9 Easy High Protein On-the-Go Breakfast Ideas
This post for 9 Easy High Protein On-the-Go Breakfast Ideas was sponsored by Health Warrior. But rest assured, all thoughts and ideas are my own.
Now that Fall is in full swing, most people are back into a good routine and no more lazy summer mornings. It’s more important than any other time of year (hello, flu season!) to have easy high protein on-the-go breakfast ideas.
Protein (along with fat) is crucial for staying full and satisfied throughout your morning. I recommend getting at least 15-20g protein in at breakfast if possible. Not only is protein essential for maintaining (and building) muscle mass, but it’s also crucial in maintaining a healthy immune system.
So, here are 9 Easy High Protein On-the-Go Breakfast Ideas…
1) 2 hard boiled eggs, 2 slices whole grain bread, 1 cup fruit- pack this the night before in reusable containers like these. (affiliate link)
3) Homemade trail mix- 1/4 cup walnuts, 1/4 cup pistachios, 2 Tbsp raisins, 2 Tbsp chocolate chips- you can make double and triple batches of this and store in an airtight container. Pour the desired amount out in the morning and it’s perfect for eating at your desk or in the carpool line!
4) 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, 1 Tbsp nut butter, 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, 1 cup frozen berries- pack this the night before in a sealed container. Mix it up in the morning and eat on the way to work/school/etc.
5) 1/4 cup pecans or walnuts, 1 Tbsp chocolate chips, Health Warrior Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Protein Mug Muffin - This flavor was a bit messy, but SO SO good. Perfect for eating once you've gotten to work, or after the kids are at school :-) #mamadoesnotwanttoshare
6) 2 scrambled eggs (done the night before or on the weekend), 1 cup fruit or veggies, 1/2 cup plain yogurt. (Pack this the night before in a reusable container like the first option above.)
7) Quality protein or energy bar of choice (the Health Warrior chia bars and pumpkin seed bars are great) with an apple or orange (two of the most portable fruits!)
8) Overnight Oats- get creative with your flavors, or use these ideas here. Oats are a naturally high protein grain. Combine them with a liquid protein source like milk or yogurt and add in some nuts and pumpkin seeds!
9) Hummus and date sandwich- basically the sandwich version of this toast. I know it sounds a little weird, but I promise it will leave you full and satisfied!
