3 High Protein Breakfast Foods to Fuel Your MorningArticle posted in: Nutrisystem
Although breakfast is often a frequently skipped meal, there are benefits to eating a meal shortly after waking up. One of the biggest advantages to eating a high protein breakfast is that it prevents late morning snacking—or overeating come lunch time.
The Benefits of a High Protein Breakfast
Of course, what you choose to eat is important. Choosing a box of donuts or a greasy meal from the drive-through isn’t going to give you the nutrition boost you want to start your day. You want to make sure that you’re implementing healthy breakfast habits that will set your day up for success.
One of those healthy breakfast habits is eating protein—which can help make you full and keep you full for longer. In fact, according to a study out of the University of Missouri-Columbia, eating a breakfast high in protein can significantly improve appetite control and reduce unhealthy snacking in the evening hours.
