30g OF PROTEIN IN 30 MIN OF WAKING

Losing weight and staying lean is done much more efficient and effectively if you make a habit of putting first things first . That means doing what your mother and father have been telling you to do your whole life .  EAT BREAKFAST !!! In this post I will be covering why I believe having 30grams of protein within 30 minutes of waking up is the best thing you can do for yourself in terms of setting your day up for success .

WHY PROTEIN ?

Protein is a building block of cells throughout the body. It is necessary for healthy skin, nails, muscles, cartilage and blood. Protein helps to build and repair bodily tissues, and it is used to produce hormones and enzymes. When you eat protein for breakfast, you will feel more energized and ready to take on your day. You are also more likely to feel full longer, which can lead to healthier eating habits and possibly even weight loss .

SHAKES OR FOOD ?

Here is where opinions and lifestyle come into play so let me preface this by saying that personally ( and I suggest you do ) I am looking for 3 things out of breakfast . It needs to be 1. Easy/fast to make 2. Have enough flavor for me to at least tolerate 3. Satiate my appetite for a minimal of 2 hours. With the latter guideline in mind , you should know that 30g of a low-carb / high protein shake ( which I suggest if you go that route ) will not satiate your appetite for more than 30 minutes to an hour therefore I suggest having actual food so it takes longer to digest and stabilizes your blood sugar levels .

WHAT FOOD SOURCES OF PROTEIN ARE OPTIMAL ?

You already know where to get protein from so to talk about all of your options would create incriminate me for information abuse  . Take it a step further , you already know that ground ANYTHING is more fatty ( not good fat ) ,  than a lean cut of anything . For the purpose of this post though , let’s narrow it down to the 1 thing you can use in many forms to create a fast , long-lasting , flavorful , protein packed breakfast .  EGGS BABY ! Nuff said .

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE

I just taught you how to fish but let me give you one to take home as well since you’re standing there with your pole in your hand .

Ingredients

2 teaspoons macadamia oil

2 cloves garlic

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup chicken broth

1 teaspoon chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce

Directions

1. Pour 1 teaspoon oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook 1 minute. Mix in the black beans, chicken broth, and chiles. Simmer until beans 5 minutes, or until heated through. Turn off heat, and keep warm.
2. Place the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a skillet, and heat over medium heat. Crack eggs into a non-stick skillet, and scramble to desired firmness.
3. Top eggs with black bean mixture and a layer of salsa. Serve immediately.
