Mornings chaotic? These on the go recipes are a total breakfast game-changer.

By: Rebecca Jacobs

Breakfast can be tricky for all of us. It may be the last thing on our endless to-do list of things we have to do before we head out the door. But did you know that research shows that eating a high protein breakfast may help reduce cravings? Not only that, but protein helps keep us full, so if you tend to reach for a sugary snack by 10 AM, it may be time to up your protein at breakfast. 

But, here’s the thing. Getting a nourishing breakfast in each morning can seem like a difficult task, especially if you have an early start to your day with a million things to get done before the day gets rolling. Hectic mornings can cause you to unintentionally skip breakfast, simply because you run out of time. The problem is that skipping breakfast or just reaching for something sugary on the go could leave you with low energy and feeling irritable as you start your day.  

Sound familiar? Good news — we’re sharing five on-the-go high-protein breakfast recipes that will completely change your breakfast game. Each recipe is not only rich in protein but full of wholesome ingredients to keep your body nourished all morning long.
