Adding Protein to Breakfast

Today's post is all about protein.

I'm a big breakfast eater. 
It's probably my favorite meal of the day; however, during the week my time in the kitchen during the morning is limited. 

I would love to make a three course breakfast everyday, but I can't.

Recently, I've found myself more hungry in the morning when I get to school. 

So, I'm on the lookout for some adjustments to make to my morning breakfast. 

Typically I eat one over easy egg, juice and maybe a piece of toast


a packet of Quaker oatmeal and a glass of milk or juice

Recently, I've been adding a piece of toast with peanut butter and sometimes I have a slice of banana bread or even half of a grapefruit.

So, what do you guys eat?

What would you suggest me to add to keep feeling fuller longer?

I'm really not into quick little bars. 
I feel like a bar is so unhealthy, unless it's not. 

I like eating whole foods or foods where I can tell what all is going into my body. 

Protein seems to keep me fuller longer, but what do you all think?


  1. I try to add protein to every meal! I like to meal prep breakfast burritos and stick in the freezer to grab and go before school. Or I love Think Thin bars--20g of protein and 0g of sugar.

  2. I eat 2 granola bars. I make my boys eggs in the microwave to have egg and bacon breakfast tacos. I also like Think Thin bars but only the ones with sugar. The ones with zero sugar are full of aspertaine (sp?) and make me super sick.

  3. My favorite breakfasts are overnight oats, oatmeal (make my own w.old fashion oats) or toast with almond butter, a sliced banana on top and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top!

  4. I am a big fan of hard boiled eggs in the morning, as well as eggs and spinach little muffins. I make everything on Sunday and eat on it throughout the week. I have also heard that hard boiled eggs are good on avocado toast!
