Ok, so you wake-up with healthy intentions…You skip high-cal coffee drinks, resist office donuts and you even make smart choices at lunch, BUT at 3:00 those afternoon cravings takeover your brain & sabotage all of your hard work. If this sounds familiar, here’s the fix: Eat a high protein breakfast.
New research from the University of Missouri found eating a high protein breakfast (about 35 grams) may help control cravings later in the day. (People felt the effects in just three days!)
Bacon & eggs aren’t the only way to get AM protein. Go high-PRO w/ one of these vegetarian options:
1) AT+T (Avocado Toast + Tempeh)
Spread mashed avocado onto sprouted whole grain toast. Top w/ seasoned tempeh strips & sliced tomatoes.
2) Deluxe Quinoa Bowl
Top cooked quinoa w/ milk, chopped nuts, frozen/thawed cherries, chia seeds & cinnamon.
3) Berry-Oat Parfait
Layer cooked oatmeal, Greek yogurt and berries. Top w/ ground flaxseed & a drizzle of honey.
