don’t have time in the morning …
Most of this can be prepared the night before, while you are already making a mess in the kitchen getting dinner ready. Then while you are having shower, putting your makeup on or getting the kids ready for their day, there is 10 minutes that this baby could be slightly cooking in the background. There is always a way 🙂
2-3 eggs (depending on exercise level)
1/2 cup of last nights cooked veg, roughly chopped
Optional: 1 slice short cut bacon
Pop a bit of Macadamia oil in your pan (this oil has a really high smoke point), stir all ingredients well in a bowl, pour into pan. Leave until the bottom is cooked, then flip. Wallahh! Done.
I enjoy mine with some smashed avo on the side (1/4 avo).
So you have got protein from the eggs, started your day with some veg (big tick), full of nutrients and low calories and have radiant looking skin from the avo. I’d call that an award winning meal. Enjoy 🙂
