Yes we know eggs are a fantastic low sugar high protein breakfast option but I’ll admit, they don’t always do for speed. You’re in a major rush, spend ten minutes looking for the travel card and suddenly a quick high carb bowl of cereal with some fruit seems the most convenient and practical breakfast option.
This is highly unlikely to sustain you throughout the morning, so getting some more low sugar high protein breakfast options into your breakfast repertoire is one of the most effective things you can start doing to steady blood sugar and control hunger. It’s one of my weekly e-mail habits to try, so sign up here if you want a new one delivered each week to your inbox. Start cutting back on high carbohydrate breakfasts (yes fruit is effectively a carbohydrate too) and beating the mid-morning snack attack with protein force. Pow!
So, today I present a tasty option to a low sugar high protein breakfast that I just whacked together in a rush this morning. I needed to be super quick as was dashing out already a bit late, so cooking eggs was a big no no. I felt really hungry but I didn’t want to grab a quick bowl of cereal with some blueberries as would have been the usual habit. Sound familiar?
Slightly apprehensive, I instead opted for half a very ripe avocado spread on a slice of wholemeal toast from the freezer, topped off with a load of cottage cheese accompanied by a quick green tea. Pleasantly surprised at how delicious and satisfying this was, I felt full and it did wonders of lasting me through to lunch. Evidence that high protein breakfasts are the best thing for beating the mid morning munchies if you know you’re prone.
I know some are really not fans of cottage cheese. It does have a strange texture – thoughts?! Have you ever been in a rush and eaten a totally random breakfast that was bodged together good or bad?
